Research: Global Share of Switchgear Market Predicted to Reach USD 156.8 Billion by 2022

According to the report, the global switchgear market was valued at USD 89.9 billion in 2016 and is expected to reach USD 156.8 billion in 2022, growing at a CAGR of 9.7% between 2017 and 2022.

In modern power system network, switchgear protection plays an essential role right from generation through transmission to distribution end. In an electric power system, switchgear is the arrangement of electrical switches, fuses or circuits breakers need to control protect and isolate electrical equipment. The function of carrying, making and breaking the normal load current similar to a switch has been performed by switchgear and it also has to carry out the function of clearing the faults. The device utilized for controlling switching and protecting the equipment and electrical circuits is known as switchgear. In addition to that switchgear also has the provision of metering and regulating the various parameters of the electrical power system. This type of equipment is directly related to the reliability of the electricity supply
