Vacuum Interrupter Market Size, Trends & Analysis - Forecasts to 2026 By Rated Voltage (0-15 kV, 15-30 kV, Above 30kV), By Application (Circuit Breaker, Contactor, Recloser, Load Break Switch, Tap Changer, and Others), By End-User (Utilities, Oil & Gas, Mining, Transportation, Others [Commercial Establishments: Social & Educational Institutions, Hospitals, Storage Facilities, Hotels, and Shopping Complexes]), By Region (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and Central & South America).
The vacuum interrupter is an eco-friendly substitute of Sulphur hexafluoride and is used for repetitive switching, fault protection, motor inrush current interruption, overcurrent, and short circuit protection. The vacuum interrupters have also reduced the power wastage and have curbed the cost incurred by the end-users due to energy loss during the transmission.
The market growth is expected to trend upwards. The major factors driving the growth of this market include the rising industrialization & urbanization, expansion of transmission & distribution network, construction of new infrastructure with the modernization of old electric systems in buildings, the steady shift of the market from gas interrupters to gas-free interrupters to reduce the greenhouse gas effect and increasing investment in the power generation infrastructure and smart grid technologies.
Given the voltage, the market can be split into 15-30 kV, 0-15 kV, and above 30 kV. The 0-15 kV segment is observed to be the dominating domain in this market. The driver of this domination can be the extensive applications of electric interrupter switch of this voltage range in electricity distribution substations and industries such as oil & gas and mining.
As per the study based on the application, the market can be sectioned into a circuit breaker, contactor, recloser, load break switch, tap changer, others. The circuit breaker segment is estimated to dominate the market due to increasing demand for electric power transmission, increasing investment in renewable energy projects, rising manufacturing industries, and infrastructural development in the developing countries.
The end-user can be segmented into oil & gas, utilities, transportation, mining, and others. The utility domain would be growing rapidly in this market. The segment’s growth can be attributed to the rising demand for new electrical gadgets, the shift from an agrarian economy to the industrial and service sector economy and the limitless need for electricity and utility services
Based on the region, the Asia Pacific region is estimated to be the dominating region in the market because of the ongoing development and urbanization. The growth of this region is also expected to stay strong due to the increasing investment in the power generation infrastructure, smart grid technologies as well as renewable energy generated in this region that would help the market innovations to happen in the forecast period [2021-2026].
