According to the latest findings by the International Energy Agency (IEA), 30% of the final worldwide energy consumption was due to the energy consumed in buildings in 2018. Evidently, the total energy consumption in these buildings is attributable to the electricity consumption for cooling systems, household appliances, and other plug loads in the buildings that use circuit breakers of high, medium, or low voltage levels. The global import of the circuit breakers for a voltage less than or equal to 1 volt alone was valued to be $7.2 billion in 2017, according to the International Trade Center (ITC). Similarly, the high and medium voltage circuit breakers had observed an augmented import. This resonates with the fact that the global circuit breaker market had a market size $7.12 billion as of 2018. Furthermore, the demand for circuit breakers is projected to grow with a modest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 4.07% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2025.
APAC has been witnessing a definite surge in the industrial sector with a gamut of industries manufacturing a myriad of products. This has a direct impact on the circuit breaker market because industries work on a high voltage, and it is imperative to use circuit breakers to protect the electrical circuits. Furthermore, countries such as China, India, Indonesia, and the Philippines are observing a consistent growth in the residential and commercial building construction. In addition to that, China is the leading producer of electrical appliances that use circuit breakers. The trade from the countries is largely supporting the automotive and non-automotive transportation equipment industry which is a substantial circuit breaker marketplace. 2018 saw enhanced manufacturing of various good along with a lot of construction projects in APAC with a subsequent augmented application of circuit breakers in the region. APAC had the greatest regional circuit breaker market share of 37.71% in 2018.
Circuit breakers, operated on a current sensing protective relay, are devices that save electric circuits by arc interruption and other ways. They are rated on the basis of ampere interrupting capacity (AIC) and are classified as common trip breakers, SF6 circuit breakers or others. Owing to their indispensable use in electrical applications, circuit breaker marketplace is diverse in industries such as automotive & non-automotive transportation, residential and commercial buildings, and any sector that uses electricity.
The market value of commercial properties in 2018 exceeded that in 2009 by 15%, according to the latest findings by the World Bank. With the increased construction of commercial offices and other buildings such as malls and shopping centers, the circuit breaker market is making strides in the sector. The key application of circuit breakers is found to be in the commercial buildings, which is estimated to grow with a moderate CAGR of 2.67% through to 2025.
Demand for the Uninterruptible Power Supply –
The global uninterruptible power supply market was gauged to be $10.5 billion to $11 billion worth in 2018, and the estimated escalation in demand translates to a steady CAGR between 3% and 5% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2025. The uninterruptible power supply is well-equipped with all the electrical amenities in more than the adequate amount in order to ensure continuous power supply. Subsequently, the circuit breaker market will observe a disruption in terms of sales, particularly because the uninterruptible power supply, will create a huge marketplace for the products that many players will leverage.
in Automotive and Non-Automotive Transportation Equipment –
The automotive transport equipment such as car haulers, trailers, and others are incorporated with circuit breakers for the safety of the circuits. Furthermore, non-automotive transportation equipment such as aerospace products, railroad equipment & rolling stock, ships & boats among others also have circuit breakers, and they are replaced consistently. The growth in the automotive and non-automotive the transportation equipment industry is largely attributed to the soaring sales in the circuit breaker market.
Sector Supporting the Circuit Breaker Market –
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN) document a dire need for affordable and safe housing for the overwhelming population outflow that is projected to substantially influence the residential real estate sector. The expansion of the real estate industry across the globe will give rise to a boosted demand for circuit breakers that are inculcated throughout the buildings. The growth of the real estate will also warrant more transformers for power supply which use high voltage circuit breakers. These factors are held as the determinants for the demand influx in the circuit breaker market.
Market Trends –
Green Corridor Projects – The electricity generated from the natural
resources will need to be exported to national grids, which will create more
opportunities in the circuit breaker market.
The Emergence of
New Low-Voltage Substations – There is a discernible demand for
low-voltage substations in the non-urban remote areas, which is increasing the
circuit breaker market revenues.
Changes in Grid
Infrastructure – The
governments across the globe are bringing a seismic shift in the electricity the department by makings hefty investments in order to renovate the conventional
grid infrastructure. This change is chiefly increasing the demand for circuit
Market Challenges –
The major challenge in the circuit breaker market is pertaining to the safety aspects that are stringently regulated by organizations such as OSHA and NIOSH. SF6, which is a predominant substance used in circuit breakers, is hazardous and adversely affects the human body and environment. With the world taking a leap towards ecofriendly products, the consumption of substances such as SF6 is going downhill. However, circuit breakers are going to be an integral part of the electrical systems and have sustainable market demand for the existing and new vendors that are venturing into the business.
Market Key Players Perspective –
The major players striving to capitalize on the demand for circuit breaker from various sectors are ABB, Powell, TE Connectivity, Mitsubishi, Toshiba, Fuji Electric, Siemens, Eaton, and Schneider Electric.
