Copper Rolling, Drawing & Extruding in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Copper Rolling, Drawing & Extruding in the US

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 2018. However, over the next five years, the industry is expected to marginally rebound as copper prices improve and demand from construction continues to strengthen, in addition to improving demand from other downstream industries.

Companies in this industry purchase refined and scrap copper to produce a range of fabricated products, such as wire, sheet, tubes, pipes, strips and bars, through rolling, drawing and extruding processes. This industry does not include companies that primarily smelt and refine copper or manufacture wire products from purchased wire.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
