Electricity demand is growing, and demand for cables, insulators and transmission towers is growing with it. However, a variety of distinct development paradigms are at play. While developing countries have primarily seen point-to-point radial distribution instead of intermeshed networks, many developed countries have pursued a policy of putting all urban distribution underground. Policy variations like these can then have knock-on effects. The NRG Expert Global Market for Cables, Insulators and Towers report and database will help you navigate this market sector. It provides detailed data and analysis on annual demand and capital expenditure (capex) for over 180 countries. National grid maps are also included for selected countries.
The database contains important forecast information and current figures on this sector. It consists of a global data set with the following sections:
The Annual Demand section includes 2012 actual figures and forecasts for 2013-2017 in 2012 United States Dollars (USD) for:
The Capex section includes:
Grid composition data is organized by country and each national file includes 2012 actual data and 2013-2017 projections for:
Country files also include national grid maps and international grid interconnections where available.
The accompanying Global Market for Cables, Insulators and Towers Report consists of several sections that provide additional insight into this market and illustrates the meaning and implications of the information in the database. The detailed historical overview discuses the origins of the electrical supply industry, which provides the basis for a discussion of today's market factors and the future of the Cables, Insulators and Towers sector.

Grid stability and reliability have been key drivers in the past years towards new investment and overall spend in the transmission and distribution markets, with fewer major outages occurring in recent years. Despite a strong focus on renewal, especially in Europe, there is also significant expansion of the grid network taking place.
With increasing smart grid technology and new investment, coupled with added generation capacity, grids that were once standalone are becoming increasingly interconnected to one another. There are many technological hurdles to overcome however. With rising energy prices fueling interest, more projects are coming online.
