Market Overview

The Switchgear market is expected to grow at a high rate during 2017 to 2025. Switchgear is switching devices associated for controlling, metering and regulating electrical power system. Switchgear systems are composes of different electrical instruments such as circuit breakers, fuses, enclosures, ring main unit (RMU) and busbars among others. In order to ensure safety and control of power distribution, switchgear system is placed as important part in transmission and distribution (T&D) network. Renewal of ageing T&D network in many European countries and in China has created the demand for switchgear in this region. In 2017, Latvian transmission system operator (TSO) Augstsprieguma TÄ«kls AS announced investment of €445 million to upgrade its high voltage transmission lines in next 10 years. In addition, rapid electrification in urban as well as rural areas in Asian Countries has increased demand for switchgear in transmission & distribution utilities. According to data published by power ministry’s Grameen Vidyutikaran (GARV), 13,523 villages have been electrified in India during the period of 2015 to 2017.


Rising demand for switchgear in transmission & distribution utilities has been boosting the growth of the market

Segmentation Overview
