Prominent Growth Drivers Influencing Dielectric Gases Deployment

Growing Application in the Construction Industry to open Key Growth Opportunities

The global dielectric gas market is expanding due to a surge in the construction industry as a result of an increase in the residential and commercial infrastructure projects amid rapid urbanization. By 2032, the global construction volume will have increased by 86% to US$ 15.6 Trillion. Because of its high total electricity consumption, the industrial sector will generate a plethora of opportunities (about 55%).

Demand for medium voltage substations will increase due to an increase in the number of residential units that will necessitate the installation of IT and telecom infrastructure. HVAC systems and office equipment all contribute to demand generation. The outlook is positive, with a preference for dielectric gases for insulation.

Asia Pacific is a region that would garner a lot of attention and market share (APAC). During the forecast period, it would represent a highly profitable playing field for dielectric gases.

High Reliance on Sulfur Hexafluoride to enhance Market Growth

Demand for gas-insulated transmission lines is increasing, as are high-energy transportation operations and rapidly expanding power industries. Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) is a strong electronegative gas both at room temperature and at temperatures well above ambient, which explains its good arc-interruptibility and exceptional dielectric strength.

The breakdown voltage of SF6 is approximately three times greater than that of air at atmospheric pressure. It also has fast self-healing and recovery properties due to its heat transfer properties, as it can reform itself when separated under high gas-pressure conditions in an arc or electric discharge.

As a result, it is widely used in the electric power industry because it exhibits a variety of properties that make it suitable for apparatus used in the distribution and transmission of electric power. This is significantly contributing to the expansion of the global dielectric gas market.
