Insulator Market Trends

ID: MRFR//2498-HCR | 111 Pages | Author: Priya Nagrale| July 2024

Insulator Market Overview

Insulator market is expected to reach USD 21.78 Billion by 2032 with CAGR of 5.6% from 2024 to 2032. In addition to new demand, the demand for modernisation of existing infrastructure to suit the technological innovations in the power industry ecosystem will be seen positively impacting the insulator market revenue during the forecast period. Growing electricity demand coupled with growing concern for safe transmission & distribution of electricity and the increasing grid infrastructure, will boost the global insulator market size over the forecast timeline.

COVID-19 Analysis

The continuing COVID 19 pandemic has severely cut down exploration activities in the oil & gas sector. Many Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) projects have also suffered indefinite delays causing a decline in the requirement for drilling and excavation services. The large scale economic repercussions of this trend are expected to be most evident in the Middle East region.

The COVID-19 outbreak severely hit the insulator market industry as manufacturers faced problems procuring requisite raw materials and components for insulate material production due to widespread supply chain disruptions which made delivering the end product also equally difficult.

Electrical wiring jobs both in the government and industrial sectors were suspended due to stringent lockdown mandates that brought global production facilities to a halt. This lack in component and device production also spiked product prices thereby lowering overall market demand. However, the  market is quickly normalising and experiencing a steady demand, especially from the industrial sector as the economies are gradually opening up. The insulator market research report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.

Competitive Landscape

The insulator market is experiencing implementations of several strategic approaches, such as expansion, collaboration, mergers & acquisitions, and product launches. Mature industry players are making strategic investments in Research and development activities and fostering their expansion plans.

The Key Players of Global Insulator Market are

  • General Electric (U.S.)

  • Siemens AG (Germany)

  • Alstom S.A (France)

  • Aditya Birla Nuvo Ltd. (India)

  • Bharat Heavy Electricals Limited (India)

  • Toshiba Corporation (Japan)

  • Hubbell Incorporated (U.S)

  • Seves Group (Italy)

  • Dalian Yilian Technology Co. Ltd. (China)

  • ELANTAS GmbH (Germany)

Recent Developments

On February 01, 2021, PPC Insulators announced a shift to tight gas-kilns with advanced thermal insulating materials and coatings. Porcelain insulators are green and ecological products for energy transmission and distribution and the possibility of using Bio-Methane is currently being studied with gas- suppliers.

Insulators are electrical components used for providing lining between two conductors. They are also used to provide mechanical support in their area of application. The chief function of an insulator is reducing electrical stress, and the environmental stress that occurs due to weather changes. These insulators are extremely vital for the Power Transmission & Distribution (T&D) infrastructure and hence, the global insulator market size grows in tandem with the global power industry ecosystem. The incessantly increasing demand for electricity, fuelled by the global rise in population and rapid industrialization, is the major factor adding momentum to the global insulator market share. The increasing need of reliable electric supply and subsequent investment in the transmission & distribution network to facilitate grid expansion and ensure safe electrical infrastructure is expected to drive the growth of the global market.

Insulator Market Growth Dynamics

Insulator Market Drivers

Major factors driving the insulator market trends upwards will be aging equipment, the ever-expanding gap between the demand and supply in electricity distribution – further heightened by COVID conditions – and an increasing emphasis on power generation for capacity addition. An increase in favourable legislative measures to promote unhindered electricity supply in the developing countries will further strengthen the insulator market value.

Insulator Market Growth Opportunities

A rapid increase in the smart home and smart city projects across the world will provide newer opportunities in insulator market growth. Rising demand for insulation materials from public sector, commercial sector, automotive & transportation sector and real estate and construction market will bolster the insulator market revenue. Moreover, emphasis on technology upgrades and rising and improving wireless communication technology for boosting smart lighting will also offer a plethora of growth opportunities to the insulator industry during the forecast period.

Ageing and conventional transmission & distribution networks hinder supply for continuous power supply and create a lucrative potential market for insulators in the developing economies.

Insulator Market Restraints

The high costs involved in upgrading existing T&D infrastructure will prove to be a major restraining factor for the insulator industry everywhere. Also, adding on to this factor will be the COVID-related slowdown that spiked the prices of raw materials and hindered growth during the year 2020.

Cumulative Growth Analysis

The insulator industry in the Asia-Pacific region is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Factors such as rapid industrialisation, urbanisation and high-paced economic growth will create a need for growing electrical infrastructure in the countries such as India and China, which will be seen driving insulator market revenues upwards.
