Bharatbook added a new report on “Power Cables conductors” which gives trends, investment opportunities and the structure of Power Cables conductors market.

Power Cables conductors

· Power cables and conductors is the medium through which electricity is transmitted over long distances from the source (generators) to the destination (end-users). Conductors are wires (without jackets) with high voltage levels typically used in the transmission segment. While cables are an assembly of two or more electrical conductors with insulation typically used in sub-transmission and distribution segments. ( )

· The growth of the power cables and conductors segment depends on the capacity additions in the generation segment; concomitant additions and inter-regional capacity additions in the transmission segment; metering Rajiv Gandhi Gramin Vidyutikaran Yojana (RGGVY) and Accelerated Power Development and Reforms Programme (APDRP) schemes in the distribution segment. The estimated capacity addition in the power sector over the Eleventh Plan is expected to see an increase in the demand for power cables and conductors.

Market size and structure
· The estimated market size of the Indian power cables and conductors segment (including unorganised players) is estimated to be around Rs 120 billion in 2008-09. Around 70 per cent of the industry is organised, while the remaining accounts for the unorganised and regional sector. The installed capacity has increased from 6.5 million ckm in 2002-03 to 7.3 ckm in 2008-09E. Revenues are generated through Power Grid Corporation India Ltd (PGCIL) and State Electricity Boards (SEBs) projects. Private projects are expected to increasingly add to the revenues going ahead, in the Eleventh (2007-08 to 2011-12) and Twelfth Plan (2012-13 to 2016-17).

· The power cables and conductors is a low capital-intensive business. However, it would need continuous short-term funding to meet its working capital requirements. Over 80 per cent of the operating costs come from raw materials. Also, it takes around 3-4 months for power cables and conductor companies to recover their dues from various utilities, their major clients.

Future growth
· It estimates around 66,000 MW to be added during 2009-10P to 2013-14P. Incremental transmission lines are expected to grow at a CAGR of 2 per cent from 2009-10P to 2013-14P. The development of the National Grid for enhancing inter-regional transmission capacity to 37,150 MW by 2012 will fuel the demand for power cables and conductors. Schemes like RGGVY and APDRP will also create further demand for power cables and conductors.
