Low Voltage Cable Market

Low voltage cables are majorly used in commercial, residential and industrial applications such as lighting, sound, and security, fire alarms, etc. The rising energy demand and growing smart grid distribution network are expected to have a significant impact on the low voltage cable market. In 2017, the global energy demand grew by 2.1%, which is more than twice the previous year’s rate. The power sector is witnessing an energy transition owing to the rising concerns about increasing carbon emissions and greenhouse gases. By 2020, 12% of the global demand for electricity is expected to be produced from wind. Such a transition is expected to drive the demand for low voltage cable market during the forecast period.

Rising Demand for Smart Grids Driving the Market

Low voltage distribution networks supporting the smart grids provide a higher quality of electricity supplies, better service of electricity for end consumers, and a cost-effective solution with respect to the concept of total cost of ownership. The global power sector is undergoing a rapid transformation as the countries face steep electricity demand growth rates and plan to incorporate large-scale renewable resources. Smart grids are becoming an important part of the configuration of the upcoming power systems.  In 2017, China topped the list in investments in smart grid technologies accounting for USD 3.34 billion followed by Europe (USD 2.3 billion) and the United States (USD 2.12 billion). India has launched National Smart Grid Mission, under which it aims to invest USD 44.9 billion over the period 2017-2027.

Asia-Pacific is one of the Largest Low Voltage Cable Market

Asia-Pacific has emerged as one of the major low voltage cable markets in the recent years. The rise in energy demand associated with urbanization, economic modernization, and better living standards across the region has resulted in the growth of sustainable power systems, which in turn increased the demand for low voltage cable market in this region. Asia-Pacific's increasing investments in T&D networks and smart grid infrastructure is expected to increase the demand for low voltage cables. Countries such as China, Japan, and India are expected to be the fastest growing markets owing to their energy transition and smart grid infrastructure plans in the coming years. In 2017, China invested around USD 3.34 billion in the smart distribution networks followed by Japan (USD 0.48 billion) and India (USD 0.41 billion). China has installed nearly half of all new capacity in 2017 and continues to lead the global capacity additions in solar and wind.  Increasing installation capacities of solar and wind energy in this region are expected to boost the demand for low voltage cables during the forecast period.

Renewables Sector is a Huge Market Potential

In 2017, the global renewable energy capacity grew by 163 GW and reached 2,179 GW worldwide, representing yearly growth of 8.3%. In the same year, solar photovoltaics grew by 32%, followed by wind energy (10%). This growth was majorly led by cost reductions, with the cost of electricity from solar PV decreasing by 73%, and onshore wind nearly one-quarter, between 2010 and 2017. Along with this, off-grid renewables capacity witnessed unprecedented growth in 2017, with an estimated 6.6 GW serving off-grid customers globally. This represents a 10% growth from the previous year, with nearly 146 million people now using off-grid renewables. Application of the low voltage cables includes powering the vital equipment in the nacelle of a wind turbine and for controlling and measuring virtually anything in the system. These cables are also used as the interconnections between solar panels and other components of the photovoltaic system.
