DC Circuit Breaker (Solid-State and Hybrid) Market - Global Forecast to 2024

/EIN News/ -- Dublin, May 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "DC Circuit Breaker Market by Voltage (Medium Voltage and High Voltage), Type (Solid-State and Hybrid), Insulation (Vacuum and Gas), End-User (T&D utilities, Power generation, Renewables, and Railways) and Region - Global Forecast to 2024" report has been added to's offering.

The DC circuit breaker market was estimated to be USD 2,339.9 million in 2019 and is projected to reach USD 3,211.5 million by 2024, at a CAGR of 6.54%.

Circuit breakers are devices that interrupt electric current to prevent unwarranted current caused by a short circuit resulted by an overload. The basic functionality of these devices is to interrupt the current flow after the detection of a fault. Circuit breakers control the sudden rise of current and voltage. These devices are installed according to the rating of the power system. Different circuit breakers are used for residential and industrial purposes.

The circuit breakers are used to control high, medium, and low voltage transmission systems. Circuit breakers were developed and installed using water, oil, air, compressed air, vacuum, and SF6. Now circuit breakers are more compact and need negligible maintenance as compared to previous technologies. Increasing investments in urban and rural electric power networks, railways, HVDC, standby power, renewable energy, and energy storage, and electric vehicles are expected to act as opportunities for the DC circuit breaker market.

The higher adoption of the HVDC technology and replacement of aging power infrastructure & rising electrification projects among others are likely to create an opportunity for the companies to accelerate the DC circuit breaker market. The high cost of installation of DC circuit breakers is expected to act as a restraint for the growth of the DC circuit breaker market.

The major players in the DC circuit breaker market are ABB (Switzerland), Siemens (Germany), Eaton (Ireland), Toshiba (Japan), and Larsen & Toubro (India) among others.
