Impact of COVID-19 on Saudi Arabia Switchgear Market

The COVID-19 spread further demonstrated a decline in the demand for power from the industrial and commercial sectors as it pulled China, India, and other countries towards a lockdown. The utilities spending for investing in grid improvements has decreased rapidly as more nations have announced lockdowns to stop the COVID-19 spread. Additionally, COVID-19 had an impact on the swtichgear market's overall product demand, causing a decline in power investment projects across varied applications. The COVID-19 outbreak forced several companies in the power sector across regions to shut down their production facilities and processing industries as countries get closer to going into complete lockdown to stop the COVID-19 outbreak. Companies all around the world have delayed big power projects, investments, and acquisitions, which has slowed the market's expansion. Additionally, the COVID-19 epidemic had an impact on current projects and planned investments in the electricity sector.

Competitive Landscape

Due to its technological and financial advantages over air-insulated switchgear, gas-insulated switchgear currently holds a monopoly on the Saudi Arabian switchgear market. Due to the growing demand for such switchgear in the industrial and power utility sectors, high voltage switchgear has also amassed a massive revenue share.
