Global Laminated Busbar Market - 2022-2029
The global Laminated busbar market size was worth US$ XX million in 2021 and is estimated to reach US$ XX million by 2029, growing at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period (2022-2029).
Busbars are metal structures, often made of copper or aluminum and are used to carry and direct large amounts of current in an electrical distribution system. Busbars distribute alternating current (AC) power to circuit breakers. Busbars reduce costs, increase reliability and help maximize system performance. Busbar is an essential component for designing the integrated architecture for modern electrical systems.
The global shift towards sustainable energy mainly drives the demand for laminated busbars. The high costs involved in laminated busbar systems are a key factor in limiting the growth of this market.
Increasing global shift towards sustainable energy
Due to the growing threat from the harmful effects of man-made climate change, a radical shift in energy consumption is underway globally. Efforts are underway to decarbonize global electricity production and transmission and make it more sustainable. Significant investment is being undertaken to upgrade and improve existing electric infrastructure across the globe.
The upcoming years will see the growing mass adoption of environmentally friendly transportation alternatives such as electric vehicles and hydrogen fuel cell vehicles. Municipal and national governments are also making significant investments in mass public transit projects such as metros, monorails and electric buses. It is expected to create a surge in demand for electricity.
Developing and underdeveloped countries worldwide still lack access to stable electricity supply. Access to electricity is a basic right and not a luxury in the modern age. A reliable electricity supply is essential to spur economic development in these countries. The growing adoption of sustainable energy resources is also likely to give these countries an affordable energy source.
Busbars are metal structures, often made of copper or aluminum and are used to carry and direct large amounts of current in an electrical distribution system. Busbars distribute alternating current (AC) power to circuit breakers. Busbars reduce costs, increase reliability and help maximize system performance. It is an essential component of a modern electricity distribution system. The increasing global shift towards sustainable energy is expected to greatly increase the demand for busbars to ensure reliability and performance. It is a key driver of the growth of the market.
High costs involved in the laminated busbar system
The laminated busbar has several key advantages that make it ideal for industrial and commercial electrical applications. However, there are also quite prominent disadvantages to using the laminated busbar system. The design, construction and installation of laminated busbar systems involve extremely high costs.
Special materials are used for the laminates, which require unique manufacturing and fabrication processes. It increases the manufacturing costs for the component. Since busbars are a critical electrical system component, they are subjected to exhaustive safety tests as mandated by various governmental regulations. Ensuring compliance with various international governmental regulations is another factor in driving up the costs for laminated busbars.
Furthermore, a highly skilled technician must install and commission busbar systems, thereby increasing installation costs. Busbars are commercially unviable if the number of switchgear within the electricity distribution system is low. The abovementioned factors involve high costs for laminated busbars and prevent their wider adoption. It is a key challenge for the growth of the market.
COVID-19 impact analysis
The COVID-19 epidemic had a major impact on the global laminated busbar business. Manufacturing activity was interrupted due to government-imposed lockdowns and other movement restrictions. It has a significant impact on manufacturing laminated busbars and other essential electrical components.
Before the pandemic, governments and other end-users could meet the demand for laminated busbars from accumulated reserve supplies. However, due to a production shortfall, much of the crucial infrastructure development was delayed due to depleted reserves. The fabrication of components for laminated busbars is subcontracted to third-party manufacturers in various countries, resulting in a global supply chain. The pandemic has wreaked havoc on global supply networks, exacerbated by logistical delays. It has wreaked havoc on production, with laminated busbar production not anticipated to resume until 2021.
The COVID-19 epidemic has had a significant short-term impact on the laminated busbar market. Because governments prioritize investment in updating power infrastructure to maintain a steady energy supply, the pandemic will have a small influence on the global laminated busbar market's medium to long-term growth. It will result in a surge in demand for various electrical components. The demand for laminated busbar is still high and it is likely to continue to rise in the coming years.
The global Laminated busbar market is segmented into material, insulation material, end-user and region. The laminated busbar market is segmented into copper and aluminum based on material. Copper is expected to hold the largest market size for laminated busbars during the forecast period in the material segment. Copper is the most widely used material for electrical components. Copper has excellent electrical conductivity along with high surge protection properties. It is the ideal material for manufacturing electrical transmission and distribution equipment.
Asia-Pacific is leading in the global laminated busbar market. The region accounts for the largest market share, primarily due to the presence of China and India. Both the countries have a combined population of nearly 3 billion people, accounting for nearly 36% of the total global population. Both the countries are rapidly industrializing and have made significant investments in electricity generation, transmission and public infrastructure. Apart from India and China, there are a lot of rapidly industrializing countries in the region, such as Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia, Malaysia and Bangladesh.
China has the world's second-largest railway network, extending nearly 150,000 kilometers, nearly 100,000 electrified. China also possesses the world's largest high-speed rail network. India's rail network has 126,366 kilometers, with almost 45,000 kilometers electrified. India is also constructing a high-speed rail system. Both the countries are undertaking major infrastructure programs to upgrade the electricity distribution network.
Rising residential and commercial construction in the region is another main factor in increasing demand for electricity. Many new manufacturing industries are shifting to the Asia-Pacific region to take advantage of cheap labor, low tax regimen and other favorable business policies. It is creating unprecedented demand for stable electricity within the region. The Asia-Pacific region is expected to retain the largest share in the global laminated busbar market.
