Global Market for Cables, Insulators and Towers Report and Database 2013-2017
Published: December 9, 2013 Content info: 99 Pages

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.

Highlights from this Market Research

Network Developments

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.

Grid Interconnections

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.
