Electrical insulation papers are increasingly in demand as pure cellulose has excellent electrical properties. Cellulose is also polar with a dielectric constant significantly greater than one. As submarine power cables have high voltages, electrical insulation papers are used and highly in demand as in case of any leakage, the paper will swell but not allow water from flowing through the cable. Electric insulation papers are highly in demand chiefly from the transformer and cable industries. These papers are used in applications that demand extra high voltage.
The global electrical insulation paper market is driven by the modernization of transmission and distribution network. The compelling demand for electricity from commercial, industrial, as well as the residential sector is also a key factor augmenting the growth of this market. The increasing investments in installation of transmission lines will also help spur the demand for electric insulation paper in developing nations.
Electric insulation paper demand is also expected to rise on account of the growth in the construction industry. The construction industry is flourishing specially in the developing economies of Asia Pacific. China and India are among the countries in which construction industry is thriving and thus, will prove to be attractive markets for electric insulation paper market in the years to come. Another industry’s success which is proving to be a growth factor for the global electrical insulation paper market is the consumer electronics industry.
Electrical Insulation Paper Market: Overview
Electrical insulation papers are used as an insulator in many electrical and electronic applications due to its low electric conductive properties. Typically, cellulose is employed as an insulating material due to its excellent insulation properties. Previously, materials such as wood, rubber, and cotton were utilized as electrical insulators. Electrical insulating papers have high mechanical strength, reduced size, and improved resistance properties. The usage of high purity chemical in manufacturing makes them perfect for insulating electrical machines. Presently, these papers are witnessing an increased usage due to the increasing demand for effective insulating products.
