Sulfur Hexafluoride Market - Overview

Sulfur hexafluoride is a non-toxic inert gas that is widely used for insulation and cooling application in the electric & power industry owing to its superior thermal stability and excellent dielectric strength. Sulfur hexafluoride has key applications in electric power transmission and distribution systems such as gas insulated switchgear (GIS), circuit breakers (CBs), and load break switches due to properties of electrical insulation and arc interruption capability.

Based on application, the electrical transmission and distribution segment held a major share of the global sulfur hexafluoride market in 2017 owing to the increase in electricity consumption, led by increasing demand for electricity from residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.Rising demand for homes and infrastructure development, especially in emerging economies such as India and China has propelled the need for power utilities.

This trend is likely to continue during the forecast period.

In terms of value and volume, Asia Pacific accounted for a prominent share of the global sulfur hexafluoride market in 2017.The region is expected to continue to dominate the global market during the forecast period.

China is a highly lucrative country for sulfur hexafluoride in Asia Pacific.Rapid urbanization due to rise in demand for power utilities in the country and presence of a well-established semiconductor manufacturing industry are anticipated to fuel the sulfur hexafluoride market in China during the forecast period.

Demand for end-use applications in the electronics industry has been increasing mainly in countries such as Taiwan, South Korea, Malaysia, and Thailand.This, in turn, is projected to fuel the sulfur hexafluoride market during the forecast period.

Sulfur hexafluoride is likely to be phase-out due to its high GWP value by developed nations in North America and Europe in the near future. However, a direct alternative for sulfur hexafluoride in key applications such as medium voltage switchgears is not commercially available. Hence, the market is projected to expand at a sluggish pace during the forecast period.

Sulfur hexafluoride has global warming potential (GWP) of 23500 for 100 years. Therefore, rise in environmental concerns and regulations to control greenhouse effects are anticipated to restrain the global sulfur hexafluoride market during the forecast period.
