Copper demand has surged in recent years due to urbanization in emerging markets such as China and India. As emerging market’s populations move to cities, the need for new residential housing, transportation and infrastructure arises. Consolidation and improvement in operations of railways by bringing in better technology will also be a big positive for the copper industry. Wires and Cables are integral components of Electrical & Power, Infrastructure, Real Estate and IT industries which are key for the development of the ‘100 Smart Cities’ in India. Other upcoming and strategic areas where demand will grow include electric vehicle, renewable energy, aquaculture, energy efficient appliances and defence.
The domestic consumption is said to accelerate through various initiatives under ‘Goods and Service Tax’, ‘Make in India’ and ‘Housing for All’. There has been a shift, right from market fundamentals to roles of industry players in the last few years. With this many are looking forward to improvement in market conditions with the support of Indian Government.
