Key Growth Drivers

  • Significant rise in usage of the internet is driving the growth of the coaxial cable market as higher bandwidth requires secure and competent transmission lines to function without signal loss. Cisco, an American multinational technology company, mentioned that by 2023, nearly 60% of the mobile devices and connections globally will have 4G+ capability, surpassing 3G and below-capable devices and connections by severalfold.
  • Advancement in the telecom industry is further propelling the growth of the global coaxial cable market. Coaxial cable is used to convey data, video, and voice communication to customers. Invest India, a national investment promotion and facilitation agency reported that the telecom industry in India is the second largest in the world with a subscriber base of 1.17 billion as of July 2022 (wireless and wireline subscribers).
  • The diminishing number of subscriptions for cable television, owing to its high cost compared to online streaming platforms, is likely to hamper the growth of the global coaxial cable market. According to the Capital News Service (CNS), a news organization, stated that the basic plan of DirecTV costs US$ 75, and DTH costs US$ 70, on the other hand online streaming video platforms such as Netflix, Hulu, and Disney Plus, HBO Max, and other is offering basic plan at an average cost of US$ 8.
  • Furthermore, advancement in technology in form of fiber optic cables is hampering the growth of the coaxial cable market. Fiber optic internet transmission speed is faster than coaxial cables, which makes it ideal for large companies.
  • COVID-19 has decelerated the growth of the coaxial cable market. Increased use of subscription-based applications such as Netflix, Prime Video, Disney Plus, and others, were all those factors that reduce the usage of coaxial cables. But as the market is recovering and restrictions are easing down, it is estimated that the coaxial cable market will recover shortly. According to Ericsson, a Swedish networking and telecommunication company, 5G subscriptions grew by 70 million during Q1 2022 to around 620 million and by the end of 2027, 5G subscriptions are expected to reach 4.4 billion. As the use of the internet rises, the need for better and high-quality cable also ascends, which is expected to propel the growth of the coaxial cable market.

Key Trends by Market Segment:

By Cable Type:  The RG cable segment held the largest market share of the Global Coaxial Cable market in 2021. RG-type coaxial cables are commonly used in community antenna television (CATV) for residential and commercial installations.

  • RG-type coaxial cables are available in various sizes and applications in the market such as RG6 used for cable television, RG8 used for radio stations, and RG11 used for video distribution.
  • Multiple companies offer coaxial cables under a single RG-type segment such as Nexans, Huber+Suhner, Belden Inc., and Commscope.
  • Amphenol RF, a division of Amphenol Corporation, in October 2022, announced the expansion of the cable assembly portfolio with additional BNC to MCX and MMCX configurations. These assemblies are designed on flexible RG316 cable and offer reliable electrical performance.

By Application: The radio frequency transfer segment accounted for the largest market share in 2021, as it is used for multiple wired connections such as Wi-Fi, phones, television cables, and others.

  • A coaxial cable is an electric cable used to transmit radio frequency from one point to another. Radio frequency transfer has multiple applications including computer network connections, antennas, and the distribution of cable television signals.

Wi-Fi is the key component in radio frequency transfer applications, as it helps in transferring secure and reliable data from one point to another. Increasing average Wi-Fi speed is a driving factor for the global coaxial cable market, as higher bandwidth requires high-quality cables to transfer the data. According to Cisco, the average Wi-Fi network connection speed of 30.3 Mbps in 2018 will exceed 91.6 Mbps by 2023.

By End-User: Internet service provider is likely to be the fastest growing segment during the forecast period (2022–2028), owing to the increasing demand for data across the world. Internet service providers require cable to transmit the data from one end to another.

  • According to Cisco, the total number of internet users is projected to grow from 3.9 billion in 2018 to 5.3 billion by 2023 at a CAGR of 6% worldwide.
  • As per Cisco, by 2023, the top three 5G countries in terms of the percentage of devices and connections shared on 5G will be China at 20.7%, Japan at 20.6%, and the United Kingdom at 19.5%.

By Geography: Asia Pacific accounted for the largest market share within the global coaxial cable market in 2021, owing to the growing mobile telecommunication networks.

  • Invest India, the national investment promotion and facilitation agency reported that the telecom industry in India is the second largest in the world with a subscriber base of 1.17 billion as of July 2022 (wireless and wireline subscribers).
  • According to the International Trade Association (ITA), a U.S. agency that promotes trade and investment, in 2020 stated that over the next five years, the four Japanese carriers including NTT Docomo, KDDI au, Softbank, and Rakuten Mobile, will spend more than US$14 billion combined in capital expenditure to build its 5G networks. In 2019, U.S. suppliers exported more than US$720 million in telecom equipment to Japan.

Cisco in its annual internet report, 2018-2023 mentioned that Asia Pacific internet users as a percentage of the regional population are forecasted to grow by 20%, which is highest among other regions.
