Power Circuit Breaker Manufacturing in the US - Industry Market Research Report

Power Circuit Breaker Manufacturing

The Power Circuit Breaker Manufacturing industry is expected to grow over the five years to 2017. Continued economic growth and recovering demand from the downstream commercial and residential construction sector have accelerated growth over the past five years. Over the five years to 2022, downstream markets will continue to grow, leading to greater demand for newly manufactured circuit breakers. Imports, however, are expected to accelerate over the next five years as the US dollar appreciates, decreasing the relative price of imported goods. As foreign competition rises, companies will increasingly eliminate peripheral labor and move operations overseas to maintain profitability. Remaining operations will be increasingly automated to mitigate higher wage costs.

This industry manufactures power circuit breakers that protect electrical circuits from anomalies in power supply, including overflooding or short circuiting. Various kinds of circuit breakers provide differing dimensions, depending on the user’s need. Industry products are widely used by customers ranging from corporate enterprises to households. This industry does not include fuses, knife switches, panelboards nor distribution switchboards.

This report covers the scope, size, disposition and growth of the industry including the key sensitivities and success factors. Also included are five year industry forecasts, growth rates and an analysis of the industry key players and their market shares.
