Only Connect: World Wide Top Cable Manufacturers

coinfo-jpg.jpgWelcome to another post in the series by Nick Locke, of Nicab Ltd, who has over 15 years experience in the electronics manufacturing industry specialising in interconnection cable assembly.

Have you ever wondered who the top selling cable manufacturer in the world is?  Well, wonder no more as I have a definitive list of top selling cable manufacturers, and let me tell you I was as surprised as you will be.

Reading through the list makes you realise how much hype manufactures put out and how little it reflects the volume of cable they sell. However, it’s worth noting that some of the manufacturers you will never have heard of. This is because these manufactures are making the cables for well brands.

For example, when you buy a product and it comes with say USB or Audio cables, it’s these little known manufacturers quietly making them in the millions, therefore selling a tonne of cable.

I hope you find this as interesting as I did!
