Electric Insulators Market, By Material

Porcelain electric insulators market is anticipated to expand over 4% by 2024. Ability to offer optimum mechanical strength and considerable stress resistance are the key factors supporting the product’s dominance across the industry landscape. However, growing prominence of polymeric counterparts are expected to offer a competitive edge to these insulators.

Composite electric insulators market is set to grow on account of their operational suitability and flexibility across a wider range of transmission and distribution voltages. Light weight, durability, high bending, tensile strength and compactness are some of the other competitive features contributing to the increased product demand growth.

Electric Insulators Market, By Voltage

Medium voltage is set to grow over 5% by 2024. These insulators are primarily deployed across residential and commercial establishments to support medium voltage ranges. Legislative ventures to expand electrical infrastructure across developing nations along with growing commercialization and urbanization will further boost industry growth.

Ongoing expansion of T&D infrastructure to support large-scale renewable power integration across developing regions will drive the adoption of high voltage electric insulators. Favorable government initiatives along with growing investments by privately owned utilities toward reinforcing reliable grid networks will further complement the industry landscape.

Electric Insulators Market, By Application

Transformers, in 2017 held over 15% of the global electric insulators market share. Rising concerns over power thefts and protection along with increasing focus on real time monitoring of power networks will foster the industry growth. For instance, recent introduction of Internet of Thing (IoT) based transformers to effectively control and monitor electrical grids will favour the business scenario.

Cables and transmission lines will witness an appreciable growth on account of growing legislative support for the expansion of international border transmission systems. For instance, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) supports the development of cross-border transmission lines between the U.S. and Mexico.

Electric Insulators Market, By Product

Pin electric insulators market is predicted to expand over 5% by 2024. These insulators find prevalent applications across distribution and sub-transmission lines and may be in form of single-piece or multi-piece, depending on the voltage of application. High anti-fog performance, ease of manufacture, and operational flexibility are some of the underlying parameters supporting the product penetration.

Electric Insulators Market, By End-Use

Utilities electric insulators market is expected to grow over 6% by 2024. Increasing R&D expenditures toward modernizing grid networks in response to increased electricity demand will stimulate the industry growth. Deployment of integrated smart grid technologies supported by several national rollout schemes will further support industry growth.
