The Electric Wire and Cable market in North America is witnessing a trend of growing awareness about environmental concerns which is leading many companies to focus on developing wires that have a lower negative impact on the environment. The chemicals used in these wires have enhanced fireproofing properties and do not produce hazardous fumes in the case of a fire.

The vendors are also focusing on other parameters such as flexibility, efficiency, and ease of usage so that these features are not compromised while producing power cables that are eco-friendly. Some of the eco-friendly functionalities that major vendors maintain in power cables are flame retardancy, fire retardancy, lower emissions of poisonous fumes, non-corrosiveness, and halogen-free wires.

According to the report, the increase in demand for wires and cables from the ICT sector has resulted from the continuous improvement in communication technologies. A robust ICT infrastructure helps companies to secure, enhance, and control business operations efficiently.

Further, the report states that the raw material cost for manufacturing wires and cables has increased considerably in the past couple of years. The cost of copper, aluminum, polyethylene, PVC, and other plastics and metals has increased due to the increasing demand-supply gap.
