 North America circuit protection market size, by product, 2020 - 2030 (USD Billion)

The fluctuation in raw material prices is a major factor expected to hamper the market growth. Materials such as glass, solenoids, diodes, and metal wirings are used in manufacturing circuit breakers and fuses. Fluctuating in the prices of these materials impacts the overall prices of the end product. Also, the high cost of SF6 circuit breaker technology products poses a major challenge in its adoption. The SF6 circuit breaker products are added with minimal content of silver and gold to increase the efficiency of the product this increases the assembly cost making the overall product expensive.

COVID-19 negatively impacted the market growth. The government had imposed strict regulations to control the pandemic outbreak. Production facilities operations were at a halt due to the complete lockdown imposed by the governments globally. This temporary halt at production facilities lowers the demand for products from automotive and electronics manufacturers. However, the market is witnessing growth in 2022 as the production facilities are at full operation and demand for electric vehicles and consumer appliances is increasing which will ultimately increase demand for circuit breaker products.

Moreover, circuit protection devices are widely used in the telecommunication industry. With the advent of 5G technology players are focused on upgrading the telecom infrastructure by deploying various types of equipment that are capable to handle the heavy load of communication. This equipment is costly and gets damaged due to voltage fluctuation or overheating resulting in players opting for advanced current protection solutions to lower the product damage and save additional cost. This high demand for overvoltage protection and inrush current limiters from the telecom sector is expected to boost the target market growth. Also, circuit protection manufacturers are focused on the introduction of new products focused on a particular application is expected to boost the circuit protection market growth.
