Insulated Wire & Cable to 2017 - Industry Market Research, Market Share, Market Size, Sales, Demand Forecast, Market Leaders, Company Profiles, Industry Trends

US demand for insulated wire and cable is projected to increase 5.8 percent per year through 2017 to $29.2 billion. The recovering US construction industry will benefit building and power wire and cable. Fiber optic cable demand will remain strong, driven by “last mile” telecom upgrades from remaining copper coaxial cable infrastructure.

This study analyzes the $22 billion US insulated wire and cable industry. It presents historical demand data for 2002, 2007 and 2012, and forecasts for 2017 and 2022 by wire and cable material (e.g., metals, plastics, optical fibers), product type (e.g., building; power; electronic; fiber optic; apparatus; primary, ignition and battery; magnet), and market (e.g., telecommunications, electrical equipment, construction, motor vehicles, industrial machinery and equipment).

The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 30 industry players such as LS Corporation, General Cable, and Southwire.
