DUBLIN, December 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.


The global GIS market to grow at a CAGR of 10.06% over the period 2015-2019.

This report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global GIS market during the period 2015-2019. For ascertaining the market size and vendor share, the report considers revenue generated from the sales of GIS equipment.

Global GIS Market 2015-2019 covers the market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

The gas can escalate global warming and this has increased the need to replace the gas with an alternative medium. The n2/SF6 mixture acts as a good insulation medium even at low SF6 content. The dielectric strength of N2/SF6 is equivalent to pure SF6 at a moderate pressure increase. However, the arc quenching ability of N2/SF6 at current zero and current interruption performance is poor in this mixture. This mixture can be only used in high voltage equipment without switching to devices such as a gas-insulated line.

According to the report, in recent years, air-insulated switchgear (AIS) has many limitations, which is why end-users are switching to gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). Most of the end-user companies operating in developing countries are shifting from AIS to GIS, which will drive the market during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that harmful effects of SF6 is affecting the growth of the market.
