Over the past 3 years, India Copper Forum (ICF) has strived to bring together copper industry stalwarts to discuss various opportunities and challenges for growth of copper in India. The previous editions in 2015, 2016 and 2017 were held on respective themes ‘Copper Makes the World Work Better’, ‘Future with Copper’ and ‘One India One Vision’.
ICF is hosted by International Copper Association India (ICA India) in association with industry partners Hindalco Industries Ltd and Vedanta Ltd.
ICF has built strong repute across the industry and attracts active participation from the copper value chain including miners, fabricators, end-users, industry experts, government, policy makers and global thought leaders. Each year ICF carefully selects its theme to strengthen the copper community and bring together best thinkers, influencers and executors to drive copper growth.
This year’s ICF theme is ‘Copper in Technology, Innovation and Transformation’. Many sustainable development trends rely on copper for its characteristics and temperament. The criticality of copper positively impacts national and global transformation issues of air quality, electrical safety, energy efficiency, renewable energy, alternative vehicles, and climate change. The growing Indian economy with increasing disposable income, mass urbanization, formation of megacities, and infrastructural push led by the government through various plans and policies, would lead to rise in copper demand across businesses verticals. This increase in demand will push the industry to create solutions that will help improve technology and drive innovation that ultimately transforms the world around us.

- Global Asia and India overview on usage and supply of copper and emerging opportunities.
