The India structured cabling market size was $430.4 million in 2019, and it is projected to advance at a CAGR of 7.4% during the forecast period (2020–2030). The growing demand for higher bandwidth and transmission rates in India is expected to drive the demand for structured cabling. Additionally, government initiatives to construct 100 smart cities and offer free Wi-Fi services in trains and the increasing demand for intelligent buildings are further augmenting the market growth in the country.
The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the India structured cabling industry negatively. Key industries, including IT & telecommunication, construction, automotive, and manufacturing, are severely impacted due to the lockdown implemented by the central and state governments, thereby lowering the demand for structured cabling in the country.
In the India structured cabling market, on the basis of product, the copper cable category generated the highest revenue in 2019. This is attributed to the availability of copper cables at a comparatively lower price and the additional costs incurred in setting up the infrastructure with fiber cables. Further, the demand for copper cables, for data transmission applications, is projected to surge in the eastern region in the coming years.
In the India structured cabling market, within the wire category segment, category 7 (Cat7) wires are expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period. The demand for Cat7 cables is surging in India due to the best price/feature characteristics, as this cable is cost-effective and provides double the bandwidth of Cat6 cables.
In the India structured cabling market outlook, the data center category, under the application segment, is growing significantly, as effective cabling management is data centers is essential. This is attributed to the increasing usage of cloud computing, which is driving the demand for effective data storage solutions. This demand is being fulfilled by the rising number of data centers in the country. Tier I cities, predominantly, Mumbai, New Delhi, Chennai, Bengaluru, and Pune, are expected to be the main data center hubs in the nation.
The telecommunication category, under the end use segment of the India structured cabling market, generated the highest revenue in 2019. This is attributed to government initiatives, which include the National Telecom Policy 2018, which are predicted to attract investments worth $100 billion by 2023. Another driving factor for the market growth in the telecommunication category is the rising smartphone user base. The monthly data usage per person in India is expected to increase from around 7.69 GB in 2018 to 18 GB by 2023.
The eastern region of India is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period in the India structured cabling market, owing to the rising number of IT hubs, as well as government initiatives to increase the network connectivity in the Northeastern states. Further, cities such as Bhubaneswar and Agartala, are expected to be the major IT hubs in East India in the coming years. Additionally, with the rising number of smart city projects in Patna, Muzaffarpur, Guwahati, Imphal, Agartala, Kohima, Aizawl, Pasighat, Itanagar, Gangtok, and Namchi, the structured cabling market is projected to advance in the eastern states of India.
The country is witnessing a shift from the old generation of cables to Cat6 cables. There is an increasing demand for improved cable performance that could provide greater bandwidth and higher data transfer rates. Category 6 cabling meets these needs by providing a larger copper conductor to reduce the signal attenuation between the transmitter and receiver, as well as more pair twists and a pair divider, often referred to as a “spline”, to physically separate the individual pairs, to reduce crosstalk. Thus, the migration to category 6 cabling is a major trend being witnessed in the India structured cabling industry.
With digitization in India, the demand for data centers is expected to witness fast growth in the coming years. The growth of the data center market is expected to be driven by the decreasing cost of internet connections that support high bandwidth and domestic companies hosting mission-critical applications, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM), on third-party data centers. Hence, the growing data center market is augmenting the demand for structured cabling in the country.
