Industrial insulator market is anticipated to witness significant growth over the forecast period owing to rapid expansion of transmission and distribution (T&D) networks. Industrial insulators are primarily made of three types of materials namely ceramic, composite and glass insulators. Insulators are of numerous types including pin type, suspension, strain, shackle, bushing, station post and cut-out insulators. Increasing energy demand is expected to increase the T&D line length which is expected to stimulate the demand for industrial insulators over the next seven years. Rising demand for composite insulators owing to their lightweight and good electrical and mechanical properties is expected to boost the demand in transmission lines. Moreover, insulators are used to control the energy efficiency and it reduces the carbon footprint which is expected to fuel the market growth. However, increasing use of efficient blowing agents is causing depletion of the ozone layer and environmental safety issues which are expected to restrain market growth over the forecast period. In addition, stringent government regulations and policies are also expected to restrict the demand over the next seven years.
Industrial insulators find wide applications in transformers, cables & transmission lines, switchgears, surge protection devices, bus bar, tanks & vessels, chimneys & exhausts, fire protection, pipelines, boilers, process equipments, railways, automotive industries, solar collectors, petrochemical, pulp & paper, chemical, refining, gas processing, heavy manufacturing, heating, ventilating, & air conditioning (HVAC) and offshore sector. Growing demand for power is expected to increase the use of switchgears and cables & transmission lines which in turn is anticipated to surge the demand for industrial insulators over the forecast period. Moreover, rapid industrialization and urbanization is expected to surge the market growth owing to the use of insulators to supply electricity to various industries and households. Furthermore, advancement in technologies in various sectors including oil and gas which has ventured into deep and ultra-deep drilling at offshore locations is expected to accelerate demand over the next seven years. In addition, improvements in infrastructure and railway industries is expected to propel the market growth owing to the need for higher safety standards, improved efficiency and fire protection. Rising demand for automobiles in China, India, U.S. and Mexico is driving manufacturers to invest more in industrial insulators which help in noise reduction, fire protection and reduction in heat loss leading to improved efficiency and safety standards. Fluctuating fuel prices is expected to propel industrial consumers to improve their efficiency in operations which is predicted to impact the market growth significantly over the upcoming period.
North America is anticipated to grow significantly over the forecast period owing to rapid growth in the infrastructure, oil and gas and automobile industries particularly in the U.S. and Canada. The retrofit market is expected to contribute towards market growth mainly in the U.S. on account of induction of new technology and safety practices in old infrastructure. Europe is expected to augment the demand for industrial insulators mainly in Italy, UK, France, Spain and Germany on account of growing automobile, industrial, and power sector. Moreover, rising employment of the smart grid concept predominantly in Europe coupled with the growing use of renewable energy for electricity generation has increased the expansion of T&D network. Asia Pacific has huge potential for market growth pertaining to industrialization and real estate boom particularly in China, India, Malaysia and Japan. Moreover, high demand for energy owing to rising population, increasing standards of living and developing economies is anticipated to have a positive impact on market growth. Furthermore, growing need to conserve energy in this region coupled with increasing environmental safety requirements is expected to augment the demand over the next seven years. Global warming and changing climatic conditions all over the globe is expected to boost the industrial insulator market owing to their use to reduce energy losses.
