Some of the players holding prominent position in the market are Belden Inc., Corning Inc., Schneider Electric SE, CommScope Holding Company, Inc., and Legrand.

The various applications of structured cabling comprise commercial, residential, government, industrial, and transportation. Of these, the commercial segment leads the pack contributing the dominating share in 2014 and is projected to rise at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period of 2015–2021. The substantially rising need for higher bandwidth in commercial sector for data transmission is bolstering the uptake.

Regionally, North America accounted for the leading share of the global market in 2014.
