Cable Fault Locator Market worth over $1bn by 2027

  • Published Date: September 28, 2021

Cable Fault Locator Market size is set to surpass USD 1 billion by 2027, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The market growth is attributed to the growing demand for underground cables across the globe. The growing demand for electricity across the globe is propelling the demand for high and medium-voltage cables. The increasing demand for power across industries in urban areas is anticipated to increase the demand for underground cable systems. These power cables are laid underground to provide power over longer distances. They must sustain in the harsh underground environment. The market expansion is credited to the aging underground cable infrastructure. The cable fault locators help in detecting the faults in underground cables.

Growing popularity of time-domain reflectometer due to its strong capabilities to operate for long-distance cable fault operations is supporting the market progression

Time-domain reflectometer is expected to witness 10% growth rate through 2027 as a result of its lightness and portability. The time-domain reflectometer is quite popular across the low voltage cable operations for fault detection. The time-domain reflectometer is used for detecting faults in the transmission lines. It sends the low-voltage pulsed signal through the transmission lines and checks for the reflections arising owing to the impedance mismatch. The device can be used for testing a very long underground cable, where it is impractical to dig out the cable for testing.

Increasing adoption of portable segments across the energy and utility sector is fueling the segment growth

The portable cable fault locator segment dominated more than 60% of revenue share in 2020 led by the growing demand for fault locators across high voltage industrial applications. The portable cable fault locator equipment is heavy as compared to the handheld equipment. This type of cable fault locator is used for pre-locating and pinpointing cable faults. The portable fault locators are designed to provide quick, effective, accurate, and safe fault locations; thereby, reducing system outages and minutes lost. The instrument comes in a rugged yet portable enclosure.
