About the Report

Switchgear monitoring systems are used to eliminate the chances of breakdown of switchgear assets. Switchgear monitoring enables predictive maintenance or condition-based monitoring of switchgear, provides protection to equipment against short circuits and overload conditions, and also controls over distribution of electrical current. Switchgear is one of the key safety components in industries, railways, solar generation plants, and energy distribution plants. To ensure optimum working of switchgear, a proper monitoring system is required.

In the past few years, switchgear monitoring systems have experienced incremental growth, reason being their necessity in various industries to maintain the security of distribution systems. After the impact of COVID-19, industries are aiming toward regaining their market values, and, in achieving that goal, any breakdown or stoppage will slow down their growth. Switchgear monitoring systems will insure that such kind of conditions do not arise.

In its new study, Persistence Market Research offers insights about key factors driving demand for switchgear monitoring systems. The report tracks global sales of switchgear monitoring systems in 20+ high-growth markets, which reveals that East Asia, North America, and Europe lead the pack. It also analyzes the impact COVID-19 has had on various related industries in general, and the switchgear monitoring system market in particular.

Historical Trends Vs Future Outlook

Switchgear monitoring systems are majorly used in energy distribution plants and industrial applications for the purpose of safety of equipment and components. However, these monitoring systems are also being used in the transportation sector since the past few years.

The market is growing, and after the impact of COVID-19, it is estimated to experience accelerated growth. High pace of urbanization is expanding the energy utilities and industrial sector, which is increasing the installation of switchgear, as such, creating demand for switchgear monitoring systems.

The main challenges in front of end users is to select the right switchgear monitoring system, with their high cost, chances of cyber-attacks in case of wireless switchgear monitoring system, and safety issues. Manufacturers are working on SF6 free switchgear, which will aid market growth over the coming years.   

Energy production capacity has grown tremendously over the years, and is still growing at a rapid pace. This is expected to lead to more sales of switchgear monitoring systems. Increased environmental awareness and improved resource efficiency are essential in today’s world. Offshore wind power is making a major contribution to meeting these challenges. Increasing power demand requires a new generation of wind power plants equipped with innovative technologies.

One core aspect of these is that, due to increased wind turbine power, there is a movement to high voltage within wind turbine networks to decrease current, and as such, cable losses occur. This is where compact, environmentally-friendly, high-voltage switchgear can make an optimal contribution, thereby creating significant growth opportunities for the switchgear monitoring system market.

The global economy displayed slower than anticipated growth in 2019. According to the International Monetary Fund (IMF), global growth in 2019 was 2.9%, a slight decrease than 3.6% recorded in 2018. All prominent economies recorded below-average growth, despite monetary policies worldwide, uncommon increase in investment volumes, and low commodity prices, which simply had a huge impact over all industries as well as the market of switchgear monitoring systems.

Persistence Market Research expects the global switchgear monitoring system market to expand at a CAGR of over 4% through 2031.

Category-wise Insights

Why Monitoring System Has a High Market Share?

Partial discharge monitoring systems have the highest percentage of market share at nearly one-third, as they provide real-time operating condition data to users, and are also best suited for wireless monitoring systems. Another big benefit is that the dielectric condition of high voltage equipment can be evaluated, and electrical treeing in the insulation can be detected and located. Partial discharge measurement can localize the damaged part of an insulated system.

Which Type of Switchgear Monitoring System is Most Widely Used by Voltage Level?

High level switchgear monitoring systems are most widely used across regions. The main reason behind this is that most industries and power plants have high electric potential equipment, and for that, they need high voltage level switchgear, and eventually high voltage level switchgear monitoring systems. This segment holds more than 40% of the market share, and will continue to do so through 2031.

Which End-use Industry Demands the Highest Requirement for Switchgear Monitoring Systems?

The energy and utility sector demands the highest requirement of switchgear monitoring systems, holding nearly two-third market share. With continuous growth of the energy generation and distribution industry, the need for switchgear and monitoring systems is will remain high from this sector.

Why Do Software Switchgear Monitoring Systems Hold Less Market Share?

Software monitoring systems for switchgear is the latest and most efficient technology, but high cost of these systems makes them lesser favorable. Cyber-attack is also a threat with software-based monitoring. Many small industries, instead of purchasing switchgear monitoring systems, use service-based system for their needs. 

Why is Gas Insulated Switchgear Preferred Over the Air Insulated Type?

Gas insulated switchgear sees higher demand over air insulated switchgear, because of its compact size and low maintenance cost, which makes it more favorable. However, overall cost of gas insulated switchgear is more than air insulated switchgear, but it requires less manpower, occupies less space, and entails lesser installation cost. Gas insulated switches are properly sealed due to the involvement of SF6 gas, and hence maintenance is required only once in two or three years.
