Megohmmeters Market: Overview
Rapid industrialization is creating a need for high-performance and low-risk devices. These devices are used for testing and maintaining safety at workplaces for employees. Various industries are using megohmmeters because of their high capacity and the ability to create DC voltage from an internal battery. The availability of megohmmeters in different voltage and current ranges is also helping end users to get megohmmeters as per their specific requirements. Megohmmeters are known for their advanced features such as programmable test run times, alarm functions, backlight, and others that ensure ease in operation. From the past few years, manufacturers of megohmmeters are adding new features and undertaking constant research and development activities to improve their performance. Considering such advancements, megohmmeters can be used for spot reading tests, testing insulations on generators, cables, motors, and others. Considering all the above factors, the demand for megohmmeters is expected to increase significantly.
Megohmmeters are also known as meggers, high-resistance testers, or teraohmmeters. Megohmmeters are used for measuring the electrical resistance of insulators of materials such as insulation jacket of conducting materials, wires, and other motor windings. Applications of megohmmeters include computer-controlled production testing, multi-layer insulation testing, absorption tests, and others.
Megohmmeters Market: Drivers and Restraints
One of the prime factors driving the growth of the megohmmeters market is that these devices can measure the resistance of insulation to determine the current. Testers use megohmmeters as these can help them identify faulty or damaged insulation that can lead to blown circuits, arc faults, and risk of electrical shock or fire at workplaces. Such applications of megohmmeters are some of the key factors fuelling the demand for megohmmeters and simultaneously driving market growth. In addition to this, megohmmeters are available in digital and analog forms which results in increasing demand as end users can choose megohmmeters as per their convenience. The demand for megohmmeters is significantly driven by their unique features and capabilities such as rugged nature, range of test voltage combination, and currents. Also, megohmmeters can perform automatic calculation of PI, DAR, and DD ratios. Increasing adoption of megohmmeters for routine maintenance of heavy-duty machinery to prevent loss due to current overload is fuelling the demand for megohmmeters. On the other hand, the fact that megohmmeters require an external energy source for operation is a disadvantage that is restraining market growth.
