The global ring main unit market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.35% from 2017 to 2022, to reach a market size of USD 2.45 Billion by 2022. This growth is attributed to modernization of existing power 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.

The report segments the ring main unit market on the basis of installation, into outdoor and indoor. The outdoor segment is projected to dominate the ring main unit market and is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period.

The ring main unit market is segmented based on type, into gas insulated, air insulated, oil insulated, and solid dielectric insulated. The gas insulated segment accounted for the largest market size in 2016. This segment is expected to grow at the fastest growth rate from 2017 to 2022, owing to increasing application of gas insulated ring main units in power grids, underground installations, wind power plants, and mining applications. Moreover, gas insulated ring main units are compact in size and have better functionality compared to other types of ring main units. The gas insulated ring main unit market is expected to witness the maximum growth in the Asia-Pacific region.

The report segments the ring main unit market on the basis of application into distribution utilities, industries, and infrastructure & transportation. The distribution utilities sub-segment accounted for the largest market share in 2016. 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.

In this report, the ring main unit market has been analyzed with respect to six regions, namely, Asia-Pacific, Europe, North America, the Middle East, South America, and Africa. Asia-Pacific is projected to dominate the global ring main unit market by 2022 and is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2017 to 2022. 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 boost the demand for ring main units. Countries such as India, 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 the addition of low-cost energy production in renewables. As a result, the profit margins of distribution utilities have reduced, thereby, forcing service providers to cut investments in modernized power equipment, such as ring main unit.

Leading players in the ring main unit market include ABB (Switzerland), Schneider Electric SE (France), Eaton Corporation, PLC (Ireland), Siemens AG (Germany), and General Electric Company (U.S.). Contracts & agreements was the strategy most commonly adopted by top players in the market from 2013 to 2017. It was followed by expansions, new product developments, and mergers & acquisitions.
