Indoor V/S Outdoor Switchgear: Which is Better?

The global medium-voltage switchgear market is projected to reach the valuation of US$ 44 Bn by the end of 2031. Indoor switchgear are considered reliable and safe as compared to outdoor switchgear. However, the high installation cost of indoor switchgear tends to balance out the choice between the two.

Outdoor switchgear require less capacity of infrastructure for installation. However, the cost of maintenance is high of outdoor switchgear as compared to indoor switchgear. Indoor switchgear tends to take lesser space as opposed to outdoor switchgear. On the other hand, the major erection work for outdoor switchgear is much less than indoor switchgear. In addition, metal-clad switchgear is more advantageous than metal-enclosed switchgear, since the former is highly customizable.
