Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the “Global Disconnect Switches Market 2015-2019” report to their offering.

The global disconnect switch market to grow at a CAGR of 6.99% over the period 2014-2019.

Global Disconnect Switch Market 2015-2019, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market in APAC, the Americas, and EMEA; it also covers the landscape of the global disconnect switch market and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report includes a discussion on the key vendors operating in this market.

Management and refurbishment of aging transmission and distribution infrastructure is likely to boost commercial prospects of the high-voltage disconnect switches market. We expect this segment to grow at the highest rate compared to low and medium-voltage disconnect switches. This growth may also be attributed to anticipated expansions in the smart-grid market during 2015-2019.

The widespread use of smart grids in North America and Europe has enhanced the scope for disconnect switches market vendors. End-users from the smart grid industry include utilities, equipment providers, service providers, and investors. High-voltage disconnect switches are required for smart grids networks while smart meters and advanced metering infrastructure can utilize disconnect switches to enable or disable utility services remotely. So, we expect the growing numbers of smart grids to boost market growth.

According to the report, transmission and distribution substations include disconnect switches as essential components. In these substations, the incoming supply lines and outgoing feeders/transmission lines should have disconnect switches installed in-line with the circuit breaker. A disconnect switch is used to isolate safely circuit breakers, transformers, and transmission lines for maintenance procedures.

Further, the report states that fluctuating prices of raw materials hampers vendors’ business plans in terms of forecasting demand, developing and executing manufacturing plans, and managing inventory. Such fluctuations can also result in reduced profit margins.
