Industry Insights

Coaxial cable consists of a copper wire that is surrounded by an insulation layer and then by an extruded metal tube or by grounded braided wire shield, the whole thing wrapped in another insulation layer and finally in the protective outer layer. Metal tube has high transmission capacity but is used in specific applications due to its rigidity. Coaxial cable end connections are usually made up of specially designed radio frequency (RF) connectors. Coaxial cables are used for transferring radio frequency, the internet and video data over distributed networks. This cable often referred as coax, is usually used by television companies for transporting television broadcast signals in customer premises and also by customers for connecting television receivers to an external antenna.

Short coaxial cables are available that are used in ham radio systems and to connect home video equipment.Coaxial is widely used for computer networks such as Ethernet. Coaxial cable supports 10 to 100 Mbps and is relatively inexpensive. Increasing telecom and IT spending in North America, low cost of installation, and technological advancement in coaxial cables and related equipment for enabling reliable data transfer are expected to be major drivers for North America coaxial cable market. Formerly, coaxial cable was widely used in LANs; however now LANs use optical fiber cable, twisted pair wiring and radio waves due to their various benefits such as lower cost greater capacity and ease of use.

Increasing raw material prices and high competition from the substitutes are expected to be major market restraints.Initiatives for extending distribution channels with the purpose to serve potential rural markets and issue of DOCSIS 3.1 (Data Over Cable Service Interface Specification 3.1) may act as major opportunities for the players in North America coaxial cable market.

Application Insights

Coaxial cables are used in data communication and in manufacturing of communication devices and equipment. Application segments for North America coaxial cable market are video distribution, radio frequency transfer and internet data transfer. Video distribution segment has held the largest market share for coaxial cable application. This segment is expected to grow at highest rate due to increasing popularity of over the top (OTT) services, video on demand (VOD) and internet protocol, followed by internet data transfer and radio frequency transfer. 

End-Use Insights

End users for coaxial cables include system integrators, CATV companies, telephone service providers, military and aerospace, construction industry, internet service providers and others.
