Key Trends Shaping the Gas Insulated Switchgear Market Insights and Outlook

Market Overview

Gas-insulated switchgear (GIS) is a type of high-voltage electrical switchgear that uses an inert gas such as sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) as the insulating medium. GIS is typically used in transmission and distribution substations, as well as in industrial applications.

The global Gas Insulated Switchgear Market is expected to grow from USD 18,636.9 billion in 2021 to USD 42,998.8 billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 9.8% during the forecast period.

The growth of the GIS market is attributed to the increasing demand for electricity, rising investments in renewable energy, and growing urbanization.

The gas-insulated switchgear refers to a compact metal closed cabinet, which consists of high voltage components that include circuit breakers, disconnectors and relay switches.

In order to clean and break circuits in an electric system, sulphur hexafluoride is used to insulate these. By protecting the distribution mechanism by disengaging the system in the event of unfavourable conditions, it aids in energy transmission and integration of power generation to the grid. GIS is more dependable, eco-friendly, versatile, and maintenance-free than any other air-insulated switchgear.

These are installed in the extension of roofs, industrial plants and offshore platforms. There are a few main key players who operates the market in the competitive landscape. ABB, Alstom, Benchmarking, Bharat heavy electricals, Eaton corporation, general electric company, Hitachi, Larsen and Turbo, Mitsubishi electrical, Powell Industries, Siemens, Toshiba International etc.
