A recent report published by Infinium Global Research on gas-insulated substation market provides an in-depth analysis of segments and sub-segments in the global as well as regional gas-insulated substation market. The study also highlights the impact of drivers, restraints, and macro indicators on the global and regional gas-insulated substation market over the short term as well as long term. The report is a comprehensive presentation of trends, forecast and dollar values of the global gas-insulated substation market. According to the report, the global gas-insulated substation market is projected to grow at a healthy CAGR over the forecast period of 2019-2025.
Modern gas-insulated substation technology has undergone continuous development since its introduction. The focus on substation and switchgear that require less space is increased due to the rising focus on conserving the right of way and ensuring uninterrupted power supply. The technology, economics, and environmental sustainability all come together to create some very real design challenges for Gas-Insulated Substations (GIS) in the year 2016. Gas-insulated switchgear using substations must make the highest return on investment while provoking those challenges. This requires defeating overall cost, growing reliability, maintaining operational flexibility, and handling the environmental impact of their operations.
Growing population coupled with rapid industrialization and rising demand for efficient energy sources are the major growth factors of the gas-insulated substation market. Furthermore, factors such as dependable power source coupled with reduced geographical area and need of compact power source will stimulate market growth. Components of the gas-insulated substation include high-voltage conductors, circuit breakers, voltage transformers, current transformers and switches that are summarized in a single grounded metal enclosure that greatly reduces the size of the power plant and can be installed in most compact spaces. Sulphur Hexafluoride (SF6) is a major component due to superior dielectric properties than air-insulated substation. Rising environmental concerns and scarcity of land in cosmopolitan areas are fueling the growth of the gas-insulated substation market. However, High cost compared to traditional power substations restrains the growth of the market. Moreover, the development of an environment-friendly alternative to sf6 gas is anticipated to provide growth opportunities to the market players.
Geographically, Asia Pacific dominates the global gas-insulated substation market due to increasing energy demand in developing countries such as China, India, Thailand, Japan, Indonesia, and Vietnam. Japan was the leading country to install gas-insulated substations as the country has confined space for developments. North America has significant growth in the forecasted period owing to increasing investment in power infrastructural development in this region.
