Market Segmentation:



Vacuum contactor is an electrically controlled switch that is used to make or break an electrical circuit with the help of vacuum interrupter, relay and fuse. This switch is typically used in motor starters, switchgear and control gear of medium voltage fast switching devices motor starters, switchgear and control gear of medium voltage fast switching devices. Vacuum contactors are also widely used in HVAC systems since refrigeration, cooling, and ventilation equipment need an AC motor system. Therefore, robust growth in HVAC systems globally would drive the market.


Continuous increase in investment and upgradation in process industries, manufacturing industry, commercial, and large residential complexes that use HVAC systems would drive the market. Counties in Asia present hot climatic conditions along with rise in urbanization which has driven the demand for HVAC products. Additionally, the increasing demand for fast-switching devices is considered to have an equally upshifting effect on the demand for vacuum contactors.


Need for reduction of use of power in machineries would drive the demand for vacuum contactors as it helps to regulate power use to prevent a sudden increase in load in the motor. Therefore, power utilities and other industries are installing vacuum contactors help to reduce the power consumption in their systems and help to protect the equipment that is connected to an electrical network, leading to safety of overall system.


Global vacuum contactor market is expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period owing to investment in HVAC system, government regulations on energy efficiency, and the use of environmentally friendly refrigerants. Moreover, rising requirement for efficiency of electric equipment in industries would be the key vacuum contactor trend in the market. Asia Pacific is the largest market for vacuum contactor. Rising urbanization and significant development in process industries such as paper & pulp, cement, and metal processing would boost the growth of vacuum contactor. North America is expected to be the second largest market for vacuum contactors during the forecast period. Replacement of aging T&D infrastructure in the US and increasing demand for reliable power is driving the demand for vacuum contactors.
