220-500 KV segment expected to be more lucrative for the global OPGW cable market

The global OPGW cable market is segmented on the basis of application into below 220 KV, 220-500 KV, and above 500 KV. In 2017, the 220-500 KV segment was seen to be a major revenue generating segment. 220-500 KV segment includes the OPGW cables used along with the transmission lines carrying voltages in the range of 220 KV, 345 KV, and 400KV. Transmitting power at these voltage levels results in lower value of current which reduces the losses arising out of skin effect, corona, and impedance and ensures higher transmission efficiency. The 200-500KV segment is expected to expand at a significant CAGR of 5.24% over the forecast period.
