LONDON – In 2010 consumption of ceramic electrical insulators in EU totaled 73,000 tons; it is a 7% increase comparing with the previous year. 30% of ceramic electrical insulators consumed were imported. China provides 53% of import product. India is the large supplier as well with 18% share in EU import supplies.
Though, EU remains the large producer and exporter of ceramic electrical insulators. In 2010 EU production accounted for 74,400 tons. Germany and UK are the largest producers. Lapp Insulators, Seves Group and Morgan Technical Ceramics are the major manufacturing companies of ceramic electrical insulators in EU.
Ceramic electrical insulators market in EU is characterized as innovative and relatively high value. Production of ceramic insulators had started in 1920s and since then they has managed to nearly replace the glass ones in electrical distribution. The advantages of ceramic insulators are long-term durability, resistance to mechanical effects, excellent electrical properties. Nowadays new composite (non-ceramic) insulators present a serious competition mostly because of their light weight.
