Submarine or subsea cables are a complete necessity today, on par with global positioning satellites and sea freight. Subsea cables are the cables laid on the sea bed between land-based stations to benefit the telecommunication signal across the stretches of ocean. The subsea cables allows us to quickly send our mails, browse videos, etc. The length of a subsea cable varies with a distance of few kilometres to more than 35,000 kilometres.
The growth in subsea cables market is anticipated to grow largely as they are becoming increasingly important to interlink countries and are a source of promoting global economic growth, thereby driving the demand for subsea cables across the globe.
