Global Electric Insulator Market to Grow at 5.5% During 2022-2027, Stimulated by Refurbishment of Aging Grid Technology

November 21, 2019

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Electric Insulator Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2022-2027”, the global electric insulator market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during 2022-2027. Electric insulators are materials that demonstrate poor electrical conductivity owing to the lack of free-flowing electric charge. They exhibit high resistivity and assist in concentrating the flow of electric current as well as preventing it from flowing where it is not required. Some of the popularly known electric insulators include air, glass, ceramic, composite materials, rubber, plastic, wood, silk and paper. For instance, copper conductors, which are employed in the electrical wiring of homes and industrial plants, are generally insulated from each other using rubber or plastics. Similarly, overhead power lines are insulated by utilizing porcelain insulators.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

Global Electric Insulator Market Trends:

As electric insulators protect against the hazardous impact of electricity, they are extensively used in electricity transmission and distribution (T&D) networks as a safety device. This can also be attributed to the advantages offered by electric insulators, which include low thermal expansion and high dielectric strength. Apart from this, numerous developed countries are currently investing in the refurbishment of aging grid technology and establishing sustainable electrical networks for distributing electricity that is generated through renewable sources. On the other hand, governments in several developing economies are introducing smart grid vision and green energy corridors to construct a reliable and efficient grid infrastructure and ensure that electricity reaches in every state.
