Sales Analysis of Electrotechnical Paper Market (2017-2021) Vs. Market Forecast Outlook (2022-2032)

Driven by a focus on research and development and rising investments in the power and energy sector, the electrotechnical paper market will rise at a 4.7% CAGR between 2022 and 2032 in comparison to the 1.1% CAGR registered during 2017-2021.

The growth in global electricity demand is primarily driven by developing economies and are also focusing on improving the access towards energy. This, in turn, opens up opportunities for the electrotechnical paper players as these economies will move towards setting up new electricity grid and infrastructure.

China remains the largest market for electricity accounting for over 29% of the share. This is anticipated to drive the demand for electrotechnical paper market in the country. On other hand US is expected to show a downfall owing to developed transmission and distribution network in the country.

  • Short Term (2022 Q2 to 2025): Increasing utilization and integration of electrotechnical paper in the cables & transformer to positively impact electrotechnical paper market growth.
  • Medium Term (2025-2028): Asia Pacific region is anticipated to witness high electrotechnical paper demand due to investment in electricity sectors in these regions, by the Governments and power and energy sector.
  • Long Term (2028-2032): Increase in the production of diamond dotted presspaper will drive electrotechnical paper manufacturer sales.

Over the 2017-2021 historical period, the global electrotechnical paper market registered a CAGR of 1.1%, and according to the Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider, the market is projected to exhibit growth at 4.7% CAGR between 2022 and 2032.

Market share analysis of electrotechnical paper based on application and region is provided in a nutshell in the above image. Under the application segment, transformer sub-segment dominates with 46.6% market share in 2022.

What’s Driving Demand for Electrotechnical Paper?

“Aging and Inadequate Transmission and Distribution Infrastructure to Drive Sale of Electrotechnical Papers.”

The underinvestment in transmission and distribution infrastructure and increasing demand for electricity have increased the pressure on electricity grids, globally. Further, the existing electric power delivery relies on aging equipment, which therefore requires replacement and upgrade of existing infrastructure.

Such need for replacement and upgradation of transmission and distribution infrastructure is expected to unlock growth avenues for the electrotechnical paper market during the forecast period. For instance, nearly 70% of the transformers are over 25 years old in the United States, according to the US Department of Energy (DOE).

Therefore, developed and developing countries are taking steps to increase their investment in transmission and distribution infrastructure as a result of grid congestion and aged transformers. The demand for T&D is anticipated to rise as a result of an increase in government spending, which will also increase demand for electrotechnical papers.

“Pivotal Role of European Manufacturers in Global Electrotechnical Paper Trade to Bolster Market Growth.”

The rising export of electrotechnical from EU countries has encouraged demand for electrotechnical papers over the past few years. Europe has a high concentration of electrical insulation companies particularly tier 1 companies such as Ahlstrom-Munksjö Oyj, Belfort Group AG, and Weidmann Electrical Technology AG who have established a strong foothold in the European market as well as globally.

These players have established a strong distribution network and also targeted the least penetrated potential markets. Moreover, companies focusing on developing long-term relationships with their customers globally are encouraging players to set up their distribution base in multiple countries. Such initiatives by manufacturers are expected to support the growth of the electrotechnical paper market during the forecast period.
