The Indian market for structured cabling was valued at $508.0 million in 2020, and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 11.5% during 2020–2030. The market growth is mainly driven by the increasing demand for copper structured cabling due to the rising need for higher bandwidth and higher transmission rate. Additionally, the government initiatives for 100 smart cities and free Wi-Fi services at railway stations and increasing demand for intelligent buildings are augmenting the market growth.
The COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected the Indian market for structured cabling. Key industries, including IT & telecommunications, construction, automotive, and manufacturing, were severely impacted due to the lockdowns implemented by the central and state governments. The construction industry is facing challenges such as a decrease in the funding for public projects, closed construction sites, and postponement of ongoing construction projects owing to the disruption in the supply chain and economic uncertainty. Due to this, the demand for structured cabling solutions from new construction projects is expected to decrease in India.
The largest share in India structured cabling market was held by the copper cable category in 2020, based on product type. This is buoyed by the increasing replacement of the older cabling infrastructure with structured cabling for better efficiency and reduced bottlenecks in the system.
Category-6 wires dominated India structured cabling market in 2020, based on wire category. This was because Cat6 cables are backward-compatible with Cat3, Cat5, and Cat5e cabling systems. They also have a wider frequency range, of at least 150 Megahertz (MHz), than older types of cables, therefore are a more-cost-effective solution for enterprises that require faster speeds.
During the forecast period, the data center category is predicted to grow at a high rate in India structured cabling market, under the application segment. Some of the primary factors driving the demand for data centers in the country are the increasing internet penetration, government rules for the safety of the data generated in the country, and increased investment by foreign firms. All these factors lead to a high demand for structured cabling as such infrastructure is vital for data centers.
In India, structured cabling witnessed the highest demand in the telecommunication industry in 2020, on the basis of end user. This is attributed to government initiatives such as the National Telecom Policy 2018, which is likely to attract investments worth $100 billion by 2023. Additionally, the initiative focuses on digitally connecting the rural and remote regions of the country. Such initiatives will propel India structured cabling market growth by driving the laying of structured cables.
Regionally, the southern region accounted for the largest share in the structured cabling market for India in 2020 owing to the presence of IT hubs in Bengaluru, Chennai, and Hyderabad.
The structured cabling market in the eastern region of India is expected to grow at the highest rate during forecast period. This can be attributed to the development of IT hubs in Bhubaneswar and Tripura and government initiatives to increase connectivity in the eastern states.
India is presently undergoing a digital revolution driven by the changing business needs and increasing usage of data for decision making. The Indian government is developing 100 smart cities, where the internet of things (IoT) will play a vital role. At the same time, the need for intelligent buildings is increasing in India, as more companies are working to make their campuses and facilities world class, while saving costs and responding to the government’s smart building initiative. Due to the growing need for data transmission systems, particularly in metropolitan areas, the number of telecommunication companies has exploded in recent years. Structured cabling offers the critical support for high-performance and unified communication systems; hence, the rapid digitization has become a key trend in the structured cabling market for India.
In India, the demand for high bandwidth has risen as internet penetration has increased. Structured cabling enables the high bandwidth that is necessary for commercial operations to run smoothly. The high-bandwidth environment has evolved at an exponential rate due to its increased data transfer capability, low cost, and flexibility. Structured cabling, being the foundation of efficient IT infrastructure, is receiving attention from the telecommunications, government, industrial, commercial, and other sectors. Hence, the increasing demand for higher bandwidths is fueling the demand for structured cabling in the country.
The number of structured cabling users, including government agencies, educational bodies, telecommunications companies, financial institutions, retailers and social networking services, are growing in tandem with the rising urbanization rate, thus putting additional strain on the current communication infrastructure. With digitization in India, the demand for green data centers and building automation is expected to witness rapid growth in the coming years. The growth of the data center market is expected to be driven by the increasing supply and decreasing cost of high-bandwidth internet and introduction of the mission-critical applications of corporate houses, such as enterprise resource planning (ERP) and customer relationship management (CRM), on third-party data centers. With the increasing demand for data centers, the need for world-class infrastructure solutions, such as structured cabling, is rising in the country. This acts as one of the key drivers in the Indian structured cabling market.
