Frank Murawski, president of FTM Consulting, Inc., has announced the publication of its latest market research study.

The study, Worldwide Structured Cabling Systems (SCS) Market, projects that the SCS market will grow from US$15.3 billion in 2008, at a compound annual growth rate of 13.7%, to US$29.1 billion by 2013.

The study examines five major geographic regions of the world. The Americas, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia/Pacific and Rest of the World .

On a global basis, the study’s findings indicate that growth in fiber cabling will surpass growth in copper cabling during the next five years.

In 2008, fiber cabling accounted for 52.7% of the total global SCS market.

By 2013, it is expected that fiber cabling will account for 60.1% of the total global market.

The Americas market, said Murawski, is being driven by data centre cabling, however, it is projected that within a few years, it will driven by the addition of IP subnets to the existing core network.
