Gas Circuit Breakers Lead the Market

Gas circuit breakers are projected to dominate the circuit breaker market in terms of insulation type during the forecast period. This dominance is attributed to their advantageous features like high dielectric properties and space-saving benefits. The Asia Pacific region is expected to have the largest market share for gas circuit breakers, followed closely by Europe. Investments in renewable energy sources in these regions are fueling the demand for upgrades to existing substations or new installations, particularly in SF6-based gas-insulated switchgear, driving the market for gas circuit breakers.

T&D Utilities as a Growing Segment

In the circuit breaker market, the industrial segment is set to exhibit the highest growth rate from 2023 to 2028. The increasing demand for electrical power is leading to higher investments in transmission and distribution infrastructure. Modern substations now serve as data hubs, necessitating the integration of smart utility solutions to improve protection and reduce energy losses.

Incorporating sensors into circuit breakers offers multiple advantages, including power quality measurements, reduced interruptions, secondary equipment protection, simplified maintenance, remote monitoring, and minimized use of valuable materials. Among the end-user segments, the transmission and distribution (T&D) sector is experiencing the fastest growth due to infrastructure upgrades and growing electricity demand in power utilities.

Asia Pacific's Rapid Growth

The circuit breaker market is witnessing rapid expansion in the Asia Pacific region, followed by Europe and North America. This growth is driven by the increasing development of transmission and distribution networks and industrialization initiatives, particularly in countries like China, Japan, and South Korea.

Notably, the State Grid Corporation of China (SGCC) plans significant investments in electric power infrastructure upgrades, including substantial funds for smart grids. Similarly, South Korea's Korea Electric Power Corp. (KEPCO) is investing heavily in a nationwide smart grid infrastructure. These investments are anticipated to boost the demand for circuit breakers in the Asia Pacific region.
