Copper Market – Snapshot

The global copper market is likely to observe growth due to its growing prominence across several end use sectors. In the periodic table, copper is the 29th element and is known to be a transition metal. It comes with an atomic weight of 63.55 amu (atomic mass units) and atomic number of 29. This soft and shiny metal finds utilization in a wide array of applications. In its very basic form, copper is highly malleable, which makes it suitable for use in several applications.

Owing to its soft nature, copper is quite frequently utilized as an alloy. Brass and bronze are two of the common copper alloys. Brass is a combination of zinc and copper and bronze is a mixture of tin and copper. Brass is widely utilized in the making of various instruments, such as brass instruments. Copper is considered as a good conductor of electricity, which is highly suitable for use in electrical wiring systems. These uses of copper are likely to work in favor of the global copper market in the years to come.
