Throughout the History of Copper Foil IV

Analysis of the global status of the copper foil industry


Global capacity utilization has increased year by year. Industry supply has turned from surplus to in short supply.
From the global copper foil material industry capacity and production data: the production capacity increased from 591,000 tons in 2011 to 632,000 tons in 2016, with a compound annual growth rate of 1.35%; production increased from 354,400 tons in 2016 to 2016. The annual growth rate of 506,300 tons is 7.64%.
Although the global production capacity has not increased much in recent years, the output of the industry is steadily increasing, and the capacity utilization rate is gradually increasing. From 60% in 2011 to 80% in 2016, the supply of the industry is slowly increasing. The excess of the year turned to a situation of short supply.

According to the data of relevant industry associations, the global copper foil production capacity will reach 78/88 million tons in 2017-2018, with growth rates of 23.41% and 12.82% respectively, of which China is the main contributor to the release of future capacity.




Domestic capacity production analysis

China's copper foil production capacity increased from 232,700 tons in 2011 to 329,900 tons in 2016, with a compound annual growth rate of 7.17%. The output increased from 194,300 tons in 2011 to 291,600 tons in 2016, with a compound annual growth rate of 8.46 million. %, growth data of production capacity and output in recent years are better than the global average. In terms of capacity utilization, China has basically maintained at around 80% in recent years, which is significantly better than global industry data.


The trend of new energy vehicles is unstoppable. The demand for lithium copper foil is rising step by step.

From the classification of China's primary copper consumption, copper consumption mainly includes copper rod wire, copper strip, copper rod, copper tube, copper foil and so on.
