Electrical conductors are the materials that conduct electricity. An electrical conductor are a substance which carries electrical charge, especially electrons which travels easily from atom to atom with the help of voltage. The capacity to transmit heat or electricity is conductivity. Electrical conductors are used in transformers, busbars, and power cables. Electrical conductors form an essential component in the power industry and is responsible for the transmission and distribution of the electric power. A metal wire is commonly used as a form of electrical conductor.
Electrical conductors are segmented based on its types, applications, and region. Based on its types, electrical conductors are fragmented as AAC (All Aluminum Conductor), AAAC (All Aluminum Alloy Conductor), ACSR (Aluminum Conductor Steel Reinforced), and ACAR (Aluminum Conductor Aluminum Alloy Reinforced). (AAC) is made up of one or more strands of hard drawn aluminum alloy. These conductors are used in low, medium and high voltage overhead lines. (AAAC) are made out of high strength aluminium-magnesium-silicon alloy. (ACSR) is concentrically stranded conductor with one or more layers of hard drawn aluminium wire on galvanized steel wire core. (ACAR) is formed by concentrically stranded wires of aluminium combined with high strength aluminium -magnesium –silicon (AlMgSi) alloy core. Applications of electrical conductors are used by the power cables, transformer, busbars, and submarine power cables.
Opportunities of electrical conductors market are the rising popularity for producing green products a major trend in the electrical conductors market. Electrical conductors and manufacturers are increasingly focus on developing wires and cables that have a less detrimental impact on the environment. The excellent corrosion resistance of aluminium has made AAC a conductor of choice in coastal areas. AAAC finds wide acceptance in the distribution and also in the medium & high voltage transmission lines.
Restrains of electrical conductors market are AAC finds its limited use in transmission lines and rural distribution because of long spans utilized. Electrical conductors possess low electric resistivity. New technological advancements are emerging in order to reduce manufacturing costs of electrical conductors.
In terms of geography, North America is the demanding market for the potential growth of electrical conductors. Use of electrical conductors is high due to the U.S. government to refurbish its infrastructural plans and producing eco-friendly energy distribution and transmission control systems. Countries in Asia Pacific such as India, China, and Japan are heavily investing in developing electrical conductors of environmental friendly and halogen-free insulation. Several end-users are replacing their old equipment such as transmission and distribution transformers, power cables, circuit-breakers, switchgears, and with technically advanced transmission and distribution equipment to revamp their existing transmission networks, thus increasing the demand for electrical conductors. Countries in Europe such as Germany, France, Sweden, and the U.K. are focusing on increasing their infrastructure investments for the development of renewable energy projects. It would ultimately create the need to connect renewable energy sources to the grid network, which will demand the usage of electrical conductors due to their properties such as low transmission loss. Countries in Middle East and Africa are anticipated for the growth of electrical conductors market in the near future. Countries such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, and Qatar have heavily invested in electrical conductors for developing infrastructure.
Key players operating in the electric conductors market include, General Cable, Nexans, 3M, Midal Cables, Apar Industries, CTC Global, and Sterlite Technologies.
