The report covers drivers and trends of switchgear, transformer (power and distribution) and transmission & distribution cables market. The report also includes pricing analysis for switchgear and transformer market and competitive analysis data for each product type. The report also provides technical characteristics and benefits of smart grid technology. This report is built using data and information sourced from proprietary databases, primary and secondary research, and in-house analysis by GBI Research's team of industry experts.

Aging equipment provide opportunity for replacement market

The installed base of transmission and distribution equipment in many countries either has exceeded or is nearing their recommended operational life. Such conditions provide good prospects for the replacement market. There are possibilities for switchgears and transformers to explode if at all they fail, causing potential damage to other equipment, facility and environment. This may involve liabilities such as compensation, environmental clean-ups, and legal action. Presently, the nature of the load has changed to a large extent, mainly due to growth of electronic equipment that is being used. Therefore, in order to ensure high power quality, improved efficiency, and to meet the load demands, the existing aged equipment will have to be replaced. Catastrophic failure of switchgears and transformers will end up in a disastrous situation for the utility. The low investment in recent years in transmission and distribution is expected to be short lived, as there is a growing concern among power generating companies and utilities regarding switchgear failures.
