SHANGHAI, Aug. 11 (SMM) – There is huge market potential to replace copper with aluminum in China’s cable industry, reported. 

Market value of China’s aluminum alloy cable approached 13 million yuan ($2.1 million) in 2014. However, China’s rate of substituting aluminum alloy for copper in cable is just 3%-5% at present, well below 55% in Japan. Currently, the rate of using aluminum alloy and Al-Mg-Si alloy to replace copper cable has reached 70%-75% in the US, added, quoting data from Research and Markets.
