The global radio frequency (RF) cable market to grow at a CAGR of 9.18% during the period 2017-2021.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global radio frequency (RF) cable market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of coaxial cables of different impedance levels and RF over fiber-optic cables. The report also includes a discussion of the Key vendors operating in this market.
One trend in the market is demand for upcoming 5G technology. The growth of the RF cables market has been a driver for the telecom sector since it facilitates the use of optical fibers and coaxial cables for last mile connections. The usual connections are made through copper cabling.
According to the report, one driver in the market is increase in internet data traffic. When a fiber-optic cable is used for transmission of data, there is very low attenuation since it is not affected by electromagnetic interference, which allows accurate data transmission. Fiber optics offer accessibility, agility, and high speeds.
Further, the report states that one challenge in the market is complex installation process and high implementation cost. An RF cable system consists of the implementation of hardware and support cost, which sums up to a sizeable amount. The installation process of RF cable devices is complex in nature because of the requirement of high levels of accuracy and the involvement of a number of small processes.
