A power cable is an assembly of two or more electrical conductors, usually held together with an overall sheath. The assembly is used for transmission of electrical power. Power cables may be installed as permanent wiring within buildings, buried in the ground, run overhead, or exposed. Cables consist of three major components: conductors, insulation, and protective jacket. The makeup of individual cables varies according to application. Power cables use stranded copper or aluminium conductors, although small power cables may use solid conductors. Copper has a higher conductivity than aluminium. PVC cables are used in home appliance, house wiring, T.V, VCR control panel, power distribution & secondary transmissions etc. The main use of PVC cables are in house wiring. XLPE coated cables and wire are extensively used in all electrical linings, domestic lightings and all other purposes. Parkway lighting, river crossings, and lighting of the grounds of an institution are among the more common applications of armored cable. The market is divided into different segments in terms of product variation. The basic division is between cables and conductors. Cables are either power cables or control cables. Power cables supply energy at voltages up to 230 KV. Control cables are low voltage cables (up to 0.6 KV) used to transmit control signals in switch boards. The conducting material can be copper or aluminium with insulating material, PVC, XLPE, elastomers or paper. Power cable industry in India is eyeing an estimated Rs 50 bn market to unfold. The major players in the organized industry are: Cable Corporation of India, Universal Cables, Fort Gloster, Industrial Cables, Uniflex Cables, RPG Cables, Finolex Cables, Paramount and Hindustan Vidyut Products. Due to demand growth, it is a good project for entrepreneurs to invest & any entrepreneurs venture into this field will be successful.
