$5.3 Bn AC Circuit Breaker Markets

Aug 11, 2023

Global AC Circuit Breaker Market

Dublin, July 12, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Global AC Circuit Breaker Market by Insulation Type (Air, Gas, Vacuum), Voltage (Medium, High, Very-high), Installation (Indoor, Outdoor), End-Use Industry (Transmission & Distribution Utilities, Power Generation, Industrial) & Region - Forecast to 2028" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global AC circuit breaker market, valued at USD 4.1 billion in 2023, is projected to reach USD 5.3 billion by 2028, with a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.3% during the forecast period.

One of the key drivers of this growth is the increased investment in industrial production, which is fueling the demand for AC circuit breakers. The industrial sector, in particular, is expected to be the largest-growing market segment from 2023 to 2028.

As the demand for electric power continues to rise, investments in transmission and distribution infrastructures have increased. Companies are now focusing on integrating smart utility solutions to enhance protection and reduce energy losses, leading to a greater demand for AC circuit breakers in the industrial sector.

Among the insulation types, the air-insulated segment holds the third-largest market size. Air AC circuit breakers are commonly used in low- and medium-voltage applications, where they provide overcurrent and short circuit protection. To extinguish electric arcs formed during circuit disconnections, air is used as the arc quenching medium. The air-insulated segment is expected to witness steady growth during the forecast period.

Furthermore, the very-high voltage segment is also projected to hold a significant market share. These AC circuit breakers are crucial for high-voltage circuits, which require reliable switching operations. With the growing electrification and integration of renewables in the national grid, there is an increasing need to upgrade transmission and distribution infrastructure. The demand for very high-voltage AC circuit breakers is expected to surge in the coming years.

North America emerges as the second fastest and third largest-growing region in the global AC circuit breaker market. The region has witnessed consistent growth due to the rising need for dependable electrical distribution systems across residential, commercial, and industrial sectors.

As the construction industry continues to expand, the demand for circuit breakers in residential applications is anticipated to rise. The commercial and industrial sectors also contribute significantly to the market, as robust electrical systems are essential for various operations.

As the market continues to evolve, key players in the AC circuit breaker market are focusing on research and development activities to enhance product performance and meet the evolving customer demands.
