Low-Voltage Circuit Breakers Market Trends




  • Growing adoption of solar energy sources propels market growth




The increased usage of alternative energy sources, particularly solar power, has had a substantial impact on the market CAGR for low-voltage circuit breakers. The market for low-voltage DC circuit breakers is expected to grow as solar power generation, one of the greenest types of energy generating, becomes more popular. Several governments have developed advantageous policies to assist the development of solar power infrastructure. Low voltage circuit breakers protect a solar system at every stage, from combiner boxes through AC and DC inverters and main panels. The solar panels will only generate electricity when it is sunny. Advances in solar panel technology have enabled power generation even in low-intensity sunlight. Solar panel manufacturers concurrently decreased solar panel prices.


Circuit breakers have become an essential component of electrical networks in homes and businesses, industries, and utility-scale grids. Because of the increased urbanisation and modernisation, electrical switching devices are installed in every home, workplace, and other building. As a result, ongoing efforts are made to promote a safer atmosphere. The Electrical Safety Standards in the Private Rented Sector (England) Regulations 2020 went into force on June 1, 2020. The revised electrical laws entered into effect on July 1, 2020, for new tenancies, and on April 1, 2021, for existing tenants. Landlords must have their electrical installations inspected and tested by a "qualified and competent" person at least every five years, according to this rule. Infractions of the new electrical laws may result in fines of up to $34,000 USD. During the projection period, these regulatory norms will have a favourable impact on the Circuit Breaker industry outlook.


Furthermore, several developing countries have electrification programmes in place to connect rural areas to the power grid. Other countries are also attempting to integrate multiple grid zones to establish a mega-national grid. These electrical switching devices are widely used in transmission and distribution lines to protect the power system against electrical problems. For instance, in June 2021, the World Bank financed more than US$ 2.3 billion in infrastructure and reforms to support the West Africa Power Pool, which is viewed as vital to achieving universal access to power in the 15 countries of the Economic Community of West African States by 2030. Thus, driving the Low-Voltage Circuit Breakers Market revenue.


Low-Voltage Circuit Breakers Market Segment Insights:




  • Low-Voltage Circuit Breakers Type Insights




The Low-Voltage Circuit Breakers Market segmentation, based on type includes Miniature Circuit Breaker (MCB), Molded-case Circuit Breaker (MCCB), Air Circuit Breaker (ACB). The Molded-case Circuit Breaker (MCCB) category held the greatest market share in the low voltage de circuit breaker market in 2022. Because of its simple design and longevity, the Moulded Case Circuit Breaker (MCCCB) is more dependable and affordable than its competitors. One of the key reasons for this is that MCCBs are more commonly employed than Air Circuit Breakers (ACBs) and other low voltage DC circuit breakers. With the expansion of power generating and transmission networks, moulded case circuit breakers are becoming more popular. Furthermore, moulded case circuit breakers are in high demand in the commercial and industrial sectors. These circuit breakers are used to supply power to industrial machinery such as elevators, conveyors, and cranes.


In September 2020, Siemens debuted a new three-wire air circuit breaker series. The company's new 3WA circuit breakers suit all low-voltage power distribution standards in digital applications. These advancements improve the air circuit breaker segment, consequently increasing the size of the Circuit Breaker market.
