The gas-insulated substation market is expected to grow from an estimated USD 18.9 billion in 2018 to USD 29.5 billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 9.27%. Rising energy demand and space constraints in densely populated urban areas are likely to drive the gas-insulated substation market.
On the basis of end user, the power transmission utility segment is expected to hold the largest share of the market
The power transmission utility segment is projected to grow at the second highest CAGR during the forecast period. Power transmission utility is primarily driven by the addition of transmission lines which leads to the addition of high voltage substations. Gas- insulated switchgear plays a vital role in grid protection and efficient flow of power, as well as protection and relaying of the transmission circuit. High voltage transmission and extra high voltage transmission lies under the jurisdiction of the power transmission utilities. These utilities are responsible for the transmission grid expansion, refurbishment, as well as procurement of high voltage equipment.
The medium voltage segment is expected to be the fastest-growing segment of the gas-insulated substation market, by voltage type, during the forecast period.
The medium voltage gas-insulated substation is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2018 to 2023. The market is primarily driven due to the rapid improvement in the power distribution sector through the implementation of smart grid and smart metering technology. This equipment is mainly used by the core sector, power generation, infrastructure, transportation, and distribution system industries. The medium voltage gas insulated substation segment is sub-divided into primary distribution and secondary distribution
