Brass is widely used for its malleability, durability, excellent thermal & electrical conductivity, strength and strong resistance to corrosion which makes it an ideal metallic alloy for various applications across a wide range of end-use industries. Brass is popularly used as a foil due to its characteristics mentioned above and their superiority over other malleable metals such as copper, nickel, and aluminum. Primarily used in electronics, automotive and construction industries, brass foils also find applications in defense, sports, and industrial machinery industries. Market Research Future has recently published a detailed report which offers unique insights on the brass foils market. The report has predicted a steady CAGR over the forecast period of 2017 to 2023. The rapid ongoing growth of the electrical and electronics market has been identified as a key factor promoting the considerable growth of the brass foils market.
