May 31, 2023 | Energy & Mining

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Electric Insulator Market Report by Material (Ceramic/Porcelain, Glass, Composites, and Others), Voltage (Low, Medium, High), Category (Bushings, and Other Insulators), Installation (Distribution Networks, Transmission Lines, Substations, Railways, and Others), Product (Pin Insulator, Suspension Insulator, Shackle Insulator, and Others), Rating (<11 kV, 11 kV, 22 kV, 33 kV, 72.5 kV, 145 kV, and, Others), Application (Transformer, Cable, Switchgear, Busbar, Surge Protection Device, and Others), End Use Industry (Utilities, Industries, and Others), and Region 2024-2032," the global electric insulator market size reached US$ 13.1 Billion in 2023. An electric insulator is a material that possesses high resistivity and restricts the free flow of electrons from one particle to another. It comprises plastic, Styrofoam, wax, rubber, glass, ceramics, and composite polymer materials. It has dielectric strength to withstand electric stresses without breaking down. It is commercially available as a pin, suspension, strain, and shackle insulator, which is employed in overhead power lines. It forms a barrier between energized parts of an electric circuit and confines the flow of current to wires or other conducting paths. It is used to hold conductors in position, separating them from one another and from surrounding structures.

Global Electric Insulator Market Trends:

At present, the increasing demand for electric insulators to ensure the safe and stable operations of electric circuits represents one of the primary factors propelling the growth of the market. Besides this, the rising utilization of electric insulators in power transmission for providing mechanical support is contributing to the growth of the market. In addition, the wide availability of electricity in various remote areas around the world is offering a favorable market outlook. Apart from this, the increasing demand for electricity in numerous industrial set-ups to operate heavy machinery is supporting the growth of the market. Additionally, the rising installation of electric vehicle (EV) charging stations in numerous public places is bolstering the growth of the market. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 20.1 Billion by 2032, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.7% during 2024-2032.
