Copper – the defining metal of a new age

Copper is in high demand. It is already the third largest metals market by U.S. dollar value, behind iron ore and gold, and is favoured for its durability and malleability. These qualities have made copper central to construction, transportation, machinery, consumer goods, and more.

Copper plays a critical role in society, not least because the metal’s large market size and wide-ranging applications have historically made its price a barometer of the global economy.

Copper

Perhaps most importantly, copper has superior conductivity, second only to silver. This has made it central to electricity transmission. And as decarbonisation means electrification, copper is becoming even more essential. As a result, demand for copper has the potential to outstrip supply as the clean energy transition takes hold.

But that’s not all. The AI revolution will add to electricity demand, necessitating electric grid expansions and upgrades.
