The infrastructure and development initiatives directly or indirectly boost the growth of the market. The Ethernet LAN cables have great durability and lesser security risks compared to additional interacting services like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technologies; these factors will directly lead to the expansion of the market. Thus, driving the LAN Cable market revenue.


LAN Cable Market Segment Insights:


LAN Cable Type Insights


The LAN Cable Market segmentation, based on type, includes Copper and Fiber. The copper segment dominates the market, accounting for the largest market revenue as these are cost-effective and have greater flexibility than fiber-optic cable and thus dominate the market in terms of revenue and volume. The two types of copper cable are Network cable (CAT3, CAT5, CAT5e, and others) and Power over Ethernet (CAT6, CAT6A, CAT7, and CAT8). The fiber optic cable is anticipated to grow at a faster CAGR. The fiber optic cable is of two types, namely: single-mode and multi-mode fiber-optic cables.


LAN Cable Form Insights


The LAN Cable Market segmentation, based on form, includes Solid Ethernet Cable and Stranded Ethernet Cable. The solid ethernet cable dominates the market as it has superior performance and is resistant to electrical interference, and works well with the traditional punch-down the application. Solid copper conductors are much strong and durable, which makes them best for outdoor use. These are often present in the lengths required for in-wall or plenum space installations and also for outdoor uses. Furthermore, the Stranded Ethernet Cable is anticipated to grow at a faster CAGR. Stranded cables are much flexible and can withstand greater bending when compared to rigid solid conductors that can fail when flexed too many times.
