Comprehensive Sales Analysis: Historic to Futuristic

Copper is used extensively in the construction of high-tech automobiles due to its excellent conductive properties. Another factor for copper wires and tubes is the convergence of the electrical industry and the automotive sector in the form of electric vehicles.

In recent decades, there has been an increased focus on the sustainability of material usage, where the idea of metal reuse and recycling plays a significant part in the choice of material and acceptability of goods. Recycling reduces energy use, emissions, and waste disposal while extending the useful life of materials.

Copper granulator is primarily used to separate metal trash from non-metal garbage. A full copper granulating system consists of primary pulverization, sorting, removal of dust, secondary pulverization, and electrostatic sorting. The copper metal and non-metal components will then be totally separated. The copper that comes out of the granulator is 100% pure and ready to be melted and then can be used to make new products.

  • Short-Term Growth Projection (2023-2026): Burgeoning utilization of copper granulator in copper recycling plants positively impacts the market growth.
  • Medium-Term Growth Projection (2027-2029): Germany and UK are estimated to observe high demand for copper granulator on the back of the growing focus of manufacturers on recycling to reduce cost, coupled with favorable government initiatives.
  • Long-Term Growth Projection (2030-2033): Inclination towards recycling 100% of metals along with innovation and upgradation will be responsible for increased demand in the long run.

Over the 2018-2022 historical period, the Europe Copper Granulator market registered a CAGR of 3.3%, and according to the Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 3.6% CAGR between 2023 and 2033.

Market share analysis of copper granulator based on maximum width and country is provided in a nutshell in the above image. Under the processing material segment, the wires sub-segment is estimated to reach a market share of 67.0% in 2023.

“Increasing demand for Copper and Government Strategies to Support Growth”

The constant use of domestic appliances, high-tech devices, and smartphones necessitates a reliable power supply. Due to their inherent ability to provide greater electricity conduction and resistance to abrasion, copper wires, and tubes have found extensive use in the electrical sector for power generation, power distribution, and power transmission in order to meet this demand.

The European Green Deal seeks to lower net emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) and equip Europe to become the first continent to be climate neutral by 2050. The agreement encourages the energy sector's decarburization and works to make energy more accessible and sustainable. Because of its uses in energy production, energy-efficient construction, and electric transportation, copper helps to achieve the objectives of the European Green Deal.

Compared to processing fresh copper, recycling copper uses less energy. It provides energy savings of 85–90%. Recycling copper helps in decreasing the cost and also helps in conserving natural resources.

“Export of Recyclable Materials from Europe to other Countries”

In Europe, the quantity of metal scrap from recycling that satisfies industry standards frequently outpaces the demand and is under-utilized in the manufacture of metals. EU exports its scraps in greater quantities to other nations with poorer environmental, climatic, labor, and social standards.

In 2021, Turkey was the top destination for the export of recyclable raw materials by the EU, EU transferred about 15.2 million tons, followed by India (2.4 million tons) and Egypt (2.0 million tons).

The export of copper to other countries will decrease the recycling of copper and can hamper the demand for copper granulator.

Country-wise Insights

What are the factors driving the market’s growth across Germany?

The automotive sector has been going through an innovative phase and Germany is a hub of automotive manufacturers. Due to the versatility of copper as a material for sending and receiving control signals, sending electrical power, and carrying data, copper has caught the interest of automakers.

By 2035, the German Raw Materials Agency projects that copper consumption will be doubled. The growth of the electrical grid, automobile electric motors, wind energy, and solid-state batteries are the key forces behind this progress.

The German market for copper granulator is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.0% to reach a valuation of US$ 41.7 million by 2033.

What is the market scenario in the UK?

The UK consumes around 15,000 metric tons of refined copper and the demand is continuously increasing. UK imports some of its copper from North America and Chile and has imported copper of worth US$ 2.32 Bn in 2021.

Government and other non-government bodies are focusing on the recycling of copper to decrease the import of copper and maintain a circular economy. Owing to this and increase in copper prices will increase copper recycling in the country which in turn will boost the demand for copper granulators.

The UK market for copper granulator is predicted to reach an estimation of US$ 20.3 million by 2023.

Why are wires the most processed material?

Copper is more ductile and has better tensile resistance than aluminium, as well as excellent corrosion resistance and strength for heat transfer. These factors drive the demand for copper wires.

Copper is more durable, needs less upkeep, and is able to endure fluid pressures found in large systems. These benefits of copper over other metals have led to copper's rapid growth and expansion of its uses in electrical productivity. Automobile design, performance, comfort, and safety all depend heavily on copper. Due to its properties, copper, a versatile mineral, is a vital part of automobiles.

The wires segment is estimated to be valued at US$ 75.6 Mn by the end of 2023 and is anticipated to grow at a CAGR of 3.7% from 2023-2033.

Why does copper granulator with capacity of more than 500 kg/h is expected to rise during the forecast period?

Urbanization, industrialization, and a growing population are increasing the demand for electronic goods. There has been an increase in the demand for copper due to the inclination towards renewable sources of energy.

Granulators with higher capacity are able to process large amounts of copper in a short time span and help in meeting huge demands. To recycle large amounts of copper scrap faster and fulfill the increasing demand of copper, users prefer granulators that are able to process large amounts of copper in the minimum time.

Owing to the above-mentioned facts copper granulator with a capacity of more than 500 Kg/h is expected to grow during the forecast period.
