The global circuit breaker market reached a value of US$ 7.91 Billion in 2020. A circuit breaker refers to an automatic safety device designed to prevent fluctuations in the flow of the current and protect other devices that are attached to the circuit. It also assists in controlling, regulating and mastering electric power efficiently. It is currently available in numerous sizes ranging from small devices that protect low-current circuits to large switchgear, which protects high-voltage circuits. As circuit breakers are useful in low-, medium-, and high-voltage applications, they are extensively utilized in the construction, locomotive, and transportation industries.

There is a significant rise in the need for upgrading electrical transmission networks, especially in emerging economies, on account of rapid urbanization and increasing population. Consequently, governments in these countries are focusing on expanding their power generation capacity to meet electricity requirements in rural and urban areas. This, in turn, has escalated the demand for circuit breakers. Apart from this, governing agencies in developed countries are replacing the old electrical equipment with energy-efficient systems to ensure electrical safety and minimize wastage. For instance, countries are revamping their power grid construction and transmission lines, which is strengthening the market growth. However, the market is experiencing a decline in the overall sales of circuit breakers due to the surging cases of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and consequent lockdown imposed in different countries to prevent the spread of the pandemic. The market will experience growth once normalcy is regained. Looking forward, the analyst expects the global circuit breaker market to exhibit moderate growth during 2021-2026.
