The Europe high voltage cable market accounted for US$ 8.01 Bn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.4% over the forecast period 2019–2027, to account for US$ 12.49 Bn in 2027.
Growing industrialization, economic development, focus towards power grid are some of the factors responsible to drive the growth of the high voltage cable market. However, there are some factor which might have an adverse impact in the growth of the high voltage cable market. Fluctuation in the pricing structure of copper and aluminum prices, changing customer preferences in developing countries, exchange rates, international trade, changing industrialization trends, and stocks of raw materials. The prices of copper and aluminum vary on a daily basis. The aforesaid factor is a restraining factor which could hamper the market of high voltage cables.
In Europe region, Germany is the leading country which dominates the high voltage cable market. The country has contributed the largest share of ~19.7% of the overall net electricity generation of EU-28, followed by France (17.1%) and the UK (10.3%). According to figures announced by German industry associations—BDEW and ZSW—renewables accounted for 38% of the gross electricity consumption of the country in 2018. Solar PV is the fastest-growing renewable energy source, and wind energy plants remained the largest producer of renewable power. Investments in construction are increasing driven by rising housing market and industries. The growing housing market due to increasing income levels and low rate of interest on the properties is nurturing the growth of the residential sector and eventually the construction industry. Above-mentioned factors are anticipated to accelerate the high voltage cable market.
