Analysts’  Viewpoint

PCV material segment is gaining momentum in Europe’s wire & cable plastics market, owing to its efficient fire retardant and high protection attributes in a wide range of operating temperatures.

Recycling black plastic waste is proving instrumental for stakeholders in the aerospace industry, since carbon nanotubes made from recycled plastic helps in the production of antennas for 5G networks that prevent incidence of electric shocks in spacecraft. However, recycling cable plastic is an issue in countries such as Russia where recycling facilities are not fully functional. Since recycling all plastic materials is not a feasible option, manufacturers should increase R&D to develop new materials in cable products that can be efficiently recycled.

Wire & Cable Plastics Market: Overview

  • Wire and cable plastics are made of several types of materials such as polyethylene, polyvinyl chloride, and polypropylene. Plastic used in wires and cables serves as a jacketing and insulating material. It protects the underlying cable core from mechanical damage, moisture, and chemicals during installation as well as throughout the service life of the cable.
  • The global electricity demand reached 900 TWh in 2018, an increase of 4% over that in 2010. Renewable energy and nuclear power primarily contributed to this rise in the demand for electricity. Rise in the demand for electricity from residential, industrial, and commercial sectors drives the global wire & cable plastics market.

Key Drivers of Wire & Cable Plastics Market

  • Over the last few years, rise in the demand to provide electricity access primarily in developing and underdeveloped countries/sub-regions such as India, Bangladesh, Kenya, and sub-Saharan Africa has necessitated the expansion of power infrastructure. Thus, rise in the demand to provide electricity access is driving the wire & cable plastics market in these countries.
  • According to Sustainable Development Goal, the global electrification rate rose from 83% in 2010 to 89% in 2017. Moreover, government-initiated electrification programs are attracting investments in the power sector. For instance, the Government of India has introduced ‘Deendayal Upadhyaya Gram Jyoti Yojana for Rural Electrification (DDUGJY-RE). Under the scheme, the Ministry of Power has sanctioned 921 projects to electrify 121,225 un-electrified villages across the country. This, in turn, would propel the wire & cable plastics market in India during the forecast period.
  • Plans to increase access to electricity boost the demand for wire and cable plastics. Wire and cable plastics are employed to ensure safety of persons near the equipment associated with the system that is utilized to transmit power from one place to another.
