GCC Protective Relay Market To Reach $592.3 Million By 2030

November 2023 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

GCC Protective Relay Market Growth & Trends

The GCC protective relay market size is expected to reach USD 592.3 million by 2030, registering at a CAGR of 5.0% from 2023 to 2030, according to a new study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc. Escalating investments in the transmission & distribution infrastructure to substitute the aging equipment is a key factor instigating the protective relay demand in the power systems. The increasing complexity of electrical circuits has made it unavoidable to use protective devices for the safe & secure operation. The increasing electricity generation capacity to fulfill the growing population’s electricity needs is anticipated to remain as a chief factor driving the market growth. However, the cost associated with the installation & maintenance of protective relays is projected to challenge the market over the forecast period.

The GCC protective relay market is expected to gain prominence over the forecast period owing to the population growth coupled with the increasing domestic power consumption in Saudi Arabia. Furthermore, upcoming events, such as 2022 FIFA World Cup, would further lead to increased investments in the infrastructure development, thereby spurring the electricity demand in GCC. This would subsequently elevate the need for protective relays to safeguard the power systems in this region.
