copper busbars were already widely used in various industries due to their excellent electrical conductivity, thermal properties, and mechanical strength. Copper busbars have been traditionally employed in power distribution systems, switchboards, electrical panels, and other applications where efficient power transmission is crucial. Aging power infrastructure in many countries demands modernization to ensure reliability and efficiency. Copper busbars are often chosen for upgrading electrical systems due to their compatibility with existing infrastructure and their ability to handle higher power loads.

Busbar market from aluminum segment will expand over 6% by 2025. Aluminum busbars have gained significant popularity in various industries due to their advantageous properties such as lightweight, high conductivity, and cost-effectiveness compared to traditional copper busbars. While copper remains a widely used material for busbars, aluminum has been steadily gaining traction in the market.

In addition, aluminum is significantly lighter than copper, which is particularly advantageous in applications where weight is a concern, such as in electric vehicles (EVs) and aerospace industries. The use of aluminum busbars helps reduce the overall weight of these systems and improves energy efficiency. Moreover, aluminum is a highly recyclable material, and its production requires less energy compared to copper. As sustainability and environmental concerns continue to grow, the use of aluminum busbars aligns with the goal of reducing carbon footprints and promoting a circular economy.
