The Copper Clad Steel Wire Market is estimated to be valued at US$ 0.99 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 10% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
Copper clad steel wire is produced by bonding a thin layer of copper onto the surface of steel wire through hot-dipping or electroplating processes. It combines the conductivity of copper and strength of steel. Copper clad steel wire is used in grounding systems, power cables, transmission lines and other applications that require high conductivity as well as mechanical strength. It finds widespread adoption in construction, automotive and electronics industries due to its superior properties and cost-effectiveness.
Copper clad steel wire market is driven by the growing infrastructure development activities across both developing and developed nations which is increasing the demand for power transmission and distribution. Construction of new commercial and residential buildings along with renovation of existing infrastructure requires extensive power distribution network using copper clad steel wires for grounding and power cables applications. Second major driver is increasing sales of electric vehicles which uses large number of copper clad steel wires in batteries packs, motors and charging systems. This is positively impacting the market growth over the forecast period.
The global copper clad steel wire market is dominated by the electrical segment. Copper clad steel wire has applications such as grounding, power cables and magnet wires, where its properties of high conductivity and strength are utilized.
