Maintenance of Subsea Cables to Become Priority as Companies Aim to Minimize Losses

The offshore wind farm industry has garnered considerable attention over the past couple of decades, as it continues to mature steadily. One of the challenges players operating in the offshore wind generation sector is increasingly focusing on addressing is the installation and maintenance of subsea cables– a barrier that has dented several companies financially and caused delays in the completion of several key projects. Market players are increasingly focusing on reducing the damage to offshore wind farms by restricting the mechanical damage to the subsea cable equipment. The increasing need to improve the maintenance process of subsea cables equipment is another factor that is likely to provide a considerable boost to the overall growth of the global subsea cable equipment market.

Demand Likely to Remain Low amid COVID-19 Pandemic

The onset of the novel COVID-19 pandemic is expected to have a short-term impact on the growth of the global subsea cable equipment market. While the industrial sector in China was under stringent lockdown during the first quarter of 2020, delivery and overall supply of raw materials and components required to produce subsea cable equipment were largely affected. In addition, stringent restrictions on cross-border trade and transportation are another factor that led to a steep decline in the demand for subsea cables equipment, especially in the second quarter of 2020. However, as governments in several key regions of the world are gradually lifting the restrictions on trade and transportation, the delayed or stalled offshore projects are likely to resume due to which, the demand for subsea cables equipment is projected to grow in the upcoming months.

Subsea Cable Equipment Market: Overview

  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the global subsea cable equipment market for the historical period 2017–2018 and the forecast period 2020–2030, advanced subsea cable equipment, and increasing inter country and island connections are factors expected to boost the global subsea cable equipment market during the forecast period
  • In terms of revenue, the global subsea cable equipment market is estimated to reach a value of US$ 2.4 Bn by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of ~5% throughout the forecast period

Increasing Advanced Subsea Cables Equipment and Increasing Inter-country and Island Connection: A Key Driver

  • Manufacturers of subsea cables equipment are continuously engaged in the designing of advanced subsea cables equipment
  • For instance, Osbit has developed a new multifunction plough with pre lay and backfill features. This PLP 240 plough offers single pass capability, enabling boulder clearance and pre trenching up to 1.7 m in a single run. This plough also has an additional feature of extensive surveillance for trenching. These new and advanced features in subsea cables equipment are further boosting the growth of the subsea cable equipment market.
  • The major use of subsea cables equipment such as trenchers and ploughs are in inter-country and island connection by cables. Need for subsea cable equipment increases with the rising demand for connection between countries. These equipment help to bury the cables under the seabed.
  • In January 2020, the project of laying submarine cables from Chennai (India) to Andaman & Nicobar Island was flagged off. The project involves laying of around 2,250 km of submarine optical fiber cable.
  • Hong Kong, Singapore, Japan, Vietnam, Guam, and Philippines are connected through TGN - Intra Asia Cables System (TGN-IA). The TGN-IA cable route has been deliberately designed to avoid areas prone to earthquakes and other hazardous areas, such as south and east coast of Taiwan Island. Such inter-country and island connection through subsea cables are expected to contribute to the growth of the subsea cable equipment market.

High Cost of Equipment and Challenges

  • Subsea cable equipment involves high amount of risk, cost, and difficulties in installation of cables. The average weight of the trenchers or the plough weighs around 60 to 80 tons. Thus, it becomes difficult to handle the equipment and suspend it to the seabed.
  • The cost of the equipment includes carrying the equipment from the land to the offshore location via ship or vessels, taking it to the seabed via cranes, and operation of the equipment from the vessel
  • All such processes involves high amount of risk and difficulties. Such parameters restricts the growth of the subsea cable equipment market. Though the impact of these factors is expected to be low during the forecast period, it is still hindering the growth of the subsea cable equipment market.
