Air Circuit Breaker Market Growth $5.95 Billion By 2032 CAGR 5.8%

Air Circuit Breaker Market Size Worth $5.95 Billion By 2032 | CAGR: 5.8%

The global air circuit breaker market size is expected to reach USD 5.95 billion by 2032, according to a new study by Polaris Market Research. The report “Air Circuit Breaker Market Share, Size, Trends, Industry Analysis Report, By Type (Plain Air Circuit Breaker, Air Blast Circuit Breaker); By Voltage; By Application; By Region; Segment Forecast, 2024 - 2032” gives a detailed insight into current market dynamics and provides analysis on future market growth.

Circuit breakers are gaining adoption in various disciplines, primarily in industrial electrical appliances and households, due to their potential to cease the flow of power at the time of overcurrent, short circuit, or to direct the flow of the system. They play a pivotal role in promoting the safety and functionality of electrical systems in the domain of electrical power distribution and protection. Their capabilities in handling larger amounts of power are grabbing attention among industrialists as a prominent device to promote workplace safety and equipment.

The rising concerns about greenhouse emissions are enforcing a significant shift towards renewable energy, primarily solar and wind, facilitating the need for power storage and distribution, which may show the requirement for circuit breakers. Based on the 13th National Electricity Plan, solar energy is likely to reach 666 TWh in FY 2032 from 73 TWh in FY 2022.

The diverse requirements of air circuit breakers in wider applications are exploring their new potential in the market. As an example, in October 2023, RTX announced its development of a solid-state circuit breaker for hybrid-electric aircraft under a NASA contract. This trend is likely to promote the growth of the market in the coming years.

Growing technological advancements are creating new growth opportunities for the air circuit breaker and contributing to product innovations. In September 2023, ABB unveiled the AIS MV Switchgear Technology at the Abu Dhabi International Petroleum Exhibition and Conference.
