Global Circuit Breaker Market to Reach US$ 10.6 Billion by 2028, Impelled by Increasing demand for Power Transmission

Published on Dec 10, 2021

According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled "Circuit Breaker Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2023-2028," the global circuit breaker market reached a value of US$ 8.6 Billion in 2022. 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.

We are regularly tracking the direct effect of COVID-19 on the market, along with the indirect influence of associated industries. These observations will be integrated into the report.

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.
