Wires and Cables Market Trends:

Urbanization and Industrialization

Rapid urbanization and industrialization in emerging economies are key drivers of the global wires and cables market. According to the GlobalData, India registered 1.34% urbanization rate in 2021, reflecting a 1.5% year-on-year increase. Moreover, increased migration of people to cities and towns and expansion of various industrial sectors increases the need for infrastructure development. This encompasses residential and commercial buildings, manufacturing plants and factories, and transportation. Wires and cables are crucial for electrical power distribution, communication systems, and data transmission channels. Cables are essential in the construction of new buildings and modification of existing structures. The development of new roads and railways require intensive cabling to supply power to lighting and heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems.

Expansion of Renewable Energy Projects

Globally, the demand for wires and cables is driven by the growth of renewable energy projects such as wind and solar farms. The US Department of Energy reported that renewable energy provided over 20% of all electricity generation in the country. Furthermore, the percentage continues to increase given the political and business efforts to lower carbon emissions and switch to green sources, creating new power transmission infrastructure. In separated systems, wires and cables link the renewable source directly to the substation and support power redistribution over long distances.

Adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs)

The increasing use of EVs is driving wires and cables market expansion to meet the growing need for charging infrastructure. Governments all over the world are implementing measures to reduce the economy’s reliance on fossil fuels, further reducing one of the most important sources of pollution. Moreover, the automotive industry is in the midst of transitioning to electric mobility, where wires and cables play a significant role in EV charging infrastructure, connecting charging slots to the power grid and allowing electricity to flow downward to electric vehicles. As even newer electronic vehicles become more widely used and more charging stations are constructed, the demand for quality cables that can handle high power and facilitate high amp charging technology has increased as well.
