Increasing infrastructure development activities, rising commercial sector, and large scale investments in the power transmission & distribution network are the major factors that would drive the market of medium voltage switchgear market in the GCC region.
According to 6Wresearch, GCC Medium Voltage Switchgear Market is projected to reach $1.4 Billion by 2023. The medium voltage switchgear market in GCC has witnessed robust growth over the past five years due to growing electricity consumption and increasing public and transportation infrastructures in the region. During the forecast period, the market of medium voltage switchgear is expected to rise on the back of the expansion of power transmission and distribution network and grid connection across the region.
According to Ravi Bhandari, Assistant Manager, 6Wresearch, in the GCC region, the power utilities sector has captured major revenue share in the overall market and is expected to dominate in the forecast period as well. Demand for medium voltage switchgear in power utilities is anticipated to escalate with the setup of new power plants and expanding grid network across the region.
"With upcoming global events like World Expo 2020 in the UAE and FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar, respective countries are investing heavily in the development of public infrastructure and power sector. Focus on diversification of the economy, with heavy investments in the non-oil sector to reduce their dependence on the oil & gas sector is further expected to drive the medium voltage switchgear market in the GCC," Ravi further added.
According to Anuj Sharma, Research Associate, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch, "although, medium voltage switchgear with voltage rating 11KV and 33 KV are the main drivers of the market in GCC, the segment with a voltage rating of 22KV is registering demand in countries such as UAE and Qatar. The vision of each GCC member aiming to increase the renewable energy share would also increase the market for medium voltage switchgear in the GCC region," Anuj concluded.
Some of the major companies in the GCC Medium Voltage Switchgear market Include ABB, Schneider Electric, Siemens, Al Ahliea Switchgears, Al Hasan, Hyosung Corporation, Eaton Corporation, etc.
