UAE power cables market registered substantial growth in 2017 attributed to recovery in copper and aluminium prices as well as significant investment in mega infrastructure projects such as new high-rise skyscrapers, theme parks, state-of-the-art shopping malls and artificial islands. Furthermore, sustained economic diversification efforts in the country also contributed to an increase in the sales for power cables.
According to 6Wresearch, UAE power cables market revenues are projected to reach $2.5 billion by 2024. Upcoming projects such as Mohammed bin Rashid City, MBR City-District One, Barakah Nuclear Power Plant and Aljada megaproject would increase the demand for power cables in the country. Further, government initiatives such as UAE Vision 2021, Dubai Plan 2021, the Abu Dhabi Economic Vision 2030, Sharjah Tourism Vision 2021 along with rapid urbanization and rising electricity consumption in the country would additionally encourage the growth of power cables in near-future.
According to Ravi Bhandari, Assistant Manager, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch, "Infrastructure sector held majority of the revenue share in 2017 on account of ambitious government plan for infrastructure development including construction of roads, airport, metro, ports, power plants and hospitals."
"However, buildings and industrial sector is expected to grow at a faster rate than the infrastructure sector during the forecast period as a result of ongoing construction activities in the real estate and hospitality sectors, as the country prepares itself to host World Expo in 2020," Ravi further added.
According to Rishi Malhotra, Sr. Research Analyst, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch, "Low voltage (up to 1 kV) power cable segment held the highest revenue share in 2017 on account of its installation in buildings, infrastructure, oil & gas, petrochemicals and other industrial applications."
"Moreover, amongst all the regions, Dubai held major revenue share and is expected to maintain its leadership during the forecast period as well, attributed to ongoing and upcoming commercial building and transport infrastructure projects in the region," Rishi concluded.
