According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Structured Cabling Market is accounted for $11.56 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $18.68 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. Structured Cabling is defined as building or campus telecommunications cabling infrastructure that consists of several standardized smaller elements (structured). A properly designed and installed structure cabling system provides a cabling infrastructure that delivers predictable performance as well as has the flexibility to accommodate moves, additions, and changes; maximizes system availability; provides redundancy, and future proofs the usability of the cabling system.

Market Dynamics:


Growing Demand from IT & Telecommunication

The rapidly expanding IT & telecom sector, along with increasing demand for high bandwidth, rise in demand for high-speed connectivity devices and systems, increasing investments in developing communication infrastructure are anticipated to propel the structured cabling market. Moreover, there is a surging demand for upgrading the infrastructure due to the growing number of subscribers in the telecom sector, who consistently need a high-speed Internet connection. This factor is responsible for the growth of the market. Emerging trends and technologies, such as 5G, artificial intelligence, cloud computing, and the Internet of Things are compelling data center operators to evolve consistently. A well-planned structured cabling system is capable of adhering to the changing needs of data centers, which these new trends are forcing.


High Cost

The high cost connected with the fiber optic cables is hindering the growth of the market. Furthermore, the variations in the cable’s raw material prices are restraining the structured cabling growth, globally. The prevalence of trendy virtualization is also playing a key role in diminishing the structured cabling revenue.


Rise in Implementation of Fiber to the home (FTTH)/ Fibre to the Premises (FTTP)

The growing use of its high-speed networks for various commercial, industrial, and residential applications is a major factor in market growth. The development of the residential and commercial areas in various emerging economies is also driving the demand for Fiber-to-the-home/Fiber-to-the-premises (FTTH/FTTP). Fiber optic cables are used for rapid and uninterrupted flow of data, as they are unaffected by electromagnetic interference (EMI) and also increases the speed of communication as compared to that of typical traditional cable modems. The increase in the need for high-speed data transmission and the use of broadband is expanding the fiber optic systems network and consequently, creating ample opportunity for market growth.


Change and Retrofitting Of Age Infrastructures

Organization cabling is moving toward the general approach and designers are in the process of creating unified cabling infrastructures to offer superior support to evolving technologies. The incorporation of various low-voltage cabling infrastructure products, software, and services provides the highest level of reliability for critical communication networks. The majority of old infrastructures need modification and retrofitting to match up with the current demand for high-speed, reliable, and uninterrupted data, voice, and video transmission. The retrofitting of infrastructures is a challenging job for its vendors as the time required for planning and executing the upgrade is more than executing the new infrastructural project.

Software segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

The software segment is projected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period owing to improvements in technologies, growing complexity of the network infrastructures. Thus, companies prefer software solutions to design a virtual network infrastructure and check for proper voice and data flow in that network connection.

The industrial segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The industrial segment is expected to grow significantly over the coming years, owing to the rising development and use of automation techniques across industries. The segment comprises small and large enterprises that use structured cabling systems for connecting machinery and other automation purposes. Additionally, the increasing need for high-speed machine-to-machine communication and reliability are some of the factors expected to drive the market.

Region with highest share:

The North America is projected to hold the highest market share, the growth is accredited to the growing acceptance of technology, modernization, and rising demand of high-speed Internet connectivity and digitalization are boosting the global market in North America. Factors responsible for major market share are growth & development in the construction industry and the increasing adoption of smart homes.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR, due to government initiatives to promote digitization, advanced infrastructure, growing population, rapid adoption of smart devices, and growing investments into the cloud and IoT technologies are expected to contribute to the growth of the Asia Pacific province. Internet adoption in countries such as China and Japan would lead to growth in the number of broadcast activities. This, in turn, is expected to drive the growth of the Asia Pacific market.

Key players in the market:

Some of the key players profiled in the Structured Cabling Market include ABB Ltd., Belden Inc., Cisco Systems, Inc., CommScope Holding Co., Corning Incorporated, Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd., Legrand SA, Nexans S.A., Schneider Electric, Siemens AG, Siemon, TE Connectivity.

Key developments:
