- The electronic recloser segment is expected to hold the largest share of the recloser market during the forecast period.
- There is an increasing preference for recloser and sectionalizer of capacity up to 15 kV.
- Asia Pacific is expected to be the leading market for reclosers during the forecast period.
The global recloser market (including the sectionalizer market) is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.88%, from 2017 to 2022, to reach a market size of $2.71 billion by 2022. The increasing demand for electric power worldwide, subsequent investments in installing renewable generation, rapid industrialization, and increased investment in automated power equipment are likely to drive the recloser and sectionalizer market during the forecast period.
The recloser market is dominated by a few major players that are established brand names with a wide regional presence. The leading players in the recloser and sectionalizer industry include Eaton (Ireland), Schneider (France), Tavrida (Switzerland), ABB (Switzerland), and NOJA Power (Australia).
The programmable resettable sectionalizer is estimated to be the fastest growing segment of the sectionalizer market, by control type, from 2017 to 2022. This type of sectionalizer is equipped with an onboard memory storage that records the past events the unit has seen. This segment is being driven by factors such as increasing need for distribution automation and reduction in power outages.
Based on phase, the triple-single segment is estimated to grow at the fastest rate from 2017 to 2022. Triple-single reclosers provide cost-effective single-phase distribution feeder and achieve significant power reliability with the additional benefit of single-phase tripping. These type of reclosers are rapidly replacing three-phase reclosers in the power distribution system. The demand for triple-single recloser is expected to be higher in developed countries, and it is expensive compared to three-phase and single-phase reclosers.
