The slotted wiring duct segment accounted for the largest product segment owing to its lightweight, heat resistance, vibration control, and scorelines allowing easy finger & sidewall section removal properties. In addition, these are used for managing cable management in the data centers of telecommunications and the energy & power industry which is expected to boost product demand.Enhancement in construction and growing investments in construction developments in the economy have propelled market growth in the past few years.

The U.S. had the largest share in terms of revenue and accounted for 74.3% of the total market in 2021. The wiring ducts are used in various applications for neat and efficient routing of patch and equipment cords from the switch/server to the patch panel. Also, it has extensive usage in data centers. The U.S. broadband industry along with both fixed and mobile network operators are investing heavily in fiber networks. As the U.S. telecommunications industry is seeing increased activity from the major telecommunication and cable companies, which is expected to propel the market for U.S. wiring ducts.

The wiring duct market in North America is characterized by strong competition owing to the presence of prominent manufacturers of these ducts, including ABB, Panduit, IBOCO, and HellermannTyton which serve major geographies across the region. These manufacturers compete with each other based on the quality and costs of their products to increase their profitability and gain a competitive edge.

Some of the key vendors in the market, such as ABB, Panduit, and Omega Engineering, Inc, are forward integrated, hence have their own distributor and representative network. This reduces price volatility for manufacturers and ensures a consistent supply of goods, irrespective of changing geo-political tensions. The rise in acceptance of wiring duct products has encouraged companies to develop innovative products like halogen-free, fire-retardant, and thermoplastic material for production which is compatible with multiple applications.

End-users consider several factors for choosing manufacturers or distributors of wiring ducts, including the variety and the quality of raw materials used for their development and their designs based on the requirements of applications wherein these ducts are to be used, along with their colors and estimated prices.

Product Insights

Slotted wiring ducts led the market and accounted for a revenue of USD 56.2 million in 2021 owing to their ability to act as an alternative to cable ties where ducts can guide and organize short runs of electrical cables in control panels, enclosures, and machines. The narrow and wide fingers of these slotted wiring ducts hold the cables inside yet allow the cables to be directed in and out of the duct. Also, the cost-effectiveness and resistance to dust and moisture accumulation offered by slotted wiring ducts are expected to fuel their demand across North America.

The cover on these ducts can also be removed to create an open duct offering easy maintenance and installation by the workers. Many manufacturers also provide a finished product that is already present in standard enclosure size, so end-users do not need to measure and cut the duct on their own. These characteristics are expected to drive demand for slotted wiring ducts over the forecast period.

Solid-wall wiring duct product segment is expected to grow at a significant CAGR of 4.7% over the forecast period. The demand for these products is expected to grow on account of their growing use for short-length electrical wiring in machines, control panels, and enclosures and their widespread availability with removable covers.

The flexible wiring duct product segment accounted for a market share of 10.1% in 2021, owing to rising demand for routing cables around curves of the control panel. This is expected to drive major demand over the forecast periodFlexible wiring ducts are also slotted on the sidewall with finger designs. However, these are used for routing and protecting the cables in applications that require flexibility. The alternate ribs present on the product exhibit an angle pointing slightly inwards which makes it ideal to insert and extract cables.

End-Use Insights

The manufacturing application segment accounted for the largest share in 2021 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.2% over the forecast period from 2022 to 2030. The increasing population of North America and the surge in correlated demand for manufactured goods have resulted in efforts by manufacturing companies to enhance their productivity. This fuels the demand for cables that connect different types of machinery using wiring ducts in manufacturing facilities. These aforementioned factors are expected to boost market demand for wiring ducts.

Wire and Cable management is not just about ensuring the optical aspect of the facility, but also enabling orderly wire routing that saves maintenance costs and time for the manufacturing facility. Additionally, it enables easy repair work and maintenance of cables, as well as enhances the general operational safety of manufacturing facilities. The wide range of wiring ducts offered by different companies is expected to lead the market demand in North American manufacturing facilities.

The telecommunications segment is the fastest-growing segment at a CAGR of 4.6% over the forecast period. The rapid growth of revenue owing to surging investments by governments of different countries in North America to expand and enhance their digital infrastructures is likely to boost the market demand over the projected period.

North America wiring duct market share, by end-use, 2021 (%)

The construction segment of the wiring duct market in North America is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.2% in terms of revenue over the forecast period. These products are used to separate cables in electric wiring systems and prevent similar cables from interfering with each other. In multiunit housing apartments, wiring ducts can efficiently separate the storage spaces to remove the clutter and mismanagement of electrical cables. These ducts are mainly used for efficiently power wiring in buildings, apartments, offices, and other public buildings hence will increase market demand in construction application in North America.

Regional Insights

Total revenue in the U.S. dominated the North America wiring duct market in 2021 and is projected to grow at a CAGR of 3.8% during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the growing use of neat and efficient routing of patch and equipment cords from the switch/server to the patch panel. Hence, extensive use of these products in data centers is expected to drive the market demand in the country.

The energy and power industry utilizes wiring ducts for the installation of solar panels, wind turbines, and also in power transmission centers owing to their characteristics of efficiently connecting cables to the control panel. Additionally, wiring ducts manage the weight of cables on the junction boxes of solar panels. The U.S. energy & power industry is driven by continuous investments from the government which are key factors driving the demand for wiring ducts in the region.

The well-established telecommunication industry in Canada is expected to contribute to the demand for wiring duct products and solutions in the region over the forecast period. According to the Canadian Wireless Telecommunications Association (CWTA), the telecommunications industry remained a critical player in supporting the economic growth of the country in 2021 and contributed approximately USD 75.00 billion to the GDP in the same year.
