United Kingdom Wires and Cables Market Outlook

The United Kingdom wires and cables market size reached approximately USD 6.9 billion in 2023. The market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 2.90% between 2024 and 2032, reaching a value of around USD 9.1 billion by 2032.

 

Key Takeaways

  • Some of the leading end users of wires and cables are energy and power, construction, and aerospace and defence.
  • In 2022, the market share of EVs increased to 28.2% as compared to 20.4% in 2021.
  • In 2021, the value added for maintenance, repair, and operations (MRO) in the UK’s aerospace manufacturing sector reached GBP 0.9 billion.
  • In 2022, new construction order in the UK increased by 1.4% to GBP 80,837 million, aided by private infrastructure, private commercial and other public non-housing investments.

 

By 2050, the electricity demand in the UK is estimated to increase by about 50%, resulted by the shift from fossil fuels to electricity as the key fuel in the transport and building sectors. The adoption of electricity is further creating a significant demand for wires and cables, as they play a key role in the transmission of electricity over longer distances, such as from wind and solar farms to residential and commercial buildings and industries.

 

The United Kingdom wires and cables market is also aided by the expansion of the automotive sector. In January 2024, a total of 20,935 BEVs, 18,744 hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and 11,944 plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) were newly registered in the UK.  The government of the UK has laid out plans to phase out new petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030. The increasing awareness regarding the environmental benefits of EVs such as reduced emissions and improved air quality is further increasing its adoption. 


Aluminium is a key material for the production of cables and wires. The aluminium sector contributes about GBP 2.97 billion in Gross Value Added (GVA) to the UK economy.  Aluminium is being increasingly used for the production of high-voltage cables and also caters to the green energy transition initiatives of the country.

 

The overall value of projects given detailed planning approval in Scotland in Q1 2024 increased by 11% in the same period in 2023. The Scottish government has laid out several plans such as Infrastructure Investment Plan worth GBP 26 billion to deliver high-quality public services. Such developments in the construction sector support the use of wires and cables for power transmission, thus supporting the United Kingdom wires and cables market growth.
