Earthing Switches Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Type (Independent Earthing Switches, Combined Earthing Switches), By Application (Railway Electrification, Transmission and Distribution, Power Generation, Others) And Regional Forecast, 2024-2032

Region :Global | Report ID: FBI105970 | Status : Ongoing



The earthing switch is a safety device and an integral part of the medium voltage switchgear. After removing the circuit breaker, the circuit can be grounded by operating this earthing switch. Earthing switches are usually used in conjunction with isolators. When the isolator isolates the circuit, the earthing switch will ensure that any residual charge accumulated is discharged.

According to type, the earthing switches market is divided into independent earthing switches and combined earthing switches. The independent segment is expected to grow during the forecast period. This is due to their effectiveness in power supply and cost-effectiveness as well. An independent earthing switch provides a zero voltage reference, free from voltages that may be present in the bonded earthing system of the installation, which is preferred for the correct identification of polarity. These advantages will drive the segment during the forecast period.

The earthing switches market is divided into railway electrification, transmission and distribution, power generation, and others according to the application. The transmission and distribution segment will dominate the market during the forecast period. Earthing switches are usually used and installed in medium voltage switchgear, making the transmission and distribution segment significant. The capacity range of these switches is 20-100 kV and can carry continuous load current with a short-time withstanding of fault current. These features enhance the segment growth during the forecast period.

Rapid industrialization, coupled with the significant growth of the construction industry in recent years, are critical factors in creating a positive outlook for the market. With the increasing construction of commercial and residential buildings, roads, tunnels, manufacturing plants, and railways, especially in developing countries, there is a growing demand for efficient earthing equipment. Earthing in buildings is essential to protect residents, machines, and appliances from electrical surges and dissipate short-circuit currents. In addition, various technological advancements, such as the integration of consumer electronics with artificial intelligence and the internet of things, are becoming other growth drivers.

If a building is not appropriately earthed, it may lead to an electric shock disaster. Earthing switch requires ground connection to work. If the connection between the wire and the grounding pole is poor or not connected, the electrical fault can make the building or electrical appliances "live" because the current flows to the ground. Earthing switches can also have a low power factor. They require additional equipotential bonding, which adds to the cost. In case of instability issues like insulation failure, the short-circuit current is very high, which may cause equipment damage or electromagnetic interference. These limitations will hinder the market growth

Regional Analysis:

The earthing switches market is studied across North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa. North America accounts for the largest share of the earthing switch market. The market in this region is mainly driven by technological advancements in the electrical equipment industry. The U.S. is expected to become the largest consumer of earthing equipment. In North America, the U.S. has the largest market share in terms of value and volume. Major grounding equipment manufacturing companies such as Emerson Electric, G.E., and Harger Lightning & Grounding are located in the area.

However, the Asia-Pacific region is expected to experience peak growth rates during the forecast period. Although most companies are located in the United States, the market demand for earthing switches in Asia-Pacific has seen overwhelming growth. Companies outside of the United States now do business in India and China, offering tax incentives and reducing manufacturing costs.

Key Industry Developments

  • In April 2021, Siemens Energy won a contract to supply ten SF6-free gas-insulated earthing switchgear (GIS) to the Finnish transmission system operator Fingrid. This will be the first GIS in Finland to use "clean air" to replace SF6 as the most powerful greenhouse gas in the world.

  • Schneider launched the Easy9 Compact earthing switch system in 2021. It is the most flexible residential solution on the market. The unit is compact in nature, maintaining the simple design of the series on a smaller scale. The compact size and low-profile lid enable homeowners and electricians to position the solution where needed and meet any aesthetic needs. The curved shape, white finish, and simple markings ensure that the device blends seamlessly with the surrounding environment.
