Patch panels enable flexible connection between outgoing lines with the incoming line of communication. The high adoption of LAN would drive the demand for patch panels across the globe.

Restraint -

High Integration and Installation Cost

The cost of patch panels is generally high which can demotivate medium size enterprises from integrating and installing the same within the premises. The number of medium size enterprises across the globe is much more in number than large enterprises, and manufacturers need to reduce the cost of patch panels to cater to medium size enterprises. High cost related to patch panels such as product price, integration cost, installation cost, and down time cost can challenge the patch panels market to expand at a healthy rate.
