The Global High Voltage Cables Market size is expected to reach $45.9 billion by 2026, rising at a market growth of 5.6% CAGR during the forecast period. The market for high-voltage power cables largely depends on the world's electricity demand. Increased demand for electricity is also expected to provide the industry with lucrative growth opportunities. The replacement of old grid networks and transmission lines is another factor that drives the growth of the sector. However, the growing penetration of renewable energy sources, such as solar energy and wind energy, involves the construction of new power grids and new transmission and distribution networks. As a result, the growing penetration of renewables serves as a demand driver for high voltage cables.
Global High Voltage Cables Market Size
High voltage cables are cables used for the transmission and delivery of high voltage power. High voltage cables are fitted with structural components of one or more conductors, protective jackets and insulators. The key structural distinction between high voltage cables and other types of cables is the presence of additional internal layers in the insulation jacket, which helps to regulate the electrical flow around the conductor. It helps to minimize power losses during long-range transmissions and, as a result, high-voltage cables are found to be more effective than other types of power transmission cables. High voltage cables may be used as overhead cables, underground cables in factories, and underwater cables for power transmission between states and countries.
High Voltage Cables Market Share
Rising electricity demand with a growing population is one of the main reasons responsible for the introduction of smart grid technologies and the need for reliable power transmission systems. Regions such as the Middle East, Asia Pacific and South America have seen growing investment in smart grids. Densely populated areas need power grid interconnections, increasing competition for submarine and underground cables. Regions such as North America and Europe have begun to introduce underground installations for HV cables as well as submarine installations for inter-region/country communication.
Based on Installation Type, the market is segmented into Overhead, Submarine and Underground. Based on End User, the market is segmented into Energy & Power, IT & Telecom, Aerospace & Defense, Oil & Gas, Building & Construction and Others. Based on Regions, the market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, and Latin America, Middle East & Africa.
