Global Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) Market 2015-2019

Global Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) Market 2015-2019

About GIS

Switchgear is a protection device and is a combination of different types of components such as circuit breakers, current transformers, potential transformers, lightning arrestors, protection relays, and disconnectors arranged in a logical manner. They are used in transmission and distribution of electric power and effectively protect equipment and circuits from unregulated power spikes. On the basis of material used for arc quenching, switchgears can be classified as gas-insulated switchgears, air-insulated switchgears, oil-insulated switchgears, and vacuum-insulated switchgears.

Technavio's analysts forecast the global GIS market to grow at a CAGR of 10.06% over the period 2015-2019.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Gas Insulated Switchgear (GIS) Market 2015-2019

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global gas insulated switchgear market: ABB, Alstom, Hitachi, Schneider Electric and Siemens

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Beikai Electric, Hitachi, Mitsubishi Electric and Toshiba

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “SF6 is a gas used in GIS as insulation. The gas can escalate global warming and this has increased the need to replace the gas with an alternative medium. The n2/SF6 mixture acts as a good insulation medium even at low SF6 content. The dielectric strength of N2/SF6 is equivalent to pure SF6 at a moderate pressure increase. However, the arc quenching ability of N2/SF6 at current zero and current interruption performance is poor in this mixture. This mixture can be only used in high voltage equipment without switching to devices such as a gas-insulated line.”

According to the report, in recent years, air-insulated switchgear (AIS) has many limitations, which is why end-users are switching to gas-insulated switchgear (GIS). Most of the end-user companies operating in developing countries are shifting from AIS to GIS, which will drive the market during the forecast period.

Further, the report states that harmful effects of SF6 is affecting the growth of the market.
