Industrial Plugs and Sockets Market Segmented By Industrial Plugs, Surface Mounted Industrial Sockets, Panel Mounted Industrial Sockets, Industrial and multiphase power plugs and sockets, Electric Plugs and Sockets
The concept of modernizing electricity and power grids by establishing a network of safe, secure, efficient, sustainable, and economic power supply has been gaining steam lately. The current grid network has become unreliable and inefficient, and is also one of the main causes of greenhouse gas emissions globally.
With growing inclination towards green energy, replacement of the grid network with smart grid has been gaining popularity over the past decade, and is anticipated to elevate the demand for industrial plugs and sockets. Smart grid network can help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 211 million metric tons, and is estimated to pull-in investments worth US$ 400 Bn by 2020.
The need for energy savings, and the development of automated and trans-active power distribution networks is prominent among countries like the U.S., India, China, Indonesia, and Canada, where the demand for industrial plugs and sockets is prominent.
This, coupled with the need to curb energy losses and develop a sustainable energy eco-system, is anticipated to create elevated demand for industrial plugs and sockets over the forecast period.
Industrial plugs and sockets are widely used in harsh environments owing to their ability to provide better durability as well as resistance against water, chemicals, dirt, temperature and pressure.
