The Global Market for Wire and Cable 2012 - 2050

Abstract

image1

Our August 2012 publication, "The Global Market for Wire and Cable 2012 - 2050 looks at the current and immediate future market in the two principal segments, energy and telecoms, and examines in less detail automotive, construction, railway and other segments.

StatPlan Energy has built a series of databases that are the basis of our reports and forecasts and these allow us to produce more sensitive and accurate predictions for the short, medium and long term futures. We believe we have the only published forecast tool that recognises how future opportunities will divide between New Build and Asset Based Renewal. These are very different markets and only the New Build represents an increase in infrastructure assets.

We present 91 charts and tables with supporting commentary and conclusions, providing data by value and cable length as appropriate. We explore particular growth sectors, such as railway electrification, underground cabling and submarine cabling. We believe this to be the most comprehensive report available for this sector.

Highlights in this year's report:

  • Wire and cable markets globally, regionally and by major country market
  • Detailed forecasts to 2017
  • Overview forecasts to 2050
  • End user sectors
  • Major manufacturers
  • Market drivers by segment
  • Underground cables, market penetration
  • Offshore and submarine cables
  • Industrial users
  • The electrification of railways, the role of high speed rail
  • Development of superconductors
  • Metal theft
