The hurdles faced by service providers in power transmission over long distances is yet another factor propelling the adoption of these components in the recent past. Thus, in an effort to cut down the energy losses through effective transmission of energy and reducing the carbon footprint is anticipated to increase the deployment of sophisticated transmission components in the coming years. With these unwavering market drivers, the global power transmission components market is expected to be worth US$102,574.8 mn by 2023 as compared to US$64,155.6 mn in 2015, expanding at CAGR of 6.0% between 2014 and 2023.

It is a well-known fact that modern power transmission components are designed to render long-term savings by providing uninterrupted power supply. With this backing, governments across the globe are incentivizing installations of new-age power transmission components to achieve significant energy savings. This move comes as world leaders are devising ways to achieve economic growth through sustainable means. Furthermore, the need to upgrade the old power plant infrastructure also has a positive impact on the market. However, the high cost of initial investment is discouraging power plants from investing in these components.

Government Initiatives to Reduce Carbon Footprint in North America Prove Favorable for Demand

Geographically, the power transmission components market has a presence across regions of Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, the Middle East and Africa, and South and Central America. As of 2014, North America held a leading share of 26.50% and is expected to equate to 25.57% by 2023. Despite the minor drop in percentage, this regional market will excel due to increasing investments in upgrading existing power transmission components. The initiatives by governments to curb the carbon emission and negate the carbon footprint is also expected to boost the power transmission components market in North America. Efforts in regions such as Asia Pacific to upgrade their facilities to smart grid infrastructure will also propel the adoption of new transmission components in the region.

Switchgears and Circuit Breakers Segment Expected to Exhibit Strong Growth
