The datacom building cabling market could show signs of revival over the next five years, according to FTM Consulting, Inc. The market research firm recently released a study titled “Fiber Cabling Systems: U.S. Building Market” that attributes the downturn in the cabling market to the economic slowdown, which restricted capital expenditures for local area networks (LANs). The initial LANs were installed in the '90s, and by 1999 the cabling market became saturated. Although the economic rebound should help drive the cabling market, double-digit growth in fiber cabling isn't expected until 2005. FTM forecasts that the two fiber cabling applications that will experience the most growth over the next five years will be campus and storage area networks.
