The MV switchgear market in Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) has evolved over the years with the emergence of local participants. Although the traditional global players still hold the majority of market share, local manufacturers have gained technological expertise to surface as important regional suppliers. It was only a matter of time before domestic companies came under the spotlight, considering the double digit growth in the demand for electricity from in almost all GCC countries. As there is no sign of let up in demand, GCC countries are aggressively spending on their power sector to improve their generation capacity. This will infuse funds into the transmission and distribution (T&D) segment, which, in turn, will increase the adoption of MV switchgears.Further, the
GCC grid interconnection project and continued expansion of the oil & gas sector are also expected to indirectly drive the MV switchgears market. Infrastructure development and continuous investment in industries will ensure that this market continues to grow at a healthy rate. Further, the upcoming 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar will attract investors to infrastructure and construction, which will directly propel the market.However, despite the market potential, suppliers´ margins have narrowed due to the rise in raw material (metals) costs and stiff competition among manufacturers. Delays in the execution stages, which result in a long gestation periods during the equipment supply stage, and high lead time for sub-components have also restrained the growth of the market to some extent. As the sub-suppliers are usually overbooked with orders, manufacturers are hard pressed to reduce lead times.
