For an all-encompassing view of the wire and cable industry, CRU provides market analysis and forecasts on the related metallic cable and optical fibre sectors.

Working closely with CRU’s Aluminium and Copper teams, we provide market analysis for wire and cable and fibre optic markets, including five-year forecasts on production, consumption and price of all major products. We also examine key end-uses in depth: high-voltage and extra high-voltage; optical fibre and fibre optic cables; and telecom cables.

CRU provides consistent and market-leading analysis of the global wire and cable sectors: our methodology is robust and transparent, and we develop our outlooks with the support of our economics team.
