The global molded case circuit breakers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.82% from 2016 to 2021, to reach a market size of USD 9.62 Billion by 2021. This growth is attributed to the increasing infrastructural activities including commercial buildings such as airports, hospitals, and railway stations, increasing rural electrification and growing urban energy conservation programs, and increasing industrialization and demand from utilities.

The report segments the molded case circuit breakers market on the basis of type into MCB and MCCB. The MCCB segment is projected to dominate the MCB and MCCB market.

The molded case circuit breakers market has been segmented based on rated current ranging from 0A–20A, 21A–75A, 76A–250A, 251A–800A, and above 800A. The segment ranging from 75A–250A accounted for the largest market share in 2015. These MCB and MCCB are being increasingly adopted due to their wide application in various industries for motor protection, lighting duties, etc.

The report segments the molded case circuit breakers market based on end-user segment into transmission & distribution, infrastructure (residential and commercial), manufacturing and process industry, transportation (railways), and others. The T&D industry segment is expected to grow at the fastest rate during the forecast period. MCBs are applied mainly in residential buildings and to some extent in the panel distribution system. As far as MCCBs are concerned, they are applicable in the LT distribution panels in the commercial buildings. The growing T&D sector, especially in Asia-Pacific region will likely drive the overall molded case circuit breakers market during the forecast period.

In this report, the molded case circuit breakers market has been analyzed with respect to five regions, namely, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Latin America, the Middle East & Africa. Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the global molded case circuit breakers market during the forecast period, owing to the extensive use of these devices in manufacturing industries as well as infrastructural activities.

The Asia-Pacific market is projected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021. The region is the largest market for the construction sector. The growth of the manufacturing sector, especially in Southeast Asian countries, coupled with an increase in power generation capacity in India, is expected to drive the molded case circuit breakers market in the region.

Molded Case Circuit Breakers Market

Increasing fragmentation in the manufacturing of MCB and MCCB could be a restraint of the molded case circuit breakers market, leading to declining profits. Additionally, MCB and MCCB form an important part of the mining sector; its slowdown has hindered the growth of the molded case circuit breakers market.

Leading players in the molded case circuit breakers market include Siemens AG (Germany), Schneider Electric (France), General Electric (U.S.), Eaton Corporation Plc. (Ireland), Rockwell Automation, Inc. (U.S.). New product development was the strategy most commonly adopted by the top players, constituting 44% of the total developments from 2012 to 2016. It was followed by contracts & agreements, expansions, and mergers & acquisitions.
