Coinciding with the show’s 10th anniversary, CSPG will work with the region’s most well-known wire and cable suppliers and bring them to the fair to display their latest innovations. The synergistic collaboration between Wire & Cable Guangzhou and Electric Power Asia benefits both events due to their combined power in attracting a larger number of target buyers and key decision makers.”

One Belt, One Road Initiative helps boost demand for wire and cable products

Leveraging on the Chinese government’s ‘Belt and Road Initiative’, China’s wire and cable industry is expected to experience an increase in demand for its products, solutions and other related services. Wires and cables are core components for building global network infrastructures. To capitalise on this booming market, Chinese enterprises have already begun to explore overseas business opportunities within the hydropower, nuclear and wind power sectors, as well as electrical and communication networks. Demand in the domestic wire and cable market has been fuelled by growth in the power generation, communication and railway sectors. China state-owned news channel “” also predicts that the country’s wire and cable enterprises will produce over 44.9 billion meters of cable by 2020, ensuring a continuous positive outlook for the industry.
