Transfer switch is an electrical device that switches load among two power sources including generator and utility power. Transfer switches are either manual or automatic. These switches supply immediate transition between two or more power sources that helps in continuous power supply when power goes off. Transfer switch has many end user applications in residential and industrial sectors.
Rising demand for continuous and steady power supply drives the growth of transfer switch market. Increasing acceptance of smart grid technology in the developed regions also contributes to the growth of transfer switch market. However, lack of implementation and awareness regarding use of transfer switch in developing countries may hinder the market expansion. Moreover, regular maintenance of transfer switch is a major challenge for the transfer switch market. Nevertheless, rapid industrialization and increasing urbanization is expected to provide impetus growth for transfer switch market in the near future.
