Industry overview

Cable and wire industry has established itself as one of the backbones of modern information age. The increasing importance for power, light and communication has kept demand high for wire and cable. This trend will continue as demand for reliable, efficient energy and data communications will strengthen the wire and cable industry. The industry is a volume-driven product and has evolved from the unorganised to the organised sector. However, about 35 per cent of this industry is still in the unorganised.

About 40 per cent of the entire electrical industry is composed by wire and cable industry, and it is expected to be double in the next 5 years. The global wire and cable market is valued at $127 billion in 2010. This market is expected to increase at a 9. 4 per cent CAGR to reach nearly $200 billion in 2015. Due to the good response from the power and infrastructure segments, the wire and cable industry is growing at a CAGR of 15 per cent. As the new government is focusing on „Make In India,” the industry can grow at similar rate for the next 5 years.

Investment made by various private companies in power sector has opened up the wire and cable industry. Even the growth potential in the telecom sector as well as the various policy pronouncements by the government towards bringing about improved digital connectivity has added advantage to the industry. The rollout of 4G and broadband on a pan-India basis is an important growth driver because this will boost the market. Government impetus in refineries, power, and fertilizers will offer a boost to the cable industry as almost all manufacturing companies need cables. The auto sector and railways are also important sectors consuming wires and cables on a large scale. The power sector is the biggest driver in the mainstay of cable demand, accounting for more than three-quarters of the market. Telecom cables are confined to the relatively narrower domain of the health of the global information, communications, and technology (ICT) domains. For the industry, the current focus is to supply cables for specific applications, pertaining to the industry needs. Sectors like oil and gas, metro, cement industry, and steel industry have a lot of growth potential. The wire and cable industry is also focusing on specialized cables like extra-high-voltage cables and elastomer cables, which are now used for special applications in the industries like oil and gas, shipbuilding, construction equipment, elevator, renewable power, windmill solutions, security systems, and so forth.

The biggest challenge for the industry is operation and service, including the reduced lifetime of cables due to mishandling and deployment times. Increasing price and competition from Chinese imports is also one of the biggest challenges for the industry. The rising price of copper has also become a major issue as it has squeezed the profit margins, and copper has become uncompetitive in the international market.
