NEW YORK, Aug. 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The report surveys the markets and producers of switchgear, and contains 93 charts and 51 table in 171 pages. The report establishes three segments for the total switchgear market of approx. $116 billion in 2014 at ex-factory prices, with its main focus on the $29 billion top tier of HV & MV segment, defined as the market for switchgear components rated 1 kV and over. The market is sized at ex-factory cost and installed cost. Although this report is concerned with the HV/MV segment of switchgear some overall figures are included to illustrate the position of the HV/MV segment within the total switchgear population, in terms of market size and product categories. The following product categories are included - Circuit Breakers, Panelboards, Protection Relays, Disconnectors, Fuses, Switches, Lightening arresters, Isolators and Other Switchgear Apparatus. The report contains surveys of the regional markets and those of the major countries. The largest regional market is in Asia Pacific, dominated by China, Japan, Korea, India and Indonesia and amounting to $12 billion (ex-factory cost) in 2014, or 42.4% of the global total. The United States is the second largest national market. The fastest growing market will be the Middle East, at 7.7% real growth and 15.3% in nominal value.
Production is anlaysed and Europe is the world leader, providing 26.8% of global output in 2014, although China is the largest individual producing country with a 20.3% share. At the top end switchgear production is more regionally concentrated than transformer production. Because of its complexity, advanced EHV and HV switchgear is still produced predominanlty in Europe, North America and Japan. Both China and India produce HV circuit breakers but do not have the same manufacturing capabilities as for HV transformers. We predict that demand for switchgear will increase in terms of units for some years. However, reports from authorities such as World Bank, IMF and national industry associations are all broadly in agreement that input commodity prices will decline at least until end of 2015 and will rise slowly in the following few years. The report shows PPI (producer price index) forecasts and factors affecting producer prices - input cost including commodity prices, labour and energy - production capacity and demand aer analysed. The report comntains detailed anaysis of the installed population of circuit breakers and demand trends by technology - DTB Bulk Oil, LTB Minimum Oil, Air Blast, Vacuum, SF6 GIS, SF6 AIS Live Tank, SF6 AIS Dead Tank. The adoptionof these technologueis in the HV and MV segments is plotted to establish the current composition of the switchgear population.
