Insulators in India are a part of the Transmission line equipment industry. They are broadly divided into three types on the basis of material - Ceramic/Porcelain insulators, Composite/ Polymer insulators and Glass insulators. They are further divided on types with respect to the voltage levels they suit. Ceramic insulators are the ones which are popular in India however; the market for composite insulators is also increasing rapidly. Indian market is facing competition from cheap Chinese products which are being imported into the market on a large scale. This phenomenon is impacting the domestic market for the same. The government is although providing lucrative benefits for the industry and the growth potential is huge. Increased attention to the power sector and transmission and distribution sector is providing a fillip to the insulators market a well.
