China is pouring money into its railways, smart grids and intelligent buildings, and these investments are creating an upward trend in domestic wire and cable market growth. The demand for wires and cables, especially high-end cables, is expected to remain strong for the next five years and the country’s wire and cable production output is projected to exceed USD 257 billion by 2020.
On a global scale, the market size for power cables has grown in both value and volume. The incessant demand for power cables shows no signs of slowing down given the need for the integration of solar and wind energy into grid systems, particularly in European and Asian economies. According to statistics published by BCC Research LLC, the global wire and cable market is anticipated to surge to USD 297.4 billion by 2019, with a five-year compound annual growth rate of 7.7%.
