Contactors Market Trends

Growing Usage of Contactors in Electric Vehicles (EVs) and Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs)  to boost market growth

The demand for EVs and HEVs is increasing owing to the rising fuel prices and incentives rolled out by government bodies. The government across various countries is encouraging the usage of e-mobility to cut down the dependency on crude oil and reduce vehicle pollutions. Numerous automotive manufacturers have started producing electric vehicles or hybrid electric vehicles, subsequently supporting the growth of the market. These contactors are used in EVs or HEVs to isolate the high voltage battery from the high voltage network.

The growing awareness towards maintaining a clean environment has propelled the growth of renewable energy projects. Solar energy is considered the fastest-growing application in renewable energy. In addition, the continuously increasing demand for growing green energy shares is also supporting the growth of solar energy. The main application for contactors in PV plants is disconnecting the inverter from the PV strings when the required output is low. In addition, these contactors are used to change the PV strings configuration to increase the plant efficiency by diverting other strings to an optimal converter. Therefore, such condition has enhanced the Contactors market CAGR across the globe in the recent years. The growing industrialization and urbanization in the Asia Pacific region, especially in China and India, have boosted the electricity demand. The growing population in the region has increased per capita electricity consumption, thus providing an opportunity for the contactor market as these contactors can play important role in controlling the flow of electricity. Rising population and growing urbanization rates are likely to increase energy demand across the globe. According to the United Nations report, in 2018, 55% of the world’s population lives in urban areas, projected to increase to 68% by 2050. In addition, rapid urbanization is also supporting the growth of these connectors/.

However, increasing use of Contactors in the power distribution network for switching an electrical power circuit for smooth functioning of electrical equipment is another factor driving the growth of the Contactors market revenue.
