Wire & Cable Manufacturing in the US

Cables and wires are the backbone of the modern information age, providing individuals with power, light and communication. Demand for the Wire and Cable Manufacturing industry has grown over the past five years, as the need for faster interconnectivity has intensified. Over the coming years, demand for reliable and efficient power and data communication will promote demand for cable and wire. Additionally, expected upgrades to infrastructure and increased capacity for transmission grids are anticipated to stimulate further demand for power and communications cable. However, import penetration remains a threat to industry demand and revenue.

This industry manufactures insulated nonferrous wire and cable and fiber optic cable used for power transmission and communication. This industry does not manufacture nonferrous wire or unsheathed fiber-optic materials, and instead uses wire and optical fiber manufactured by companies outside the industry.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
