About copper

Investing in copper

Copper (Cu on the periodic table) is the second-best conductor of electricity (after silver). As copper is cheaper than silver, it is primarily used when larger volumes are required. By investing in copper, you get exposure to a metal that contributes to the green transition.

By monitoring the price of copper, it is said you are able to predict the overall health of the world economy, hence the term "Doctor Copper" was coined. Generally, rising copper prices indicate strong demand for copper and, therefore, a growing global economy.

The demand for copper is expected to increase in the coming years, a major reason being the electrification of our society. As copper is used in cables, electric motors, batteries, electric cars, and wind turbines, among others, an increased demand for these products will affect the price of the metal.

Copper also plays a crucial role in human space exploration. Due to its excellent ability to conduct electricity and heat, copper is the third most used metal in rockets. For instance, the inside of rocket engines is protected by a layer of copper – the temperature in the engine can reach close to 3,000 degrees.
