The global oxygen free copper market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.27% during the period 2017-2021.
The report, Global Oxygen Free Copper Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the Key vendors operating in this market.
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is the increasing demand in specific electronic equipment. One of the major reasons for the increasing demand for oxygen free copper is the efficiency of OFHC in powerful and specialist electronic equipment, including those used in the generation of microwaves. Microwaves refer to the invisible, short wavelength, and super-energetic radio waves used in radar navigation equipment and microwave ovens.
Microwaves comprise a magnetron, at the heart of which is a ring shaped OFHC copper cathode that emits and vibrates microwaves in a vacuum pertaining to an anode. The microwaves are then channeled using an OFHC waveguide, either into the cooking compartment connected to the microwave oven or are beamed out by a satellite or an antenna into the air in radar equipment.
