North America Electrical Testing Service Market is expected to reach US$ 1.8 Bn in 2021

As per FMI, North America electrical testing services market is estimated to total US$ 1.8 Bn in 2021. Increasing installation of power transmission equipment such as transformers across refineries, manufacturing plants, railways, and others are fueling the demand for electrical testing services.

Historically, demand for electrical testing services in North America grew at 0.9% CAGR between 2016 and 2020. However, with increasing government initiatives to develop power generation infrastructure across the U.S. and Canada, the market is anticipated to top US$ 3.28 Bn by 2031.

For instance, according to the Consumer Energy Alliance, in May 2020, the Trump administration announced receiving approval for constructing of the biggest power generation project in the U.S, the Gemini Solar Project.

It will cover nearly 28 of the landmass in Nevada and is expected to produce around 690 MW of electricity. A slew of such initiatives is estimated to create lucrative opportunities in the market.

Further, increasing concern regarding the workplace safety and rising incidence of electricity leakage, faults in wiring, short-circuiting, leakage of lubricants, and others are propelling the demand in the market. On account of this, sales of electrical testing services in North America are projected to rise at 5.9% CAGR over the forecast period 2021-2031.

Based on service type, the transformer testing and circuit breaker testing segments are anticipated to collectively hold the lion’s share in the market, accounting for nearly 38.3% of sales in 2021. Increasing use of these services to ensure the uniformity of windings in all the connection to avoid short circuits is driving the growth in segments.

“Growing government emphasis on renewable energy generation and rapid expansion of transmission & distribution sector to meet the surging energy demand in countries such as the U.S., Canada, and Mexico is augmenting the growth in the market,” says a FMI analyst.
