Qatar Busbar Market By Type (Low (up to 125 A), Medium (126 A to 800 A) & High (above 801 A)), By End User (Utilities, Industrial, Residential & Other), Competition Forecast & Opportunities, 2011 – 2021
A busbar is a bar or metallic strip of copper, aluminum, cast iron or brass that conducts electricity within switchgear, substation and distribution board. In Qatar, the per capita electricity consumption stands at around 15,471 kWh, which is about 3 times more than the global average, and thus indicating extensive consumption of electricity in the country. Major factors behind high per capita consumption of electricity include growing demand for electric appliances, especially air conditioners, due to hot climatic conditions; and increasing water desalination projects owing to lack of potable water in Qatar. Backed by high and continuously growing per capita electricity consumption, demand for busbars is anticipated to grow at a robust pace over the next five years. Moreover, Qatar is developing its refinery and petrochemical processing infrastructure in order to promulgate industrial diversification, which calls for the development of electrical infrastructure, including building new power plants and transmission and distribution network, consequently boosting demand for busbars in the country.
