Integer Research have released a downloadable paper on developments in Middle East and North African wire & cable markets, including the impact of the Arab Spring on cable demand.
The paper was delivered at Arabcab’s Annual Conference in Marrakech (23 – 25 September 2012), based on information taken from the new Focus Report: Middle East and North Africa Markets, which is due to be released in Q4 2012.
Focus Report: Middle East and North Africa Markets
Recently the MENA cable industry has undergone significant changes. After a boom period of fervent activity in key end-use sectors, and strong investment in local production capacity, the global financial crisis has brought slower demand growth and overcapacity. The fragile and slow recovery in global growth, plus the events of the Arab Spring, has left clouds of uncertainty over the local industry.
Following Integer’s 2010 report – previously the most authoritative study on the region’s wire & cable market – this new study seeks to identify likely future developments, and highlight opportunities, based on an unbiased and expertly researched viewpoint.
