The article focuses on the market outlook of several executives regarding the copper sector in the U.S. for the year 2007. According to Tom Baker of Olin Brass Co., demand for copper will be weak due to the well-publicized downturns in the housing and automotive sectors. David Martinelli of Scott Brass Inc. ascribed the situation to the volatile copper-pricing environment. Analyst Stephen Higgins cited the increase in purchases of scrap by mills in China as a factor affecting demand.
