The market research analysis categorizes the T&D equipment market in Europe into three major product segments. They are:

  • Power cables
  • Transformers
  • Switchgear

T&D equipment market in Europe by power cables

The power cables segment accounted for the largest market share of the transmission and distribution market in Europe. This is primarily due to the high number of grid interconnections among countries and the high renewable power generation in the region.

Grid interconnection projects are promoted to create an integrated energy market and to enhance the security of energy supply. In these projects, high loads of electricity will be transferred from one European country to another, in turn, driving the demand for power cables in the region.

“Europe is the leader for offshore wind power generation in the world, and these wind farms are located miles away from the grid requiring power to be transmitted over long distances, which drives the need for power cables in the region,” says Thanikachalam.

T&D equipment market in Europe by transformers

Key markets for transformers in Europe include Germany, France, and the UK. Renewable energy sources are well-established and well-integrated into electricity grids in Europe. For the past decade, power utilities in Europe have profoundly adopted the wind, solar, hydro, and other forms of renewable energy sources. Also, the region is also home to well-defined T&D infrastructure. Therefore, the transformers market in Europe is expected to witness steady growth. Technavio expects most of the market demand to stem from renovation activities.

T&D equipment market in Europe by switchgear

The demand for switchgear is primarily fueled by the growing urbanization and industrialization across Europe. Consumers need a reliable and uninterrupted power supply to operate various day-to-day electrical as well as electronic appliances. Reliability of such devices is ensured through proper functioning of the overall electric network. Switchgear is installed not only in the power utilities but also in various industrial and commercial units. Therefore, the market can be expected to grow at a robust pace during the forecast period.

The top vendors highlighted by Technavio’s energy market research analysts in this report are:

  • ABB
  • General Cable
  • Nexans
  • Prysmian
  • Siemens
