Electrodeposited copper foils play a significant role in the electronic industry and are used in the manufacturing of printed circuit boards (PCBs). Increasing demand for consumer electronic products and smartphones across the globe has resulted in a significant rise in the production of PCBs in the recent past. Electrodeposited copper foils are used extensively in PCB manufacturing. Along with this, electrodeposited copper foils are also used for the manufacturing of copper clad laminates. Thus, growth in the production of electronic products in developing countries is expected to create healthy growth opportunities for the global electrodeposited copper foils market. Moreover, increasing demand for electrodeposited copper foils for the manufacturing of Lithium-ion batteries for electrical vehicle will provide impetus to the growth of the Electrodeposited copper foils market during the forecast period. Therefore, increasing demand/sale of hybrid/electric vehicles across the globe wherein Lithium-ion batteries are mainly used as a power source will directly influence the electrodeposited copper foils market. It is expected that demand for Lithium-ion batteries will register around 16% CAGR over the forecast period and will drive the demand in the electrodeposited copper foils market over the forecast period. Apart from this, the global electrodeposited copper foils market is estimated to face certain challenges in terms of pricing. This can mainly be attributed to rising prices of raw material i.e. copper and increasing gap between supply and demand, owing to which prices of electrodeposited copper foils are expected to witness above 3% Y-o-Y growth in the coming years. Increasing prices of electrodeposited copper foils may affect the growth of the electrodeposited copper foils market in near future.
