Overview of Report:

As India falls under the category of developing nations, the demand for electricity to support economic growth is on a continuous rise. There is a need for substantial growth in the transmission sector to support the growing load and to provide connectivity to generation projects. India has emerged as the second-largest transmission market after China. India contributes over 15% of the global transmission tower market. According to CII, Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision of a 5 trillion-dollar economy will require an estimated investment of Rs 5 lakh crore in the transmission sector over the next few years. India will be consuming 1.8 trillion units by 2025 as India's growth trajectory accelerates, and this requires large investments in the transmission sector, particularly at the state level.

In the recent past, India increased its focus on the transmission sector. Due to this, the transmission sector has witnessed significant growth. The transmission line length (at 220kV and above voltages) in the country stood at 425,770 ckt. km as of May 2020, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% between 2014 and 2020. Of this, 54.1% is owned by the state sector and 38.4% by the central sector. The remaining 7.5% is held by the private sector, which has grown from 4.5% in 2013-14. Transmission towers are an integral part of a transmission network that works as the main supporting unit of overhead transmission lines used to carry high voltage AC and DC systems and keeping them at a safe height above the ground. Growing investments towards building a viable electricity network and supporting regulatory reforms to integrate renewable technologies in the grid will fuel the market.

The Government of India's focus to strengthen the power T&D system opens up ample opportunities for the towers market. The government has anticipated an investment plan of Rs 2.6 lakh crore in the transmission sector during the financial year 2017- 22, of which an estimated Rs 1.3 lakh crore has been allocated for intra-state transmission capacity. The government is focusing on railway electrification, providing last-mile connectivity, and electrifying villages. These can accomplish the set target for the sector. As per the National Infrastructure Pipeline, a CAPEX of Rs. 3040 billion is expected in the transmission segment from 2020 to 2025. The state sector would account for a major share in the total CAPEX followed by Powergrid and the private sector. There is a strong pipeline of transmission projects at over 86,000 CKT-KM of lines and 315 GVA of substation capacity under development.

The anticipated growth for the transmission sector is driven by a greater emphasis on grid reliability and the spread of new load centers arising from urbanization and rural electrification. Further, the renewable sector would generate raw potential and demand for the transmission sector in the coming years. The growth of the transmission tower market is directly proportionate to the growth of transmission lines. Thus, the rising demand for electricity, the need for replacement of aging infrastructure, and the installation of new transmission and distribution infrastructure are expected to drive the growth of the transmission line and tower market.
