Led by the developing economies in Asia, global demand for copper products remained buoyant in 2007. According to the International Copper Study Group¹ refined usage increased by 4% to a record 18.3 million tonnes. While Europe’s demand was down by 2.5%, China’s economic expansion resulted in it using 27% of the world’s copper in 2007, up from 18% in just five years.
Whether it is to improve the efficiency and performance of applications across energy and healthcare, or to make transportation, architecture and heating and cooling systems more environmentally friendly, copper has never been more important for the sustainable growth of the EU.
