Global Electrolytic Copper Foil Market - Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023

This report provides a quantitative analysis of the current trends, estimations, and dynamics from 2016 to 2023 to identify the prevailing market opportunities.


Portland, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/29/2017 -- An electrolytic copper foil is a foil-based form of copper with a thickness generally less than 80m. A rolled copper foil is made by annealing and rolling the electrolytic copper uninterruptedly. The production process involves electrodepositing copper to a rolling drum and then again rolling it up. For the process of electrodeposition, high-grade copper is dissolved in an acid to form a copper electrolyte. This copper electrolyte solution is then pumped into electrically charged rotating drums. On these drums, a thin film of copper is then electrodeposited. This process is also called as electrolytic plating. Electrolytic copper foils provide exceptional tensile strength as well as increased elongation characteristics. These foils are most commonly used as a super conductor in printed circuit boards as well as flexible connectors. Since, copper possess high electrical conductivity, and is extraordinarily ductile and malleable, it makes it one of the most extensively used metals in the ever emerging electrical and electronics industry.

Access to the full summary:

The global electrolytic copper foil market witnesses huge potential growth opportunities in the past few years. Electrolytic copper foils are utilized for low-power and high-energy applications including Li-ion batteries for cell phones, laptops, and other consumer electronics. These foils are employed as negative electrode current collectors in Li-ion batteries. Thus, increase in growth in the demand for laptops and smartphones is anticipated to drive the global electrolytic copper foil market. In addition, growing applications of electrolytic copper foils in printed circuit board (PCB) coupled with an increase in the importance of flexible electronics are some other key aspects anticipated to fuel the growth of the market. However, the introduction of super conductors and rise in applications of semiconductors are some factors that hamper the overall market growth.
