CIRCUIT BREAKER TECHNOLOGY TRENDS
- Circuit breakers have experienced three fundamental changes in technology, in the 1930s and from 1950-70. In each case a new technology established
dominance in the HV or MV market over several decades. Long established markets have legacy populations of breakers with earlier technologies, while newly electrified countries leapfrog straight to new technology. The emergence of each technology is plotted over time, to establish the dominance of each technology.
ENVIRONMENTAL HAZARD OF SF6
- SF6 has a GWP (global warming potential) 22,000 times more than CO2. Alternatives to SH6 technology for HV use are being explored and vacuum technology, so far restricted to the MV segment, except in Japan, is the front-runner.
- Rapid recent electrification has contributed to the very high growth rate in the fastest growing market the Middle East.
PRODUCTION CAPACITY AND MANUFACTURERS
- Production capacity is discussed to identify the threat of overproduction.
- Manufacturers are listed with global market shares.
PPI (PRODUCER PRICE INDEX) TREND, ANALYSIS OF FACTORS IMPACTING PRICE
- PPI trends are shown and the following factors analysed.
- Demand for switchgear, market and industry trends
- Production capacity—surplus/shortage
- Input prices of:
- The economic and financial climate
LONG TERM DEMAND CYCLE 1900-2050
- The long term demand cycle depends on new build and replacement. It is plotted over time to determine the demand cycle over 150 years.
