Region :Global | Report ID: FBI103930 | Status : Ongoing



Hybrid switchgear is basically the embodiment of two different technologies, namely, AIS (Air-Insulated Switchgear) and SF6. This switchgear combines the components of both traditional AIS and SF6 GIS (Gas-Insulated Switchgear) equipment. One technology is used for arc quenching purposes, while an air-insulation alternative is adopted for busbars to be connected to other equipment present in a high voltage substation. It is distinguished through a compact modular design that confines different variable functions in one module. The key benefits of hybrid switchgear comprise of exponentially low equipment cost, reduction in the surface area, making them a compact and easy extension.

The challenging era of the 21st century requires a rapid need for increasing energy recourse, which is where hybrid switchgear comes to aid. Hybrid switchgear help to bridge the gap to the hardcore requirements such as high reliability, simplified layout, minimal maintenance costs, environmental efficiency, and other vital factors.

On the basis of application, the hybrid switchgear market is segregated into commercial, industrial, and others. The industrial segment is likely to represent the primary share of the market. In the industrial sector, the deficiency of space is a major problem, which is why, as hybrid switchgear occupies a minimum amount, they are so in demand.

Based on the type, the market can be primarily divided into up to 72.5 kV, 72.5 – 245 kV, and above 245 kV. The up to 72.5 kV segment constitutes minimal integrated functional modules and offers a compact design that can be concisely installed in small spaces without any difficulties. The 72.5kV – 245 kV type is likely to witness significant growth owing to its extensive features, including combined earthing switches & disconnectors, voltage transformers, and sensors to provide efficient plug-in cable options.

Substation modularization via hybrid switchgear provides time as well as cost-efficiency along with almost fifty percent less fuel consumption and low atmospheric contamination. The integration of AIS (which requires high standards of preservation) and GIS (which require low maintenance standards) results in substantially reduced tag-free costs to hybrid switchgear is set to boost the demand for advanced products.

The demerits of hybrid switchgear for operational purposes are their high initial capital costs as a result of the combination between AIS and GIS, and all the technological spread such as sensors, transformers, compact size, etc.

Regional Analysis

To gain extensive insights into the market, Request for Customization

The global hybrid switchgear market is branched as North America, Asia Pacific, Europe, the Middle East & Africa, and Latin America. Currently, Asia Pacific is set to account for a substantial share of the global industry size. The growth of the regional market can be majorly attributed to hefty investments in transmission and distribution infrastructure to fulfill the augmenting energy demands. China, in particular, is investing heavily in its distribution network and revamping its aging hydropower plants, which have substantially raised the demand for more efficient products across the country. North America is likely to follow the market closely owing to substantial investments being made on the upgradation of the long-standing infrastructure, which will catapult the growth of the market. In Europe, Germany is set to emerge as a key contributor to the switchgear market and is propelled by the initiation of new and innovative products, designed for extensive high capacity applications like railway transmission system.
