North America Medium Voltage Switchgear Market size is set to surpass USD 15 billion by 2032, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.
Rising emphasis on the refurbishment of existing grid infrastructure will drive the adoption of medium-voltage switchgear components in the region. For example, in November 2022, the U.S. government announced financing opportunities worth USD 13 billion through the U.S. Department of Energy for electric grid modernization and expansion. Several government agencies have also been collaborating with public and private partners to improve, strengthen, and transform energy infrastructure. With rapid digitalization, energy demand from the commercial and residential sectors will further rise, further amplifying MV switchgear installation.
≥ 21 kV to < 27 kV switchgear to gain traction in residential and commercial applications
The ≥ 21 kV to < 27 kV medium voltage switchgear market in North America is slated to register over 6% growth rate through 2032, given its applicability across residential and commercial sectors. This switchgear can also be equipped with circuit breakers, switch disconnectors, and conventional instrument transformers, enabling efficient protection of electrical circuits. With the rapid suburban migration, the construction of large and multi-story residential apartments and complexes has increased, thereby bolstering MV switchgear acceptance.
Large-scale power network expansion fuels use of oil-insulated medium voltage switchgear
The oil insulation segment is anticipated to hold a considerable share of the North America medium voltage switchgear market by 2032. The advancement in specifications for energy-efficient transmission and distribution systems and the introduction of effective distribution technologies are among the key growth drivers. Large-scale power networks have also been expanding at a rapid pace. Furthermore, the replacement cost of large-scale electrical networks and the escalating adoption of advanced technological systems in the electric power industry will contribute to the installation of oil-insulated MV switchgear across the region.
Robust demand for power & reliable T&D system to boost MV switchgear usage in substations
Based on the application, the transformer substations segment is expected to record significant gains through 2032, due to the strong demand for electricity and reliable transmission and distribution systems. Based on the EIA, power consumption is projected to climb to 4,010 billion kWh in 2022 and 4,019 billion kWh in 2023. This increase in electricity use, along with the surging need for energy efficiency, will strengthen MV switchgear adoption across transformer substations.
