Global Oxygen-free copper Market - Overview

According to the latest research report, the global Oxygen-Free Copper Market is projected to be worth USD 32 billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of 6.1% during the forecast period (2021 - 2030), The market was valued at USD 19.25 billion in 2020.

Oxygen-free copper (OFC), also known as oxygen-free high thermal conductivity copper, is a group of wrought copper alloys that are electrolytically refined to reduce the oxygen level to 0.001%. Oxygen-free copper is highly conductive and is widely used in industrial applications, including electrical and electronics, automotive, cryogenic and optical applications, and many more. High demand from electrical and electronics and increasing sales of electric vehicles are some of the factors which are expected to propel the growth of the global oxygen-free copper market share. Furthermore, the advancement in oxygen-free copper and widening scope of applications in diverse end-use industries further fuel the growth of the global market. However, the high processing cost of oxygen-free copper and potential substitutes hamper the market's growth.

Market Dynamics

The increasing demand for environment-friendly Oxygen-free copper is likely to remain a major trend within the global oxygen free copper wire over the forecast period. Environment-friendly Oxygen-free copper do not contain VOCs (volatile organic compounds), which reduces the emission of environmentally harmful gases from the coatings and makes them more environmentally viable. This is likely to remain a major trend in the global Oxygen-free copper Market, as governments all over the world have given their support to the development of VOC-free Oxygen-free copper through incentives to the use of VOC-free coatings or bans on the use of VOC-containing Oxygen-free copper. Companies that develop effective Oxygen-free copper without VOCs are likely to prosper in the market over the forecast period.
