Global Switchgear Market to be Driven by the Increasing Investments in T&D Infrastructure by Leading Companies

top switchgear companies


ABB Ltd., Mitsubishi Electric Corporation, Siemens AG, Eaton Corporation plc, Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation, and Hitachi, Ltd., among others, are the major players in the global market for switchgears.


As per the analysis by Expert Market Research, the global switchgear market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6% in the forecast period of 2023-2028. The main driver of the switchgear industry's growth is the increase in investments in T&D infrastructure.


An electrical component known as switchgear is made up of circuit breakers, fuses, and electrical disconnect switches. Switchgears are used in an electric power system to safeguard, control, and monitor electrical equipment. Additionally, a switchgear has the ability to de-energise a piece of equipment so that repair can be done on it, as well as to clear upstream faults so that current loads flow smoothly.


Additionally supporting the market is the world's accelerating industrialisation and urbanisation along with the rising need for power. Increased innovation, such as the use of digital solutions and smart monitoring technology across the infrastructure of the power grid, and the increased emphasis on sustainability and safety are anticipated to propel market expansion over the course of the projection period.


The increase in the demand for low switchgears, based on voltage type, accounts for a major share in the switchgear market. Asia Pacific is expected to contribute significantly to the growth of the market during the forecast period because of the rapid industrialisation and infrastructural development. In developed countries of Europe and the United States, the adoption of cleaner sources of energy to reduce carbon emissions will also bolster the growth of the industry.


In June 2021, ABB partnered with Axpo, an established and experienced industrial provider, to work on a project aimed at making green hydrogen more accessible and affordable. To find synergies that will assist the standardised, modularised, efficient, and flexible production of green hydrogen, the initial effort will comprise feasibility studies that investigate strategies to lower operating costs and assure a low carbon footprint.
