Significant Traction from Power Distributor and Industrial Sector
Electrotechnical paper market has been gaining significant traction because of electrotechnical papers’ industrial applications and customers in niche segments of the specialty paper market. Electrotechnical papers are high tech specialty papers that are used for insulation purposes and are broadly employed in the electricity distribution market such as cable manufacturers, transformer manufacturers, high quality and technically advanced products, which eventually end up in the networks of power distributors. Electrotechnical papers are purchased in large rolls, directly by the customer to the plant where the electrotechnical paper is wrapped around the end products. Manufacturers of abrasive materials, the woodworking industry, and transformer manufacturers represent a majority of the business area’s customers for the electrotechnical paper market. The electrotechnical paper market is driven by power network upgrades and by projects to increase the access to energy in the emerging markets. Electrotechnical paper serves as an insulation of transformers and high voltage power cables. Prepared in the right way, the electrotechnical paper is given the characteristics and ability to prevent power loss and therefore, is a preferred product by the consumers.
Strong Competition from Substitute Products
Electrical power supply industries have been profiting highly from the electrotechnical paper. The electrotechnical paper market is a central part of sustainable energy supply, while the paper that the glass producers use is very thin and in few cases it is reused a several times, therefore diminishing the manufacturing footprint. The paper must be entirely free of charged ions and chemicals. In abrasive backings, new environment-friendly materials are replacing old impregnating agents over time and substance mix reflections to reduce misuse are an integral part of the electrotechnical paper market. Electrotechnical papers provide insulation to the electrically conducting materials, thereby preventing accidental electrical shocks. Increasing globalization and urbanization has induced significant changes in consumer lifestyle across the globe influencing electrotechnical paper market. Awareness and arrangements have been made to supply electricity in the most remote areas of the countries, thus, driving the market for electrotechnical paper towards growth.
However, there are several substitute products that are often preferred by the consumers instead of electrotechnical paper that are considered more durable and reliable than electrotechnical papers, such as plastic wire covering and insulations. These products provide considerable competition to the electrotechnical paper market and further provide a hindrance to the electrotechnical market growth.
Electrotechnical Papers to Penetrate Heavily In Cable Insulation Applications
Electrotechnical papers market is segmented on the basis of product type, application and region. The electrotechnical paper product types include presspaper, diamond dotted presspaper, presspaper with polyester film, crepe paper, and aluminum crepe paper. Presspaper can be further classified into, grade K, grade 3, Grade 4, grade K (T/U). Similarly, diamond dotted presspaper can be classified as grade 3 diamond dotted presspaper, grade K T/U diamond dotted presspaper. By application, the electrotechnical papers market is categorized into, cable paper, high voltage power cable paper, capacitor tissue, Transformer board and others. The penetration of electrotechnical papers in cable paper application is very high as compared to other industries. Transformer board also deploys a wide range of electrotechnical papers among other applications.
Developing Economies to Continue Dominance
In terms of regions, the electrotechnical papers market has been broadly divided into seven regions, namely, North America, South America, Europe, CIS and Russia, Japan, APEJ and MEA. Despite the concentration of players in North America, electrotechnical papers manufacturers are primarily concentrated in Asian countries, mostly China. Focus on energy efficiency, electricity conservation awareness and increased penetration of automation are the key factors driving the market for electrotechnical papers in the APEJ region. The Chinese and Indian electrical supply sector is exhibiting robust growth in the region. The manufacturers have inclined towards electrotechnical papers for increased electrical safety and prevention from hazardous situations. The inexpensive labor and the new labor laws have also supported the manufacturing industry, providing a large market for electrotechnical papers in the region. Apart from APEJ, North America and Europe are also anticipated to depict growth in the upcoming years in the electrotechnical papers market. Some of the key market players in the electrotechnical papers market are Ahlstrom-Munksjö, Glatfelter, Delfort Group, Weidmann Electrical Technology AG, EIS Inc., ASTM, Miki Tokushu Paper MFG.CO., Ltd., Cottrell Paper Company, Fralock Innovative Materials Manufacturing & Automation, Edison Tech Center and other prominent players.
