LAN Cable Market Overview

The LAN Cable Market valuation is expected to grow from USD 5,778.9 Million in 2020 to USD 9.60 Billion in 2030, with a compound annual growth rate of 4.8% during the period of assessment.

A LAN cable is one of the hardware components of a network that is used to provide communication over a local network by connecting the router to all the peripheral devices and that router or modem is further connected to a local server. These copper cables connect laptops or computers with routers, modems, or switches. No doubt a LAN offers connectivity to a small area, but several LANs can be connected to create a bigger network. Based on transfer speed, internet connectivity, and bandwidth these cables are classified into various categories and the end-user can select one of these according to his requirements.

Covid-19 Analysis

The coronavirus pandemic has given a very hard time to most of the manufacturing, developing, production, and logistic units of the LAN Cable Market. Due to this pandemic situation, restrictions were imposed by the government of different countries. No doubt due to the closure of manufacturing units the LAN cables were impacted badly to some extent but it is one of the few markets that have experienced positive growth opportunities during this covid-19 times. As every person was working from home and for the entertainment purposes was using online platforms which can only be operated efficiently if the person has good telecommunication network and that in turn increased the demand for such LAN cables which can help the person in transferring the data at a fast pace and not experience any kind of disruptions in their work. Also, these telecommunication, internet, and broadcasting & cable services, of which the LAN cable is an important component, are considered to be essential services and are exempted from any kind of lockdowns.

Market Dynamics


First of the rising demand for the establishment of data centers and making use of them at a very large scale by the business and government organizations is one of the many factors that are responsible for the growth of LAN Cable Market. Secondly, the rising demand for high-speed data transfer is another factor that may enhance the expansion of LAN Cable Market. Also, the increasing infrastructure and construction projects can indirectly, to some extent, be responsible for the growth of LAN Cable Market. Lastly due to their high durability and lower security threats in comparison to other networking techniques such as Bluetooth or Wi-Fi technologies are other elements that may be directly linked to the magnification of this industry. There were about 7600 data centers present worldwide in 2020 which will increase to 9800 centers by 2025


In this modern era where 5G is used in concurrence with private long-term evolution that is LTE is one of the vital elements that may hamper the growth of LAN Cable Market. Secondly, these cables cannot be carried everywhere by any person, they can be used while sitting at a single permanent place. So the rising demand for wireless products which can be carried where ever the person wants to take them is another factor that is acting as a barrier in the way of the growth of LAN Cable Market. Also, the installation cost associated with such cables is very high and it is another factor that may hinder the growth of the market.

Technology Analysis

The major issue related to these LAN cables is their portability and the researchers and key players are working on creating such type of small and portable device to which these LAN cables can be connected and used as the normal ones and can be carried along by the user with him anywhere he wants to. Also, taking into consideration the requirements of big data centers, the manufacturers are constantly trying to develop a kind of modem that can take the load of 5-6 modems and routers alone which in turn will prove to be cost-effective to many organizations and further enhance the use of LAN cables.
