There has been a growing dependence on computers, laptops, and associated technologies. Advancements in technology have led to multiple households possessing home offices with at least one powerful main desktop computer to manage tasks requiring high speed and more memory, such as editing photos, videos, websites, etc. Indeed, personal computers, laptops and smartphones have become more of an everyday item. All these gadgets and appliances need to be connected efficiently to communicate seamlessly even if located across spaces or rooms. Such requirements have led to increased demands from the low voltage cable market.
Flat TV screens in office or airport lounges that stream videos from the internet, and the expanding range of DAB radios that are linked to the internet and access radio stations across the globe, use low voltage cabling for superior performance, increased reliability, and flexibility. A wired network also ensures less interference and more security.
As different types of products like personal computers, phones, security cameras and TVs are linked to one another for seamless communication, it becomes rather important that the wiring and connections are well-organised, and well-labelled. Further, there must continually be the capacity to modify and add elements to the network. Thus, several homeowners, homebuilders, and home systems installers today prefer to set-up preconfigured high-speed cabling systems, also called structured cabling or wiring.
Low voltage refers to electrical wiring and trim not carrying the same amount of current as fixtures, power outlets, and switches. Objects considered low voltage draw less examination during inspections as the exposed wire does not present the same electrocution risk as a standard wire. Low voltage cables are generally employed for telephones, landscape lighting, garage door opener controls, smart doorbells, audio-visual wiring, nternet network and Wi-Fi, alarm system sensors and controls, intercom systems, heating and cooling thermostats, motion sensors, security system cameras, cable television, surround sound audio systems, and LED or low voltage lighting.
Low voltage wiring operates on infrastructure known as structured cabling. Low voltage cables are available in many sizes, types, and materials, each with specific uses. Cables generally comprise three major constituents - insulation, conductors, and protective outer sheaths. The constitution of individual cables differs with application.
Low voltage cabling is extensively used by several industries, including those engaged in renewable energy, airports, distribution and power networks, automation, windmills, water, nuclear and thermal power stations, marine, telecommunications, defence, building, mining, offshore applications, ship wiring, railways, audio-visual and manufacturing industries.
Many types of low voltage cables are employed in LANs, supporting the low voltage cable market growth. Networks use various types of cables to fulfil their specific purposes. Cat5e is used for unshielded twisted-pair cabling (UTP); it can facilitate up to 100/1,000 Megabits (Mbps) at 350 Hz bandwidth. Unshielded, Cat5 and Cat5e are Ethernet cables that are employed to transmit video and telephone signals. These cables are utilised to link phones, automation networks, computer networks, video/audio, and more.
Cat5 was replaced with its improved model, the CAT6, and it carries more twists per cm as compared to Cat5 which allows for quicker data transfer. Cat6 also better limits crosstalk and system noise. Coaxial cables are employed to send internet, television, video, and voice data. It is made of copper, aluminium, and an exterior plastic jacket that shields from electromagnetic interference.
C-wire or common wire links low voltage heating systems with corresponding thermostats that are maintaining continuous power. Majority of newer HVAC systems use C-wires which makes them compatible with smart thermostats. Speaker wire is generally employed to send sound signals from a receiver (or amplifier) to a speaker. As the gauge becomes smaller, the wire becomes bigger and capable of handling more power.
While wireless networks are increasingly becoming faster every year, low voltage wiring still remains the superior alternative.
There is greater energy efficiency with low voltage wiring; it does not use over 50V of power, and is a preferred choice fuelling the low voltage cable market.
Low voltage wiring has greater scalability and is more streamlined when set up in a structured cabling system controlled with patch panels.
Low voltage wiring may be customised to meet the requirements of any organisation, firm or business.
Lower voltage wiring poses lower risk of electrocution and serious bodily harm.
Setting up low voltage cabling as an individual project may be generally disruptive to decor and prove to be more expensive.
By installation, the global low voltage cable market is segmented into Overhead (further broken down by type into Conductors, Fittings and Fixtures, and others), and Underground (further broken down by type into PVC Cables, XLPE Cables, Cable Terminations, and others). On the basis of material, the market is bifurcated into Copper and Aluminium. On the basis of application, the market is classified into Industrial, Commercial, and Residential. On the basis of region, the market is segmented into Europe, North America, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East and Africa.
The comprehensive EMR report provides an in-depth assessment of the market based on the Porter's five forces model along with giving a SWOT analysis. The report gives a detailed analysis of the following key players in the global low voltage cable market, assessing the competitive landscape and observing latest developments like mergers, acquisitions, investments, and expansion plans. Major players in the domain include Prysmian S.p.A., ABB Ltd., General Cable Corporation, Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd., KEI Industries Limited, NKT A/S, Riyadh Cables Group, and others.
Bare overhead conductors are used more where significant amounts of electrical energy need to be transported at high voltage, across long distances, such as open spaces or open countryside. Underground insulated cables are more popular where electrical energy needs to be transported at lower voltages over shorter distances or in populated places like cities and towns. Thus, growing populations and urbanisation are expected to boost the global market. Increasing urbanisation is a major factor expected to drive the global low voltage cable market. Underground cables may strengthen systems and offer greater resilience and decrease maintenance needs.
Both aluminium and copper are used for home and office cabling solutions. However, copper is preferred over aluminium because of the ease of use it offers. Copper wires are more durable, stable and perform better than aluminium wires. Copper also exhibits better conductivity than aluminium. However, copper wires are more expensive than aluminium wires. While aluminium wires are cheaper, these are corrosive and may cause fires. Considering the safety and durability offered by copper wires, it is expected that copper wires and cables would drive low voltage cable market growth.
Low voltage wiring has gained prominence due to rising business digitisation. Today, any commercial installation essentially needs computers, internet access, and phone access. These important systems warrant appropriate low voltage wiring. Growing dependence of businesses and expanding business operations of which digitisation is a critical component are expected to drive market growth.
Increasing number of laptops, computers and smartphones being used by households is expected to boost low voltage cable market growth. There are many people who have set up home offices and work from home. This trend is also expected to stimulate market growth.
