To cater to the increasing power demand globally new product development is a key strategy adopted by maximum industry players in order to achieve growth in the circuit breakers and fuse market. Circuit breakers and fuse market is estimated to reach $15,632.3 million by 2019 at a CAGR of 6.8% from 2014 to 2019.

A circuit breaker is a mechanical device manufactured to open and close a circuit by self-operated means and to open the circuit automatically on a pre-assumed overload current without damage and needs to be applied within its rating. Whereas a fuse is an electrical component used to prevent the passage of the overload current from itself.

Electric-power transmission is the bulk transfer of electricity, from power plants to electrical substations. Electric power transmission and distribution (T&D) equipments have very high demand. The primary driver for increases in transmission spending is demand for the electricity grid. Circuit breaker and fuses are one of the major components of the power transmission equipment.

The lucrative and high-investment areas such as Asia-Pacific and North America are the key driving factors for the exponential growth of circuit breaker and fuse market.
