Co-Tech Copper Foil has expressed optimism about its performance during 2017 citing robust copper foil demand, according to Digitimes. The company generated revenues of about NT$5.4 billion ($178.5 million) in 2016, up by 26.5% on year, while gross margin surged to 18.57% from 3.65% in 2015.
Co-Tech credited its positive performance to a significant increase in car-use copper foil demand particularly that from China, as well as rising prices of copper materials. The company returned to profitability in 2016 following five years of losses.
Co-Tech's headquarters are in Taipei, Taiwan. The Copper foil and CuO plant are located in Yulin, Taiwan.

IPC Director of Market Research Sharon Starr found time to discuss the recently conducted and published surveys and research reports and a few others still in the works. These reports are free to survey participants, which is certainly a great incentive for taking the time to complete them. (Hint: That’s a call to action for those of you sitting on the sidelines.)
