Sustainability and Increasing Demand of Renewable Power is pushing the Busbar Trunking System Market on a High Growth Curve

A busbar is an electrical conducting unit which performs as a junction where all incoming and outgoing currents meet. They are mostly used in electric power distribution units when electric current needs to be collected at a point and then distributed accordingly. They are generally made up of copper and aluminium because of their high electrical conductivity, low cost, ease of availability and good corrosion resistance properties. On similar lines, a busbar trunking system is a system of electric power distribution made up of aluminium or copper bus bars which are enclosed for safety and protection from foreign bodies.

Busbars trunking systems are compact in construction and hence require less space for installation as compared to the traditional cable systems. The heat released while distribution and transmission tends to make the system hot. But the well-defined metal casing design helps bus bars system to cool down much faster. They offer tremendous flexibility and scalability as compared to the cable system as they require minimum effort and cost on addition of any extra number of floors or rooms in a building. The cost of installation of busbars is also low as they come pre-installed and hence they just need to be mounted and connected in the correct manner. Busbars offer better resistance due to their design and built than the cable systems, which is crucial in case of short circuits. Due to this compact design and steel enclosure, busbars create a lower electromagnetic field during power transmission. Also this enclosure helps protect the busbars from biting and damage caused by rodents. Moreover, busbars do not carry the flame, poisonous gases, etc. in case of fire outbreak.
Busbar Trunking System Market

The major function of busbar trunking system is the transmission and distribution of electricity in various industrial units. Hence, many engineering corporations employ busbar trunking systems for their power transmission and distribution purposes because these systems offer the following benefits such as low space requirement, easy installation and fitting, upfront network configuration according to the electricity load demands, high reliability in case of short-circuiting fire, and hence increased security and safety. Busbar trunking systems are preferred in wind power generation and distribution centres, data centres, high-rise buildings, retail outlets, shopping malls, IT hubs, manufacturing and process industries, inventories and warehouses.

The developed and developing economies are expected to contribute to the growth of the busbar trunking system market because of the tremendous advantages this system offers over the traditional cable systems. Governments across the globe are focussing on increased adoption of energy efficient practices due to sustainability.The ever-increasing global population have created the problem of living space and so there arises a need for safe and low space requiring power transmission and distribution systems. These space constraints are expected to drive the busbar trunking systems market. Also, to cater the power requirements of this increasing population, busbar trunking systems market is expected to grow further, particularly in the developing economies. Following the Kyoto Protocol, global communities have decided to cut down their emissions levels and hence have focussed their attention on renewable sources of energy like solar, wind and tidal energy. Busbar trunking system is used as an interconnection of wind turbines and solar panels with switchgear, which is in turn connected to the transformers. Hence, because of this increased global focus on energy generation via the wind and solar mediums, the demand for busbar systems is expected to rise tremendously in the next 5 years. Urbanization trends including living and working in high-rise buildings, increasing penetration of IT applications like Internet of Things (IoT) that create humongous amounts of data which is processed and stored by large data centres, increasing manufacturing and industrial activities in developing economies like India and China, are together expected to boost the demand for busbar trunking systems markets in the near future. However, due to factors like fluctuating cost of raw materials involved and lack of technological advancements in busbar trunking systems, the growth of busbar trunking system market could experience a slow pace.
