Oxygen Free Copper Bars Market Overview

Global oxygen free copper bars market size is estimated to reach US$5.5 billion by 2027, after growing at a CAGR of 5.6% from 2022-2027. Oxygen free copper bars are high conductive copper alloys which are produced by melting copper in the presence of carbon or carbonaceous gases to reabsorb oxygen. They are of three types namely oxygen-free electronic, oxygen free high conductive and electrolytic tough pitch. The bars due to their rich electrical & mechanical properties have high applicability in electronic, automotive, construction and telecommunications sector, and are majorly used in plasma deposition process for making semiconductors components. Factors like increase in consumption of semiconductors from end users, growing production of electric vehicles, increase in residential construction and high consumption of electric devices like cell-phones are driving the growth of global oxygen free copper bars market. Oxygen free copper bars are majorly used in making particle accelerators components, and the regulations imposed by government organization on such device to reduce radioactive waste can also restrict usage of oxygen free copper bars. This can hamper the growth of global oxygen free copper bars industry.

COVID-19 Impact

The lockdown imposed by countries all across the world had a negative impact on end users of oxygen free copper bars like electronic, automotive and construction. In electronic sector, oxygen free copper bar is used in plasma deposition process for making semiconductor, in automotive sector it used in radiators, e-vehicle batteries, while in residential building it is used in home electric panel. The lack of availability of raw materials and workers, decreased productivity of these sectors. For instance, according to International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers, in 2020, global automobile production was 77.7 million units showing decrease of 13%. Further, according to Japan’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, in March 2020, residential construction decreased to -7.6% compared to 10% increase in 2019. Also, according to World Semiconductor Trade Statistics, in 2020, the first quarter sale of semi-conductor in the U.S decreased by 3.6% compared to the same period in 2019. Such decrease in production and sales in automotive vehicles and semiconductors negatively impacted the usage of oxygen free copper bars in them. This negatively impacted the growth of global oxygen free copper bars industry.
