Switchgears Market By Voltage (Low, Medium and High Voltage), By End Use (Transmission & Distribution Utilities, Manufacturing & Process Industries, Commercial & Residential Infrastructure) - Growth, Future Prospects And Competitive Analysis, 2017 - 2025

In the field of electrical engineering, an electric switchgear is defined as a combination of devices which include switches, fuses, isolators, circuit breakers, relays, control panels, lightning arrestors, current transformers and potential transformers, among others. The switchgear is typically used to detect faults and disconnects the corrupted section from the circuit to prevent any possible damage to the system. The switchgear equipment is essentially concerned with switching and interrupting currents either under normal or abnormal operating conditions. The use of switchgears, instead of fuse, offers superior benefits such as reliability, certain detection of faulty circuits, quick operation and provision of manual control. Owing to the aforementioned merits switchgears have been extensively used to protect electrical equipment for a variety of electrical end-users.

Switchgear protection plays a vital role in every step of modern day electrical system such as generation, transmission, and distribution. It prevents the loss of expensive electrical equipment from a variety of electrical abnormalities including over current, short circuit and any other faults in the system. Switchgears are available in a wide range, rating, and variety depending on the applications. Apart from power system networks, switchgears are also extensively used for industrial works, industrial projects, domestic and commercial buildings, marine applications and mining, among others. With growing trend of electrical network up-gradation, growing infrastructure for non-conventional energy systems and establishment of smart electric grids, switchgears provide a very crucial aid in the field of electrical system automation. Consequently, the demand for switchgears is expected to grow consistently with the smart grid applications across the globe.
