    Market Insights

    Wires & cables are often considered commodity product and form a crucial component in an aircraft. Aerospace wires & cables are required to conform to several predetermined standards, distinct to each region. They are used in a wide range of applications, such as avionics, lighting, and flight control surfaces.

    Being one of the building block elements in aircraft functioning, wires & cables have ceaselessly been in demand with a gradual increase of usage in the modern aircraft. For instance, Boeing 737 has ~40 miles of wires & cables. The company almost doubled the wires & cables consumption to 100 miles in its B767 program and further tripled to 310 miles in its B787 program. Similar trajectory has been recorded for the Airbus programs.

    Post recording a hefty decline in 2020 owing to the highly perturbed condition of the aerospace industry, the aerospace wires & cables market headed to the road of recovery, marking a healthy growth in 2021-2022, ultimately reached at value of US$ 526.5 Million in 2022. The market is estimated to log a promising growth of 9.5% (CAGR) during 2023-2028.

    Recent Product Developments: The major players mainly focus on developing wires & cables with lighter weight, increased durability, and better resistive features. For instance, Nexans S.A’s range of coaxial cables to replace the existing coaxial links WD and WN cables in Airbus A350 aircraft, enabling a 20%-30% weight reduction.

    Recent Market JVs and Acquisitions: There were hardly any strategic alliances, including M&As, JVs, etc., performed in the recent years. Unlike the global wires & cables market, the aerospace wires & cables market recorded less significant M&A activities. However, there have been a few strategic developments, which shaped the competitive dynamics in the market, since 2011. For instance,

    • In 2016, Carlisle Companies Inc. acquired Micro Coax, a leading supplier of high-frequency coaxial wires & cables and cable assemblies for mission-critical RF applications for defense, satellite, etc.
    • Prysmian Group completely acquired Draka in 2011, to form the world’s biggest cable manufacturer, supplying to all key industries.
