Scrap copper prices in Hapton are dependent on many variables and yet the price fluctuations are not as great as with some other metals. Copper has been in use for over ten-thousand years yet new uses are being discovered all the time because the metal is versatile and a great conductor. We use more iron and aluminium but copper is a strong third. It’s used in the building construction for electrical wiring, plumbing and more so the scrap prices are influenced by the health of the building industry. The demand for metals is the greatest influence on price and the demand for copper is relatively steady. How fast copper suppliers can mine and transport the metal to meet that demand is a price factor as well.
It’s likely every home contains copper within its mechanicals but it’s also in appliances and most all electronics. During a recession in Hapton, scrap copper prices will likely drop. Current political posturing regarding tariffs on imports and exports could impact the price of copper but likely not as much as steel. Essentially, the price of copper rests with supply and demand. Since the demand is fairly steady the price fluctuations are minimal. At Nelson Metals, we do our part encouraging our customers, new and old to recycle copper from many sources by selling it to us.
