The ring main unit market is expected to reach USD 2.03 Billion by 2020, at a CAGR of 8.23% from 2015 to 2020. The growth of the market is attributed to modernization of existing infrastructure and huge electricity demand in developing countries. Investments for renewable power generation in Asia-Pacific countries have been planned to meet the rising power demand. These investments in turn are going to boost the demand for ring main units.

Among various applications for which ring main units are employed, the distribution utilities segment is expected to be the largest market. This segment is also expected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period, due to increasing investments in the power sector in Asia-Pacific to augment generation capacities to meet the growing power demand in the region. Meanwhile, developing economies in Asia-Pacific and Africa comprise fast growth markets for the distribution utilities segment.

Gas insulated is the largest segment among the type of ring main units. The gas insulated ring main unit market is expected to have the second highest growth from 2015 to 2020, owing to increasing application of gas insulated ring main units in power grids, underground installations, wind power plants, and mining applications. The gas insulated ring main unit market is expected to witness the maximum growth in the Asia-Pacific region.

Asia-Pacific is expected to be the largest market for ring main unit during the forecast period; it is expected to exhibit the highest CAGR from 2015 to 2020. There has been growing power demand in Asia-Pacific, as a result of which, substantial investments have been made in the region to augment power generation capacities. These investments are expected to further boost the demand for ring main units. Countries such as Vietnam, Malaysia, and Japan are driving the ring main unit market in Asia-Pacific. Asia-Pacific has some of the key companies including Larsen & Toubro (India) and LSIS (South Korea).

Ring Main Unit Market

The cost of ring main units is more as compared to conventional switchgears. Hence, several utilities and other distribution centers prefer conventional switchgears over ring main units due to their low cost. Conventional switchgear increases the usage of distribution cables and lines in a ring network, while ring main units have added benefits, such as reduced number of cables and supply from two sources. Therefore, high cost of ring main units as compared to conventional switchgear is a factor that is restraining the growth of the market. Additionally, the energy cost is declining with addition of low-cost energy production in renewables. As a result, the profit margins of distribution utilities has reduced, thereby forcing service providers to cut investments in modernized power equipment, such as ring main unit. The top five players in the ring main unit market are ABB Ltd. (Switzerland), Eaton Corporation Plc. (Ireland), Schneider Electric SE (France), General Electric Company (U.S.), and Siemens AG (Germany).
