Copper Consumption - Copper and copper alloy products used in building construction, such as electrical wire and power cables, water pipes, plumbing fixtures, roofing materials and brass furnishings account for 40% of the annual consumption of copper. Electric and electronic products account for 25%; industrial machinery and equipment account for 12%; transportation equipment uses 13% and consumer and general products account for 10%.
Nearly all of that 0.7 trillion (or 700 billion) pounds is still in circulation because copper's recycling rate is higher than that of any other engineering metal.
