Oxygen-Free Copper Market by Grade (Cu-OF, Cu-OFE), Product Form (Wire, Strips, Busbar & Rod, Others), End-use Industry (Electronics & Electrical, Automotive, Others), & Region

The oxygen-free copper market is projected to grow from USD 19.9 billion in 2020 to USD 25.9 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period. Increasing demand for oxygen-free copper from the electronics & electrical end-use industry, especially in the Asia Pacific region, is expected to drive the demand for oxygen-free copper in the near future. The electronics & electrical end-use industry is estimated to account for an 76% share of the oxygen-free copper market, in terms of value, in 2019.

The Asia Pacific is the most attractive market for oxygen-free copper due to the rapid socio-economic development in the region. This region is a prospective market for the growth and demand of electronics & electrical and automotive, among other industries. Countries in this region such as Japan, China, Korea, Taiwan, India, and Singapore are primary centers for manufacturing and sale of electrical & electronic goods, which are the major end-users of oxygen-free copper. The Asia Pacific region is a lucrative market for automobiles and is witnessing a shift toward EVs, such as Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs).

The oxygen-free copper market is dominated by major players such as KGHM Polska Miedz SA (Poland), Hitachi Metals Neomaterials Ltd. (Japan), Zhejiang Libo Holding Group (China), Mitsubishi Materials Corporation (Japan), Metrod Holdings Berhad (Malaysia), Aviva Metals (US), KME Germany GmbH (Germany), and Sam Dong (South Korea). These players have adopted growth strategies, such as acquisitions and expansions to further expand their presence in the global oxygen-free copper market. Aqcuisitions were the most dominating strategy adopted by major players from 2017 to 2020, which helped them to expand their global presence and broaden their customer base.
