Analysts’ Viewpoint

The ongoing COVID-19 crisis has led to a sharp contraction in the global wire and cable demand, owing to reduced industrial activity, fixed investment, and private consumption. Hence, manufacturers should diversify their supply chains in electronics and medical equipment applications to shift focus from declining automotive sales. However, issues with wire harnesses such as poor wire harness layout and shoddy labeling are emerging as a challenge for manufacturers. In order to overcome these issues, manufacturers should increase the availability of custom wiring solutions to meet demanding applications of end users. Companies in the wire harness market should adhere to long time industry norms and staples in order to boost their credibility credentials.

Wire Harness Market: Overview

  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the global wire harness market for the historical period 2018–2019 and the forecast period 2020–2030, usage of wire harness in automotive and telecommunication sectors and increasing application of wire harness in consumer electronics are factors expected to boost the global wire harness market during the forecast period
