The structured cabling market is primarily driven by increasing demand for structured cabling components across different datacenter network globally. The rapid growth of the internet and cloud computing applications has resulted in datacenter network bandwidth requirements. The operators of datacenters are continually facing the challenge of meeting the increasing demands for network bandwidth without exorbitantly increasing infrastructure power and cost. This triggers the need of structured cabling globally which is cost effective, has long transmission distancecapability andresults in consumption of less power.In addition, different initiatives such development of green datacenters,has been taken by the government in different parts of the world such as the U.S., Canada, U.K., Australia, China and Japan to reduce the power consumption and heat generation in datacenters. This in turn is expected to increases the deployment and usage of structured cabling components. Moreover, the ongoing practice to upgrade the prevalent cabling system along with new installation adopted by different application segments across the globe in order to get fast and reliable network connection is also predicted to drive the market of structured cabling globally.
However,lack of awareness about the benefits associated with structured cabling infrastructure, deters the growth of structured cabling market and limit users to switch to structured cabling system from traditional coaxial cabling system. In addition, high installation and maintenance cost associated with structured cabling is another important factor restraining the growth of structured cabling market. Moreover, low electromagnetic compatibility of structured cabling which can hamper costly electronic devices also restricts the growth of structured cabling market globally.In spite of these restraining factors, the structured cabling market is expected to experience robust growth during the forecast period of 2015 to 2021.
