In year 2020, the metal-clad switchgear market is expected to witness a decline owing to the outbreak of COVID-19. The pandemic has resulted in a complete or partial lockdown which has majorly hampered the production process of several manufacturing industries and businesses. Additionally, trade barriers between countries are adversely impacting the market, resulting in the increase in production costs for manufacturing of metal-clad switchgears. However, the production of industrial machines is expected to bounce back at a significant pace during the second half of the year due to the easing up of lockdowns in several countries.

As per Growth Market Reports industry analyst Akshata Ahire, “The North America Metal-Clad Switchgear Market is anticipated to witness significant growth during forecast period 2020-2027 driven by increasing technological advancements across several sectors in the region. However, the high manufacturing cost associated with metal-clad switchgear is a major factor hindering the growth of the market. The rising awareness about grid modernization and replacement of old installations is expected to create substantial growth opportunities in the market. Key players in the market are actively focusing on R&D activities to further developments and advancements.”
