Global Power Cables Market to Grow at 6.26% During 2022-2027, Impelled by Increasing Installation of Smart Grids

Published on Aug 06, 2020

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Power Cables Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027," the global power cables market reached a value of US$ 156.3 Billion in 2021. Power cables are electrical cables that are widely used for transmission and distribution of electrical energy. The three main components of these cables include the conductor, dielectric, and sheath. The inner and outer sheaths are made from polyvinyl chloride coatings that do not allow moisture to seep through. This aids in protecting power cables against mechanical, thermal and environmental conditions and external influences, such as fire, chemicals or electrochemical attacks. These cables offer long-term reliability while providing excellent insulation and current conductivity. They are installed for the transmission of extra high voltages where overhead lines are impractical to employ. They are also used as permanent wiring within buildings, for transmission purposes in submarines and for utility distribution networks in underground cabling.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Power Cables Market Trends:

The market is primarily driven by the increasing demand for renewable power plants on the global level. Governments of numerous countries are encouraging the utilization of clean energy in an effort to promote sustainable development. This, in turn, has led to the development of new power plants, thereby facilitating the uptake of power cables. Moreover, high voltage power cables form an essential component of the interconnector and offshore wind projects for transferring large volumes of power. Also, there has been a rising requirement for the installation of smart grids across the globe. Supported by the ever-increasing demand for uninterrupted power supply across the residential, commercial and industrial segments, this is providing a thrust to the market growth. Furthermore, technological advancements in material sciences have resulted in the development of improved synthetic insulating compounds that are manufactured using thermoplastic, thermosetting and fluorocarbon materials. These superior materials are suitable for the production of power cables with exceptional resilience and improved efficiency. Furthermore, the rising demand for ultra-high voltage networks in the manufacturing sector is acting as another major growth-inducing factor. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 6.26% during 2022-2027.
