ELECTRONICS.CA PUBLICATIONS announces the availability of a new comprehensive analysis of industry segments, trends, growth drivers, market share, market size and demand forecasts on the global Fuses and Circuit Breakers market. Global market for Fuses and Circuit Breakers is projected to reach US$19.7 billion by 2020, driven by sustained demand in commercial power distribution systems.
Sustained Demand from the Energy End-Use Sector Drives the Global Market for Fuses and Circuit Breakers
The growing prominence of power systems management and engineering, against a backdrop of increased use of electronic devices, is driving demand for fuses and circuit breakers. As sophisticated power protection devices, fuses and circuit breakers play instrumental roles in managing electrical loads. These devices assume critical importance in protecting electrical and electronic equipment from unexpected power fluctuations resulting from overvoltages, overload, ground faults and short circuits. Increasing focus on efficient power transmission and distribution is the principal factor driving demand for fuses and circuit breakers in electric utility applications. Emerging economies, which are currently at the forefront of establishing new energy infrastructure, are especially poised to spur growth. Manufacturers seeking emerging market exposure are increasingly looking beyond the BRICs. As BRIC countries slowdown highlighting the popping of the BRIC bubble, non-BRIC emerging markets are poised to turbo-charge opportunities in the energy end-use sector. These emerging countries, for instance, require huge amounts of energy to power economic growth and the rapid industrialization underway.
The market, over the past decade, has largely benefited from the robust sales of electronic and electric equipment all of which warrant the use of protection devices such as fuses and circuit breakers. Increased replacement of mechanical and electro-mechanical devices with electronic equipment in the manufacturing and industrial sectors is also expected to drive gains in the market. Urbanization and the ensuing rapid expansion in commercial building and residential units will also spur demand for fuses and circuit breakers. Environmental regulations mandating the need for more efficient power distribution and transmission equipment will further drive demand for fuses and circuit breakers in electric utility applications. Proliferation of IT technologies will drive increased need for power management in computer systems and server farms thus bringing in new opportunities for growth.
Electronics form a core part of modern automobiles with every sub-system electronically controlled, right from electronic power steering, four-wheel steering systems, anti-lock braking systems, climate control systems, occupant restraint airbag systems, power seat modules, door control, light controls, car security systems like engine immobilization, and keyless remote entry.
With electronics becoming an indispensable part of automobile design and engineering, wiring of electrical components is now more common thus providing widespread opportunities for the use of fuses and circuit breakers to protect the electrical components of the automobile.
As stated by the new market research report on Fuses and Circuit Breakers, the United States represents the largest market worldwide. Asia-Pacific ranks as the fastest growing regional market driven by sustained demand from key end-use industries in emerging Asian economies.
