LV and MV Switchgear Market in India 2014-2018

A switchgear is a combination of components such as switches and circuit breakers that are used for controlling and distributing electric current across end-users. The use of a switchgear enables continuous transfer of electric current while protecting against current overload, short circuit, and insulation failure. It also provides safe isolation from current-driven parts and modifies the load-carrying system at each level of installation. Switchgears are divided into three types based on its load-bearing capacity: Low-voltage (LV) switchgear, medium-voltage (MV) switchgear, and high-voltage switchgear. Switchgears are used across various sectors such as Commercial, Residential, Infrastructure, T&D, Power, and Others. TechNavio's analysts forecast the LV and MV Switchgear market in......
