Global Switchgear Market to hit $84 Billion by 2020

While the potential growth of the switchgear space will be a boon to manufacturers of the product worldwide, the market will be rocked somewhat by upcoming Asian manufacturers posing challenges to established ones. In the Chinese high-voltage switchgear market, established international players face tough competition from the local manufacturers, which together account for almost 85% of the market. Even in India, domestic manufacturers hold a significant share of the market in the medium- and low-voltage segments. The presence of so many manufacturers in the arena, particularly in the Chinese and Indian markets, will induce intense competition and huge pricing pressures.

Laparoscopy Will Drive Hernia Repair Market to $2.5 billion by 2021

The global market for hernia repair will expand from $1.8 billion in 2014 to reach $2.4 billion by 2021, representing a moderate compound annual growth rate of 4%. Studies have shown that laparoscopic repair is more expensive than open repair by around $500, which may negatively affect adoption of the technique. Laparoscopy is very technically demanding, and few surgeons are yet completely trained and effective in performing the procedure.
