The overall submarine power cable market is estimated to grow from USD 8.12 Billion in 2018 to USD 16.56 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 15.32%. The submarine power cable market is driven by factors such as new capacity additions in the offshore wind industry and increasing demand for inter-country & island connections. Growth in demand from the offshore oil & gas sector is expected to boost the demand for submarine power cables. The increasing demand for HVDC connections presents a great opportunity for the submarine power cable market because of significant investments being made in it.

The report segments the submarine power cable market, by type, into single core and multicore cables. The single core segment is estimated to lead the submarine power cable market in 2018. The single core segment is also projected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period as it results in easier and more economical deployment. In Europe, the demand for single core submarine power cables is from the offshore wind sector. This is likely to boost the overall single core submarine power cable market.

Based on end-user, the offshore wind power generation segment accounted for the largest market size in 2017. The submarine power export cables play a vital role in connecting the offshore wind farms to the mainland. Additionally, inter-array submarine power cables are used to connect offshore wind turbines to the offshore substation and to connect adjacent offshore turbines. Technology advancements and falling offshore wind cost are expected to drive the offshore wind power generation segment of the submarine power cable market by end user.

The submarine power cable market has been analyzed on the basis of 5 regions: Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. The market in Europe is expected to lead the global submarine power cable market by 2023. The market size in this region can be attributed to the booming offshore wind industry, of which submarine power cables are major components.  UK and Germany are the key markets for submarine power cables in Europe. The growing demand for inter-country connections coupled with demand from offshore oil & gas sector is expected to drive the market in Europe.

Submarine Power Cable Market

The high cost of installation and complexity in the repair of deepwater cable links have adversely affected the demand for submarine power cables. Any fault or repair in submarine power cables imposes a significant amount of cost to be spent toward the repair and re-deployment process. Thus, repairing any fault to such critical infrastructure poses physical and monetary challenges.

Key players in the submarine power cable market include Prysmian (Italy), Nexans (France), NKT (Denmark), General Cable (US), and Sumitomo (Japan). Contracts & Agreements was the most commonly adopted strategy by the top players in the market from 2015 to 2018 (April). It was followed by investments & expansions, collaborations & partnerships, and product launches.
