    Hollow Core Composite Insulators Market Insights

    Insulators are electrical equipment that support and separate electrical conductors without enabling current to pass through them. Hollow core composite insulators are proven to be a direct replacement for porcelain and glass insulators, especially in high-voltage applications, owing to properties such as lightweight and superior pollution and insulation performance. They are highly resistant to vandalism and have better hydrophobic performance. These insulators have three major components: FRP rod, sheds, and flanges. FRP rods are generally manufactured from glass fibers impregnated with epoxy resins and enclosed by silicone rubber sheds along with corners covered with aluminum flanges.

    The hollow core composite insulators market is estimated to grow at an excellent rate over the next five years to reach an estimated value of US$ 443.9 million in 2025. The market is driven by 

    • Increasing primary energy consumption,
    • growing interest towards high-performance and safer power equipment, and
    • the gradual shift from porcelain to composite insulators 

    A noteworthy trend that is creating a disrupting environment in the market is a sheer interest towards EHV and UHV apparatus, which, in turn, has created a positive impact in the demand for hollow core composite insulators as they are preferably used in such apparatus.

    Market Witnessing Gradual Consolidation

    In recent years, the market has witnessed a gradual market consolidation as the major players are acquiring other medium- to small-sized players to enhance their product portfolio and to expand their geographical reach.

    Some of the foremost mergers & acquisitions that took place in the market include

    • the acquisition of Lapp Insulators by Pfisterer SEFAG in 2015
    • the acquisition of MacLean Power System France by Mascheinfabrick Reinhausen in 2017
    • More recently in 2019, Mascheinfabrick Reinhausen formed a JV with Aditya Birla Insulators, creating Aditya Birla Power Composites Limited, for the manufacture and sale of composite hollow core insulators.

    Market Share Analysis

    Market Share by Application Type

    The market is segmented based on the application type as cable termination, instrument transformer, circuit breaker, surge arrester, bushing, and others. Circuit Breaker is expected to remain the largest segment of the market during the forecast period; however, surge arrester is likely to grow at the highest rate during the same period.

    Market Share by Shed Material Type

    Based on the shed material type, the market is segmented into HTV, LSR, and others. HTV is likely to remain the largest shed material segment of the market during the forecast period. HTV insulators are generally cost-effective and are widely used in the Asian market, especially in the Chinese market. On the contrary, LSR sheds are preferably used in the European market and dominate the region.

    Market Share by Voltage Type

    Hollow core composite insulators are used in various applications with a wide range of voltage ratings. The market is segmented based on voltage type into less than 300kV, 300kV-600kV, and more than 600kV. The rating has been designed to meet the application and specific requirements. More than 600kV is likely to grow at the highest rate in the market during the forecast period, owing to the growing interest towards EHV and UHV apparatus with voltage ratings of 720 kV, 800 kV, etc.

    Regional Analysis

    In terms of region, Asia-Pacific is projected to remain the largest market for hollow core composite insulators during the forecast period.  China is the growth engine of the region’s market and has been very active from the past few years in using hollow core composite insulators.
