Increasing Implementation of High Voltage Transmission Lines Is Driving the Gas Circuit Breaker Market

Globally, the gas circuit breaker market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 5.0% during the forecast period from 2019 to 2027, starting from US$600.5 Mn in 2018. Gas circuit breakers consist of sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), which interrupts electric currents when a fault is detected and helps protect the electrical power stations and distribution systems. In addition, gas circuit breakers have various advantages over conventional methods as these systems do not need to be replaced. However, they can be reset to resume usual operations. This feature is the primary factor that has increased the adoption of gas circuit breakers across the globe.

Globally, government projects focusing on high-voltage transmission lines are growing at a rapid pace. These projects mainly focus on developing the existing electrical lines and energy transmission systems. In addition, the demand for high voltage substations is increasing rapidly, driving this market's growth. Furthermore, technological advancements and improvisation in transmission grids' growing implementation of gas circuit breakers of ultra-high voltage used outdoors for numerous industrial applications are likely to boost the growth of the overall gas circuit breaker market during the forecast period. Furthermore, growing industrialization and urbanization are offering significant growth opportunities to the key players operating in the gas circuit breakers market.
