Fault Current Limiter Market Trends



  • Rising need for improved and sophisticated power grid infrastructure is driving the market growth


Market CAGR for fault current limiter is being driven by the rising need for sophisticated and improved power grid infrastructure and a general inclination for renewable energy applications. Various glass, visitor, diodes, solenoids, copper, and metal wirings are also included in fault current limiters, in addition to other components. 


The price of raw materials for these components is increasing due to an inability to control manufacturing expenses. These factors have increased in the cost of the device's overall assembly, which may limit the market expansion for fault current limiters.


Additionally, modern fault current limiters show increased dependability for industrial lines of the future.  As a result, the global market for fault current limiters is anticipated to grow significantly during the next years. Globally strict laws and government programes encourage market expansion and the use of these systems in the main end-use sectors.


A more reliable and efficient power source is increasingly in demand from consumers. As the T&D system is being upgraded by the government due to the overuse of fuses and the absence of circuit breakers in the system.  The dependability and efficiency of power supplies increase, the market for fault current limiters is anticipated to expand. 


Fault current limiters are predicted to become more necessary as grid interconnections rise due to the current shortage of fuses and circuit breakers. A rising interest in renewable energy applications is anticipated to drive the market for fault current limiters.


For instance, in September 2017, to strengthen its grid business, American Superconductor Corporation paid US$ 3.75 Mn to buy Infinia Technology Corporation (ITC), a cryo-cooling company with headquarters in Washington, U.S. Additionally, Siemens employed superconductors to construct an electrical grid in Augsburg. 


Several players are growing their businesses through strategic mergers and acquisitions, and alliances with various end-use sectors due to the growing market and underlying latent demand. Thus, driving the Fault Current Limiter market revenue.
