The market is segmented by type into ceramic, glass, and composite, out of which, the composite segment is anticipated to observe a notable growth in the global electric insulator market. Properties of the material such as high shock resistance, excellent transmission line aesthetics and ease of installation are predicted to boost the growth of this market segment in the coming years. Apart from this, the ceramic segment is predicted to acquire the largest share over the forecast period owing to the rising expansion of transmission and distribution network that uses ceramic electric insulators. Additionally, on the basis of application, the transformer segment is assessed to witness robust growth in the future, which can be credited to the growing installation of transformers to meet the surging electricity requirements across the globe. 

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Electricity Consumption

In 2018, the world’s total energy supply was 14282 Mtoe, wherein the highest share in terms of source was captured by oil, accounting for 31.6%, followed by coal (26.9%), natural gas (22.8%), biofuels and waste (9.3%), nuclear (4.9%), hydro (2.5%), and other (2.0%). Where there was an increase in energy demand in 2018, the year 2019 witnessed slow growth as the energy efficiency improved owing to decline in the demand for cooling and heating. However, in 2020, the electricity demand decreased by 2.5% in the first quarter of 2020 due to the outbreak of Coronavirus resulting in government imposed shutdowns in order to limit the spread of the virus, which was further followed by shutdown of numerous business operations impacting their growth. This also resulted in decline of 5.8% in the worldwide CO2 emissions which was recorded to be five times larger than the one recorded during the global financial crisis in 2009. However, in 2021, the demand for oil, gas and coal is estimated to witness growth, which is further projected to create opportunities for market growth. Moreover, rising environment degradation and awareness related to climate change is motivating many key players to employ sustainable energy strategies and invest significantly in environment-friendly power generation technologies with an aim to promote sustainable development among various nations around the world. Such factors are anticipated to promote the growth of the market in upcoming years.
