The new industry research report from Technavio analyzes some of the key drivers and trends responsible for the growth of this market and its sub-segments.

Growth in renewable power generation in India

The commercialization of renewable energy across the country will boost the demand for electric wire and cables in the region. India is slowing adopting modern technology and is on the verge of integrating regional grids to form a nationwide electric grid network to allow a seamless flow of electricity. The country is witnessing an extensive infrastructure development activities for T&D networks. In 2015, it was estimated that India accounts for total renewable energy capacity of over 34 GW and produces around 7% electricity to meet the electricity demand of the country as per MNRE. The Government of India is taking various initiatives to promote the use of sustainable and renewable energy sources in the country.

Expansion and revamping of T&D infrastructure in India

The exponential growth in power generation infrastructure is boosting the demand for power cables in the market. The rapid industrial development and urbanization in the country are boosting the requirement for stable and efficient electricity supply and networks across the region. One of the major factors that are expected to propel the growth of the electric wire and cable market in India is rural electrification. This industry is expected to attract more investment as the government’s goal is to provide electricity to every home by 2020.

Increase in investment in metro railways

The increasing projects initiated for the development of metro railway projects in India is easing congestion in streets. These projects are also generating business opportunities for helping the inadequate public transport system to speed up. Rapid urbanization and growing concern over pollution have increased the investment toward metro rails for urban mass transportation. Such development activities will attract many Indian and foreign companies to take advantage of these huge investment opportunities.
