Structured cabling can be defined as the building or campus telecommunications cabling infrastructure that consists of a number of small standardized subsystems. The infrastructure offers telephone service and transmits the audio, signals, video, and, data through a computer network. The cabling installation & design is governed by various standards that specify the wiring of apartment buildings, data centers, and offices for voice communications. The widely used cables include category 5e, category 6, and fiber optic cabling.

Growing acceptance of 5G technology and improving broadband infrastructure globally are accelerating the market expansion. According to Global Mobile Suppliers Association (GMSA), 61 countries globally have commercially launched 144 5G networks as of January 2021. To enable high-speed and effective 5G connectivity, telecom operators are replacing copper cables with optical fiber cables. The structured cables offer several benefits including faster speed, greater bandwidth, longer distance, better reliability, and lower total cost of ownership in telecommunication infrastructures.

The rising smartphone penetration and adoption of IoT technology are driving the need for real-time data storage and processing. With the expansion & establishment of data center facilities, several companies are investing in well planned structured cabling infrastructure for improving their competitiveness within markets. Higher transmission rates and requirements for greater bandwidth have led data center operators to improve the cable design to accommodate end-user needs. Also, the growth of Power over Ethernet (PoE) has led to enhancement in cabling design with respect to their screening, conductor size, pair geometry, and material selection.

The ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic negatively impacted the structured cabling market in FY2020. The temporary closure of manufacturing plants resulted in a delay in new product launches and a decline in the financial performance of market players. For instance, in February 2021, Schneider Electric SE reported a revenue of USD 30 billion in 2020, representing a 7% decline compared to the previous year. However, with the resumption of manufacturing activities and lifting of lockdown, the market gained traction in the first quarter of 2021.

Rising development of the broadband infrastructure will propel the demand for structured cabling solutions

China hardware-based segment will expand at a 17% growth rate through 2027 led by the growing broadband penetrations and the need for fixed-line communications in the country. According to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), China holds high number of broadband subscribers globally with around 80% of total fixed-broadband subscriptions, at speeds over 10 Mbps. The country is also witnessing growing usage of fiber connections with almost 400 million Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) subscribers, accounting for 92% of Internet users in 2019. This has driven the demand for efficient cabling solutions for connecting electronic devices and maintaining continuity. Data transfer and connectivity have become highly essential for commercial activities in industries.

Increasing construction of public facilities will foster the market value
