Executive Summary

How has the growth of the structured cabling market been impacted by the adoption of data centers in I.T. infrastructure?

An electrical wiring architecture called structured cabling includes several smaller, standardized electrical components. Additionally, it offers predictable performance, the capacity to adapt to changes and additions, maximizes system availability and offers redundancy for the cabling system. The COVID-19 outbreak has significantly impacted traditional workplace practices. Many organizations have resorted to modern I.T. solutions to keep their operations running, personnel engaged, and budgets under control due to the uncertainties surrounding the future of the office culture. Both private and public cloud data centers have been growing quickly in quantity. A few factors propelling the growth of data centers globally include the desire for personal cloud storage and the sharp rise in internet users. According to the Cisco Global Cloud Index research, global cloud data center traffic will reach 19.5 zettabytes (Z.B.) per year by 2021, a 6 zettabyte per year growth from 2016. Cloud data center traffic accounts for 95% of total traffic in 2021, while cloud data centers process 94% of workloads and 94% of compute instances in the same year. The concept of data center convergence is gradually permeating the I.T. infrastructure sector, assisting in the consolidation of disparate servers, storage systems, and networking devices into a unified system. Several companies have begun to discard diverse architectural styles to reduce operational costs.

Which are the key investments by the players in the Structured Cabling Industry Market?

The trend of data center convergence is likely to be boosted by the high demand for high-speed connection equipment and systems. The market for structured cabling is anticipated to be boosted by high investments in communication infrastructure. The increase in funding and investments for the communication sector is driving market growth. For instance, in November 2022, at the cable plant in Dèn, Czech Republic, R&M sought to increase its production capabilities. By 2022, R&M will have invested several million Swiss francs in new production facilities for fiber optic cables.

Some of the major players in the structured cable market are CommScope Holding Company, Inc. (U.S.), Corning Incorporated (U.S.), Legrand (France), Nexans (France), Panduit Corp. (U.S.), Belden Inc. (U.S.), R&M (Switzerland), Furukawa Electric Co., Ltd. (Japan), Schneider Electric (France), The Siemon Company (U.S.).

What are the Major Driving Factors for the Structured Cabling Market?

The increasing adoption of 5G technology is the primary driver of market growth. However, certain important factors contribute to favorable growth in the global industry. For example, the rise of the I.T. and telecommunications industries, the increased usage of smart apps and gadgets, and the acceptance of cloud services. Furthermore, the growing internet dispersion contributes to the spike.
