Xlpe Cable Market Overview


XLPE Cable Market to grow at a rate of 7% during the forecast period 2022-2030.


For thermoset insulation material, XLPE cables are used. While maintaining the electrical properties, cross-linking the PE to form XLPE increases the insulation's temperature range.


Generally, in 600V to 155kV transmission lines, these XLPE cables are used. These days, these XLPE cables are in 6kV-35kV transmission lines, which primary function is power transmission.


The global stakeholders have been focusing on raising the share of renewable energy sources in the total power generation mix as the stakeholders in the power generation industry seek opportunities to reduce their carbon footprint. For electricity generation, renewable energy sources like wind, solar, and hydel are used. Without any polluting emissions, renewable energy sources such as emit harmful gases and wastes, coal, and natural gas are generating electricity.


Moreover, to increase the generation capacity of renewable energy generation sources to increase the share of renewable energy in the power generation mix, many countries worldwide, such as Germany, Saudi Arabia, the US, India, and the UAE, have set targets. In 2017, in the country’s total energy mix, the UAE government launched Energy Strategy 2050 to increase renewable energy share to 50% by the end of the year 2050. By 2040, offshore wind energy is predicted to attract an investment of around USD 1 trillion, according to the International Energy Agency (IEA). Many countries like France, China, and the US are focusing on the power generation mix to increase offshore wind energy share. By 2040, the installation capacity of offshore wind energy is expected to reach 110 GW in China, according to the IEA. Therefore, the supply of electricity in the oil & gas and power industries is predicted to increase XLPE cables.
