Factors affecting the price of beryllium copper
International economic situation. The correlation between the commodity market and the economic situation is obvious, especially as the world economy is becoming increasingly globalized, and the commodity market and the economy are more related.

Generally speaking, the economic situation is good, the demand for beryllium copper increases, and the price rises, and vice versa decline.
The production status of the producing country. Chile is rich in beryllium copper resources and the world’s beryllium copper exporter. Zambia and Zaire in central Africa are also important beryllium copper producing countries. Almost all of the beryllium copper produced by them is used for export. Their production status is important to the international beryllium copper market. great influence. The governance situation in these three countries has always been unstable, and labor disputes have often occurred, which also has a direct impact on the price of beryllium copper.

The price of the substitute. In the telecommunications industry, beryllium copper has always been an important raw material. However, due to the promotion and application of optical fiber technology, the position of beryllium copper has been challenged. At the same time, aluminum and other metal materials have the same properties as beryllium copper and are also used in most areas of use. Instead of beryllium copper.
The impact of inventory. Inventory is one of the important factors affecting the price of beryllium copper. Under different market conditions, companies will take different measures to increase or decrease inventory. In order to ensure the production of raw materials or speed up the flow of funds, throughput reserves will also be used at different periods to stabilize the beryllium copper market.
