The COVID- 19 has hindered the overall industry operations as the first and second waves of the pandemic resulted in critical lockdowns, ceased production facilities and disruption in supply chain networks. However, introduction of numerous vaccinations drives and upliftment of several strict measures for global movement has led to the industry operations back to normal. In addition, the surge to provide electricity despite of pandemic impact, majority of sustainable powered projects were deployed as per the schedule and have not witnessed any delay.

Capital expenditure in high-capacity manufacturing facilities

The > 33 kV distribution lines segment holds a marginal share of the overall distribution lines and poles market. The high voltage distribution system is explicitly utilized by energy-intensive industries including metal processing, bulk chemicals, and petroleum refining. The industry growth is attributed to intensive capital investments in the development of high-capacity manufacturing facilities to achieve economies of scale.

Ongoing government initiatives for the development of commercial and industrial sectors

The primary distribution lines segment valued at around USD 1 billion in 2021. Rising government attention toward the development of commercial and industrial sectors has led to a faster acceleration rate of primary consumers, which, in turn, will propel the industry dynamics. For instance, in 2019, the Government of India instituted a National Policy on Electronics (NPE) to achieve a turnover of USD 400 billion in domestic electronics manufacturing by 2025. The government also aims to position the country as a hub for Electronics System Design and Manufacturing (ESDM).

Ongoing rural electrification programs across developing economies

The open wire product segment in the distribution lines and poles market is estimated to attain a 5% growth rate till 2030. Some of the key parameters including low maintenance, easy installation, and reduced capital cost will augment the product demand. Additionally, continuing electrification programs in rural areas across developing countries will further enhance the product installation. The development of new distribution networks across remote areas coupled with refurbishment of prevailing networks has instituted a favorable business outlook.

The distribution lines and poles market for manufacturing sector held a major share in the GDP of any economy. For instance, in 2021, industries including construction, manufacturing, mining & utilities accounted for 39.4% of China's GDP, an increase of 1.6% compared to 37.8% in 2020. Furthermore, railways all over the world are shifting toward electrified lines, which require a massive quantity of power at primary voltage levels, thereby integrating opportunities for conductor & support infrastructure market players.

Favorable government policies toward the expansion of distribution networks

The wood distribution poles market is set to register a significant growth during the forecast period owing to easy availability, simple manufacturing process, and initial cost associated with the product. Moreover, enduring developments in the fast wood forestry technique in line with favorable government policies will drive the business expansion.

The distribution lines and poles market for steel segment is anticipated to exceed an annual installation of over 28 million units by 2030. The major factors including standard quality, high strength, lightweight, and long service life will boost the product deployment. Additionally, other key parameters including easy recyclability, reduced terrestrial biome disturbance, uniform dimensions, and lower lifecycle costs will enhance the product adoption.

Rapid expansion of distribution lines across remote areas

The distribution poles market is expected to witness substantial gains during the forecast timeframe due to the replacement and refurbishment of existing electrical distribution infrastructures. The height of a distribution pole plays a vital role in characterizing the line voltage and current as the requirement of a higher voltage needs higher clearance, thus requiring a higher pole length. The span or distance between poles is one of the crucial parameters in the determination of its length, keeping into account the expansion and contraction of lines with a temperature change. < 10-meter poles are primarily utilized to support low-voltage distribution lines, typically up to 11 kV. The rapid expansion of the residential sector has led to a significant increase in demand for low-voltage electricity networks.
