The massive growth in smartphone users and the subsequent expansion of optic-fiber networks has resulted in the proliferation of the telecom sector in the region. For instance, estimations by the European Telecommunications Network Operators' Association suggest that between 2020 and 2021, 5G coverage in Europe almost increased two-fold, reaching 62% in 2021 compared to 30% the in 2020. The FTTH coverage in the country reached 51.6% of the overall NGA (next-generation access) connections.

The wire and cable market in Europe hugely relies on countries such as Russia, Columbia, Chile, etc., for raw material imports, increasing the dependency of regional manufacturers on suppliers across these economies. Thus, the high import dependency can impact the market dynamics through 2030. On the flip side, the rising influence of broadcasting media and the ongoing deregulation and privatization of telecom regulators will transform the industry dynamics.

These cables offer enhanced fiber densities of up to 10.5 fibers/mm2 and make installations faster, more sustainable, and cost-effective by limiting the impacts on carbon footprints.

Impact of COVID-19 on the Europe wire and cable market trends

During the first half of 2020, the wire & cable industry across Europe was majorly hit by the COVID-19 pandemic due to stringent lockdown restrictions and the unprecedented closure of key major end-use industries. Halted industrial and commercial operations, reduced power consumption, and the significant decline in static expenditure further hampered the industry revenue. However, the gradually resuming operations across the industrial and commercial sectors, resulting in increased power demand and surging infrastructural investments, will help the industry gain significant impetus over the coming years.
