Publication Month: Mar 2023 | Report Code: TIPRE00029840 | No. of Pages: 191 | Category: Manufacturing and Construction | Status: Published

[Research Report] The wire rod market is expected to grow from US$ 1,621.27 million in 2022 to US$ 1,965.21 million by 2028; it is estimated to register a CAGR of 3.3% from 2022 to 2028.

The growing urbanization and digitization across the world is raising the demand for uninterrupted electric supply. For this, the need for the upgradation or installation of new electric transmission and distribution systems is increasing globally. Subsequently, governments of various countries have increased their investments in the power & energy sector. In November 2022, the US Department of Energy (DOE) announced an investment of US$ 13 billion in supporting the upgradation and expansion of the US electric grid. The US government will provide this funding under the Grid Resilience Innovative Partnership (GRIP) Programme, the Transmission Facilitation Programme, and President Joe Biden’s Bipartisan Infrastructure Law. Through this funding, the US government aims to increase the reliability of power grids by building transformative projects. In November 2022, Ofgem, an energy regulator of the UK, announced the five-year (between 2023 and 2028) investment package of ~US$ 26.6 billion for electricity distribution network companies. This investment is made to help deliver cheaper and cleaner energy and increase the reliability of local grids with no extra cost to consumers.

Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Wire Rod Market

The US was the most-affected country in North America due to the COVID-19 pandemic. In Q2 of 2020, strict regulations imposed by the US government disrupted the supply chain and import & export. The disruption led to the temporary shutdown of manufacturing facilities, and the facilities were operating with minimum staff. Industries such as automotive and manufacturing were negatively affected in 2020. However, as the global supply chain resumed in Q2 of 2021, the market started to rise. The automotive industry, which is one of the largest industries in the US, restarted its operation in Q3 of 2021. Further, in Q1 of 2022, the automobile factories increased their production due to increased demand for different vehicles, particularly electric vehicles. Also, the rising awareness about clean energy in the US, Canada, and Mexico has raised the demand for renewable energy power generation infrastructure, fueling the wire rod market growth.

Besides aforementioned aspects, the semiconductor industry got impacted adversely in the region. The lack of chip has glowed a new spotlight on the US manufacturing. During pandemic, the country realized about the dependency on Asian high-tech manufacturing capabilities and techniques like China, whereas China itself is investing massive amounts on their chipmaking capabilities. Moreover, Taiwan, China, and Malaysia are the largest sources of the US imports and key destinations for the US exports of semiconductors. East and Southeast Asia are vital partners for the US semiconductor trade. According to Intel Corporation, the chip shortage lasted till 2021 and 2022 late will get fade in 2023. There has been a massive gap demand and supply of chip in the country.
