At present, domestic and international submarine cables have broad market and application prospects, mainly reflecting the following markets:
1. Coastal cities and island markets
Submarine cables are an important means of transmission of electricity and communications between coastal islands and cities.
The amount of optoelectronic composite submarine cable and submarine cross-linked cable required between China's coastal cities, between islands and between islands and the mainland is about 800km in 2006, and the estimated demand is more than 3,000km by 2020.filling gel for optical fiber loose tube
2. Submarine cable market for offshore oil platforms
It is known that the amount of cable used on each offshore oil platform is: 150km for self-elevating platform, 180km for semi-submersible platform, 200km for oil production platform, 200km for production platform and 100km for living platform.hot application filling gel
3. Underwater cable market such as rivers and lakes
Due to the need to transform rivers, lakes and reservoir dams, underwater cables are used more and more widely. In China, they are mainly distributed in the Changjiang River, Yellow River, Nujiang, Qiantang River and Pearl River markets.
4. Submarine cable for offshore wind power generation and transmission
The construction of offshore wind farms is an important direction for the development of international new energy, and it will also be the top priority of China's wind power industry development. There are nearly one hundred onshore wind farms in China, but the construction of offshore wind farms is just beginning. For submarine cable, its application in offshore wind power generation and transmission has broad market prospects.water blocking glass yarn
5. Southeast Asia and other international markets
Southeast Asian countries such as Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Myanmar, etc. do not have the production capacity of submarine cables. Many local regional submarine cable projects have imported optoelectronic composite submarine cables from Western Europe, which is costly. Relatively speaking, China's submarine cable manufacturers have cost and geographical advantages.
