According to a new report published by Allied Market Research, titled, "World High-Voltage Cable Market by Type and End User - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2014 - 2022," the global high-voltage cable (HVC) market is expected to garner $47.1 billion by 2022, growing at a CAGR of 6.7% from 2016 to 2022.
Summary of the High-Voltage Cable Market Report can be accessed on the website at https://www.alliedmarketresearch.com/high-voltage-cable-market
HVCs operate at a voltage greater than 66KV, and are used for electric power transmission and distribution over long distance with minimum power loss. The HVC market is largely driven by increase in investments in renewable energy projects and growth in urbanization, industrialization, and infrastructure in developing countries such as India, China, and Brazil.
HVCs are segmented into three types, which include overhead, underground, and submarine. The underground HVC segment holds a significant revenue share in the world HVC market, owing to the applications of these cables in various industries such as power utilities, mining, paper & pulp, and cement industry among others. However, submarine cables are expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period, with a CAGR over 8%. The growth would be driven by their applications in offshore power projects and oil & gas industry and their various competitive advantages over other cables such as presence of extra shield, armour, and protection & bedding.
Among the end user segment, industrial segment held the highest revenue share in 2015, owing to growing energy demand in industries such as oil & gas, mining, power utilities, and chemicals among others. Renewable energy segment also contributed a significant revenue share of over 36% in the overall market in 2015. However, infrastructure segment is expected to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period due to increase in urbanization in developing countries such as China and India.
According to Bhawna Kohli, Manager Research at AMR, "Proliferating infrastructure projects, growing industrialization and expanding power production capabilities of developing nations is expected to navigate the demand of HVCs. Underground cables are extensively used as they inculcate the properties of enhanced safety, reduced land consumption and abridged radio interference. Further, recently discovered river basins and expanding offshore power projects in developing countries have fostered the demand of submarine cables. These superior properties and broadening applications of both the cables have collectively contributed in the growth of overall HVC market".
