Wire & Cable India
Headlines Special Feature


Wires and cables are channels of power and data which empowers today’s civilized societies and thus it is imperative for any country to become self-reliant in the production of ample and quality wires and cables. Indian wire and cable companies are increasingly aligning themselves to the global quality and technology benchmark to produce wires and cables satisfying both domestic and global customers.

The growth indicators in India are profuse amidst mega public and private investments. Some of which are the Govt.’s commitment to provide 24×7 affordable and quality power resulting into massive electrification and generation drive, USD 50 billion investment supported by the Govt.’s 18 billion in the transmission sector, the telecommunications market being the third largest and the fastest growing, etc. Automotive, telecommunication and construction industries, three most important customer segments, are growing appreciably with annual growth of 25 percent in past few years, indicating a manufacturing boon for the wire and cable industry. Besides, India is on path to become a truly knowledge-based digital economy with ambitious projects like BharatNet and Smart City.

The Government’s fund allocations in the two important schemes, viz. Deendayal Upadhyay Gram Jyoti Yojna (DDUGJY) and Integrated Power Development Scheme (IPDS) has been enhanced from Rs. 4,500 Cr. to Rs. 8,500 Cr. which would give a boost in demand to the electrical equipment manufacturing industry. The power sector is said to be at a point of inflection, where sooner rather than later, the growth trajectory would be unlocked actualizing the targeted capacity addition of 88.5 GW set in the 12th Plan. Capacity addition from the new and renewable energy sources, viz., solar & wind is also on full thrust.

Amid all these positive growth pointers, it is expected that the industry, which has been growing at the rate of around 15 percent currently, will start growing at the CAGR of over 20 percent over the next 5 years. Wire & Cable India’s biennial survey of major operating manufacturing enterprises, which are India’s largest, most powerful wire and cable companies, is an attempt to present a glimpse of the growing landscape of the Indian wire cable Industry.

New developments since 2014:

a. Sterlite launched Master System Integration in 2014 which was a first in industry initiative directed to customer’s needs in tandem with future requirements.

b. Sterlite Power delivered India’s first smart power transmission line in Goa by upgrading the four decade old 110 KV Double Circuit Transmission Line connecting the substations of Ponda, Tivim&Kadamba. These substation are automated with Active Tele Protection & Communication Equipment with existing Earth Wire are replaced with Optical Ground Wire for Communication Teleprotection. With the completion of this challenging project, Goa’s power transmission infrastructure has become more robust, reliable and future ready.

c. Today SPTL MSI Solutions are deployed in around 12 states in India, enabling in 110% increase in MW/Sq. Mtr bringing in 24×7 quality power to the society.

d. Sterlite became the first player to complete a power infrastructure project ahead of schedule when it completed the RAPP Transmission Project almost a year of schedule in January 2016. The line evacuates power through a network of about 200 Km long 400 kV Double Circuit line. This has strengthened power transfer capability from Northern Grid to Western Grid.

e. Sterlite Power followed it by commissioning the Jalandhar Samba Line 14 months ahead of schedule. The project will deliver over 1,000 MW of electricity from Punjab to the Kashmir Valley, strengthening the National Grid.

f. Sterlite Power is the first company in India’s infrastructure development space to employ helicranes for speedier implementation. It has commenced air crane operations for the NRSS-29 project in J&K for construction of transmission towers.

g. Sterlite Power has partnered with a Finnish drone service company, Sharper Shape to bring their automated inspection and maintenance planning services for infrastructure asset owners to India.

h. Sterlite Power commissioned the Kharagpur – Chaibasa 400 kV D/C line covering 322CKm, which has made available an extra 600 MW to load centres like Kolkata along the existing capacity.

i. Sterlite Power became the first private sector company to raise AAA (SO) rated Rs ~1,000 crore infrastructure bond without any Government guarantee.

j. Sterlite Power conceptualized and co-created (with Tata Power), the 3 Core 66 KV Power Cable (global standard is 1 C 66 KV) for use in Tata Power’s transmission network for first time globally for terrestrial application. This cable has changed the way 66 kV underground cable installation is done in India.

k. Sterlite Power has supplied India’s First Fiber Integrated Power Cable (to BSES Rajdhani). This would be game changer application for the advanced distribution companies as Optical Fiber can reveal many hidden parameters of the power cables during operations.

l. Sterlite Power was again the first company to use helicopters for cable stringing on transmission towers, thereby reducing implementation time and also causing least disturbance to the land below.

m. In another first in India’s transmission space, Sterlite Power implemented LiDAR survey (an aerial technology) for projects planning for greater accuracy.
