The demand for copper is surging due to its critical role in several rapidly growing sectors. Large-scale infrastructure investments, particularly in emerging economies, require substantial amounts of copper for urbanization, transportation development, and renewable energy projects (Deloitte United States) (World Bank). The global shift towards renewable energy sources like wind and solar power further amplifies copper demand, as these technologies rely heavily on copper for cables, inverters, and other components (Deloitte United States) (IEA). Additionally, the expansion of electric vehicles, which depend on copper-intensive components such as electric motors and batteries, is driving significant increases in copper usage (CSIS) (IEA). Technological advancements in electronics, telecommunications, and computing, including the proliferation of 5G networks and IoT devices, also contribute to the rising demand for copper (Deloitte United States) (IEA).

Copper prices keep rising.
