The Market Intelligence Data and Measurement (MIDM) function provides the Copper Alliance™ and its members with a portfolio of valuable market intelligence, select global data sets and program measurement.

Efforts related to copper material flows have been in development since 2010 and the information outlines critical copper recycling indicators at the global, regional and application level. Supported by the Fraunhofer Institute for Systems and Innovation Research, a more detailed view on material flows is emerging, further clarifying the global recycling challenge for copper.

Other activities include the development of strategic planning materials for The Alliance. Recent prominent achievements include mapping opportunities for copper in emerging markets, assessing commercial research and development in global automotive wire harness, and global power cable demand conditions.

MIDM collaborates with relevant organizations that operate in the global copper value chain, including the International Copper Study Group (ICSG), and the International Wrought Copper Council (IWCC) .
