Global SF6 Gas Circuit Breaker Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A SF6 gas circuit breaker uses sulfur hexafluoride as the dielectric medium.SF6 gas has a much higher dielectric strength than air, so it can be used to interrupt high-voltage currents.

Below 40.5 KV:

Below 40.5 KV is the voltage range which is generally used in SF6 gas circuit breakers. The usage of these products has increased owing to the rise in electric power consumption across the globe, and also due to its ability to handle high amperage current as compared to traditional devices.

The SF6 gas circuit breakers are widely used for electricity transmission.

40.5 KV-252 KV:

40.5 KV-252 KV is a standard circuit breaker used in the SF6 gas circuit breaker market. It is designed to protect devices installed in high voltage (HV) and extra high voltage (EHV) power circuits from damage due to short circuits or overloads.

The main features of 40.5 Kv 252Kv include: it has an ability to withstand heavy load current, it can handle large size wire & cable,.

Application Insights:

Electric power transmission segment is projected to emerge as the fastest-growing application segment over the forecast period. This can be attributed to growing demand for SF6 gas circuit breakers in high-voltage switchgear and protection equipment. The product has emerged as an ideal solution for protecting oil & gas, petrochemical, chemical and other industrial plants from electrical discharge damage.

The electric power distribution application segment held a significant share of more than 20% in 2017 owing to its ability to protect against lightning strikes and associated damages across all voltage levels. It also helps extend equipment life by limiting operating temperatures within the system.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific dominated the global market in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The region has observed a growing demand for electric power generation, which has triggered the installation of new SF6 gas circuit breakers across various power plants and distribution lines. Moreover, increasing investments in key countries such as China, India, Japan are anticipated to fuel industry growth over the next eight years.

The Asia Pacific regional market was followed by North America with a revenue share of approximately 25% in 2017 owing to an increase in electric capacity addition along with rising consumer demand for electricity across several industries including manufacturing, healthcare & life sciences and transportation & logistics sectors. In addition, growing awareness regarding safety standards coupled with stringent regulations set forth by governing bodies such as OSHA is further expected to drive product adoption across end-users within this region from 2018 to 2030  timeframe.

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for electricity due to population growth and industrialization in developing countries
  • Rapid replacement of aging infrastructure in developed countries
  • Development of smart grids and the increasing use of renewable energy sources
  • Proliferation of data centers and the growing demand for reliable, high-capacity power systems
  • Stringent regulations on greenhouse gas emissions
