Global Copper Wire and Cable Market Size to Reach USD 291.31 Billion in 2032 | Emergen Research


Expansion of telecommunication networks, data centers, and cloud computing services is a major factor driving copper wire and cable market revenue growth

Vancouver, Sept. 28, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The global copper wire and cable market size was USD 167.23 Billion in 2022 and is expected to register a revenue CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period, according to the latest analysis by Emergen Research. Expansion of telecommunication networks, data centers, and cloud computing services is a major factor driving market revenue growth.

The expansion of telecommunication networks, data centers, and cloud computing services is playing a vital role in driving revenue growth for the copper wire and cable market. A strong and dependable infrastructure is required to handle rising demand for high-speed Internet connectivity and data storage. Copper wire and cables are essential components in building the networking and data transmission systems required for telecommunications networks, data centers, and cloud computing services. The superior electrical conductivity of copper ensures efficient data transfer, while its durability and reliability make it ideal for withstanding the demands of these environments. The migration toward higher bandwidth requirements, such as the deployment of 5G networks, further amplifies the need for copper wire and cables.

In addition, increasing adoption of copper wire and cable in Electric Vehicle (EV) charging stations is driving revenue growth of the market. EV charging stations require high-capacity power transmission to deliver electricity to vehicles quickly, and low resistance of copper enables efficient energy transfer with minimal power loss. The number of Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points is expected to surpass 20 million by 2030. The North American market alone is expected to witness significant growth, reaching a value of USD 18.6 billion by 2030. Furthermore, by 2040, it is expected that passenger EVs will require over 3.7 million tons of copper annually, while passenger Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles will require just over 1 million tons of copper.

However, volatile prices of copper pose a major challenge and restrain revenue growth of the copper wire and cable market. Copper is a key raw material in the production of wire and cables, and its price fluctuations can impact profitability of manufacturers and suppliers. The price of copper is subject to various factors, including global supply and demand dynamics, geopolitical events, and economic conditions. Sharp price increases can lead to higher production costs for wire and cable manufacturers, which result in higher prices for customers or reduced profit margins.
