Copper Foil Market Outlook - 2027

The global copper foil market was valued at $12.4 billion in 2019, and is projected to reach $21.8 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.2% from 2020 to 2027.

The COVID-19 pandemic disrupted the supply chain of copper foil, ranging from copper production to decline in the sale of electronics products

Copper foil is a thin sheet of copper in the thickness range of few microns formed either rolling copper sheet or electrodeposition process. Copper is a good conductor of electricity, and is highly malleable as well as ductile. This allows copper to be formed into extremely thin sheets. It is used in the printed circuit boards (PCBs) for telecommunications equipment such as PCs and mobile phones. In addition, it finds its application as a substrate for coating anode materials in Li-Ion batteries.

The expansion of the electronics industry, consisting of various electronic systems and devices, is the major driver of the global copper foil market. This is attributed to the fact that copper foil is used in PCBs, which forms the fundamental part of modern electronics applications ranging from consumer electronics to military electronics such as in navigation, missiles, and surveillance.  A major chunk of military budget around the world is redirected toward purchasing new electronic systems or upgrading the existing ones.  

Consumer electronics include TV, washing machine, computer, smartphones, oven, and refrigerator. As smartphones become lighter and feature more advanced functions, the use of rolled copper foil is increasing rapidly. According to a Swedish multinational telecommunications company, Ericsson, a total of around 410 million additional smartphone users are expected in India alone by 2025. Smartphones sales have increased significantly, due to the easy availability of internet services in rural as well as semi-rural areas. In addition, the deployment of 5G internet services is anticipated to increase the adoption of smartphones, as it speed up internet speeds. Ericsson further states that 5G is estimated to register 45% of global mobile data traffic by 2025, most of which is likely to be driven by smartphone users. Integration of advanced technologies such as augmented reality (AR) and Internet of Things (IoT) in consumer electronics is considerably boosting the electronics sales. Such innovations are projected offer potential opportunities for copper foil-based electronic components, thus driving the global copper foil market growth. Furthermore, the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) is expected to play a significant role in the growth of the copper foil market during the forecast period. EV battery cells are currently lithium-ion-based. They consist of built-up layers of coated aluminum and copper foil, which are layered together with graphite (anode) and lithium metal oxide (cathode). Favorable government policies and financial incentives in the form of grants or tax rebates are driving the EV sales, globally. 

However, the availability of aluminum foil as a substitute to copper foil and shortage in high yield copper supply in the future act as major restraints of the global copper foil market growth. Copper price is anticipated to increase significantly in the coming decades. Though it may not be physically scarce, increase in demand and decrease in resource quality are likely to affect copper foil prices. However, the supply scarcity of copper can be improved by promoting copper through government policies. On the contrary, development of new copper foil products is anticipated to offer remunerative opportunities for expansion of the global copper foil market during the forecast period. Developments such as improving the surface properties of copper foil, and achieving smaller thickness and weight of the foil will increase product differentiation.  Targray, a major North American supplier of copper, developed exceptionally thin (5μm) battery-grade copper foil for use in consumer electronics and drones. As the battery energy density increases, the amount of copper foil used will increase. However, it will increase the weight of the battery pack, which is undesirable. Hence, producing thinner foils is essential to lighten the pack.

The global copper foil market is segmented into product type, application, and end-user industry. Depending on the product type, the market is fragmented into rolled copper foil and electrodeposited copper foil. Applications of copper foil include circuit boards, batteries, and electromagnetic shielding. The end-user industries of copper foils include electrical & electronics, automotive, industrial equipment, building & construction, and others. Region wise, the market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA. Presently, Asia-Pacific accounts for the largest share of the market, followed by North America and Europe. The major companies profiled in this report include Carl Schlenk AG, Doosan Group, Furukawa Electric Co. Ltd., JXTG Holdings Inc., Mitsui Mining & Smelting Co. Ltd., Rogers Corporation, SKC, Sumitomo Metal Mining Co. Ltd., Targray Technology International Inc., and UACJ Corporation.

Impact Of Covid-19 On The Global Copper Foil Market

  • The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected the global economy and subsequent shrinking of the GDP in global economies, thereby changing consumer spending patterns globally.
  • The pandemic has disrupted the copper mining industry as a result of shortage of workforce. Production has been hit hard as coronavirus cases continue to rise among mine workers in Chile. The country is the world’s largest exporter of the metals, which are essential in almost all electronic products and manufacturing.
  • The global sales of electric vehicles are projected to fall, thus interrupting 10 successive years of strong growth. In addition, due to the lockdown and travel restrictions, the crude oil prices dropped significantly. Low oil prices reduced the economic viability of the EV adoption as compared to combustion vehicles. 
  • Similar to EVs, the consumer electronics demand witnessed a decline, as consumers spending pattern changed drastically. 
  • Global sales of smartphones declined in the early 2020 as a result of plant closures in China. China is a global leader in smartphone production, and is the first country to be affected by the pandemic. Hence, post the lockdown in China, the supply of smartphones declined. 
  • However, the demand for PCs and smartphones spiked during the fourth quarter. High demand for PCs was attributed to increase in remote learning and home office. 
  • Thus, the abovementioned factors are expected to hamper the global copper foil market growth during the forecast period.
