The global cable management market size was valued at $18.31 billion USD in 2019 and is projected to reach $35.02 USD billion by 2027.
What is cable management? ‘Cable Management’ is pretty self-explanatory, it is the organisation of electrical cables. There are so many reasons why cable management is recommended for organisations and even at home. Let’s go through some of them.
The first and most important reason is safety. If you run a business it’s your responsibility to keep your employees and your customers safe, or even if you are a parent at home it’s your responsibility to keep your kids safe. Cables that are all over the place can lead to fires or sparks or can even be a possible tripping hazard. There have been so many stories in the past where employees or customers have sued the company due to this. One that comes to mind instantly is a retail store in Ireland. A lady who was working at the checkout for 17 years tripped over a cable that was just laying on the floor and hurt her knee. She sued the company and the judges ruled the cables as a ‘hazard for any employee, meaning she won the case and was awarded €94,000 euros , equivalent to $150,000 AUD. Massive price to pay for something that could have easily been avoided!
You’d be lying if you said you have never wasted time having to untangle a cable, whether it being for your computer, laptop charger, TV, or even your earphones. Cable management helps cut down on precious time. For example, let’s think of a workplace that gets their equipment checked regularly. The last thing you want to be doing is wasting valuable time untangling cables, all the time wasted adds up! With cable management in place, the cables will be spaced out and labeled which allows for quicker and easier maintenance and downtime, meaning you can then move on to more important tasks.
What’s better than saving time while also saving money! Cable Management improves the cable’s life and performance. Cables that are let to be tangled, piled up, or just hanging behind the equipment is more likely to get damaged, meaning your may need to keep spending extra dollars for replacement cables.
An obvious reason why cable management is recommended is to keep the work or home environment cleaner. If you don’t have cable management in your house or office right now and your cables are just laid on the floor tangled together, go have a look at all the dust collected under it!
Adding to that, Cable Management makes the environment more representable for your customers and potential business partners. First impressions are important! If a potential business partner walked into a store or office and saw cables all over the place they might get start second-guessing about doing business.
