Overhead Conductors Market size worth over $1 Bn by 2032

  • Published Date: December 23, 2022

Overhead Conductors Market size is set to surpass USD 1 billion by 2032, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

Ongoing power grid modernization efforts, such as grid energy storage and smart grid R&D incorporating sophisticated technologies, are expected to positively influence the industry landscape. Additionally, a paradigm shift towards IT integration across the power sector is speculated to foster the implementation of smart grid technology, thereby complementing the business scenario. Furthermore, rising concerns about energy security and grid stability, as well as increased expenditures to construct a sustainable electrical network in response to increasing power demand.

Surging need for better transmission networks to enhance the others segment landscape

Overhead conductors market from the others product segment is slated to witness over 7% growth rate between 2023 and 2032. The ongoing expansion of long-distance transmission lines, as well as the deployment of superconducting cables on account of the increasing demand for improved transmission networks. In addition, prominent measures to modernize the grid infrastructure by installing novel conductors & control technologies are likely to drive the segment outlook.

Increasing deployment of advanced distributed generation technologies

The 132 kV to 220 kV overhead conductors market is anticipated to depict more than 4% CAGR through 2032. The report cites that the implementation of advanced distributed generation technologies, coupled with growing renewable integration, are some major factors promoting segment expansion. Furthermore, the emerging issues of managing and controlling random power outages produced by the proliferating usage of solar power across developed and underdeveloped countries are estimated to stimulate product demand.

Prevalent need for long-distance electrical transmission with minimal loss to favor the ultra-high strength segment

The ultra-high strength segment is predicted to observe 5% gains till 2032. Long-distance overhead conductors need to be extremely strong owing to the product's high thermal resistance, thermal sag, and other sag produced by different load conditions, including ice loading and intense wind. These conductors find extensive usage on account of their ability to bear loads up to 150 kN, enabling efficient long-distance electrical transmission with minimal loss.

Increasing deployment of superconducting cables to boost HVDC segment expansion

HVDC overhead conductors market recorded nearly USD 100 million in 2022. Rising ongoing expansion of long-distance transmission lines, as well as the deployment of superconducting cables, is set to impel segment uptake due to the growing need for upgraded transmission networks. Additionally, the lightweight design, low maintenance & handling costs, and high-power transmission capacity of HVDC are forecast to spur product demand.
