Based on transmission mode, the open transition segment held a considerable market share in the Global transfer switch market in 2019. Open Transition is the most common type of transfer switch and is used in applications. This type of transfer switch is adopted across all small-scale businesses, hotels, and small-sized manufacturing and commercial buildings, which can withstand brief power interruptions. Moreover, open transition transfer switch is highly reliable due to its simplicity of the overall process.
Based on type, the automatic transfer switch acquired a significant market share in the Global transfer switch market in 2019. The growth of the segment is attributed to factors such as an aging grid infrastructure in emerging economies, inadequate power infrastructure, rising degree of necessity for alternative power sources, and automatic electric power generation to back-up supply from utilities. Moreover, most automatic transfer switches also include provisions for manual operations for transfer, which would mean that the ATS equipment can also be operated manually if required. Therefore, the ability of automatic transfer switches to provide both the automatic and manual choice of facilities is projected to strongly contribute to the demand for automatic transfer switches.
As per MarkNtel Advisors’ study, the major players who acquired a considerable market share in the Global transfer switch market include Schneider Electric, ABB, Russelectric, Eaton, Cummins, Caterpillar, Generac, etc.
