Hybrid Switchgear Market Scenario


Hybrid Switchgear Market is projected to be worth USD 37.53 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 16.89% CAGR during the forecast period (2021 - 2027)


Hybrid switchgears were introduced in the late 1990s with the incorporation of two different technologies, namely, AIS and SF6. These switchgears combine the components of both traditional air-insulated switchgear and SF6 gas-insulated switchgear technologies. One technology is used for arc quenching purposes, while air-insulation technology is adopted for busbars to be connected to other equipment present in a high voltage substation. The key advantages of hybrid switchgears include less equipment cost, easy extension, smaller size, making them compact, and combined features of air-insulated and gas-insulated switchgear. Moreover, these switchgears can be used in medium voltage applications such as medium voltage switchgears. The majority of existing substations have functioned beyond their operational lives and the replacement of conventional air-insulated switchgear and electric switchgear components such as disconnectors and circuit-breakers are relatively expensive. This would eventually lead to the development of innovative switchgears with the functions of geographic information system integrated with dead tank circuit breakers, thereby boosting the hybrid switchgear industry.


The global hybrid switchgear market size is expected to reach USD 29.05 Billion by 2024 at a CAGR of 14.05% from 2019 to 2024. The key factors driving the growth of hybrid switchgear market are increasing involvement of private sector in transmission and distribution resulting in infrastructure development in emerging economies such as China, Australia, Thailand, and India. Moreover, key players such as ABB and GE are actively collaborating with governments of developing economies in Asia in order to strengthen the efficiency and reliability of transmission and distribution networks. Also, factors such as increased power consumption, government mandates on energy efficiency, rising adoption of renewable resources in the energy mix, and up gradation of aging hydropower plants in Asia-Pacific are driving the growth of the market for global hybrid switchgear. Moreover, increasing demand for compact devices to be installed in substations and replacement of old switchgears would present an opportunity for players in the hybrid switchgear market. However, cost-intensive nature of hybrid switchgear can pose a restraint to the hybrid switchgear market growth.
