The top three revenue-contributing product segments for the global building cable management systems market are discussed below:

  • Cable trays: Cable trays are units or assemblies of units, and associated fittings in the form of a rigid structural system, and these are used for securely fastening or supporting cables and raceways in buildings. These trays are uniquely designed to act as a bridging mechanism that allows wires and cables to spread over a longer distance. These products also have the functionality to support the structural infrastructure of a building’s electricity cables.
  • Raceways: The increasing adoption of raceways in office buildings and residential apartments for concealing wires or cables will fuel the growth of this market segment. Raceways are channels that allow safe passage of wires and cables, and it prevents any damage to the overall network. These systems also ensure the safety of incumbents from loose or open-ended cables without any cover and provide the flexibility to use them on walls, desks, floors, and ceilings.
  • Boxes, ducts, and racks and enclosures: The widespread applications of boxes, ducts, racks and enclosures in supporting a large volume of cable network infrastructure will increase its demand in the global market. These systems find specific applications of organizing, pulling, and separating cables in a building.  These products are commonly used in offices and workplaces to provide a complete cable management solution.

Bharath Kanniappan, a lead analyst at Technavio for research on Automation, stated:

The different raw materials that are used to manufacture cables trays include steel, aluminum, and fiber-reinforced plastics. The ladder is the most popular type of cable tray available in the market, and its advantages are excellent ventilation and drainage, affordability, and convenience in use. The extensive use of cable trays to replace conduit systems will help in the growth of this market segment during the estimated period.
