“The load break switch market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.16%, from 2018 to 2023.”
The load break switch market is projected to reach USD 3.12 billion by 2023, from an estimated USD 2.32 billion in 2018, at a CAGR of 6.16%, during the forecast period. The refurbishment of aging electrical infrastructure and increasing investment in power distribution sector have boosted the demand for load break switches. Also, the growing renewable-based power generation would further aid the growth of this market. The slowdown in the oil & gas sector would act as a restraint for the load break switch market.

’The 11 kV–33 kV segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR, from 2018 to 2023.”
The 11–33 kV segment is expected to be the fastest growing load break switch market, by voltage, from 2018 to 2023. It is considered to be the ideal voltage range for load break switches. These switches find application in the overhead power distribution network in utilities, manufacturing & process industries, and commercial facilities. Application-based demand is high for this particular voltage range, resulting in the higher market share of 11–33 kV load break switches. The demand for 11–33 kV load break switches is also driven by the increasing power demand in developing countries such as India, China, and Japan.

“The utilities segment is expected to dominate the load break switch market from 2018 to 2023.”
The utilities segment is estimated to be the largest market for load break switches in 2018. The market for the utilities segment is driven by the investments being made by electric utilities on refurbishing their existing electrical infrastructure to avoid power failures and deterioration of the existing electrical infrastructure.
