Electrotechnical Paper Market to See Decline in Sales in Near Term Due to COVID-19 Pandemic, But Long-term Outlook Remains Positive


by Team Fact.MR

The electrotechnical paper market is poised to expand at a value CAGR of close to 5%, and is expected to create an absolute dollar opportunity of US$ 550 Mn over the forecast duration of 2020-2030. The outbreak of COVID-19 will have a short-term impact on the electrotechnical paper market. However, reliability of electric power is critical to a nation’s economic vitality, as power failures can lead to large potential economic loss. Therefore, growth in demand for reliable delivery of electric power is boosting investments, which is expected to supplement the growth of the electrotechnical paper market.

Moreover, shift from coal to natural gas-powered generation is resulting in significant investments to upgrade and improve transmission infrastructure and ensure grid reliability. Further, tightening environmental regulations have resulted in decline in development of coal-fired generation plants.Therefore, upgradation of grid infrastructure will continue to drive investments, as the shift becomes more pronounced over the forecast period. This transition is expected to drive growth of the electrotechnical paper market over the coming years.

Key Takeaways from Electrotechnical Paper Market Study

  • By application, transformers are foreseen to grow 2.5X than motors in 2020. On the other hand, cables will account for 1/4 of the overall market share in 2020.
