The electric enclosure market is expected to grow from USD 6.15 Billion in 2018 to USD 7.91 Billion by 2023, at a CAGR of 6.27%. Key factors driving the growth of the electric enclosure market are the demand for Industrial Internet of things (IIoT) enabled enclosures, the growing demand for hygienic enclosures in food & beverages industry, and the adoption of intelligent transport systems (ITS) in the transportation vertical. Key industry players adopt organic and inorganic growth strategies such as product launches and developments, mergers and acquisitions, expansions, agreements, collaborations, joint ventures, and partnerships to drive the growth of the market.

Major electric enclosure manufacturers have a tight control on the pricing of the products, which is forcing other manufacturers to reduce the price of products to remain in competition. The electric enclosure industry will witness healthy product development programs and innovations in the coming years.

Among various applications, the power generation & distribution industry is expected to account for the largest size of the overall electric enclosure market between 2018 and 2023. Electric enclosures are used in the power generation & distribution industry in substations to protect critical components and circuitry. Electric enclosures used in oil & gas, metals & mining, and pulp & paper industries are rugged in design and should be able to withstand harsh environmental conditions. Over the past few years, oil & gas products have witnessed strong demand from developing nations. Such continuously increasing demand for oil & gas products is expected to drive the electric enclosure market.

Nonmetallic enclosures are gaining rapid acceptance in oil & gas and metals & mining verticals. This is due to increasing research & development of nonmetallic materials for enclosure application. Extensive research and product development has enabled manufacturers to introduce several new nonmetallic products with favorable and necessary features, which are making nonmetallic enclosures gain acceptance for critical applications.

Electric Enclosure Market

APAC is expected to hold the largest size of the electric enclosure market during the forecast period. Major factors driving the market in APAC are the increased investment in the power generation & distribution sector in China and India. An addition of vast rail and road network will also be a major boost for the electric enclosure market in the region.

Rittal (Germany), Schneider (France), Pentair (UK), Emerson (US), Eaton (US), Hammond (Canada), ABB (Switzerland), Hubbell (US), and Fibox (Finland) are the major players operating in the electric enclosure market.
