Six per cent of that GDP is down to the automotive industry with a turnover of $73 billion. Two years from now that is expected to have doubled, and that is one growth region that will appeal to the wire and cable industry. Additionally, telecommunications and construction all play a massive part in India’s rapid expansion and all three sectors have seen growth of around 25 per cent annually. WIRE & CABLE INDIA has grown substantially in-line over recent years, and that is expected again after 28th to 30th October in Mumbai.

Industry New national sales manager Conneaut Industries Inc has named John Mancinelli as its new national sales manager. news Advanced Cable Asia heads for Shanghai! INTEGER Research, UK, is staging the third Advanced Cable Asia conference from 2nd to 4th December in Shanghai, China. Asia’s economic situation remains robust, with moderate growth forecast to continue in China and India and a stable outlook across the Southeast Asian region. As the region’s largest economy, China makes up a quarter of the global wire and cable demand and continues to have the largest cable production market in the world. On-going projects such as the ‘West–East Electricity Transfer’ and the expanding high-voltage power grid network have been driving a growth in demand for advanced power cables, while OPNOLUK Ä IYL VW[PJ JHISLZ HYL PUJYLHZPUNS` required for the ‘12th Five Year’ projects like ‘Broadband China’ and IT data centre infrastructure. However, Integer Research has lowered its projection for growth in Chinese wire and cable demand slightly to 3.5 per cent year-on-year IL[^LLU  HUK  ^OPJO YLÅ LJ[Z [OL Chinese government’s policy on market consolidation and sustainable growth. It is believed that the Chinese wire and cable market will need to have a new round of market YLZO\MÅ PUN PU [OL UL_[ ML^ `LHYZ PU VYKLY [V clean up the overcapacity and poor quality production. To survive in this extremely competitive market place, many Chinese wire and cable producers recognise the need to implement more effective strategies to differentiate and stand-out, including expansion into high-skilled sectors, stricter quality control schemes, and advanced automation of manufacturing processes. The South-East Asia market, as a whole, is expected to be one of the fastest-growing regions in the world, but the situation does vary country by country. Indonesia, Thailand and Malaysia are leading the way, while opportunities are also being seen in Myanmar, the Philippines and Singapore. Indonesia and Thailand, in particular, have been making large-scale investment into the sophisticated power transmission and telecommunication network infrastructure, which will trigger a huge demand for advanced WV^LY JHISLZ [LSLJVT JHISLZ HUK Ä IYL VW[PJ products. pic to come P 5L^UH[PVUHS ZHSLZTHUHNLY 1VOU4HUJPULSSP A global supplier VMZWLJPHSP[`Ä IYLZ used in applications for wire and cable, magnet wire, composites and industrial markets, Conneaut processes high performance industrial yarns, binder yarns, ripcords, braiding yarns and serving yarns.

Mr Mancinelli, an industrial engineer, comes from 15 years at AGY, where he was engaged as a product engineer and regional sales manager. P +LSLNH[LZSPZ[LUPU[LU[S`H[SHZ[`LHY»ZJVUMLYLUJL The forecast for production from Integer Research has indicated 6.5 per cent compound annual growth rate in both Indonesia and Thailand by 2018. It is vital for any cable industry stakeholders to plan in advance for these emerging opportunities. More developed markets such as Japan and South Korea are experiencing a recovery to their pre-crisis levels. In the year 2013/2014, Japan consumed over 700k tons of copper for the wire and cable industry and the market almost levelled out. The major challenge for market players there is to understand the fragmentation of both the global and Asian wire and cable markets and to maintain their leading positions in the industry. Advanced Cable Asia 2014 conference will provide the one-stop knowledge-sharing and networking platform for both global and Asian wire and cable executives to discuss the strategies and technologies needed to succeed in the advanced cable markets.
