Top impacting factors: Market Scenario Analysis, Trends, Drivers, and Impact Analysis

Rise in need of submarine cable systems in offshore wind farms and increase in number of telecom networks across oceans, land and offshore. The other important growth factors of these systems are its high reliability and the capacity of the submarine cables. In addition, these cables are cost efficient, which further drives the market. High maintenance and repair cost, natural calamities, fishing and shipping activities hinder the market growth. Furthermore, rapid digitalization and modernization across the world is expected to drive the submarine cable system market growth.

New product launches to flourish the submarine cable system market

Malaysia and Indonesia deployed the SEAX-1 project in the year 2018. For this project, Nexans revealed that it will deliver and manufacture 250 kms of submarine fiber optic cable to Huawei Marine as prime supplier for construction of the SEAX-1 project. This project aims to connect Indonesia and Malaysia by providing high speed robust data connectivity to its population.

Thus, this system flourished the market, owing to rapid digitalization in these countries and increase in usage of internet.

Surge in usage in power generation industry

As the world is moving toward adoption of renewable sources of energy, governments of various countries have increased their electricity generation output by using renewable sources of energy such as wind energy. This has led to increase in number of offshore wind farms as they are integral part of the renewable power generation and cable systems. As investments and developments of the offshore wind projects has increased demand and use of submarine cable system has increased as well.

COVID-19 scenario Analysis: 

  • COVID-19 has created major concerns and hardships amongst people and businesses across the globe.
  • Most companies have business continuity plans but those plans are not fully operational.
  • Ongoing crisis demand better telecommunication network and networking infrastructure, owing to shift to remote work adopted across the globe. Hence, better networks across seas and oceans would also be needed, owing of transportation of goods and services. As submarine cable systems are basic requirements for communication, their usage is going to increase. 
  • The global supply chain has been affected as manufacturing and delivery of system equipment is delayed. Moreover, projects of adopting 5G networks would be delayed further.
  • Telecommunication and system providers must be prepared to face challenges from the uncertainty caused by the pandemic.
