Steel is definitely a popular choice for large structures, but not the only one used overall. Aluminum and tin find extensive use because of their relatively low cost, but aren’t nearly as sturdy. Titanium is used in some limited applications, but is conversely far more costly.
Many other metals, such as gold, silver, and chrome, are used for decorative purposes. Other alloys, such as bronze, can also be used for both structure and decorating.
The primary use (half the total consumption in the US) of copper is in building construction. Plumbing and wiring are the obvious uses. The price of copper is driven by building construction in the world’s largest copper consumer, China.
