Market outlook of the LV and MV switchgear market

Technavio€™s research analyst predicts the global LV and MV switchgear market to grow steadily at a CAGR of around 10% during the forecast period. Expansion and renovation of T&D projects globally are the primary growth drivers for this market. The growing demand for electricity has resulted in a manifold increase in the number of new T&D setups.

Currently, the market is witnessing a shift from conventional to innovative modular switchgear devices. The conventional air-insulated switchgear (AIS) consists of components such as circuit breakers, disconnectors, and current transformers that are difficult to install as they require individual installation spaces. On the other hand, modular switchgear integrates all the functions into the breaking chamber of the circuit breaker.  Further product innovation and ease of installation are likely to provide a significant impetus to this market over the next four years.
