The global submarine cable system market is expected to grow from $14.40 billion in 2021 to $16.15 billion in 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 12.16%. The growth is mainly due to the companies resuming their operations and adapting to the new normal while recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. The market is expected to reach $26.10 billion in 2026 at a CAGR of 12.76%.

The submarine cable system market consists of sales of submarine cable systems, equipment their maintenance services by entities (organizations, sole traders, and partnerships) that are used for interconnection between two or more regions.Submarine cables also known as marine cables are assemblies of various conductors enclosed by an insulating sheath that are present on the oceanic bed connecting two or more points.

They mainly consist of landing terminating equipment, submarine optical fiber systems, and others.

The rising number of telecom and internet subscriptions is significantly contributing to the growth of the submarine cable system market.A submarine cable system that is laid on the seabed helps in carrying the telecommunication signals across various places by using optical fiber technology.

There is rapid growth in the telecom and internet subscriptions industries as the utility of smartphones compared to normal desktops has increased rapidly, this drives the telecom and internet subscriptions. For instance, according to the Telecom regulatory authority of India, broadband Internet subscribers in India have increased from 747.41 million in 2020 to 778.09 million in 2021. Therefore, the rise in the number of telecom and internet subscriptions is driving the telecom and internet subscriptions market.
