According to 6Wresearch, Latin America Load Break Switch and Recloser Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 8.6% and 5.9%, respectively during 2018-24. Brazil and Mexico captured the highest market revenue shares and are projected to generate substantial demand for load break switches and reclosers over the coming years on account of growing investment in power sector. Additionally, Latin American countries such as Mexico utilizes only 1.7% of its overall wind energy potential (71,000 MW). Mexico would expand its wind power generation capacity, which would spur overall power infrastructure in the country during the forecast period.
According to Ravi Bhandari, Assistant Manager, 6Wresearch, "Reclosers held majority of the revenue share in the overall market in 2017. Recloser market in Latin America was dominated by vacuum-insulated type due to better performance records and reliability of the equipment over other insulation type of load break switches. Further, the demand for reclosers is likely to remain high during the forecast period on account of power projects such as Tapajos Hydropower Complex and Belo Monte Hydroelectric power plant in Brazil."
"The demand for reclosers and load break switches would remain high in Argentina and Brazil on account of improving power related infrastructure in these countries", Ravi further added.
According to Vikrant Tomar, Research Associate, Research and Consulting, 6Wresearch, "Power distribution utilities application captured majority of the revenue share in Latin America's load break switch and recloser market. Surging foreign direct investment in the infrastructure development sector coupled with expansion of manufacturing sector is likely to boost the sales for reclosers in the region."
