Copper belongs without doubt to the most important metals industry. It takes place in almost any type of electrical installation, as it directs the current flow very well. Even in the heat and air conditioning is used because it also transports heat well. We distinguish different kinds of copper: OF-copper, copper-SE, ETP-copper, etc. The demand has increased over the last few years by the entry of China, and this has impacted by a doubling of the price of 8000 USD per ton last year alone.
The stormy growing economies in emerging countries should also ensure the future for rising copper prices.
