Based on product, the control cable segment was worth more than USD 2.7 billion in 2022. Control cables, typically low-voltage cables, find extensive use in the building and construction industry for energy distribution and signal transmission. The introduction of IoT in industrial operations has contributed to a twofold growth in the demand for these cables. In the years ahead, the increasing adoption of smart technologies in industrial and utility applications is poised to further drive the global for these cables.
Based on voltage, the high-voltage cables, ideally commencing from 33 kV, have experienced significant growth in recent years, driven by an increasing need for bulk electricity transmission over extended distances. The market demand has been further elevated by substantial investments in the development of offshore energy generation projects over the past five years. Key players such as Nexans and General Cable are actively competing to advance high-capacity cables tailored for offshore projects. Anticipated growth in the adoption of HVDC transmission systems by multiple countries is expected to further boost the demand for high-voltage cables.|
