Transfer Switch Market Trends




  • The rapid rate of industrialisation and urbanisation drives market growth




Market CAGR for transfer switch is being driven by the rapid industrialisation and urbanization. In this era of rapid modernisation adoption, people are rapidly urbanising. Adoption of cutting-edge and innovative technology is increasing in rural and impoverished areas. As a result of the fast development of urbanisation around the world, a large number of structures, including residential buildings and commercial infrastructures, are being developed over a large region. Furthermore, a significant number of people are migrating from rural to urban areas, necessitating the construction of new houses and transfer switches. This is due to the fact that activating these lights, lamps, and other electronic equipment necessitates the usage of controllers.


Aside from the necessity of maintaining a consistent supply of energy, an automatic switch provides the quickest means of transitioning from utilities feed to generator feed. Businesses can let the switchover to occur automatically rather than seeking for manual switches after the lights go out, which is the only condition that entirely protects a facility from the visible effects of a power outage and allows the business to run smoothly. If users operate a small business and the generator is located in a convenient utility room, using a manual switch may not be a problem.


However, during main power grid outages, automatic transfer switches are employed to shift power from the utility feed to the onsite backup generator. As a result, unexpected power outages and brownouts have raised demand for dependable and efficient backup power sources such as generators and UPS systems, which will positively impact the growth of the automatic transfer switches market during the projection period.


For instance, Generac introduced an Automatic Transfer Switch with built-in home energy monitoring. The introduction of the PWRview ATS draws attention to the switch's Home Energy Monitoring System (HEMS). It enables a home with a backup generator to gain significant, immediate money-saving insights into the home's energy consumption. Thus, driving the Transfer Switch Market revenue.


Transfer Switch Market Segment Insights:


Transfer Switch Type Insights


The Transfer Switch Market segmentation, based on type includes manual transfer switch and automatic transfer switch. In 2022, the manual transfer switch segment generated more than three-fifths of the transfer switch market, with the highest market share by type. This is because manual transfer switches are commonly used to switch loads between power sources. Using break-before-make switching sequences, these switches efficiently shift loads between utility and backup power sources. They enable houses, business buildings, and industrial enterprises to make the most of their available resources by connecting to temporary or supplemental generators.

Transfer Switch Energy Insights


The Transfer Switch Market segmentation, based on energy, includes low (less than 300A), medium (300a-1600a), high (more than 1600a). Low (less than 300A) segment accounted for a significant portion of the market in 2019 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of more than 8.0% during the forecast period. Low voltage energy are used to distribute electricity at various places across a data centre.


Transfer Switch Application Insights


The Transfer Switch Market segmentation, based on application, includes residential, commercial, and industrial. The industrial category held the biggest market share in 2022 and is expected to increase at an 8.5% CAGR during the forecast period. The increase can be due to increased demand for remote monitoring and controlling applications from manufacturing sectors such as automotive, electronics, pharmaceuticals, and food and beverages. Smart technology adoption is also helping to the growth of this market, as it provides numerous benefits such as enhanced safety and efficiency, reduced downtime, and lower maintenance costs.


Transfer Switch Transition Mode Insights


The Transfer Switch Market segmentation, based on transition mode, includes open transition mode, closed transition mode, soft load transition mode, delayed transition mode. In 2022, closed transition mode segment had a sizable market share. A switching device with a closed transition has no open circuit between its input and output. It can be utilised in automatic transfer switches to prevent linked electronics from high voltage surge damage. The main benefit of adopting closed transition is that there are no exposed parts, making it safe to use around other electrical equipment such as motors, transformers, and so on. This reduces the possibility of being impacted by electric shock or electrocution.


Transfer Switch Regional Insights


By region, the study provides the market insights into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World. In 2022, North America dominated the market with a 45% share. North America is predicted to develop significantly at a CAGR of 5.5% over the projection period. Because of the growing need to replace existing grid infrastructure, the United States controlled more than 70% of the North American transfer switch market.


Further, the major countries studied in the market report are The US, Canada, German, France, the UK, Italy, Spain, China, Japan, India, Australia, South Korea, and Brazil.
