The advancements in technology happening every day transforming the world into a more connected world, necessitate the need for the safe and secure transmission of data. Bulks of data transfer happen every day ranging from personal to organizational data and from within a house to across the globe. The successful transmission of data thus has become a concern nowadays. With a whole gamut of options nowadays, as a means to transfer the data, coaxial cables are used from years and till the date due to reliable data transfer gather a high demand in the market.
Coaxial cable is a type of cable that has an inner conductor covered by an insulating layer, which is surrounded by a tubular conducting shield. The external interferences are eliminated by larger amounts due to this type of design, giving rise to a reliable transfer of data. They are majorly used in the cable television industry, military and aerospace, telephone service providers and other industries. Because of the wide range of applications provided by the cable, they are expected to have high demand in coaxial cable market resulting in a promising CAGR.
