About the Event
The CRU Wire & Cable Conference attracts an influential audience of senior executives from 30+countries from the
world’s cable makers, as well as the insulated wire and cable supply chain.
This year the CRU Wire & Cable Conference will focus on the pivotal role of wire and cable manufacturers in shaping the future of power generation, renewable energy, electrification, and the evolution of power grids.
CRU's Aisling Hubert, Wire & Cable comments:
"Over the past year, the global wire and cable industry has experienced a number of challenges, with rocketing interest rates to combat high inflation in Europe and North America; and China facing structural challenges in the residential construction market. Whilst globally, a changing labour market and spiralling costs of materials have frustrated cable producers.
Despite these challenges, there are reasons for great optimism. In China, an unprecedented rollout of renewable energy and transmission is underpinning economic growth. The US has outlined its monumental IRA with far-reaching applications, from energy generation to manufacturing. Europe’s REPowerEU plan and the subsequent initiatives to support European industry represent an increasing global focus on supporting domestic manufacturing capacity of key technologies, including wire and cables.
High voltage cables have seen double-digit growth rates in recent years, with some of the largest cable producers, from manufacturers to end-to-end energy infrastructure service providers, indicating that demand for wire and cables is only set to grow. As most countries have moved to outline ambitious energy targets and decarbonisation goals, the wire and cable industry will play a pivotal role as the backbone of the global energy transformation."
