|Government efforts to develop power related infrastructure to ensure 100% electrification rate in rural region of Vietnam under the National Power Development Plan VII (2011-2020) along with the strengthening of urban infrastructure including housing and transportation would increase the demand for the switchgears in the country.
According to 6Wresearch, Vietnam Switchgear market revenues are projected to grow at a CAGR of 7.1% during 2018-24. According to the Department for Economic Zones Management (DEZM), industrial parks and special economic zones in Vietnam attracted more than 850 domestic and foreign investment projects worth $12.4 billion in 2017. Stable economic growth and rising inflow of foreign direct investment in industrial sector would be some of the key factors on account of which the switchgear market of the country would register a healthy growth during 2018-24.
According to Ravi Bhandari, Assistant Manager, 6Wresearch, "The residential sector of Vietnam experienced robust growth in past years due to shift in trend towards luxury and mid ranged housing units. Further, the government of Vietnam is also supporting the development of green buildings in Ho Chi Minh and Hanoi regions. The demand for medium and high voltage switchgears is also expected to increase on account of significant growth in the transmission grid network across the country."
"According to Vietnam Electricity (EVN), the total installed power generation capacity of Vietnam would reach around 64 GW by 2020, thus resulting in construction of several new power plant projects in the next few years which would aid the demand for switchgears in the power sector of the country." Ravi further added.
According to Akash Jain, Research Analyst, 6Wresearch, "demand for low and medium voltage switchgears is expected to remain strong due to growing construction activities in residential and commercial segments. The government is looking to develop social infrastructure across Vietnam to attract investment in retail and commercial sectors of the country, especially outside metropolitan cities such as HCM city and Hanoi.
"The $450 billion Economic Restructuring Plan 2016-2020 would focus on the construction of transportation infrastructure, affordable housing and industrial construction in Vietnam," Akash concluded.
