The dielectric gases market is estimated to rise 1.8x with a very healthy 7% CAGR between 2020 and 2030. The coronavirus pandemic is anticipated to have a detrimental impact on the dielectric gases industry. The global dielectric gases market is going through a short-term downturn during the coronavirus contagion outbreak.
This can be attributed to the sharp reduction in industrial and commercial activity around the world during the crisis period, which in turn has limited electricity usage, and the requirement for dielectric gases in high-voltage applications.
The rising popularity of compact substations, with growing bias towards reduction of cost space, and maintenance, along with superior operational performance and smaller product specifications are favoring the adoption of dielectric gases in high voltage devices throughout the projection period.
