By Core

Long route power transfer, minimal transmission losses along with high voltage (HV) power supply are the key factors favouring the deployment of single core submarine power cable market share. Although, high initial cost of installation and poor heat dissipation may hinder the product penetration. However, flexible product specifications, overall operational cost along with ability to endure extreme weather conditions have integrated a favourable business scenario.

Ongoing deployment of offshore wind farms has escalated the demand for multi-core power lines. Moreover, ease of installation on account of effective product specification and short distance power transmission with minimal losses will augment the industry dynamics. Adoption of advance cable laying procedures & technologies and specific regulations for wire burial have further energized the market trends.

By Voltage

Low installation cost along with its large-scale deployment across offshore wind farm establishments have positively swayed the demand for medium voltage cables. Although, they incur high transmission losses and maintenance cost in comparison to HV lines. However, growing dependence on renewable power generation technologies coupled with government reforms & initiatives to create an energy efficient environment will stimulate the overall submarine power cable market demand.

Extra high voltage lines in the recent years have gained significant upsurge owing to the rapid expansion of ultra-high-tension (UHT) transmission lines to endure losses accrued from the long-distance electrical supply. Less utilization of conductor materials, effective long-route transmission of electricity and no sagging losses are the few essential parameters which will fuel the industry demand.

By Conductor

High electrical conductivity and ductility along with non-magnetic properties are some of the key factors positively influencing the product penetration. Copper wires will witness an upsurge on account of properties including ability to bear heavy load surges, corrosion resistant, strength and weight. Moreover, ongoing integration of safe & reliable power transmission systems along with energy efficient equipment will energize the global submarine power cable market share.
