Need for Easy IT Infrastructure Management Is Driving the Advanced Structured Cabling Market

Microsoft | May 28, 2020

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.
