Electric Power Transmission & Distribution Equipment

Electric Power Transmission & Distribution Equipment

Increases in the US electric power transmission and distribution (T&D) equipment market will average 5.5 percent annually through 2019 to $3.4 billion. Advances will be fueled by rising electricity generation, particularly from independent power producers and nonutility generators. Additionally, rising electric output of renewable resources will also boost T&D equipment sales.

This report segments the electric power T&D market by product and market. Data is provided in million US dollars.

Electric power T&D products include:
Switchgear & Switchboard Apparatus
Transformers
Electric Meters
Pole & Transmission Line Hardware

Switchgear products will remain the largest of these through 2019, accounting for 55 percent of the market total. Switchgear products and pole and transmission line hardware will register the fastest sales growth through 2019. Demand for these products will be fueled by the strong increases in electricity generation from renewable resources.

Major electric T&D markets include:
Electric Utilities
Industrial & Nonutility Generators
Commercial Sector
Residential Sector
Government & Institutions

Electric utilities were the leading market in 2014, comprising 53 percent of demand total. The fastest growth through 2019 is projected for the residential market, driven by continued recovery in housing completions. Additionally, the rising use of consumer electronics will support advances in the residential market, as the need for electricity will increase.

The US electric power T&D market is concentrated, with a relatively small number of firms accounting for a large portion of sales. Leading suppliers of electric power T&D equipment include ABB, Eaton, General Electric, Howard Industries, Hubbell, Itron, Mitsubishi Electric, Powell Industries, S&C Electric, Schneider Electric, Siemens, and TE Connectivity.
