Global Circuit Breaker Market to Reach US$ 11.8 Billion by 2032, Impelled by Increasing demand for Power Transmission

December 10, 2021 | Energy & Mining

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Circuit Breaker Market Report by Product Type (Indoor Circuit Breakers, Outdoor Circuit Breakers), Voltage (Low Voltage, Medium Voltage, High Voltage), Technology (Air, Vacuum, Oil, SF6), End-Use (Transmission and Distribution, Renewable, Power Generation, Railways), and Region 2024-2032," the global circuit breaker market reached a value of US$ 8.9 Billion in 2023. A circuit breaker refers to an electrochemical switching device that is generally used for detecting a fault function. It helps to protect and control the electrical power system during excessive electrical supply that occurs due to short circuits or overload. It is usually manufactured using superior conductive materials that can withstand excessive heating, such as copper, steel, and aluminum. Additionally, it is equipped with a pair of fixed and moving metallic contacts that allow the flow of electric current into the circuit. Consequently, it aids in reducing the risks of fire hazards that happen due to equipment failure and wiring issues.

Global Circuit Breaker Market Trends:

The global market is primarily driven by the increasing requirement for power transmission. This is supported by rising investments by private and public firms in renewable energy resources for power generation. Along with this, the large inflow of investments by the government of numerous countries to expand the power generation capacity in order to meet the electricity requirements across remote locations as well as to renovate the grid infrastructure are propelling the market growth. Moreover, continual technological advancements across the globe are providing an impetus to the market growth. For instance, the increasing popularity of smart grids is expected to positively influence the market growth on the global level. Other factors, including rapid industrialization and extensive research and development (R&D) activities conducted by key players to introduce product variants with improved corrosion resistance, are contributing to the market growth further. On account of the aforementioned factors, the market is anticipated to reach a value of US$ 11.8 Billion by 2032.
