Growth in Latin America?s lan/premises data interconnect cable use

Latin American consumption of interconnect cable in local area network/premises data network applications is expected to increase about 20.4% per year, from $254.3 million in 1996 to $644.4 million in 2001, according to a study by ElectroniCast Corp. of San Mateo, CA. According to the study, Latin American lan/Premise Data Network Interconnect Cable Market Forecast, consumption will expand at an average annual rate of 11% between 2001 and 2006, reaching $1.08 billion.

The report contains a separate database for each of the following countries: Argentina, Bolivia, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Ecuador, Paraguay, Peru, Uruguay, and Venezuela (South America); Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Panama (Central America); and Mexico.

The consumption of fiber-optic cable in Latin American premises data networks in 1996 is estimated to be $11.8 million. The report predicts an average growth of 35.7% per year between 1996 and 2001, to $51.6 million. Between 2001 and 2006, use of fiber-optic cable in the premises data network is expected to grow on average 25.8% annually, to $161.6 million by 2006.

According to the report, 17% of the fiber-optic cable used in premises data networks in 1996 was singlemode cable, while 83% was multimode cable. By 2001, the report predicts, 45% of the fiber-optic cable in such networks will be singlemode cable and 55% multimode, and by 2006, 52% will be singlemode cable and 48% multimode.

The average annual growth rate for copper cable between 1996 and 2001 is expected to be 19.5%, an increase from $243.15 million to $593 million. From 2001 and 2006, copper cable will grow annually on average 9.3%, to $932 million. Fiber-optic cable use will rise from a 4% share in 1996 to 8% in 2001 to 15% in 2006. Copper cable use will decrease from a 96% share in 1996 to 92% in 2001 to 85% in 2006.
