Power transmission towers and cables are an integral part of the power transmission infrastructure. Various power transmission towers and cables are used for the distribution and transmission of electricity from numerous power generation facilities to end users. Power transmission cables are primarily used as underground or submarine and overhead cables for taking care of offshore and onshore operations. They are submerged in water or are placed underground to provide smooth electricity transmission networks. Depending on the voltage, power transmission cables are available in three types, medium, high, and extra-high voltage cables. Otherwise, they are also classified as DC cables and AC cables, according to the type of electricity they are carrying.
Power transmission towers are used for the purpose of carrying and supporting electricity transmission lines. They carry hefty transmission conductors at a sufficient height from the ground. Power transmission towers are made of various materials such as lattice, wood, concrete, and tubular steel. The global power transmission towers and cables market is segmented on the basis of geography and type. Based on type, the global power transmission towers and cables market is classified into power transmission cables and power transmission towers. In 2014, the power transmission cables segment accounted for a massive share of 70% in the global power transmission towers and cables market.
