Protective Relay Industry Trends and Overview

“Protective Relay Market To Grow at a CAGR Of 6.5% From 2016 to 2021”

The protective relay market is projected to reach USD 4.54 billion by 2021, growing at a CAGR of 6.5% during the forecast period. The increasing investments in transmission & distribution infrastructure—including substations—and transmission & distribution lines, coupled with the increasing urbanization in developing nations, have propelled the growth of the protective relay market. Substations in developed nations are being modernized to ensure uninterrupted power supply with minimum loss. This is achieved by replacing the traditional electromagnetic and static relays with advanced numeric and digital relays. These relays also retain the data, which allows utilities or other users to track power outages caused by faults.
