Cross-linked polyethylene (XLPE) is a high-quality insulation material with excellent electrical properties. Power cables account for the important component of power networks that are used in transmission and distribution. Thus, cables need huge attention as they are more prone to hazards and accidents. They are typically used in power transmission & distribution. The cables are insulated with a variety of materials such as Polyvinyl chloride, polyethene, polyurethane, nylon, ethylene propylene diene monomer, thermoplastic elastomers, and many others, but XLPE is the best insulating material due to its ability to hold short circuit current capacity. These cables are made, considering the high-quality conscious environment with testing and inspection from raw material to finished cable stage. XLPE cables hold significance in long transmission networks, mainly for 6kV-35kV transmission lines.
The world is focusing on increasing the energy generation from renewable sources, but the electricity generation location is generally very far from the consumption area. Thus, cables are gaining attention to maintain the gap between the renewable energy generation points to the grids. This drives the market for XLPE cables as the transmission losses in XLPE cables are less and this makes the cables appropriate for long distances. Furthermore, the durability of XLPE cables over other insulated cables, drives the global XLPE market. XLPE cables are capable of carrying the current under different temperatures and are able to perform in harsh conditions. For an instance, these cables are best suited for working voltage of 240 V to 500V.
For the purpose of study, global XLPE cable market has been segmented based on installations, voltage, end-user, and region. Based on installation, the market has been segmented into overhead, underground, and submarine. Among them, underground segment accounts for the largest market size due to their high efficiency and low exposure to accidents.
