Circuit Breaker, Thermistor & Fuse Market Gaining Traction from Power Generation Industry

Global Circuit Breaker, Thermistor & Fuse Market:

The circuit breaker is an electrical switch which is highly adapted to avoid short circuits. It is used in switchgear to protect high voltage circuits which handle entire city electricity supply. Fuse is an automatic resource which removes power from a fault system. The thermistor is a temperature dependent resistor, which is broadly used in positive temperature coefficient and negative temperature coefficient (NTC) applications, especially as a resistance thermometer in NTC applications. Modern digital thermostats use the thermistor to monitor the temperature of battery packs during charging. Thermal fuses are most commonly used in small consumer electronic devices such as hair dryers and coffee makers. The new electronic policy named The National Policy on Electronics is targeting to make India as one of the major global hubs which deal with the manufacturing of mobile phones, refrigerators, televisions and air-conditioners. According to IndustryARC estimations, the global circuit breaker, thermistor, & fuse market was valued around $13 billion – $15 billion for the year 2018. It is set to grow at a CAGR of 5%-7% through to 2025.

As per the IndustryARC analysis, it was found that power generation is the key application of circuit breaker, thermistor & fuse market and it is estimated to grow at a CAGR of 5%-8% over the forecast period. This steep growth is due to the groundbreaking technologies in automotive fuse coupled with improved efficiency and functionality of circuit breakers and thermistors in the power generation industry. Europe region held a major share which accounts for around 33%-35% in 2018.
