In the present work we cultivate various scope and opportunities of Copper (Cu) based semiconducting materials by analysis of 84 different research papers. The objectives of the present work are: Introduce of different Copper (Cu) based semiconducting materials and their merits & de-merits, Different fabrication method regarding different materials according to different authors, Applications and future work based on different materials. From this review paper, beginners who are working on copper (Cu) based materials will gain a lots. Researchers will acknowledge various types of Cu based materials & their different fabrication processes. Apart from this they will also be aware of advantages and disadvantages of various materials & the possible defined problems which will carry out in future work. So beginners who are working on this, will find a convenient path to find a problem regarding future research work on Copper (Cu) based semiconducting material.
