The Middle East feeder and distribution pillar market size was USD over 130 million in 2014 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 6% over the forecast period. Rising demand for commercial, residential, and light industrial applications, smart grid compatible products, and increasing need for reliable power delivery are anticipated to drive industry demand.
Industry participants use superior quality of raw material to ensure high availability with low ownership costs, low maintenance with long life, and reduced cabling and indoor floor space, and easy and safe usability.
Growing need to protect both transformers and cables from the fault is expected to fuel product demand over the forecast period. The industry is poised for growth owing to several benefits such as the capability for indoor and outdoor installation saving valuable indoor space such as in retail outlets and hospitals.
The industry is also expected to witness the integration of smart grid technologies for developing compatible products in order to ensure better energy efficiency, improved grid performance, demand response, and dynamic rates. Increasing urbanization coupled with growing electricity demand is anticipated to hoist revenue growth. To mitigate the after-effects of fault currents and rising need for minimizing the electric failures are also expected to elevate product demand.
Wide use across defense estates MoD, airports, hospitals, retail parks, education establishments, and sports facilities may also catapult industry growth. Applications include commercial premises and light industrial. Outdoor and indoor power delivery including retail outlets and hospitals, MCB, moulded case circuit breakers (MCCB) are also among key end-use sectors. A feeder pillar is utilized to offer short circuit resistance and isolation from high currents and to provide electrical services specifically for low voltage electrical applications.
The industry can be categorised by technology into single-phase and three-phase products. Single-phase is a fully treated plywood backboard with a DNO incoming supply cable and an SP&N distribution panel. Three-phase is designed with distribution network operator (DNO) supply cut, an isolator, and a supply meter. They are placed within the maximum distance from the electrical equipment and are robust providing electrical services, ability to withstand high heat, and a high level of corrosion resistance to ensure a long maintenance life and durability.
Technological advancements encouraging new features such as included air circuit breakers and moulded case along with benefits offered, which include cost savings, flexibility, and safety are expected to favour industry demand.
The low-voltage products are a fundamental part of most public and private distribution networks. They are equipped with technically advanced molded case and air circuit breakers up to 3,200 A. Three-phase product segment is expected to grow at a CAGR of over 6% followed by single-phase feeder and is primarily used by large industries or residential townships for bulk power delivery.
The Middle East feeder and distribution pillar market is anticipated to grow at a considerable rate over the forecast period, owing to the technological developments and expansion of power network in the region.
Saudi Arabia is expected to drive the regional demand with a revenue share of over 40% owing to increasing investments in the power projects, whereas the UAE is anticipated to witness substantial growth over the forecast period.
Companies dominating the feeder and distribution pillar market include Schneider Electric, Hager Group, Lucy Electric, KEMCO Group, Qatar International Electrical, and Federal Switchgear Limited.
Industry participants manufacture their products with high endurance and low maintenance costs. Several other leading players include TOFCO CPP Limited, Voltamp energy Company, Verger Delporte UAE Limited, Emirates Transformers, Switchgears Limited, and Techno Group.

The exponential spread of COVID-19 worldwide has had an adverse impact on the semiconductor industry with manufacturing facilities temporarily shut, leading to a significant slowdown in the production. The outbreak could result in disruption across the ecosystem with several supply chain participants shifting their production facilities outside China, thereby reducing their over-reliance on China. Lockdowns imposed by the governments in the wake of the Covid-19 outbreak has not only affected manufacturing but also hauled consumer demand for semiconductor devices. Our analysts predict a decline in semiconductor revenue by over 1% in 2020 as compared to that in 2019. The report will account for Covid19 as a key market contributor.
