Automotive wires have used the transmission of electrical signals within various components and systems. They are designed to resist grease, acids, oil, water, fungus, and solvents. In automotive, the wire is generally assembled into harnesses that are used for various automotive applications.  They are a package of loose wires assembled together into a single coverage for a more systematized system. These are used for signal transmission and powering up of different electrical and electronic devices. They are also used in electrical circuits and are designed to operate in extreme heating conditions effectively. There are different types of automotive wires which are used for various applications such as GPT or Primary Wire, 1015 Hook-Up or Motor Wire, SXL Wire, Speaker Wire, Battery Cable, Trailer Wire.

The growing consumer preferences for autonomous mobility solutions have increased the complexity in the wiring harness for the automobiles. Additionally, the introduction of electric vehicles has brought rapid changes in the electronics of vehicles which in turn will result in massive changes in automotive cabling. Moreover, increasing demand for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) in vehicles and consumer preference for electric mobility is further fueling demand from the industry. Installing connectivity systems for simplified and easy connection of electrical components in cars will further support growth in the industry. However, the design of these wires requires a special set of insulators and conductors with high resistance and durability which is expensive. As a result, the high development cost involved in constructing advanced automotive wires is hindering the growth of the global automotive wire market.

The automotive wire market has been segmented on the basis of type and application and regions. In, the type segment, copper core, and aluminum core types are majorly considered. The application is bifurcated into the body, chassis and safety, engine, HVAC, and sensors. Copper core wire holds the major market share owing to its various advantages such as higher conductivity, ductile, and high tensile strength. The chassis and safety application segment dominates the automotive wire market as there is a rise in the production of passenger cars. It involves complex installations in the instrument panel of passenger cars. This factor drives the demand for chassis harness. Moreover, the government initiatives towards zero-emission vehicles are boosting the demand for electric vehicles and designing these vehicles will create demand for automotive wires. Certain factor indicates that automotive wire market has huge potential to grow over the forecast period.

The automotive wire market is segmented based on type and application.  On the basis of type segmentation, the market is classified into copper core and aluminum core amongst others. In terms of application segmentation, the market is bifurcated into the body, chassis and safety, engine, HVAC, and sensors.
