Need for Easy IT Infrastructure Management Is Driving the Advanced Structured Cabling Market
  • IT sector grows, especially in developing countries, so will the requirement for advanced structured cabling, P&S Intelligence is a provider of market research and consulting services.

  • Around the world, Asia-Pacific (APAC) has been the largest structured cabling market, owing to its rapidly growing IT industry.

  • The rise in the adoption of intelligent technologies to implement scalable and modular IT infrastructure in several business operations is driving the market.


The entire structured cabling system can be made of copper wires or fiber wires and associated components. In the past, copper wires made up much of the structured cabling, as they are cost-effective. However, these cables are unable to support higher bandwidths, the demand for which is rising with people's requirement shifting to high-volume data transfer at higher speeds. This is why, in years to come, the demand for fiber cables would increase rapidly. Around the world, the usage of internet gaming, video conferencing and chatting, online video watching, and file sharing is rising, which requires high data speed to work without packet loss or buffering.


Further, the wires are themselves categorized as category 6, category 5e, category 6A, and category 7, based on the applications they support and data speeds they can handle. Up till 2017, category 6 wires were most widely installed, since they support the older computer systems. Additionally, they are used heavily in conjunction with category 5 wires (in systems that still use the latter category wires) to increase the connection speed. In present times, the demand for high-speed internet is rising, which would push the integration of category 6A structured cables. Around the world, Asia-Pacific (APAC) has been the largest structured cabling market, owing to its rapidly growing IT industry, as a result of heavy public and private investments.

“With the access of such detailed routing information of the building cabling infrastructure, it becomes very flexible for IT operators to install, modify, and change the connections & the wiring system in the business premises.”

~ IT industry


Further, with an increasing number of internet subscribers here, a huge volume of data is being created. As per a report by Economic Times in 2019, 451 million people in India were using the internet regularly in 2019, which is second only to China. Data centers are being constructed here to manage the huge data volume, and these places cannot function without structured cabling. Hence, as the IT sector grows, especially in developing countries, so will the requirement for advanced structured cabling. P&S Intelligence is a provider of market research and consulting services catering to the market information needs of burgeoning industries across the world.

“The major advantage of the installation of these cables is the large amounts of information that can be transmitted per unit of time, driving the structured cabling market demand."


Providing the plinth of market intelligence, P&S as an enterprising research and consulting company, believes in providing thorough landscape analyses on the ever-changing market scenario, to empower companies to make informed decisions and base their business strategies with astuteness. Several legacy facilities are facing the challenge of managing the order and ease of accessing the cabling infrastructure. The widely used cable management products and solutions can be installed easily and offer simple and modular designs. The manufacturers in the structured cabling market are catering to such demands of the customers by offering advanced cable management solutions. The growing adoption of digital services and increasing number of internet users will augment the data center demand, thereby driving the structured cabling market growth.


The cabling systems offer faster data transfer speeds and effective connectivity of IT devices, reducing the chances of system downtime and failure. It improves the effectiveness in the decision-making process, maximizing the business profits. Moreover, the growing demand for high-speed connectivity of the devices and data center convergence are the major factors driving the market. The adoption of fiber optic and coaxial cables for high-speed internet connectivity is gaining momentum in the industry. These cables have a much greater bandwidth compared to the metal cables. The major advantage of the installation of these cables is the large amounts of information that can be transmitted per unit of time, driving the structured cabling market demand.
