Worldwide Transfer Switch Industry to 2026 - Key Players Include ABB, General Electric and Caterpillar Among Others -

·4 min read

The "Transfer Switch Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2021-2026" report has been added to's offering.

The global transfer switch market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Looking forward, the publisher expects the global transfer switch market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during 2021-2026.

A transfer switch is an electromechanical device that is used to interchange load between two power sources either electronically or mechanically. It provides a rapid transition between multiple power sources to ensure uninterrupted power supply. Manual transfer switches require manual access to a generator or power source, which can be flipped to restore power. On the other hand, automatic transfer switches (ATS) do not require external inputs and can immediately flip to generator power in case of a power cut. These switches offer increased reliability and safety, are cost effective and less hazardous to operate. These switches find wide application in industrial and commercial settings such as factories, warehouses, hospitals and schools where continuous power supply is a necessity.

The growing need for stable sources of power supply, coupled with the rapid industrialization across the globe, is the key factor driving the growth of the market. Furthermore, frequent occurrence of unexpected burnouts, voltage fluctuations, power outages, blackouts and weather uncertainties are also contributing to the growing demand for transfer switches. The increasing dependence of industrial, commercial as well as residential sector on electric generators for uninterrupted power supply is also augmenting the demand of these devices across various regions. Additionally, favorable government policies pertaining to operational safety along with an increasing demand for Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) networks is further stimulating the market growth. Other factors propelling the market growth include increased focus on research and development (R&D) activities to develop enhanced product variants.
