Nevada Copper, Aurubis, Nordex - Fueling the energy transition!

  • Copper
  • Electromobility

A study commissioned by the International Copper Association (ICA) concludes that copper demand will be strongly driven by the massive expansion of cabling for solar, wind power and electric vehicle infrastructure. Experts estimate that the volumes demanded from the solar and wind sectors will multiply by 2040. A projected increase in the number of charging ports for electric vehicles from 3.2 million in 2021 to 152.3 million in 2040 will exponentially increase copper demand in this sector. As a result, an increasing supply shortage is emerging, which in turn will lead to further price increases for the industrial metal. Copper producers such as Nevada Copper or recycling companies such as Aurubis will benefit from these general conditions.

Aurubis, Nevada Copper, Daimler - Copper: Fueling the mobility and climate shift

  • Copper

No metal represents the step into our electrical century more than copper. The reddish shimmering metal with excellent conductivity is in demand wherever electricity is concerned. Experts estimate that about three to four times as much copper needs to be installed in e-cars than in a conventional combustion engine for mid-range cars, which currently comes to about 25kg of copper. Due to the high demand, copper consumption could increase more than tenfold in the next ten years.

Memiontec, Bayer, Aurubis - Do not miss this trend!

  • Investments

According to estimates by some experts, water demand will already exceed supply by 40% in 2030. That is a dramatic forecast and should wake us up. Of course, climate change is an influencing factor. The increasing water consumption of agriculture in the wake of the growing population presents us with major challenges. In addition, water treatment plays a central role. Some promising investment ideas can be derived from the scarcity problem of the vital resource water.

Aurubis, Osino Resources, ThyssenKrupp - Winners of the digitalization, energy transition and e-mobility trends

  • Gold

The three trends mentioned have one thing in common: they need electricity. And wherever electrons do work, materials for transporting and storing electricity are in demand. Different materials are used depending on the application. Gold, for example, is mainly used in connectors, as is silver, but it is also found in numerous coatings, e.g., for seat heaters or in infotainment systems. Copper, on the other hand, is the material of choice for all cable connections, while materials such as lithium or cobalt are needed to store electricity or hydrogen in the future. The following companies are fully in line with the trend with their products and should not be missing in any portfolio.

Glencore, Almonty, Aurubis - Scarcity drives share price

  • Resources

If you have listened to the old master of the stock market André Kostolany, then you have thought about aluminum in the past, and that's a good thing. If you bet on companies that focus on industrial metals or strategic metals, you should see a good performance next year. Rising demand in the wake of electromobility is driving up the price of copper. But so-called strategic metals, such as tungsten, are also used in various ways and are difficult to substitute. The availability of strategic metals is more limited than that of industrial metals. At times, there can be a large gap between supply and demand. Investors then profit from scarcity prices. We reveal where opportunities are tempting.

Defense Metals, Orocobre, Aurubis – Everyone is a specialist!

  • Metals

Strategic metals are indispensable. They are very rare in the earth's crust and only occur in certain places. For the free economy, there is a procurement problem per se, because, on the one hand, China has the largest reserves, on the other hand, the states intervene in the distribution of the existing quotas. In times of a pandemic, mine closures lead to minor shortages in these metals, but prices are usually negotiated with buyers on a long-term basis. Since the metals usually cannot be procured in alternative ways, it is in everyone's interest to improve the supply situation. But how to procure, if not steal...?
