Overview of the global transfer switch market

Transfer switches play a critical role in shifting power loads between two sources. It is essential in emergency or standby systems. These switches are used in other applications also such as data centers, hospitals, and commercial setups. Since many facilities require a continuous power supply, many have standby systems like generators so that when there is a power failure, the switch seamlessly transfers over to the auxiliary system. With a boom in technology and manufacturing, the need for these switches is bound to increase. Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global transfer switch market to grow steadily at a CAGR of close to 7% by 2020.

Given the challenges of finding an adequate power to run a business unit of any kind, integrated systems are very much in demand. These power distribution unit (PDU) systems can be used with transfer switches to offer a seamless supply of power. These systems are also quite compact and very useful when space is at a premium. An integrated system combines two or more systems in one unit, which not only saves on space but also switches over smoothly so that sensitive information and equipment (computers) are available to users around the clock.
