Changing the entire cable is a very expensive process. Faults in cables, such as crushing, kinking, and bending are not always visible. These have created a high demand for cable testing systems.

Cable testing helps in checking the cable conformity, quality, and functionality. It often aids in detecting the actual issue before it causes any downtime. Signs of a faulty cable include moisture on the cable, corrosion on the copper, and cracks in the insulation.

As cable faults require the spending of huge sums for repairing, the need for cable testing is expected to surge for ensuring that the joints are in good condition. The easy availability of a wide range of innovative equipment for testing cables is a major factor that is estimated to drive the market. 

Which are Some Prominent Drivers Spearheading Cable Testing Market Growth?

The demand for cable testing is set to grow at a rapid pace in future years owing to improper system deployment, expansion of the electronics industry, poor performance of new network systems, and increasing usage of cables in emerging economies. The urgent need for innovative cable testing equipment in aerospace, railway, roadways, energy, marine, and automotive sectors is another vital factor that is set to bode well for the global market.

In addition to that, the ongoing technological advancement in the electronics industry and the rising production of renewable energy are projected to augment the growth in this market. The booming IT sector is another factor that is anticipated to drive the market.

What are the Challenges Faced by the Cable Testing Industry?

Sometimes, conducting a few cable tests can cause harmful effects, which may hamper the sales of cable testing equipment. High testing and certification lead time is also set to hinder the growth in this market. The lack of awareness and skilled workers, especially in emerging economies are some of the other factors that can obstruct the growth.

Why is Asia Pacific Emerging as an Opportunistic Cable Testing Market?

The surging demand for high voltage cables in a wide range of industries, such as energy, offshore wind farms, and transmission and distribution utilities is expected to bolster the Asia Pacific cable testing market share in the forthcoming years. The increasing demand for consumer electronics in China and India, as well as the presence of a large number of electronics manufacturers in these countries would augur well for the regional market.

As per the India Brand Equity Foundation (IBEF), by 2025, the Indian electronics manufacturing industry is set to reach US$ 520 billion. Exports of electronic goods stood at US$ 1.17 billion and US$ 1.35 billion in September and October 2021, respectively. These numbers are projected to surge at a fast pace, thereby boosting the Asia Pacific market.
