Many developing countries such as India, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, and Vietnam, among others focusing on industrialization growth. In India, the government is focusing on developing industries under the “Make in India’ program. It is a major national program of the government of India designed to facilitate investment, foster innovation, enhance skill development, protect intellectual property, and build best-in-class manufacturing infrastructure in the country. The focus of the Make in India program is on 25 sectors, including automobiles, automobile components, aviation, biotechnology, chemicals, construction, defense manufacturing electrical machinery, electronic systems, food processing, IT & BPM, leather, media and entertainment, mining, oil and gas, pharmaceuticals, ports and shipping, railways, renewable energy, roads and highways, space, textile and garments, thermal power, tourism and hospitality, and wellness. Similarly, Saudi Arabia is growing and diversifying its economy to achieve Vision 2030. The development and growth of the industrial and manufacturing industry are being catalyzed by an attractive ecosystem consisting of industrial cities, well-developed infrastructure, high-quality utility supplies, and a well-established logistics network. Further, industrial production in Saudi Arabia increased by 0.60% in May of 2021 over the same month in the previous year. Therefore, with the growing industrialization in developing countries, the demand for electric insulators will increase.
The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken several industries. The tremendous growth in the spread of the virus has urged governments worldwide to impose strict restrictions on vehicles and human’s movement. Due to travel bans, mass lockdowns, and business shutdowns, the pandemic has affected economies and countless industries in various countries. The lockdown imposition has resulted in lesser production of commodities, goods, and services. Manufacturing, automotive, semiconductor & electronics, oil & gas, mining, aviation, and other industries have witnessed a decline in their operations due to the temporary shutdown of activities. The worldwide lockdown to minimize the transmission of virus has significantly disrupted the supply chain activities along with production volume across several manufacturers especially the small & medium enterprise owners. The semiconductor industry took a significant hit as the demand for electric insulator components was lowered from industrial sector and other end users. The production of electric insulator was at halt during lockdowns. However, with the uplifting of lockdowns and vaccination processes in 2021, the manufacturing of insulator has started again. And also, the demand for electricity increases all across the globe due to re-opening of factories and offices. Thus, in 2021, there is an expectation of increase in the demand of electric insulator market.
Key Findings of Study:
The global electric insulator market is segmented on product type, material type, application, end user, and geographic regions.
