On a roll: Renewed activity in downstream construction markets will spur industry demand

Copper is inextricably linked to worldwide construction activity. Its price, although generally following demand and supply trends, is also an indicator of expectations for economic growth, since the commodity is traded freely in global financial markets. Beyond construction, copper is also heavily connected to the automobile, electronics, electrical equipment and appliances manufacturing industries, due to its naturally high thermal and electrical conductivity characteristics. Due primarily to sharp drops in copper prices in recent years, revenue for the Copper Rolling, Drawing and Extruding industry is expected to decline over the five years to 2017...purchase to read more.

Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • Industry revenue declined due to low copper prices, weak demand and decreasing export volumes
  • Industry participation has grown marginally over the past five years
  • The construction market will continue to be the major source of demand for industry products
  • Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

    The Copper Rolling, Drawing and Extruding industry operates with a moderate level of capital intensity. Like most manufacturers, copper wire, pipe and shape producers use heavy equipment and machinery to heat, cut and manipulate raw materials. While workers skilled in the use of this machinery are essential to the process, industry operation is more reliant on capital equipment. In 2017, depreciation costs are estimated to account for 1.3% of revenue, compared with a comparatively low revenue share for wages of 7.0%. For every dollar spent on wages, the average operator is expected to allocate $0.19 toward capital investment in 2017...purchase to read more.

    Drawing
  • A process for producing wire, bar or tube by pulling metal, increasing its length and reducing its diameter. Wire is typically pulled through a series of dies (holes) of decreasing size.
  • Extruding
  • Forcing solid, usually heated, metal through an opening with the shape as the desired end product. Typically, a hydraulically operated ram is used to push the metal through the opening.
  • Recrystallization
  • The change in grain structure that occurs when a metal is annealed.
  • Rolling
  • A process that reduces the thickness of a piece of metal by passing it through successive rotating mills that compress the metal.
