Global Gas-Insulated Substation (GIS) Market Highlights over 2022 – 2031

The global gas-insulated substation (GIS) market is estimated to grow at a CAGR of ~10% over the forecast period, i.e., 2022 – 2031. Gas insulated substation contains a sealed chamber of sulfur hexafluoride gas as the insulating medium for high voltage substation. It is safer and more convenient than air insulated substation in a metal-clad system, as sulfur hexafluoride is five times heavier than air. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing demand for energy across various industries, along with rising investments in the transmission & distribution infrastructure. According to the data by the International Energy Agency (IEA), USD 18 billion were invested in the smart grid infrastructure, while USD 21 billion was spent for installation of smart meters, in 2019. Moreover, the growing demand for electricity across the globe, and rise in adoption of renewable forms of energy, are further estimated to boost the market growth. As per the IEA report, in 2019, total global electricity final consumption reached 22,848 TWh. In addition to this, various advantageous factors of GIS, such as, high voltage potential, and optimum extinguishing ability of the gas, are foreseen to propel the market growth.

The market is segmented by voltage type into medium, high, and extra high, out of which, the high segment is anticipated to hold a substantial share in the global gas-insulated substation (GIS) market over the forecast period. This can be accounted to the growing application of high voltage GIS in large power generation plants, in order to meet the surging electricity consumption globally.

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Electricity Consumption Sector Graph

In 2019, the world’s total energy supply was 606EJ, wherein the highest share in terms of source was captured by oil, accounting for 30.9%, followed by coal (26.8%), natural gas (23.2%), biofuels and waste (9.4%), nuclear (5.0%), hydro (2.5%), and other (2.2%). 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 1% 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.
