Overall electrical equipment industry maintains growth at 9.4% upto August 2010-11

Key Observations:

  • Surge in demand of Control Cables
  • HV & EHV Breakers and HV Control Panels continue to grow
  • In LV Switchgear products only ACBs and MCBs show positive growth
  • Distribution Transformers production slips in August 2011. Power Transformer production continue to grow with export orders supports.
  • Transmission Line Towers production for domestic demand declines but conductors shows sign of revival
