Global Circuit Breaker Market Share, Growth, Analysis By Voltage: Medium Voltage, High Voltage; By Insulation Type: Vacuum Circuit Breakers, Air Circuit Breakers, Gas Circuit Breakers, Oil Circuit Breakers; By Installation: Outdoor, Indoor; By End-Use: Residential, Commercial, Industrial, Utility; Regional Analysis; Competitive Landscape; 2023-2028

Global Circuit Breaker Market Outlook

The global circuit breaker market size reached a value of over USD 8.64 billion in 2022. The market is further estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5.70% in the forecast period of 2023-2028.

 

Rising Demand for Vacuum Circuit Breakers to Aid the Market Growth

Based on insulation type, the demand for vacuum circuit breakers is witnessing a steady growth. Vacuum circuit breakers are increasingly used in medium voltage applications, owing to their multiple advantages like high dielectric power, reduced fire risk, no noise generation during the operation, and low power to control operations. Also, vacuum circuit breakers possess better reliability due to hard contact materials, compact size, and long life as compared to air circuit breakers. This is because they are enclosed in a vacuum bottle, which controls contact erosion, thereby reducing corrosion and offering easy maintenance. 


The efforts taken by market players in developing advanced vacuum circuit breakers are likely to aid the market over the forecast period. Various leading companies are introducing innovative vacuum circuit breakers equipped with thermal monitoring sensors, digital connectivity, and IoT sensors, among others, to provide improved machine reliability, enhanced safety, a better consumer experience, additional safety, and high machine reliability. 

 

Market Segmentation

A circuit breaker is an electrical safety device that prevents damage to a power system during short circuit or overcurrent. It can be operated both automatically and manually.

Rising Demand from End-Use Sectors to Drive the Market Growth of Circuit Breaker

The rapid urbanisation is bolstering the demand for electricity in various end-use sectors and thus, the requirement for circuit breakers to protect the electrical system from damage. The increasing awareness about the importance of circuit breakers in a power system for better electrical functionality, coupled with their rising availability in wide varieties and different technologies, is contributing to the circuit breaker market expansion. 

 

The development of eco-friendly circuit breakers that eliminate the use of sulphur hexafluoride (SF6) is aiding the market development. This is also increasing the adoption of CO2 in circuit breakers to enable a complete reduction in global warming potential (GWP) as compared to SF6.  Furthermore, the expanding production of electric vehicles is propelling the use of circuit breakers to enhance safety and reduce the costs of electric vehicles. 

 

The development of smart cities and favourable government initiatives towards electrification of homes are providing impetus to the circuit breaker market development. The introduction of digital circuit breakers combined with smart software and connectivity that enable customers to remotely monitor and control energy use in buildings is expected to augment the market over the forecast period.
