Insights into Segmentation Analysis

AIS Continues to Dominate

The air-insulated switchgear (AIS) captures the largest market share due to its eco-friendly attributes, cost-effectiveness, and versatility for various applications. This segment continues to dominate the market, driven by its environmentally friendly characteristics. Unlike gas-insulated switchgear (GIS), AIS does not use greenhouse gases like SF6, aligning with the growing concerns of regulators and environmentally conscious consumers.

Moreover, AIS proves to be cost-effective, with lower installation and maintenance expenses compared to GIS. Its versatility and reliability make it the preferred choice for various applications, contributing to its dominant market position.

High Voltage Segment to Surge Ahead Through 2030

High-voltage switchgear dominates the market, playing a vital role in long-distance electricity transmission and efficient grid management. The high-voltage switchgear segment secures the largest market share due to its indispensable role in the transmission and distribution of electricity over long distances.

As the demand for reliable power distribution, renewable energy integration, and industrial expansion surges, the need for high-voltage switchgear becomes paramount. Technological advancements have further enhanced the reliability, compactness, and environmental friendliness of high-voltage switchgear, positioning it as a leader in applications such as substations, power generation, and industrial facilities.

Demand from Commercial Sector Maximum, Transmission & Distribution Utilities Hold Opportunity

The commercial sector leads the market, driven by the need for reliable electrical distribution systems in office buildings, shopping centres, and data centres. The commercial sector commands the largest market share in the switchgear industry. Commercial facilities such as office buildings, shopping centres, and data centres require reliable and efficient electrical distribution systems to meet their operational needs.

The increasing adoption of smart building technologies has further driven the demand for advanced switchgear solutions in the commercial sector. Moreover, the commercial sector often undergoes rapid urbanisation and construction, further boosting the need for switchgear in new infrastructure projects. The critical role of switchgear in ensuring uninterrupted power supply in commercial applications has led to its prominent market share.
