Molded Case Circuit Breakers Market Synopsis

Molded Case Circuit Breakers Market is estimated to witness a USD 10.89 Billion and  CAGR of 7.24% during the forecast period 2023-2032. High growth in the construction sector is expected to drive global Molded Case Circuit Breakers Market.

Molded case circuit breakers play a crucial role in electricity transmission and distribution and protect expensive equipment in industries and commercial sectors. The central role of molded case circuit breakers is to automatically shut off power when a circuit is threatened with becoming overloaded. Factors such as an increase in power consumption, a rise in industrial activities, and a rising focus on distributed power generation are expected to drive the market in the forecast period. A rise in the stability of electricity supply, thereby reducing the need for circuit breakers, is likely to restrain the growth of the molded case circuit breaker market in the coming years.

The majority of the energy consumption in the industrial sector comes from energy-intensive manufacturing industries that play an essential role in the manufacturing of basic chemicals, iron, steel, food, non-ferrous metals, non-metallic minerals, refining, and paper. Energy-intensive industries are expected to occupy half of the industrial sector energy consumption share during the forecast period. Globally, the focus has increased on investments in clean energy projects and renewable energy development. As a result, the extensive development of new renewable projects, rising electricity usage, and increasing focus on distributed power generation are likely to create an excellent opportunity for the molded case circuit breaker market.

Recent Developments in Molded Case Circuit Breakers Market

June 2023

Intelligent power management company, Eaton has constructed a new electrical plant at its manufacturing base in Puducherry as it prepares for vigorous business expansion in India. Modern manufacturing lines are set up in the new facility to produce MCCBs (Moulded Case Circuit Breakers) and ACBs (Air Circuit Breakers) to meet the demands of the power industry.

With the completion of a new block spanning around 40,000 square feet, that houses its largest shop floor at the Sedarapet manufacturing site, Eaton plans to quadruple the capacity of its medium voltage assembly lines while adding state-of-the-art infrastructure. The development of a new factory is consistent with the way the company has organically expanded over a decade or so by expanding its production base to satisfy increasing demands.

The ₹100-crore plant upgrade is aimed to help sustain the 30% annual growth record, cater to the addition of new products (ACBs and MCCBs) to its product line and align with the long-term plan based on macro market trend forecasts and developing technology needs.

Catering to the electrical sector both in power distribution and power quality, the company has aligned itself to the megatrends of energy transition and digitalization to serve various segments of customers — industrial, residential, infrastructure, utilities, data centers and OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers).

As per the International Energy Agency (IEA), the world’s most populated country - China, APAC, is likely to install 36% of worldwide hydroelectricity generation capacity and 40% of all global wind energy between 2015-and 2021. China currently has over 259,000 MW of new coal plants in various stages of development and accounts for more than 1/3 of the global coal plant pipeline. Both China and India are holding a significant share of the world’s industrial sector, mainly the energy-intensive manufacturing sector. While China’s industrial energy consumption is the highest globally at a 29% share of the global industrial energy consumption in 2018, India is rapidly catching up with a steady increase in its industrial sector.

Molded Case Circuit Breakers Market Segmentation

 Molded Case Circuit Breakers

For the purpose of this study, the global molded case circuit breakers market has been divided into two segments, namely rated current and end-user. On the basis of rated current, the market has been segmented into up to 20A, 21A–75A, 76A–250A, 251A–800A, and above 800A. In 2018, 76A–250A dominated the rated current segment of the MCCB market. These MCCBs are being mostly used in infrastructure sector, especially residential and commercial. The growing infrastructure sector in emerging economies is expected to drive the market for 76A–250A sub-segment.

On the basis of end-user, the global molded case circuit breakers market has been divided into transmission & distribution, manufacturing & process industry, residential & commercial, power generation, and others. Transmission & distribution dominates the end-user segment of the MCCB market and is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. Increasing modernization of aging infrastructure is a major factor driving the growth of the market.

Circuit breakers are the most critical components of a whole electrical circuit system. These are important for the prevention of electronic devices and loads from short circuits or overloads. Molded Case Circuit Breaker (MCCB) is a miniature circuit breaker primarily used to protect an electrical circuit from short circuits and securely connect and disconnect loads from the electrical source. MCCB commonly works based on two elements i.e. thermal element for overcurrent and magnetic element for short circuit release.
