Hybrid switchgear is a compact switchgear that comprises components of AIS (Air-Insulated Switchgear) & GIS (Gas-Insulated Switchgear). This technology enables the isolation of the circuit from the power source to ensure safe maintenance or troubleshooting. Key advantages offered by hybrid switchgear include high reliability, substation modularization, space-saving, enhanced performance, easy installation, and fewer switching components, among others. Due to these benefits, several energy consumers are increasingly adopting this technology to protect different electrical equipment from irregular surges.
The Global Hybrid Switchgear Market is expected to grow at a combined CAGR of around 11.5% during the forecast period, i.e., 2023-28. The growth of the market is projected to be driven mainly by the ever-increasing energy requirements & consumption, mounting focus on adopting renewable sources in the energy mix, the surging need to upgrade the aging substations & power plants, and the growing privatization of the power sector worldwide, especially in Australia, India, China, & Thailand and, consequently, increasing adoption of PASS (Plug and Switch System).
