Gas Insulated Transmission Lines Market Size, COVID-19 Impact Analysis, Regional Outlook, Growth Potential, Competitive Market Share & Forecast, 2023 – 2032

  • Report ID: GMI3619

Gas Insulated Transmission Lines Market size is slated to observe substantial CAGR from 2023 to 2032 driven by the increasing usage of these lines in various infrastructure projects, such as coal power plants, hydropower dams, nuclear power plants, oil, or gas power plants, and so on. In addition, rapid industrialization and ongoing renewable energy applications worldwide are foreseen to be lucrative for the gas-insulated transmission lines market landscape through the coming years.

Gas-insulated transmission lines (GIL) offer technical, operational, and environmental features, which make them an ideal alternative in conditions where extra high currents and voltages are needed within the restricted space.

GILs come with various positive attributes like low capacitive load, low transmission losses, high reliability, increased level of personnel safety, no electric aging, and others. These factors are expected to stimulate gas insulated transmission lines market demand across various ongoing projects around the world.

Restraints encountered by GIL manufacturers and suppliers include the use of Sulphur hexafluoride gas (SF6) as an insulation medium owing to its stable structure and exceptional properties. However, the introduction of a certified second-generation GIL has significantly lowered the use of SF6 gas. Reportedly, the 2nd generation of GIL is known to have a high global warming potential, which is expected to pose a threat to the environment, thus impeding its use globally.

Additionally, the Russia-Ukraine war and surging inflation in the post-pandemic scenario are both expected to have a major influence on the global gas insulated transmission lines market. Energy demand is likely to remain high, but regional instability may influence the supply chain and distribution routes.

Future applications of gas-insulated transmission lines in railway and traffic tunnels are expected to supplement market progression in various urbanizing regions wherein the space constraints are relatively high.

Based on installation method, the aboveground gas insulated transmission lines market is set to record exponential growth during 2023 to 2032 as it offers a trouble-free option and is suitable even for adverse environmental conditions. These lines also offer resistance against intensive solar radiation or severe atmospheric pollution owing to which they can be placed above the ground. Besides, for safety and security reasons, aboveground installation is only used in secure regions like industrial plants and power substations or stations. The outer surface of these lines is generally grounded, which makes it safe to contact and streamlines mounting.

DC gas-insulated transmission lines offer a robust solution for underground installations. The reliability of AC gas-insulated technology has indeed initiated changes in the development of DC gas-insulated lines. Furthermore, DC installation is a cost-efficient solution for use at power plants and substations.

Asia Pacific gas insulated transmission lines market is anticipated to register lucrative gains through 2032 attributed to rapid urbanization and industrialization, which is resulting in the rising consumption of high-voltage electricity. Additionally, China leads the hydropower sector in demanding the deployment of gas-insulated transmission lines. The soaring demand from the power transmission and generation sector is further likely to promote the GIL market growth across major countries, including China, Japan, and India, thereby impelling the overall market growth between 2023 and 2032.

Key players active in the global gas-insulated transmission lines business scenario include AZZ Inc., TBEA Energy, Beta Engineering, Grupo COBRA (ACS Group), Siemens AG, L&T Construction, Jiangnan Group Limited, General Electric, and others. They are relentlessly striving to cut through the fierce competition through different strategic measures, including mergers, collaborations, product launches, and so forth.

In March 2022, Sterlite Power, a power transmission developer & solutions supplier in India and Brazil, was awarded a major transmission project in Jammu and Kashmir through tariff-based competitive bidding. The project includes a 400/132 kV gas-insulated substation in Kishtwar and a 400 kV line-in-line-out transmission line from Kishenpur to Dulhasti.
