The growing targets by regional governments for delivering electricity in rural areas and growing investments in this industry are the key market trends projected to cater to the market growth.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The COVID-19 pandemic has moderately impacted the overall hybrid switchgear industry statistics because of lockdown inconveniences, closing of different assemblies and industrial facilities, and postponements in various infrastructural projects. Consistent maintenance of electrical grid frameworks during the pandemic and vaccination drives to curb the Covid-19 spread will supplement sector development. Moreover, increasing building construction development facilities, followed by the rising demand for replacing and renovating aging grid infrastructure, will support overall growth.

 Hybrid Switchgear Market Dynamics

The key factors driving the market's growth are the increasing involvement of the private sector in transmission and distribution, resulting in infrastructure development in developing economies such as Australia, China, Thailand, and India. Furthermore, key players such as ABB and GE are actively collaborating with governments of developing economies in Asia to strengthen the efficiency and reliability of transmission and distribution networks. Also, factors such as enhanced power consumption, government mandates on energy efficiency, growing adoption of renewable resources in the power mix, and upgradation of aging hydropower plants in Asia-Pacific are propelling the growth of the hybrid switchgear industry.

 Market Drivers

 Exponentially growing industrial infrastructure

The enhanced energy demand to strengthen rapid urbanization and growing awareness for the new generation mix is estimated to fuel the market growth. This equipment is primarily utilized in complex electrical substations and enterprises to withstand variable operating voltages, along with increased environmental conditions to support the stability of the voltage. Infrastructural developments are fueling the utilization of switching components in commercial applications. The construction and upgradation of recent industrial structures, including power plants, government offices, banks, and other commercial buildings, will further drive market growth.

The growing integration of smart monitoring and control units across power grid infrastructure

Switching tools are created by digital solutions, integrating advanced smart monitoring and control units and other features for incorporation into the power grid infrastructure. Growing investments in sustainable power generation technology will further accelerate the demand for this equipment. Hence, the enhancing adoption of switching equipment equipped with advanced features is a new trend that would accelerate the  hybrid switchgear market growth over the forecast period.

market Restraints:

  • Harsh environmental conditions & high price of hybrid switchgear equipment

The harsh environmental conditions, such as pressure, temperature, and humidity, along with water leakage from the environment, are some of the major factors which can impact the efficiency of electrical switchgear equipment that is usually installed in an outdoor location. Hence, to cater to the atmospheric circumstances, regulatory institutions formulated stringent restrictions and specifications for higher reliability and feasibility. This equipment includes advanced features and a lot-based control system, which makes its cost higher. It provides a complete solution that is complex and expensive. Therefore, the high capital investment in the hybrid switchgear industry and the harsh environmental conditions may hinder market growth over the forecast period.

Market Opportunities:

  • Growing smart technologies and digitalization

The intelligent switchgear business is expanding continuously with continual advances in infrastructure and production facilities. Smart switchgear, which plays an important part in energy distribution to industry and residential areas, is one of the sector's most important stimulants. As a result, implementing smart power distribution devices such as smart switchgear is critical for ensuring increased performance, power continuity, and resource optimization while lowering the transmission, operational, and maintenance costs. New smart hybrid switchgear is flexible, energy-efficient, and future-proof. They offer update and upgrade solutions with zero downtime; these technologies are expected to grow significantly over the forecasted period and provide growth opportunities.

  • Up gradation of aging power infrastructure

The growing energy demand has led to a need for a reliable and stable T&D network. The primary reasons behind the rising number of blackouts are the lack of investments, aging infrastructure, and improper regulations for the modernization of the grid. New regulations for reducing power blackouts and upgrading the aging power system infrastructure across the globe are creating a potential opportunity for the growth of the market.
