The North America high voltage cable market accounted for US$ 5.09 Bn in 2018 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.3% over the forecast period 2019–2027, to account for US$ 7.92 Bn in 2027.
The major factors that drive the growth of the high voltage cable market are includes, growth of offshore wind farms and modern grid infrastructure in order to increase the electrification rate across the developing nations. On the other hand, the volatile metal prices of copper and aluminum limit the growth of the market. A rising demand of electricity across North American market is expected to encourage these regions to enhance their grid infrastructure, which is a key factor for the growth of the high voltage cable market. Additionally, increasing industrialization and economic developments in North American countries supports the growth of electricity at an impressive pace. The shale industry endures to be a driving factor for the US energy policy, shifting gears from energy scarcity to abundance of energy sources. The power sector is one of the most promising sectors, especially in developing and underdeveloped regions, as it attracts more investments than any other mass sector, such as oil & gas. Booming energy and oil & gas sector plays a major role in boosting the growth of high voltage cable market.
The high voltage cable market is fragmented in nature due to the presence of several industries, and the competitive dynamics in the market is anticipated to change during the coming years. In addition to this, various initiatives are undertaken by governmental bodies to accelerate the high voltage cable market further. The government of this country spends a significant amount on electricity to fulfill the rising demand from consumers and industries.
