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

Surge in demand for SF6 gases from the power industry is expected to remarkably contribute towards the expansion of the di-electric gases market, finds Future Market Insights (FMI) in a study. According to the report, the market is forecast to exhibit 7.6% CAGR by 2031. Growth will continue especially as the demand from power utilities continues rising. As per FMI, SF6 gases will account for over 85% of sales in 2021. Bullish growth is on cards despite a period of temporary lull following curbs imposed amid COVID-19.

Globally, the di-electric gases market is driven by the increasing demand for SF6 gas in power utilities, transportation, and chemicals & petrochemicals industries. The power utilities and transportation industries among them have emerged as key end users, with power utilities accounting for over 50% of di-electric gases sold. Promising growth is on cards as there is unavailability of any substitute products for SF6. The application of SF6 as an insulating medium in gas insulated products, such as switchgears, transformers, and gas insulated lines will therefore gain momentum in the coming years.

Dielectric gases are dielectric materials that exist in the gaseous state. These gases are generally used as insulating medium in high voltage transmission units, such as transformers, switchgears and gas insulated lines. The gas used as an insulating media must have chemical inertness, good dielectric strength, high thermal stability, non-flammability, and low boiling point. The most common gases used across the globe for insulation purpose in dielectric gases are dry air, Nitrogen, SF6, fluoroketones (FK), fluoronitrile (FN) and others. In the others segment perfluorcarbon (PFC), fluoroxirane (FO), and all the remaining combinations used as dielectric medium in gas insulated transmission units.

These factors will prove crucial for continued growth of the global di-electric gases market.
