2021-2031 North America Electrical Testing Services Market Outlook Compared to 2016-2020

Driven by the rapid industrialization and technological advancements in North America, the electrical testing services market will rise at 5.9% CAGR between 2021 and 2031 in the comparison above 0.9% CAGR registered during 2016-2020.

Transformer testing and other major service types are currently in high demand across diverse industries as transformer testing is essential for confirming the performance and specification of a transformer. Performing maintenance and testing periodically to maintain the working efficiency of an electrical device is of prime importance. This makes electric testing services highly sought-after in North America.

Increasing focus on personal safety is encouraging customers to invest in advanced electrical testing solutions. As electricity has the potential of fatally injuring a person, unchecked electrical equipment has a greater probability of causing hazard due to instances such as leakage, short-circuiting, faults in wiring, leakage of lubricants, and others. To counter the risk of such incidents, focus on electrical testing services will skyrocket.

What Is the Impact of the COVID-19 Crisis on the North America Electrical Testing Services Market?

The COVID-19 outbreak has resulted in a huge reduction in electricity usage. To limit the threat of coronavirus, governments around the world were compelled to reduce commercial activities.

Consumer lifestyle has altered as a result of COVID-19 outbreak, with people preferring to stay at home and work from home more in place of stepping out. As a result, home load demand has increased. On the flip side, commercial and industrial load demand has decreased significantly.

Restrictions imposed to contain the virus created new obstacles in the power sector, hampering technical and financial activities alike. Thus most utilities around the world implemented a disaster management strategy to deal with COVID-19-induced adversities.

In recent years, regulatory standards governing a product's health, environment quality, and safety have gotten stricter, prompting producers to become more concerned about product safety and seek third-party certifications. These factors are projected to have a significant impact on the electrical inspection service market in North America, also helping in its post-COVID-19 recovery in the coming years.

Country-wise Insights

What Percent of Electrical Testing Services Sales will concentrate in the U.S.?

FMI has projected the U.S. to remain one of the most lucrative markets throughout the forecast period. One of the key factors supporting growth is the presence of several end-use industries. According to FMI, the U.S. electric testing service market will account for 57.1% of sales in North America in 2021.

The power sector and steel plants in the U.S. will be leading contributors towards electrical testing service market share. According to the report, power generation stations will remain chief end users in the U.S. They will be trailed by railways and data centers.

Will Canada’s Regulation and Electric Code Give the Market a Priority?

Standards Council of Canada (SCC) has few electrical codes for the testing and service of electrical and electronic devices. The service proving companies mU.S.t follow the code issued by the SCC for avoiding fines, penalties, or bans for selling electrical products as well as servicing them. This also creates a conducive environment for the growth of the electrical testing service market.

Canada has a significantly steadier growth perspective due to evolving market in infrastructure and commercial establishments that require electrical devices. The market will register growth at 6.1% CAGR for the assessment period of 2021-2031.

What is the Mexico Electrical Testing Services Market Outlook?

Mexico will register high growth rate in the region due to the rapid industrialization and urbanization witnessed in the last few years. Also, the market will gain traction due to the disinterest of the Government of Mexico from being the only service provider in the country.

After the involvement of private and other service providers, the Mexico market will attain a market share of 19.1% in 2031 with a 6.4% CAGR.

Category-wise Insights

Which is the Preferred Electrical Testing Services Type?
