Surging electricity demand on account of rapid increase in the population will drive the global distribution lines and poles market growth. In addition, growing efforts by policy makers to electrify remote areas of their respective nations will boost the industry growth in coming years. For instance, in November 2018, African Development Bank (AfDB) approved a fund of USD 200 million to finance the Nigeria Electrification Project (NEP) for rural electrification.

Rising investments to revamp aging power supply infrastructure will expand the distribution lines and poles market size. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, over 60% of power delivery poles in the country were installed in between 1940 to 1970 which require refurbishment. Furthermore, growing integration of renewable energy sources into the grid will necessitate additional supply infrastructure, thus positively impacting the business growth.

Distribution Lines And Poles Market, By Voltage

The ≤11 kV distribution lines market size is anticipated to grow over 4% by 2025. Growing penetration of residential consumers driven by rapid increase in population will stimulate the demand for LV connections, which in turn will propel the industry growth. For instance, number of residential consumers for the Australia based utility company Energex has witnessed a growth of nearly 8% between 2014 and 2018.

The 11-33 kV distribution lines and poles market will witness growth on account of ongoing investments toward development of commercial centers. According to the Brazilian Association of Shopping Centers, number of shopping malls in the country has reached to 563 in 2019, witnessing a growth of over 43% from 2009. Moreover, growing need for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) equipment will further accelerate the deployment of these products.

Distribution Lines And Poles Market, By Application

Primary distribution lines market size, in 2018 was valued over USD 25 billion. Growing legislative focus toward industrialization and commercialization has led to a rapid escalation in number of primary consumers, which in turn will drive the industry growth. In 2018, the Government of India has introduced the draft National Policy on Electronics (NPE) envisaging creation of a USD 400 billion electronics manufacturing industry in the country by 2025

Secondary distribution lines market will grow on account of rising population in addition to the government efforts to achieve maximum electrification. For instance, the Government of Tanzania has introduced Sustainable Development Goal-7 to ensure affordable and sustainable electricity access to most of its population by 2030. Additionally, growing inadequacy of aging grid infrastructure along with increasing consumer requirements will further drive the industry growth.

Distribution Lines And Poles Market, By Product

Open wire distribution lines market size is anticipated to expand over 2.5 % by 2025.
