Expanding number of offshore wind farms and electrification of offshore oil and gas platforms has led to augmented research activities and tremendous progress has been made in quality of power cables. With the advent of subsea cables, it becomes extremely easy to connect oil platforms to mainland power grids. It also enables timely monitoring and surveillance to reinforce the business development and management of almost all activities in the ocean. Booming energy sector worldwide will immensely propel the revenue graph of submarine power cable industry from the demand of advanced and more reliable subsea cables.

A submarine power cable had been deployed recently between Montenegro and Italy under an investment of EUR 1.15 billion that will allow Montenegro to develop as an energy hub for the Balkan countries. The project has already fetched more than EUR 600 million for local businesses in Montenegro. Such developments would create abundant opportunities for oil & gas companies and other suppliers, attracting significant investments in the energy sector, for renewable sources and digitization. The surge in installation of submarine electrical cables to supply power and emergence of more advanced techniques will thrust global submarine power cable market share.

Over the past decade, novel technologies are being utilized to perform better maintenance and repair of underwater cables for reducing the overall cost of operations in the offshore energy segment. Oil companies are extensively using high-speed fiber networks to vastly enhance their remote field operations, improve field safety records and to take full advantage of real-time information. Operators are rapidly gaining installation expertise in ultra-deep waters and are aiming to advance the array of energy and telecom cables for offshore production. Increasing adoption of such products will considerably influence submarine power cable industry outlook.

LS Cable & System, a Korea-based industrial corporation and cable manufacturer, has inked an agreement in July 2019 worth $100 million worth with Orsted, a state energy firm from Denmark, to build a submarine power grid in Taiwan. The Taiwanese government is planning to invest nearly $23 billion to increase the volume of renewable energy generated in the country, from existing 5% to 20% by 2025. Growing number of submarine power grid projects will substantially impact submarine power cable industry trends.

In terms of geographical trends, European and North American electricity providers are shifting preferences towards integrating more offshore renewable energy sources such as wind and tidal wave installations. Submarine cables will allow the utility companies to transfer larger power flows over great distances with reduced rate of power loss. Deployment of subsea cables to strengthen conventional energy grids could also enhance the connection rate between nearby European offshore wind projects and the U.K. mainland electricity grid network.

The EuroAsia submarine High Voltage Direct Current (HVDC) cable is one of the largest submarine power cable lines in the world which connects the Greek, Cypriot, and Israeli power grids with 2000 MW power capacity. These kind of project will open up substantial prospects for submarine power cable suppliers in the ensuing years. Prominent reports inform that in 2018, Europe submarine power cable market had generated a revenue of more than USD 2.5 billion.

Owing to widespread implementation of pioneering energy transfer technologies, there would be promising growth prospects for offshore wind farms over the forecast period and subsequent need for power transmission. Eminent players offering reliable subsea cable products include Sumitomo Electric, LS Cable & Systems, Nexans, KEI Industries, Prysmian, Furukawa, TF Kable, Ningbo Orient wires, Sumitomo Electric, ABB, Intertek Group, and Hengtong Marine Cable Systems. Global Market Insights, Inc. has projected that global submarine power cable market size will surpass USD 3 billion in annual valuation by 2025.
