Demand for Di-Electric Gases Surging within Power Utilities Industry; SF6 Gas to Account for 83% of Sales

The global di-electric gases market is expected to post comparatively higher gains through 2021, as demand from several end-use industries such as chemicals & petrochemicals, heavy metals, transportation, and others continues increasing through 2021.  

As per FMI’s analysis, the global di-electric gases market grew at a CAGR of 7.6% between 2016 and 2020. Rising installations of gas insulated switch gear and growing adoption of gas based transmission across China, Japan, and the U.S. have fueled the demand of di-electric gases.  

Furthermore, surging demand for SF6 and dry air from power utilities industries, will aid the overall expansion of di-electric gases market. Additionally, application of other gases in power utilities such as nitrogen, fluoroketones, and SF6 for insulation purposes is improving the demand. 

However, stringent government regulations associated with the emission of toxic compounds due to the electrical discharge of SF6 gas will likely limit the growth of the market. As a result, demand for alternative gas transmission products is increasing, curbing the sales. 

Hence, leading players are extensively investing in developing alternative products in order to replace SF6 technology, due to its adverse effects to environment. Thereby, creating ample of opportunities for the emerging players for developing an alternative technology and gain their competitive edge in the industry. 

According to the FMI, the global di-electric gases market will reach a valuation of US$ 241.4 million by the end of 2031. 

“Sustainability concerns for SF6 gas production within power utility industry is pushing the manufacturers to actively conduct research & development for developing alternative gas,” says the FMI analyst
