Insulated Wire and Cable: A Global Strategic Business Report

Demand for insulated wires and cables is strongly influenced by economic growth. GDP growth, and health of major end-use industries such as, construction, automotive, electronics, energy generation, and telecom, therefore play key roles in influencing market prospects. Resurgence of the construction industry from the recessionary slump is benefitting demand for insulated wires and cables. Major factors driving growth in developed economies include residential repair, remodelling and repair activity, introduction of stricter building codes, and increasing need for improved energy efficiency, while in developing countries, increased investments in infrastructure in China, India, Brazil, and Russia is spearheading market growth. Stringent government regulation calling for mandatory renovations of ageing buildings and electrical works, both residential and commercial, represents another major factor driving demand. Positive outlook for the automotive industry also bodes well for automotive wires and cables.

As stated by the new market research report on Insulated Wire and Cable, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market with a CAGR of 7.9% over the analysis period. Growth in the region is led by robust construction activity, significant infrastructure improvement in power and telecom industries, and strong automobile production. Telecommunication data wire & cable represents the largest and the fastest growing market worldwide. Insulated cable deployment in the telecom sector is gaining strength with telecom operators making active efforts to expand capacity in line with escalating demand for Internet video and data traffic amidst increasing use of mobile devices, such as smartphones and tablets.

The shift towards broadband networks and the on-going transition to 4G networks is having a significant impact on demand for fiber optic cables. Fiber optic networks are also being deployed at newer and remote locations, and for addressing newer applications, such as those required for high-frequency trading. Growing demand for energy, especially in emerging countries such as India and China, is compelling governments to step up production levels. Most nations are looking beyond traditional power sources, and are focusing on alternative energy. Investments in power infrastructure development is therefore expected to create enormous opportunity for growth of insulated wires and cables, as all the integrated components in power grids require insulation for eliminating transmission losses, short circuits, and other electrical related ambiguities.

Global commitment to effect a reduction in greenhouse gas emission and focus on conformance to Kyoto protocol agreement is also expected to force countries to legislate norms to ensure effective building insulation, since insulation is considered as the most viable as well as the cost-effective way to reduce energy consumption and fight climate change. Proper insulation can bring down heat flow, reducing cooling needs by more than 70%.
