Key Drivers and Restraints of Global Distribution Board Market

  • Increase in demand for electricity in residential, industrial, and commercial sectors is driving the demand for distribution boards. Global demand for electricity increased by 4%, or 900 TWh, in 2018. China and the U.S., the two major power markets in the world, accounted for 70% share of the global demand for electricity in 2018. Demand for electricity increased by 8.5% in China in 2018. This was led by the growth of the industrial sector, including iron, steel, and other metals, expansion in cement and construction sectors, and high demand for cooling systems.
  • Increase in construction & infrastructure activities across the globe is likely to drive the global distribution board market. Key developing countries are bringing in various reforms and regulations to boost infrastructure development and the real estate sector. The construction sector in GCC has been expanding at a rapid pace. Building & construction (valued at US$ 69,023 Mn) was the largest market in GCC in 2018, followed by energy (valued at US$ 38,372 Mn) and infrastructure (valued at US$ 17,601 Mn). The UAE, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, and Qatar remain the top three countries in the construction industry in GCC.
  • Qatar will be hosting the FIFA World Cup in 2022. It would become the first Gulf nation to do so. Qatar has begun preparing stadiums and facilities for the World Cup 2022. The country would be investing around US$ 6 Bn toward this. Thus, demand for distribution boards is estimated to rise significantly in the country in the near future. However, lack of awareness regarding the quality of distribution boards is likely to restrain the global distribution board market during the forecast period.
