Generator circuit-breakers are connected between a generator and the step-up voltage transformer. They are generally used at the outlet of high power generators (100MVA to 1800MVA) in order to protect them in a reliable, fast, and cost-effective manner. These circuit breakers allow the passage of high permanent currents under continuous service (6.3kA to 40kA), and have a high breaking capacity (63kA to 275kA). They belong to the medium voltage range. The drivers of the generator circuit breakers market are entirely influenced by the power transmission and generation industry. Growth in the related as well as complementary markets, such as switchgear and transformer, also contribute towards the growth of generator circuit breakers.

Each region has been analyzed with respect to its market trends, growth, and future prospects in the market. This report basically aims to estimate the global market from 2014 to 2019.

The generator circuit breakers market size is estimated to reach $302.30 Million by 2019 from $267.58 Million in 2014. The major factors responsible for driving the growth of this market include increasing power transmission & generation industry and growing industrialization & urbanization.

Asia-Pacific was the largest market, followed by North America in 2013. Increasing demand for power transmission and generation equipment & growing industrialization & urbanization are driving the market. Rising demand for power is considered as the major growth opportunity of this market. However, upcoming power generation projects through renewable sources such as solar and photovoltaic cells can limit the growth of this market world-wide.

Environmental regulations on the SF6 circuit breaker technology is a major challenge of the market.
