Copper is used as the metal of choice in the manufacture and manufacture of tubes and pipes, due to

to its properties such as malleability, ductility, high thermal and electrical conductivity, versatility and recyclability. Copper is an excellent pipe material for water distribution networks. Copper pipes and tubes are used in batteries and windings; and copper rotors are used in electric motors, wiring, busbars and charging infrastructure. Copper pipes do not release toxic substances into the water and do not allow gases to diffuse through the pipe wall. These properties make copper pipe and tubing highly preferable over other types of piping materials such as stainless steel and PVA (polyvinyl chloride) pipe and tubing.

Copper pipes prevent bad smells or other disturbing influences from entering the system and impairing the water quality. Copper pipes and tubes are found in nearly every home in the United States and Europe due to their widespread use in plumbing; and heating and cooling applications. Increasing application of bending copper pipe, copper water pipe and copper gas pipe across the globe is estimated to contribute to the revenue growth of copper pipe and tubing market over the course of the forecast period. Significant growth in the HVAC and refrigeration sector presents the greatest opportunity for manufacturers in the copper pipe and tube market.

In terms of application, the global copper pipes and tubes market has been categorized into HAVAC and refrigeration, industrial heat exchange equipment, plumbing, and others. The HVAC and refrigeration segment accounted for around 50% of the value share in 2021, and it is expected to grow at a rapid rate during the forecast period. Rising disposable income and sales of HVAC and refrigeration systems are expected to drive the copper pipe and tube market. The boom in the construction sector and architectural projects is also expected to boost the demand for copper pipes and tubes used in the water supply network. Rigid copper tubing is used to supply hot and cold water to water taps in homes.

In air conditioning and refrigeration systems, copper tubes are used to circulate refrigerants at extreme pressures and temperatures between different components such as compressors, condensers, expansion valve and evaporators. Copper tubing has almost replaced aluminum tubing and pipe used in the HVAC and refrigeration industry in recent years, as the thermal conductivity of copper tubing is eight times that of aluminum tubing. In addition, copper tubing is easier to repair and maintain; and provide superior strength, reliability, resistance to mechanical damage and other external damage. Copper tubes have excellent heat transfer characteristics compared to aluminum tubes and pipes. Rapid urbanization and increased construction activities have led to the development of IT parks, shopping malls, high-rise apartments and skyscrapers, which require efficient HVAC systems for cooling and heating. Hence, an increase in the demand for HVAC systems in the construction sector is expected to drive the market for copper pipes and tubes.

Copper tubes and pipes are widely used in heat exchangers because copper has desirable properties such as high thermal conductivity, biofouling resistance, corrosion resistance, resistance to rupture by creep, fatigue resistance, hardness and thermal expansion. Other favorable properties include tensile strength, yield strength, high melting point, antimicrobial properties, ease of fabrication and ease of assembly. The increase in demand for thermally efficient heating equipment has led to an increase in demand for raw materials and components such as flexible copper pipes and tubes. The increasing demand for heating equipment such as furnaces, boilers and heat pumps in various industries, such as mining, oil and gas, ferrous and non-ferrous metal processing, marine, aviation, and food and beverage, is expected to drive the global heat exchange equipment market. Hence, the growth of the heat exchange equipment market is expected to propel the global copper pipe and tube market.

Copper and copper alloy pipes and tubes are widely used in harsh environments and applications due to their excellent corrosion resistance. They provide superior service in several applications requiring resistance to atmospheric exposure, such as roofing and other architectural uses, hardware, building facades, grilles, handrails, lock bodies, door handles and protective plates. Copper-nickel tubes provide superior resistance to aqueous solutions and are widely used for condenser tubes and heat exchanger tubes in recirculating vapor systems. They are superior to copper and other copper alloys in resisting acid solutions. They offer high resistance to stress corrosion, cracking and impact corrosion.
