"Actionable Insights to Fuel Your Growth"
The global low voltage cable market size stood at USD 93.39 billion in 2018 and is projected to reach USD 155.52 billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period.
These cables are the cables which act as the final step in the supply of electricity from the utility. After voltage adjustment in the transformers as per the requirement, these lines run overhead or underground to the end-user. Low voltage cable type includes variations in the materials being used for the manufacturing of cables. In most cases, copper and aluminum are the materials considered for their manufacturing. In recent years there has been an exponential rise in electricity consumers over the globe which has driven the low voltage cable installation. New infrastructures, the introduction of renewable like solar and wind, have added boost to the market. Also, the growing demand for energy has led to an increase in petroleum and natural gas industries, mining activities, which has a considerable impact on this market.

Adoption of Renewable Resources for Power Generation Drives Low Voltage Cable Market
In recent years, the rising population has surged the demand for power across the globe. This has brought in renewable sources for energy production to suffice the power demand. The adoption of renewable energy leads to the lying of new transmission and distribution lines from utility to end-users. Also, setting up rooftop solar panels to satisfy the electricity demand of a single house requires the setting of new low voltage lines. These cables support has helped the increased renewable energy adoption, and this trend is set to continue during the forecast period and therefore help the LV cable market to grow at a healthy rate.
Growing Infrastructure Opens Up Doors of Opportunities for LV Cable Market
The growing population and urbanization across various regions have led to the construction of new residential buildings and commercial offices. These new constructions certainly require a smooth supply of electricity and are therefore boosting the low voltage cable market growth. This cable lighting is being preferred in these constructions owing to their safety and economic advantages. Besides this, the renovation work of old constructions being carried out requires replacement of electricity supply networks, which drives LV cable demand.
Introduction and Adoption of Advanced Technologies will AugmentGrowth
With the introduction of new electronics technologies that simplify the working of an organization, the market for these cables has gained pace. For example, the internet services, which are mandatory for any organization to work smoothly, power supply for computers being installed for working, camera surveillance that has become an important factor in terms of security, separate generator set installations, and others. These all, coupled with the Internet of things, have helped this market positively.
Rising Demand for Energy Directly Drives LV cables Market
Apart from being used in residential and commercial applications, low voltage cable are also mandatory in various industrial processes that have equipment working on low voltages. A rising number of small scale industries over the last decade has driven the market. Petroleum industries, natural gas stations, and fueling stations all require LV supply lines. The mining industry requires equipment that works on low voltage, and therefore mining activities also cater to the market growth of these cables.
Volatility in Raw Materials Price and Undue Electricity Losses Can Hinder Market Growth
Low voltage cable require a very high conductivity as they carry the regulated voltage from transformers to the end use sectors. Aluminum and copper being the majorly used metals for cables, any change in the price of these metals has a direct impact on the price of cables per meter, and therefore the global market. Losses during transmission also negatively impact market growth. Additionally, the implementation of low voltage cable roll out programs requires a huge investment to make electricity available at the required location. These factors can hamper the market growth during the given forecast period.
Operational Advantages of Underground Cabling will Surge its Market Growth
Based on the installation, the market of low voltage cable is segmented into overhead and underground. Underground cabling gives the advantage of more safety and good aesthetics as compared to the overhead segment. Also, underground cabling has higher insulation than overhead cables, and therefore there are less chances of any damage. Overhead cables segment, on the other hand, occupy a major share now, but with a switch from overhead lines to underground lines, this segment will witness a downfall in the coming years. Therefore, the underground segment is estimated to dominate the market during the forecast period.
Up to 240V Will Dominate Market Owing to Major Deployment in Residential Sector
Based on voltage, the market of low voltage cable is segmented into up to 240V, 241V-440V, and 441V-1000V. Among these, up to 240V currently dominates the market, and this trend is set to continue over the forecast period as this is the sufficient voltage required for the residential sector. Using this voltage range, most of the appliances and electrical equipment operate easily, and therefore this voltage level is sufficient for any of the residential buildings to operate. Also, with new low voltage appliances being introduced for household applications, the segment is expected to grow significantly in the coming years.
