Structured Cabling Market to Exceed $8 billion by 2015, Supporting Gigabit Ethernet and 10G Revenues in Fiber and Copper Products

FARMINGTON, Conn., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The global structured cabling market has been characterized by its stable growth over the past several years, with the market growing at a compound annual growth rate of 6.8% to reach $5.6 billion in 2011. Growth is expected to continue in the structured cabling market to exceed $8 billion by 2015. While the US still dominates this market, China and the Asia Pacific region show the most growth potential over the next five years.

The success of Gigabit Ethernet correlates to its strong presence with structured cabling. 1000BASE-T, 10G over twisted-pair copper (10GBASE-T) holds the promise of being less costly than its optical competitor, 10GBASE-SR. So it seems that high power consumption has been a market inhibitor. As power consumption efficiency is resolved through advances in transceiver-chip lithography, advances in driving down power consumption are breaking through. The ongoing battle between copper and fiber systems continues to persist and Global Information (GII) recommends a new report that covers the market perspectives.

In addition to the report recommendations, from our partnering conferences arm, GII brings executives the latest networking conferences and global events in the MPLS and Ethernet markets.

Structured Cabling Technology and Market Assessment

Fiber has taken a foothold in the network at 10G. Fiber-optic products are poised to steadily take market share from copper products in the structured cabling market over the next five years. While the copper structured cabling market is expected to shrink, there is still potential to recognize revenues, particularly in CAT6 UTP for Gigabit Ethernet and CAT7 for 10G. This report discusses the ongoing battle between copper and fiber systems.

Containing in-depth market analysis for structure cabling components and evaluations of what products may be introduced in the future, the report highlights technology drivers, utilization of copper versus fiber optic systems, and a global five-year forecast for connectors and cable assemblies by media type, product type and world region.

High-speed Fiber Optics Communications: Specifics, Technologies, Applications and Markets

Driven by a boom in broadband Internet users and the proliferation of bandwidth-hungry applications such as HD video, Internet bandwidth maintained by major Internet carriers has been expanding at 75% to 125% per year. In turn, public and private networks are experiencing unprecedented end-user demand for bandwidth resulting in a need to cost-effectively scale the capacity of communications networks.

The report provides up-to-date information on the status of Ethernet-based networks; it reflects intensive efforts of standard organizations (IEEE, ITU, OIF and other) in developing standards for these types of communications. Though the report concentrates on Ethernet-based networks, it shows that the whole telecommunications industry is also actively working to adopt higher speeds of transmission. 40 Gb/s networks already have a history of success and 100 Gb/s rates are being introduced by major service providers. New standards support these developments. Meanwhile, industry analysts already are talking about 400 Gb/s and even 1 Tb/s interfaces.
