The mineral insulated heating cable market in Europe is expected to grow from US$ 63.99 million in 2019 to US$ 89.98 million by 2027; it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 4.7% from 2020 to 2027.
The growing population across the region and growing living standard is also bolstering the growth of the construction industry. The countries in Europe have accounted for a huge number of residential construction projects in recent years owing to the staggering growth of the population in the regions. Mineral insulated cables are used for power and control circuits of mains supply cables within residential apartment blocks. These cables offer economical commercial and high-end residential floor warming. The emerging energy requirement in the economies demands for power grid interconnections in densely populated areas, which, in turn, creates a huge opportunity for manufacturers of mineral insulated heating cables. This increment in the energy requirement, across different countries of the region, has resulted in mounting investments in the development of smart grids in these countries, which is further driving the demand for mineral insulated heating cables. The progression in power generation from renewable energy sources is expected to positively influence the demand for mineral insulated heating cables.
Additionally, Businesses in the region are facing severe economic difficulties as they either had to suspend their operations or reduce their activities in a substantial manner. The region is a major manufacturing and industrial hub for sectors such as construction sector. Hence, due to business lockdowns, travel bans, and supply chain disruptions, the region is anticipated to an economic slowdown in 2020 and most likely in 2021 also. The member states of Europe such as Italy, Spain and Germany have implemented drastic measures and travel restrictions to limit the spread of coronavirus among its citizens. European countries represent a major market for mineral insulated heating cable adoption and growth owing to the high purchasing power of individual customers and boosting mineral insulated heating cable industry.
Based on sheath type, the copper segment dominated the Europe mineral insulated heating cable market in 2019. Copper has high temperature resistance, due to which it is one of the most popular materials among cable manufacturers worldwide.
