Insulated Wire and Cable: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Information processing and communications, two of the largest markets, are expected to prop up large-scale growth in the global insulated wire and cable market. In wireless communications, applications such as base station transmission units and antenna towers are expected to drive demand for wire and cable. Telecom industry is expected to be the major driver of the wire and cable industry in future, owing to continuous upgrades in the telecom industry. Apart from growth in developing markets, an increasing number of countries in under developed countries in Africa are also beginning to realize the benefits of telecommunications in economic development. Featuring countries with some of the lowest teledensities in the world, African nations are witnessing flourishing activity in the telecom industry.

Growth of electric wires is being driven by continued growth in building construction and infrastructure in emerging markets. Even in the present state of economic uncertainty induced by the debt crisis in the Eurozone, construction activity continues to witness healthy growth in emerging markets such as China, and India. Various housing schemes being promoted in these countries as well as high priority for infrastructure development are driving growth of the construction industry, and subsequently driving growth of electric wires.

Developing countries are in general affected by shortage of power infrastructure. In China, which represent the gold standard for infrastructure development among developing regions, many areas in the north and northwest lack proper power infrastructure. On the other hand, power infrastructure in developed markets is aging, and needs to be replaced. In addition, developed markets are moving towards smart grids, which require significant investment in existing grids. Moreover, alternative energy sources such as wind and solar energy are being actively tapped across the world. These new power generation sources need to be connected to consumption centers, which require substantial investments in power infrastructure. Subsequently Governments around the world are prioritizing power infrastructure as one of the key areas for development. As such, the power infrastructure market is witnessing healthy growth across all regions.

As stated by the new market research report on Insulated Wire and Cable, Asia-Pacific represents the largest and the fastest growing market for Insulated Wire and Cable.
