Insulated Wire & Cable

An expected strong recovery in construction expenditures will fuel growth in US demand for several types of wire, including building, power, and magnet.

US demand to rise 6% annually through 2019

Insulated wire and cable demand in the US is projected to increase 6.0 percent annually to $27.2 billion in 2019, as the market continues to recover from its depressed 2009 level. A strong expected recovery in construction expenditures will fuel growth in demand for several types of wire, including building, power, and magnet wire and cable.

Building wire & cable to offer best opportunities

Among the different product types, building wire and cable held the largest share of demand in 2014 and will see the most rapid advances through 2019, reaching $8.3 billion. An acceleration in growth of building construction expenditures, after a period of tepid improvement between 2009 and 2014, will drive advances. Among other types, power, magnet, and fiber optic wire and cable will also see strong advances. On the other hand, due to slow growth in US motor vehicle production through 2019, primary, ignition, and battery wire and cable demand will see a pronounced deceleration from the previous five-year period, when demand was driven by robust increases in vehicle output.

Construction to be fastest growing market

Among the major markets for insulated wire and cable, construction is forecast to see the fastest growth. In addition to building wire, rising construction expenditures will also benefit demand for other types of wire used in building construction, such as coaxial cable.

Electrical equipment was the largest market for insulated wire and cable in 2014 at $5.8 billion. Demand in this market is projected to increase 3.9 percent per annum through 2019. Increasing electricity production -- as well as use of new sources of power generation, such as solar and wind farms -- will increase demand for power transmission and distribution wire. However, decelerating growth in the production of appliances and other electrical equipment will restrain increases in demand for other types of wire and cable used in the electrical equipment market, such as appliance wire and hook-up wire. Slower price growth than between 2004 and 2014 will also limit advances in spending on wire for electrical equipment.

The telecommunications market also uses a vast array of wire and cable products with demand in this market projected to reach $5.4 billion in 2019. The continued use of electronic devices that rely on wireless technology will reduce demand for the wire and cable historically used to connect such devices. However, the growing use of electronic devices will also require continued improvements to the existing telecommunications infrastructure, especially in last-mile upgrades.

Study coverage

This Freedonia industry study, Insulated Wire & Cable, analyzes the $20.3 billion US insulated wire and cable industry. It presents historical demand data (2004, 2009 and 2014) and forecasts (2019 and 2024) by material (e.g., metals, plastics, optical fibers), product type (e.g., building; power; electronic; apparatus; primary, ignition and battery; fiber optic; magnet), and market (e.g., electrical equipment, construction, telecommunications, motor vehicles, industrial machinery). The study also considers market environment factors, details industry structure, evaluates company market share, and profiles 29 industry players, including Southwire, General Cable, and LS Corporation.
