BSRIA's structured cabling and IT Networks department, each year publishes a suite of 20+ market intelligence reports for the world's most prominent structured cabling markets. Each country report provides information on market size, trends and forecasts, routes to the market, key distributors/wholesalers and their key suppliers.
- The Danish cabling market has followed the same pattern as the Danish economy with very low growth. GDP grew by 0.7% - 1.6% annually from 2010 – 2013 with the exception of 2012, when the economy declined by 0.5%. The total cabling market is estimated at $30 million (DKK 176 million) in 2013 an increase of 3%, but still below the pre-recession level. It will continue to be below the 2008 level throughout the forecast period , if the market performs as predicted.
- The last report was published in March 2011, estimating 2010 at $28 million (DKK 159 million).
- The amount of copper cabling installed in data centres is limited and the main competitive factor in LAN is price. Suppliers and the channel to market are streamlining their costs, reducing manpower, and the training of SIs/ contractors has been cut. List prices have remained stable, but discounts are often applied to the total project. The share of Cat 6A continue to increase and Cat 5e is decreasing have a positive impact on the market.
- A large hospital (extension of Skejlby Hospital) followed by another hospital (Viborg sygehus) will use Passive Optical LAN (POL) in a pilot project in 2014, which is reducing the cabling cost further (estimated reduction in cost: almost 50%). However the overall cost savings will not be that great due to cost of the tubes/pipes, media converters and mini switches.
- Cabling in the data centre segment is estimated at $4.4 million and accounts for 14% of the cabling sold in Denmark. The number of large DC projects in 2012 and 2013 was limited.
- New non-residential construction decreased by 5% in 2012 followed by an estimated increase of 3% in 2013. New construction in Health increased in 2013, while Offices and Commercial continued to decline.
- Most of the shielded cables and connectivity sold are Cat 6A , and are sold as systems. Cat 6 and Cat 6+ account for a small volume, while sales of shielded Cat 5e products are negligible.
- Most of the shielded solutions sold are Schneider Electric systems and TE Connectivity. Brand-Rex, Panduit and Excel also sell shielded Cat 6A solutions.
- STP cables are sold mainly by TE Connectivity (more than 90%) with most being Cat 6A.
- TE and Schneider Electric sell a very small quantity of Cat 7/7A cables installed with Cat 7/7A connectivity (TE) or Cat 6A connectivity (SE).
- The use of fibre products in data centres is increasing, while its share of the LAN market remains constant (mainly backbone).
- The uptake of single-mode in data centres is increasing, the primary use being in MPOs. OM3 had a dominant share of the trunk cables used with MPO connectors and cassettes, but as many as 20-30% of the trunk cables are single-mode.
