CHAPTER 1 - ALL CABLE - ELECTRICAL CONDUCTORS AND MECHANICAL ROPE

Wires and cables perform two basic functions. 1) They conduct electricity or communications, for which they need high conductivity, or 2) They carry loads, for which they need high tensile strength. Sometimes they combine both requirements. This report surveys the marker for the first group, electricity and communications conductors, and contains a brief review of the second group, mechanical wire rope. The report excludes products from either group in the informal sector, small producers of low-end wire and cable, mainly based in China and India.

CHAPTER 2 - GLOBAL MARKET SIZE AND END USE - ENERGY WIRE AND CABLE AND TELECOMS

Metallic wire and cable production and consumption are sized in 2017 and forecast to 2022. For metallic cable, material prices are plotted from 2000 to 2017, and charted against tonnage production, $/ton of cable produced and $ sales revenue, to establish commodity price predictors. Fibre optic sales are plotted against prices.

CHAPTER 12 - THE TYPES AND TECHNOLOGIES OF EHV AND HV CABLE - OH AND UG

Detailed outlines of the technologies of OHL bare conductors and UGC and subsea insulated cables: high pressure, fluid-filled pipe (HPFF); high-pressure, gas-filled pipe (HPGF, GIL); a self-contained fluid-filled (SCFF, MI); solid cable, cross-linked polyethene (EPR, XLPE).

CHAPTER 13 - THE TECHNOLOGY OF SINGLE AND MULTIMODE FIBRE OPTIC

The composition of a fibre optic cable and the difference between multi-mode and single-mode fibre.

CHAPTER 14 - WIRE ROPE

Wire rope is used for its mechanical properties, not conductivity, although there are conductors with high tensile strength, especially copper alloys. Wire rope is not a primary focus of this report, which is concerned with energy and telecoms wire and cable. This chapter has a short survey of the wire rope market, including a market size estimate and a review of global manufacturers.

CHAPTER 15- LONG TERM PROSPECTS AND PROFITABILITY OF CONDUCTORS

The most profitable segments of the wire and cable market are those with the best prospects of long term growth but they are not the largest. This chapter reviews the most profitable segments and plots them against long-term growth prospects.

CHAPTER 16 - ENERGY AND COMMUNICATIONS CABLE MANUFACTURERS

A chart of the top 56 companies which account for 54% of the global market is included, ordered by % share. The industry leaders in the United States, Europe and Japan are reviewed and tabulated with their market shares by product segment.

CHAPTER 17 - PROFILES OF WIRE AND CABLE MANUFACTURERS

Profiles of the 29 leading cable companies globally.

CHAPTER 18 - WIRE AND CABLE MARKET DRIVERS

The final uses of wires and cables are so diverse that there are many drivers of demand. In this report, the publisher comments on the following categories:

  • Transmission and distribution for electrical supply - Insulated cables and bare conductors
  • Railways - Insulated cables and bare conductors for dedicated T&D systems
  • Telecoms - LV and telecoms cables
  • Automotive sector - LV cable and wire harnesses
  • Offshore OGT (oil, gas produces) and wind power sectors - EHV, HV and MV submarine cables and MV and LV topside wires and cables
  • Construction - HV, MV and LV insulated cable

CHAPTER 19 - PRICE TRENDS AND FACTORS DRIVING PRICES

The prices of electrical equipment and cable have been volatile over the years. Many factors have contributed to this, the principal factors being; commodity prices for metallic cable, level of demand for cable, cable production capacity both for metallic cable and fibre optic, the learning rate for new technologies. The publisher reviews each of these factors in this chapter and presents conclusions for the cable market.

CHAPTER 20 - INSULATED LAND CABLES - HV, MV & LV

Insulated underground land cables are not the most profitable segment of the power cable market nor the one with the highest long-term growth prospects but together with bare conductors, they have the most stable demand. This chapter contains a series of tables analysing the extent of underground lines by country. The drivers for undergrounding, together with advantages and problems are discussed.

CHAPTER 21 - SUBSEA ENERGY CABLES

The offshore market requires three categories of cable and this applies to oil, gas and wind. The difference between the offshore dry tree and subsea wet tree industry is explained, with the state of the subsea market and future demand. SURF is outlined in detail. HVDC is discussed. 

The subsea energy markets consist of three main categories:

1. Interconnections between land masses
2. Offshore wind power
3. Oil & gas exploration and production.

These markets require three categories of cable.

Interconnections and offshore wind power
1. Subsea power cable -cable used underwater to carry power or control functions - export and transmission cable EHV, and HV - array cable HV and MV. Oil & gas exploration and production
2. Umbilical cable - cable that is usually a mixture of hydraulic pipes and electrical elements and may also contain risers and flow lines - MV, trending to HV.
3. Topside cable - cable used on the platform structure - MV and LV. 

Subsea cables are a premium growth market. The technical barriers to entry are high and order backlogs are solid. These cables also achieve high margins above the average for the cable industry. There are relatively few manufacturers, which are listed and discussed. The global submarine cable networks are outlined, together with their development, technology and cable laying techniques.

CHAPTER 22 - SUBSEA COMMUNICATIONS NETWORKS

The global communications networks are outlined with development and the technology of submarine cable categories described.

CHAPTER 23 - INDUSTRIAL MARKETS

The transport, aircraft, shipping, automobile, mining, construction, terrestrial wind power, manufacturing and process industries are discussed, together with their requirements for cable and harnesses. As an example, the largest aircraft requires 500 km of cable. The chapter quotes some of these statistics to put these markets into perspective.

CHAPTER 24 - ELECTRIFIED RAILWAYS

Electric railways constitute a specific market for cable with different characteristics from industrial and other end users because of the distance cables travel, over many miles of track and this parallels the transmission and distribution cable market in which cables also cover long distances. The railways pose special mechanical demands on cable, which are outlined, together with railway statistics.

CHAPTER 25 - ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY, SUPERCONDUCTORS

Superconductors are materials that have no resistance to the flow of electricity; they are one of the last great frontiers of scientific discovery. Some materials cooled below a material-specific temperature called ‘critical temperature’ (Tc), undergo a phase transition into the superconducting state. The fundamental value proposition of superconducting wire is the elimination of electrical loss. This chapter outlines the technology, the development and status of the market for HTS superconductors, the opportunities, manufacturers and players. 

CHAPTER 26 - METAL THEFT

Metal theft is a worldwide problem and it seriously affects vulnerable wire and cable installations. There continue to be frequent reports of cable theft, both of power cables and telecom cables, from many parts of the world, with cables being stolen for the scrap value of their metal content, especially copper. The report outlines the problem, the scale and its effects.

CHAPTER 27 - CABLE PROPERTIES

Wire, cable and rope have physical properties which distinguish them from each other and determine their suitability for different applications. They help to determine not only which product type is best for a particular use but more specifically which sub-type will perform best in a particular situation. The physical properties are mechanical and electrical; tensile strength, flexibility or flex ratio, weight, conductivity, cost.
