The high voltage segment will continue to dominate the gas-insulated substation market, by voltage type, during the forecast period

The gas-insulated substation market is segmented, by voltage type, into medium, high, and extra high. The high voltage segment held the largest market share in 2018. This can be attributed to its reliability and protection for the grid infrastructure. High voltage gas-insulated substations are used widely for critical switchyard of large power generation plants. A majority of the gas-insulated substations connected to the high voltage transmission grid are of indoor types. The high voltage segment is also driven by the refurbishment of old power transmission infrastructure in the developed countries of Europe and North America.

The outdoor segment is growing at the fastest rate in the gas-insulated substation market

The gas-insulated substation market is segmented, by installation, into indoor and outdoor. The outdoor segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Outdoor gas-insulated substations provide reliable operations in high-voltage transmission and medium voltage and are preferred for transmission & distribution of electricity over a long distance. These gas-insulated substations are designed to be used in outdoor environments. The enclosure is constructed so that the apparatus can be protected from harsh environmental conditions, including possible contamination. Outdoor substations operate above 5 kV voltage range. Thus, with the increase in demand for electricity, that is, the increase in high load transmission is expected to drive the outdoor installation of gas-insulated substations.

Asia Pacific will continue to dominate the gas-insulated substations market through 2023

The gas-insulated substation market has been analyzed with respect to six regions, namely, North America, Europe, South America, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East & Africa. Asia Pacific is estimated to be the largest gas-insulated substation market from 2018 to 2023, followed by the Middle East & Africa.

Factors such as increasing power consumption, rising influx of renewable sources in the energy mix, government mandates on energy efficiency, renovation, modernization, and upgrade of aging hydropower plants driving the gas-insulated substation industry in Asia Pacific. The extending generation connections in Asia Pacific is another major driver for expanding investments in the transmission & distribution network in this region.
