Restrictions on high power-consuming industries will lead to slower growth in power consumption and less waste.
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 23, 2012
The Power Grid Construction industry in China has been growing 13.9% annually over the past five years to $478.2 billion in 2012, says IBISWorld. Two events contributed to strong growth over the period; both the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008 and the Shanghai World Expo in 2010 led to large government investments in new power infrastructure construction and improvements. The total length of power transmission lines constructed during the period is estimated at 894.2 thousand kilometers.
The Power Grid Construction industry is heavily controlled by the Chinese government. The three major industry enterprises, State Grid Corporation of China, China Southern Power Grid Corporation and Inner Mongolia Power Grid Corporation, serve over 95% of China's land area and generate the majority of total industry revenue. These state-owned enterprises are heavily supported by the government, which gives them a competitive edge over possible new entrants. Advantages of new entrants include advanced technology and engagement in activities supported and encouraged by the government. Power grid construction is critical to the smooth operation and long-term development of the country. Therefore, foreign capital is not permitted, except to supply advanced technologies and R&D for new equipment.
As China puts restrictions on high power-consuming industries and places more emphasis on intensive rather than extensive production, power consumption is expected to be more reasonable with less waste. This will lead to slower growth in the Power Grid Construction industry, even as demand grows, says IBISWorld.
