Gas insulated switchgear is used in power systems, to control, protect, and isolate electrical equipment, such as circuit breakers, voltage and current transformers, disconnectors and earthing switches, control & protection device, and other supporting elements such as SF6 bushings and cable terminations among others. These equipment are enclosed in a metal chamber with SF6 gas insulation that has high dielectric properties and two to three times the insulating ability of air at the same pressure.

The global gas insulated switchgear market is projected to reach USD 24.6 Billion by 2020, and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 9.9% from 2015 to 2020. The demand is mainly driven in the Asia-Pacific region, owing to increasing manufacturing & processing growth. The Asia-Pacific gas insulated switchgear market is majorly held by transmission & distribution end-user segment, with a share of more than 50% in 2014. With the increasing activities in renewable energy generation in GCC (Gulf Cooperation Council) countries, the GCC gas insulated switchgear market is projected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the forecast period. Existing huge manufacturing & processing sector and growing power generation segment are creating opportunities for gas insulated switchgear in the region.

Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) Market

Market Ecosystem:

The gas insulated switchgear market ecosystem starts with raw material suppliers that offer materials including SF6 gas, enclosed chambers, and dielectric coatings. These suppliers also include suppliers of raw materials/sub-assemblies for gas insulated switchgear, such as circuit breakers, disconnecting/earthing switches, current/voltage transformers, busbar/feeders, lightning/surge arresters, and other connecting elements, which include SF6 air bushings, the enclosures for the cable terminations, and the enclosures for the transformer terminals.

The equipment used in the gas insulated switchgears are mostly manufactured by the gas insulated switchgear manufacturers themselves. All the components are then assembled in the later stage. Gas insulated switchgear is then distributed to different end-users segment that include power generation, transmission & distribution, manufacturing & processing, and infrastructure & transportation.

The global gas insulated switchgear market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.9% during the forecast period, to reach USD 24.6 Billion by 2020. This growth is attributed to efficiency and reliability of gas insulated switchgear, with less space constraints and low maintenance. All components of gas insulated switchgear can be safely operated in confined spaces, where SF6 is used as an insulating material, as it has higher dielectric strength relative to air. SF6 gas has hundred times better arc quenching property and two to three times the insulating ability than air. Gas insulated switchgear is preferred over the conventional air insulated switchgear, where space is limited, such as extensions, offshore platforms, mountains & valley regions, and prevents the high-voltage equipment inside the chamber from environmental pollution, ultimately reducing the substation footprint by 10% of the conventional system.

The report segments gas insulated switchgear market on the basis of major end-users, which include transmission & distribution, manufacturing & processing, infrastructure & transportation, and power generation. Infrastructure & transportation is the fastest growing end-user segment for gas insulated switchgear market. Globally, infrastructure & transportation activities are increasing, which demands more electricity for operations and maintenance. Many technological trends are changing at locations, such as airports, sea ports, or traction substations, which are growing concerns for the end-user. End-users are focused on using efficient equipment, as well as less power consuming and environment-friendly devices, such as frequency converters, gas insulated switchgears.

Gas insulated switchgear is commonly segmented on the basis of type: high voltage and medium voltage gas insulated switchgear. This is done on the basis of voltage rating capacity of gas insulated switchgear.
