Distribution Feeder Protection System Market Scenario


Distribution feeder protection system market is expected to grow at 6.19% CAGR during the period, 2019 to 2024.


The key factors driving the distribution feeder protection system market are the growing power demand globally and growing adoption of feeder protection devices for safe transmission & distribution. In 2017, the global consumption of electricity went high up to 22,015 TWh. The rising demand for electricity is expected to continue during the forecast period. According to International Energy Agency, World Energy Outlook 2017, in the new policies scenario, global energy demands are not as high as in the past and are rising at slower pace, but still have the potential to expand at phenomenal rate of 30% by 2040. It can be interpreted that, as the demand for energy is increasing in the world rapidly, the need for electricity infrastructure will also increase, which will further increase the demand for distribution feeder protection system. Moreover, the factors such as use of renewable and non-conventional energy sources and global need to upgrade transmission & distribution grids (both grounded & undergrounded) to offer lucrative business opportunities in the global distribution feeder protection system market. However, the factors such as high price of feeder protection system and high maintenance cost of distribution feeder protection system can act as a restraint for the global distribution feeder protection system market. 


Key Players


The key players of global Distribution Feeder Protection System Market are ABB (Switzerland), Siemens AG (Germany), General Electric (US), Eaton Co. Plc. (Ireland), Schneider Electric SA (France), Crompton Greaves Ltd. (India), Toshiba Corporation (Japan), Basler Electric Company. (US), Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (Japan), Schweitzer Engineering Laboratories, Inc. (US), Littelfuse Inc. (US), and Fanox Electronic, S.L. (Spain), Larsen & Toubro (India), Western Power Distribution (UK), and NOJA Power (Australia).


Global distribution feeder protection system market has been segmented based on voltage rating and end user. On the basis of voltage rating, the market is segmented as low voltage and medium voltage. The medium voltage sub-segment led the market and held the largest market share in 2018 because of its increasing application in industrial sector. The end user segment is further sub-segmented into transmission & distribution utility, manufacturing & processing industries, and commercial & residential. The transmission & distribution utility sub-segment of the global distribution feeder protection system market is estimated to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period. These distribution feeder protection systems are widely used in power plants, industrial plants and conventional electric utility companies. The constant need for electricity and the unstable electricity supply situation in most developing countries will aid in the growth of the distribution feeder protection system market over the forecast period in the transmission & distribution utility segment.


On the basis of region, the global Distribution Feeder Protection System Market is segmented as Asia Pacific, North America, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia-Pacific held the largest share in the distribution feeder protection system market due to the growing investments in transmission & distribution sector in the countries nations, including India, China, and Southeast Asian countries. China is expected to account for the largest share of the regional market and India is expected to be the fastest growing country in the region. For instance, according to Asian Development Bank, the region needs USD 1.7 trillion per year as investment in infrastructure which also includes transmission and distribution infrastructure. Such factors are likely to drive the distribution feeder protection system market in the Asia-Pacific.


Distribution feeder protection system is a device normally used in an electric distribution system (substations & transformer) that safeguards the expensive components and systems from potential threats such as lightening causing flash-over, blackout, strong wind blowing tree branches into electric lines, transmission line tower flash-over, transformer failure and generator failure. A distribution feeder protection system consists of fuses, sensors and interconnections. Distribution feeder protection systems are highly responsive to fault conditions, reliable and selective in isolating minimum amount of system and interrupt service to fewest customer with minimizing system & apparatus damage.
