Government Regulations and Industrial Reliance Drive Growth in the Transfer Switch Market, Projected to Reach $2.4 Billion by 2028

Dublin, Oct. 16, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Transfer Switch Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028" report has been added to's offering.

The global transfer switch market, which reached a size of US$ 1.6 billion in 2022, is set to experience significant growth in the coming years. Analysts project the market to reach US$ 2.4 billion by 2028, with a steady compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.5% during the period from 2023 to 2028.

A transfer switch is an electromechanical device used to shift the load between two power sources, either electronically or mechanically. It ensures uninterrupted power supply by swiftly transitioning between multiple power sources. There are two main types of transfer switches: manual and automatic.

Manual transfer switches require human intervention to switch to an alternate power source, such as a generator, in case of a power outage. In contrast, automatic transfer switches (ATS) can detect power interruptions and switch to an alternate source automatically, offering enhanced reliability and safety.

Key Market Trends Driving Growth

  • Stable Power Supply: The increasing need for stable power sources, driven by rapid industrialization worldwide, is a primary factor propelling market growth.
  • Resilience Against Power Outages: Frequent occurrences of power outages, blackouts, voltage fluctuations, and unexpected burnouts are contributing to the rising demand for transfer switches.
  • Industrial and Commercial Dependence: The industrial, commercial, and residential sectors are increasingly reliant on electric generators to ensure uninterrupted power supply, further boosting demand for these devices.
  • Government Regulations: Favorable government policies related to operational safety and growing demand for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) networks are stimulating market growth.
  • Research and Development: Increased focus on research and development (R&D) activities to develop enhanced product variants is another driver of market expansion.
