The control equipment segment is expected to exhibit the highest growth rate during the forecast period
The control equipment segment generated revenue of US$ 6,795.0Mn in 2017. By 2027, the segment is projected to reach US$ 15,526.5Mn with a CAGR of 8.9% over the forecast period.
In terms of volume, the control equipment segment was pegged at 9,411.8 thousand units in 2017. By 2027, the segment is projected to reach 16,511.2 thousand units with a CAGR of 6.4% over the forecast period. An electronic device designed to maintain voltage level of a power source is known as a control equipment. The device plays a significant role in energy conservation. The factors that propel growth of this segment include, increasing demand for high voltage equipment due to rapid urbanization & industrialization, and technological advancements. The features of control equipment such as ease of use, compact size, low cost, and lesser noise drive their demand. Moreover, with the advancements in technology, the application of control equipment is increasing in communication technology, consumer electronics, and automobile industries, subsequently increasing demand for control equipment in these industries.
Major chip producing companies are focused on developing a generation of smaller control equipment to ensure optimum power supply while reducing the size of the chip for computers and other consumer electronic devices. Furthermore, such compact size control equipment can be used in devices such as battery-operated automotive electronics, portable electronics, solar and wind-power systems, and wireless communications to ensure optimal functionality.
Moreover, export of electricity to Europe, as proposed by the DESERTEC consortium, is expected to increase development of renewable electricity in North Africa. Such initiatives have resulted in usage of 100GW (gigawatt) of renewable capacity that produce 400TWh (terawatt hour) of electricity for export to Europe, which in turn is fueling demand for high voltage equipment in North Africa.
Economic growth in Saudi Arabia across various sectors such as power, infrastructure, and petrochemicals is increasing demand for high voltage equipment. Rapid infrastructure development requires high power in terms of T&D (Transmission and Distribution), which subsequently fuels the high voltage equipment market growth. Middle East accounted for the highest share i.e. XX% in rest of the world high voltage equipment market.
