According to the latest report by IMARC Group, titled “Safety Switches Market: Global Industry Trends, Share, Size, Growth, Opportunity and Forecast 2020-2025,” the global safety switches market size reached US$ 1.55 Billion in 2019. Safety switches, also known as disconnect or load break switches, refer to devices whose primary function is to disconnect the source of electricity when an electrical fault is detected. These switches detect the change in the electrical current and turn the power off in about 0.3 seconds. Nowadays, safety switches are increasingly being used to provide protection against overcurrent, circuit overloads, short-circuiting and heat generated damage.
Global Safety Switches Market Trends:
Safety switches minimize the risk of electricity-related fires, electric shock, injury and death. They also protect personnel by providing physical interlocking of guard doors and equipment. On account of these advantages, they are utilized in numerous industries, ranging from automotive, food and pulp and paper to robotics and pharmaceutical. Apart from this, governments of various nations are implementing regulations for equipment and personnel safety. Due to this, the installation of safety switches has become mandatory in commercial, industrial and residential verticals across various countries. Furthermore, the arrival of energy-efficient and environment-friendly systems have also boosted the sales of these switches worldwide. Moreover, the leading companies are focusing on producing safety switches with the latest technology. For instance, Siemens AG, a German multinational conglomerate, has introduced non-metallic and stainless-steel switches that offer corrosion-resistance to assure trouble-free performance in the most severe conditions. Owing to these factors, the market value is projected to reach US$ 2.24 Billion by 2025, expanding at a CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period (2020-2025).
