Spools Market: Introduction

Wire & cables industry plays a vital role in shaping the world infrastructure. The global wire & cable industry is rapidly growing due to the emerging markets ramping up their digital infrastructure developments and developed world is renovating its age old infrastructure for power transmission & distribution and telecommunication. Wire & cable packaging industry witnessed changing trends during last few years. Safety issues such as fire hazards, damage of fibre optic cables etc. are demanding high-end sophisticated packaging for wire & cables. Spools or reels are the packaging products used to pack or bundle the cables or wires. Spools are a cylindrical round drum-shaped object to carry wires & cables. These are usually made of wood, metal, plastic and cardboard. The selection of the spool or reel depends on the diameter and load of the wire or cable intended to transport. Emerging markets like India, China, Russia, Mexico, Argentina, South Africa and Brazil are the target markets which spool manufacturers should focus on. TMR analysis shows that the market is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR with higher growth in emerging markets.

Spools: Market Dynamics

Growing trends of transforming traditional age old infrastructure to digital is driving the global wire & cables industry, which in turn drives the global spools market. Governments’ emphasis on digital infrastructure developments also influences the above mentioned factor. Growing safety concerns on fire hazards and breaking up of cables during transportation demands high durability and efficient spools. Shipping space optimization is the major concern of wire and cable industries face today. Spools with modern technology touch are addressing this aforementioned issue.

Growing demand for renewable energy sources such as solar and wind energy, where challenge is to efficiently store and transfer the power demands reliable, durable and efficient spools, which is driving the global spools market. Load weight optimization, where lightweight wooden, plastic or rigid cardboard spools are used to bundle the wire and cables. Materials used by many spool manufacturers are 100% recyclable, which reduces carbon footprint considerably, which is driving the growth of spools market. To reduce the packaging costs wire & cable industry manufacturers are started to use returnable spools, which is another driving force of the spools market. Unorganized spools market has a considerable market share in global spools market. Unorganized spools manufacturers lack skilled labours, infrastructure and technology, which is restraining the overall growth of the global spools market. Indian spools market is the hotspot among the emerging markets according to TMR analysis.

India spools market has a strong growth potential due to its rapidly growing infrastructure developments such as Make in India, Smart City and Sagarmala Projects. China is the second pick among emerging markets where it is investing heavily in China Pakistan Economic Corridor (CPEC) which is estimated to be more than US$ 50 billion project and One Belt One Road (OBOR). Adding to these developments, there are many other infrastructure developments going alongside in aerospace, electronics and semiconductor and automotive industries.
