Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on Medium Voltage Cable Market

The COVID-19 pandemic is adversely affecting several industries such as energy & power, oil & gas, construction, and manufacturing. Though the complete impact of the pandemic is still unidentified, the impact across the electronics and semiconductor value chain will probably be far-reaching—and strongly affecting parties involved with cable manufacturing. The COVID-19 crisis is underlining the possible risks and vulnerability of the present electronics and semiconductor value chain model and challenging the cable industry to consider altering its global supply chain model. Several cable manufacturers were dependent on Chinese suppliers for raw materials; however, the outbreak shifted their focus to alternate suppliers. Copper is one of the primary raw materials used in cable manufacturing, and there was a drop in its prices. However, at the industry level, the demand for cables was impacted significantly. Reduced fixed investment, private consumption, and industrial activity due to the COVID-19 pandemic have slightly lowered the demand for medium voltage cables globally, particularly in Q1 and Q2 of 2020. The containment measures taken by various governments worldwide are hampering the total demand for every component across the world. In addition, the drop in exports and capital investments is restraining the growth of the medium voltage cable market.

Frequently Asked Questions

Which region led the medium voltage cable market in 2019?

In 2019, APAC led the medium voltage cable market. The oil & gas sector in APAC is likely to witness a rise in mergers and acquisitions in the coming years. The growth in the sector would compel the upstream and downstream activities. The region is also witnessing surge in government investments in the energy & power projects, thus encouraging the proper installation of cables. For instance, Power Transmission and Distribution Efficiency Enhancement Project, Nepal, is anticipated to optimize the reliability and quality of electricity supply in Kathmandu Valley by lowering distribution system overloads, and technical and commercial losses. Besides, mounting power demand in other developing countries in APAC, coupled with the rising investment in the R&D activities, is also likely to boost the medium voltage cable market growth in the region.

Which factor is driving the medium voltage cable market?

With the growth in urban population, there is an increase in investments to meet the challenges concerning need for housing, energy distribution, transportation, and other infrastructure. Moreover, urbanization and industrialization have also resulted in increased demand for basic facilities, such as education and healthcare. To meet these challenges, several governments worldwide have laid down initiatives to meet shortages in the basic infrastructure and housing sector. Since medium voltage cables are vital component of electricity transmission and distribution, the above mentioned factors are anticipated to significantly boost the growth of the market.

Which type led the medium voltage cable market?

The overhead cable and accessories is the leading type in the market. Overhead wires are continuously exposed to open atmosphere. Thus, there are many concerns associated with their safety and reliability. Adverse environmental conditions, such as heavy rain, snow, wind, and humidity as well as salt contents in the atmosphere can deteriorate the lifecycle of these cable systems and raise concerns regarding electrical safety. Yet, these cable systems are less expensive as compared to underground cables and are also easy to maintain owing to clear visibility. Further, the cost of installation is less. These advantages of overhead cable systems coupled with other advantages, such as higher lifespan and smaller size of conductors, are boosting their deployment.
