“The switchgear market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2020 to 2025”
The switchgear market size will grow to USD 88.5 billion by 2025 (forecast year) from USD 67.5 billion in 2020 (estimated year), at a post COVID-19 CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period. Replacement of aging infrastructure in North America, along with upgradation of existing substations due to rising electricity demand in Europe and Asia Pacific are the driving factors for the switchgear market, globally.
“The >36 kV segment, by voltage, is expected to be the largest switchgear market during the forecast period”
The >36 kV segment is considered in the medium to high voltage range and primarily used in T&D sub-stations, heavy industries, mining, railway, and commercial infrastructure. The equipment used in the >36 kV switchgear segment includes medium and high voltage circuit breakers, AIS, and hybrid switchgears. The switchgears in this voltage range are also used in renewable power transmission as well as in medium voltage sub-stations and with the growth in renewable sector is expected to enhance the demand for this segment.
“The outdoor segment, by installation, is expected to be the fastest growing market from 2020 to 2025”
Outdoor gas-insulated switchgears are designed to be installed in an open environment, unlike indoor gas-insulated switchgears. The outdoor gas-insulated switchgear is constructed in such a way that all the apparatus can be protected against harsh environmental conditions, including windstorms or sandstorms, which include possible contamination. Outdoor gas-insulated switchgears are expected to have a larger share of the market than indoor types due to their vast implementation area. APAC presents promising opportunities for the outdoor-type gas-insulated switchgear market.
“Asia Pacific: The largest growing region in the switchgear market.”
Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global switchgear market between 2020 and 2025. As per the Indian Electrical and Electronics Manufacturer Association (IEEMA), the electricity generation capacity is expected to increase from 200 GW in 2010 to over 800 GW by 2032 to fulfill the increasing demand of customers. Thus, there is a need for a huge investment of approximately USD 300 billion in the next 3–4 years which is expected to boost the switchgear market during the forecast period.
