Up to 750 V: The largest segment of the DC switchgear market, by voltage.
The D C switchgear market, by voltage, is segmented into up to 750 V, 750 V to 1,800 V, 1,800 V to 3,000 V, 3,000 V to 10 kV and above 10 kV. The up to 750 V segment is expected to be the largest segment in the DC switchgear market, by voltage, during the forecast period. The high-cost efficiency associated with 750 V DC power supply systems is expected to fuel the growth of the up to 750 V segment of the DC switchgear market.
The railways segment is expected to be the most significant DC switchgear market, by application.
The DC switchgear market, by application, is segmented into railways, solar farms, battery storage, EV charging infrastructure, marine, power generation and others. The railways segment is expected to hold the largest size of the market for DC switchgears. The developments in the suburban railway network, expansion and modernization of heavy rail network, and upgrade of existing metro lines across the world are expected to fuel the growth of the railways segment in the DC switchgear market.
Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the global D C switchgear market.
The Asia Pacific region is estimated to be the largest market for the D C switchgear, followed by North America. The Asia Pacific region is also projected to be the fastest growing market during the forecast period. Asia Pacific is expected to dominate the market due to the growing investments in the railways sector and integration of renewable energy sources, especially in countries such as China, India, Japan, and Australia.
