Adoption of hybrid vehicles and EVs by consumers in Europe and North America is likely to spike the demand for copper foils. In addition, need for foils in the production of printed circuit boards (PCBs) and lithium-ion batteries is certain to open up new avenues for the market.

Investments and collaborations are on the rise by EV manufacturers. They are increasingly investing in regions of interest to reduce the dependence on imports and minimize production costs. This is exemplified by the collaboration between BMW and Northvolt AB to build an EV battery plant in 2018. The burgeoning automotive sector is likely to trigger immense demand from the copper foil market till 2023. This can be attributed to high sales of cars coupled with the need for foils in manufacturing automotive components.

Thin copper foils have gained prominence owing to their lightweight nature and high performance in end-use industries. This in tune with the shift to better production processes in tune with environmental regulations.

Segmentation Analysis

The Copper Foil Market is segmented by type and application.

By type, electrodeposited foils can touch a value of USD 11,158 million by 2023. The demand for these foils in printed circuit boards (PCBs) and rigid circuits can facilitate segment growth throughout the forecast period. The use of PCBs in the consumer electronics sector is predicted to drive the demand in the segment. Rolled copper foils, on the other hand, is expected to generate USD 6,163.8 million by 2023, growing at 8.50% CAGR during the assessment period.

By application, the electrical & electronics segment is touted to reach a value of USD 7,650.1 million by 2023. This can be attributed to the demand for PCBs and lithium-ion batteries in consumer electronic products. Sales of smartphones is likely to bolster the segment demand till the end of the forecast period. The automotive segment, on the other hand, can reach USD 5,457.6 million by 2023. Sales of electric and hybrid vehicles is projected to drive segment growth.

Regional Analysis

Region-wise, the copper foil market is segmented into North America, Latin America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), and the Middle East & Africa (MEA). APAC accounted for 53.3% market share in 2017, followed by 18.2% share by Europe, and 16.7% share by North America.

The APAC region is predicted to generate close to USD 9,648.7 million by 2023. Rapid urbanization and increased demand for electronic products is expected to boost market sales in the region.
