Copper foil is a versatile material used in various industries, notably electronics and construction. Its exceptional electrical conductivity makes it crucial for manufacturing printed circuit boards (PCBs) and electrical components. In construction, it’s employed for roofing, flashing, and as a decorative element. Copper foil’s malleability allows it to be easily shaped and adhered to various surfaces, making it a valuable choice for diverse applications that require both conductivity and durability.

The robust growth of the copper foil industry can be credited to the surge in demand for electronic gadgets like tablets, laptops, and mobile phones. The demand for electronic gadgets can be traced back to the rise in online education programs, digitization, and the Internet of Things (IoT). A Couple of factors such as elevating discretionary income, several digitization initiatives by governments, favorable policies, and economical internet usage plans, etc., in the developing economies, are stimulating market development.

The global copper foil market size is predicted to register a CAGR of 7.4% over the forecast period, as per FMI’s analysis. The industry’s size is anticipated to increase from US$ 6,732.3 million in 2023 to US$ 13,746.9 million by 2033 end.

The Rising prevalence of electric vehicles in developed countries like the United States, the United Kingdom, and Germany, is anticipated to spur the utilization of copper foils. Electric automobiles or EVs are observing heightened demand, underpinned by regulations on carbon emissions and accelerating awareness pertaining to environmental concerns. Building onto the rising prevalence of EVs, automotive manufacturers like MG Motors and Renault presented hybrid vehicles in emerging economies to further the market growth of EVs. As a result, the copper foil industry is also benefitting from this shift in consumer preference.
