Glass Insulators Market Research, 2031

The global glass insulators market size was valued at $345.8 million in 2021, and is projected to reach $504.6 million by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2022 to 2031.

A glass insulator is a type of electrical insulation, which is made from toughened or annealed glass. Glass insulators are often used to protect electrical wires and prevent them from interacting with each other. It is usually found in transmission towers, distribution poles, and telephone poles. Glass insulators possess low coefficient of thermal expansion, high cracking resistance, and high electrical resistance. Thus, owing to such functionalities, it is extensively used in electricity distribution.

Glass Insulators Market by Type

By type,  the suspension glass insulator segment dominated the market. The growth in the suspension glass insulator segment is driven by rise in industrialization, urbanization, rise in disposable income, and increase in the electrical, distribution & railway, HVDC, HVAC, and smart grid where suspension glass insulator is used widely as electrical components, for surge protection device, in cables, switchgear, transformer, busbar as an insulation component due to its insulating property and high electrical resistance property.

Glass Insulators Market by Application

By application, the HVAC segment dominated the global glass insulator market in 2021. Modern appliances require AC power. Therefore, setting up converter stations at endpoints to transform DC electricity into AC power is more expensive. As a result, demand for flexible AC transmission equipment is expected to increase. The need for flexible AC transmission equipment from industrial sectors, electric utilities, railroads, renewable energy sources, and the oil & gas industries is expected to rise in the coming years.

Glass Insulators Market by Region

By region, Asia-Pacific dominated the global glass insulator market in 2021, and is projected to remain the fastest-growing segment during the forecast period. Due to increased urbanization, population, and industrial sectors in nations of China and India, the Asia-Pacific region is the largest market for glass insulators. As a result, the use of glass insulators in transformers, switchgear, electric cables, and protective devices is growing along with the industrial sector. The expansion of the insulator industry is further aided by the numerous transmission and distribution line projects.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 ON THE GLOBAL GLASS INSULATOR MARKET

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has turned into a global crisis, creating a stunning economic effect on every industry sector, including automotive and utilities. There has been a significant decrease in the demand for power as a result of the loss in commercial and industrial activity throughout the crisis. Lockdowns on significant power users, such as railroads, have also been seen to cause widespread problems. Unfavorable COVID-19 effects on electric utilities could obstruct the development of grid transmission facilities, which in turn might make it more difficult to install glass insulators. The COVID-19 problem has resulted in a considerable increase in HVAC demand from the residential sector, particularly air conditioners, despite the continuous manufacturing delays and ensuing equipment constraints. This surge for cooling systems from residential applications may aid the gradual rise of the glass insulator industry during the forecasted period, given the key position of the product in HVAC infrastructures.

Analyst Review

The global glass insulator market is expected to exhibit high growth potential. Glass insulator refers to an insulating material for the power transmission line made of toughened or annealed glass. Insulating glass, which has numerous panels separated by spacers composed of either structural foam or metal, including aluminum, is able to significantly reduce heat transfer. Noble gases like krypton and argon can also be used to fill the space between these glasses.

In addition, suspension type insulators offer more adaptability to the power line and reduces mechanical stresses. The advantage of using suspension type insulators in conjunction with steel supporting structure is that it lessens the conductor's susceptibility to cross-arm effects, allowing the tower to serve as a lightning rod. If the load on the transmission line increases quickly, increasing the line voltage rather than adding more conductors can meet the increased demand. Additional line insulation requirements for suspension type insulators can be met by simply attaching one or more discs to the string.

Asia-Pacific is expected to hold the largest market share in glass insulators throughout the forecast years, as a huge number of manufacturers of glass insulators operate business in this region. In Asian nations like China, Japan, South Korea, and India, the need for power has surged due to population growth, urbanization, and the expansion of the industrial sector. The market for glass insulators is expanding as a result of rising investments in power transmission infrastructure and increased government efforts to ensure a clean energy economy.

The CXOs further added that sustained economic growth and the development of the electricity distribution have surged the demand for glass insulators.
