AC, TV, Freeze, Cooler will now be more expensive
The cost of electronic items used in the house is also going to increase. Many factories were closed in the country due to the lockdown. Due to this many things were not being produced. There is also copper in this. The production of copper was also stopped in the lockdown. With the rise in demand, the price of copper has already increased. This is the reason why the price of things like TV, Freeze, Cooler, AC is bound to increase. All these things have coils in which copper is used.
Experts believe that after the lockdown is lifted, the use of copper on a large scale will increase in many things. Due to this, its demand will increase continuously but the production of copper will be limited. When production is less and demand increases, then its direct effect will be on the price.
