The Wire and Cable Data Service has a rigorous methodology built by Integer Research, an Argus Media Company, and looks at a number of data sources to gather the information found within the service. Below is an overview of the methodology.
For 1-2 year forecasts, we use short-term indicators, which show historical correlations between wire and cable demand and production, such as:
- Purchasing managers indexes (PMIs)
- Industrial production (IP) indexes
- Industry confidence indexes, such as NEMA’s EBCI survey
- End-use sector indicators, such as construction output
- Wire and cable activity is closely correlated to economic activity — as a country’s wealth and industrial activity rises, so too does the demand for energy and data.
- Integer’s forecasts are market led, driven by macroeconomic indicators, such as GDP, industrial production, fixed investment and electricity demand.
- Integer chooses a weighted forecast index of macroeconomic indicators that reflects the main demand drivers of each product group.
- Production forecasts are based on known expansions, and links to expected changes in demand and trade.
- In order to forecast the future value of the wire and cable market, we take into account the future cost of wire and cable.
- Integer’s value forecasts include a link to forecast copper and aluminium prices, utilising a consensus forecast for future metal prices.
