Electricity Intelligence - The Global Power Infrastructure Market (Transformers, Switchgear & Substations) Report & Database Ed 2, 2013-2017


In many mature markets, the balance of the market has shifted from new installations towards refurbishment and replacement, while developing nations focus on new installations. The global market, therefore, is driven by various discrete dynamics.


The Global Power Infrastructure report provides valuable context and additional insight into this market and consists of several sections. A detailed historical overview discusses the origins of the electrical supply industry, which provides the basis for a discussion of today's market factors and the future of the infrastructure sector. Our definition of the Infrastructure sector is also included, along with an illustration of our annual demand data (forecasted to 2016) and intelligence on infrastructure companies.
