Global Wire & Cable Report Edition 5 2021-2026

·4-min read

Dublin, Jan. 18, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "The Global Market for Energy and Telecoms Wire and Cable Report Ed 5 2021" report has been added to's offering.

Wires and cables perform two basic functions (i) they conduct electricity or communications, for which they need high conductivity, or (ii) they carry loads, for which they need high tensile strength. Sometimes they combine both requirements. This report surveys the marker for the first group, electricity and communications conductors, and contains a brief review of the second group, mechanical wire rope.

Production and sales are sized for energy and telecoms wire and cable for 2019 and forecast to 2026, globally, for the regions and for major countries. The forecast charts a drop in 2020 due to COVID-19 and recovery in 2021.

Production tonnage of cable and $ sales revenue are plotted from 2001 to 2020, against the copper price in $/tonne. The correlations show past consistency and enable reliable prediction of the value of future sales of wire and cable.

This Report Includes:

  • Product groups - Insulated Copper Power Cable, Insulated Aluminium Power Cable, Low Voltage Cable, Uninsulated Conductors, Metallic Telecoms Cable, Fibre Optic Cable, Winding Wire - Charted by country and region, from 2019 to 2026.

  • Factors driving prices of cable analysed in detail - Commodity Prices, Production Capacity, Demand, Learning Rate.

  • End-user segments with shares - Networks (utilities and industry), OGP, Railways, Transport, OEM, Automotive, Buildings, Metallic Communications, Fibre Optic.

  • The most profitable product groups are identified with long-term growth prospects.

  • Extensive analysis of the manufacturing sector, with overall vendor shares for Top.

  • Market drivers in the utility sector, industrial and building network systems, the process and the OEM industry.

  • The price difference between copper and aluminium became significant in the early 2000s: rising from 1.2 in 2000 peaking at 4.0 by end of 2013 and 3.5 in 2021. The report discusses cost, weight, conductivity, capacity, tensile strength and the flex ratio, the difference between the core price and the hollow price, leading to aluminium substitution for copper.

  • Technologies of OHL bare conductors, underground and industrial insulated cable, subsea cable, fibre optic.

  • The report identifies several hundred cable manufacturers, with market shares within product segments.

  • Profiles of 34 global leaders

  • Insulated land cables and bare conductors are not the most profitable category of cable but they are stable long-term earners. The incidence of underground cabling is charted by country.

  • A brief section deals with mechanical wire rope with market size and shares.

  • The progress of superconductors is outlined; potentially one of the most important developments for the electrical sector in the future, with a review of the major companies and developers and research & industry bodies.
