Market Highlights

A variety of new power generation and transmission ventures are being observed in the global energy and distribution industry. As the per capita income increases, greater access to power is needed to enable an economy to grow.

In the Asia Pacific region , for example, the past decade witnessed an exponential growth in power plant installation projects , particularly in countries like India and China. With the increase in power demand, there is a rise in power generation projects that can allow the masses to get electricity. With countries struggling to curb emissions caused by the activity of thermal and fossil fuel plants, renewable energy facilities are growing in numbers.

Recently , the trend of aging electrical infrastructure refurbishment coupled with growing investment in distribution in the power sector has boosted demand for load break switches. The exiting rise in renewable-based power generation is also a significant boost to the demand for load break switches. The power industry is experiencing a series of new power generation and transmission projects with high population proliferation.

A strong need for increased access to power to allow economic growth has been seen. Certain factors driving market growth are the growth of the electricity generation industry, growing technical developments and growing networks for power delivery. With encouraging growth positivity in the years to come, these technologies are increasingly establishing themselves on the market.

Market Segmentation

The global Load Break Switches Market Outlook was segmented based on type, type of voltage, type of installation, end-use industries and area. The load break switch is further classified according to type into gas-insulated, vacuum-insulated, air-insulated, and oil-immersed types. According to the MRFR report, due to its increased application in renewable energy system projects, the gas-insulated segment is projected to command a large share of the market. The gas-insulated form is also growing in popularity due to its ease of maintenance and longer life cycles.

With countries focusing on large projects in the field of renewable energy, globally, The gas-insulated type is expected to command a larger market share among the various types of load interruptors. Depending on the form of installation, the outdoor segment is projected to command a greater market share, due to its increased implementation in commercial and utility projects. In addition, the residential sector is seeing a steady growth due to several distributed grid and smart grid initiatives in the European and North American regions. 

Regional Outlook

Based on region, the market was formerly dominated by North America and Europe as these regions had augmented emphasis on safety and providing grid connectivity to the remote locations.

The Asia Pacific region is expected to dominate the global charge break turn market. The market is expected to expand rapidly in the region, with major power generation projects and grid modernization projects being introduced in countries such as China , India and Indonesia. With remote grid access being another major agenda in those countries, remote power generation projects also contribute to the growth of the switch markets for load breaks. The market is expected to witness an enormous opportunity by digitizing the utilities sector. It is estimated that the Europe region will have the second largest market share with major countries in the world concentrating on grid upgrade projects.
