2016-2020 Gas Insulated Substation Market Outlook Compared to 2021-2031 Forecast

Driven by an increased focus on research and development and investment in the power generation sector, the gas insulated substation market will rise at 5.7% CAGR between 2021 and 2031 in comparison to 3.8% CAGR registered during 2016-2020.

Over the forecast period, the growing demand for small, low-maintenance power systems is expected to drive the market. In comparison to air-insulated substations, gas-insulated ones have higher efficiency and dependability.

Because gas-insulated substations require less area than their equivalents, rising per hectare land values are predicted to stimulate prospects for expansion. Due to their lower space use, these substations require 90% less area than other power plants, which enables growth in the market.

Market growth is predicted to be driven by rising energy consumption in emerging nations as a result of changing lifestyles and increasing per capita income. It is expected to gain traction in the market since it can be planted in a small space also it protects the environment using sulphur hexafluoride gas whereas Air-insulated substations are more likely to pollute the environment, whereas gas-insulated substations are more environmentally friendly.

Leading manufacturing companies are focusing on expanding their product offering and are employing omnichannel sales channels across various regional markets. To improve their revenue generation, companies are directly making contracts and proposal bidding with end-users and governments, which is helping them in revenue generation.

Rising safety concerns, reliability, and substation security are projected to fuel demand in the market in the coming years. Longer life spans and one-time investment requirements for gas insulated substations are expected to continue to drive the market.

Since the sulphur hexafluoride is a greenhouse gas, its use in substations can impact the market growth. However, its market is expected to grow at a higher rate owing to its advantages over other options.
