Global Pad-Mounted Switchgear (Air, Gas, Solid Dielectric) Market Report 2019-2024 -

DUBLIN--()--The "Pad-Mounted Switchgear Market by Type (Air, Gas, Solid Dielectric), Voltage (Up to 15 kV, 15-25 kV, 25-38 kV), Application (Industrial, Commercial, & Residential), Standard (IEC, IEEE), and Region - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The pad-mounted switchgear market is projected to reach USD 7.2 billion by 2024, at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2019 to 2024.

The growing investments in underground distribution to increase the reliability and stability of supply in developed countries are expected to drive the demand for pad-mounted switchgear. The functional and aesthetic advantages of underground distribution, along with improved reliability and decreased downtime, would further aid the growth of this market. The high installation cost of pad-mounted switchgear is a restraint for the growth of the pad-mounted switchgear market.

The global pad-mounted switchgear market is dominated by a few major players that have an extensive global and regional presence. The leading players in the pad-mounted switchgear market are Eaton (Ireland), Hubbell (US), Federal Pacific (US), S&C Electric (US), G&W Electric (US), ABB (Switzerland), and AZZ (US).

The IEC segment is expected to dominate the pad-mounted switchgear market in 2019

The IEC segment is expected to dominate the pad-mounted switchgear market in 2019, owing to the increasing installation of pad-mounted switchgear in various countries across the globe. The widespread adoption of IEC standard equipment in Europe is responsible for the dominance of the IEC standard in the pad-mounted switchgear market. Europe is one of the largest markets for pad-mounted switchgear. The increasing adoption of IEC as a standard for all the pad-mount switchgear installed in the region is leading to the market growth of the IEC standard pad-mounted switchgear.

The pad-mounted switchgear, the solid dielectric type is expected to grow at the highest rate during the forecast period

The solid dielectric segment is estimated to grow at the fastest rate of all segments during the forecast period. This growth can be attributed to the restrictions on sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). SF6 has the worst global warming potential of all gases and is largely emitted from the power sector. Increased restrictions on SF6 is expected to slow down the growth of gas-insulated switchgear and drive the market for SF6 alternatives. Solid dielectric is a better alternative to SF6, as the insulating medium is epoxy, which is inert and environmentally safe.

Europe is expected to lead the global pad-mounted switchgear market in terms of market size

Europe is currently the largest pad-mounted switchgear market, followed by North America and the Asia Pacific. Many utilities in Europe adopt underground distribution, given the advantages of underground distribution, especially in densely populated areas and hazardous locations. Many countries in Europe, such as the Netherlands, have a 100% underground distribution system. Europe is expected to be the biggest market for pad-mounted switchgear during the forecast period.
