Global Low and Medium Voltage Switchgear Market 2017-2021

About Low and Medium Voltage Switchgear

Switchgear form an important T&D equipment. They are used to control safety and reliability of networks for ensuring smooth flow of electric power. Switchgears are segmented as per the arc-quenching medium that is used such as air, SF6 gas, and oil. With the advent of hybrid switchgear technology in the late 1990s, the equipment combined two different technologies in its operation: Gas-insulation technology for arc-quenching purpose, and Air-insulation technology for bus bars to be connected to other equipment present in a substation.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global low and medium voltage switchgear market to grow at a CAGR of 6.46% during the period 2017-2021.
