Global Busbar Market 2016-2020

About Busbar

A busbar is a metallic strip or bar capable of conducting electricity. It is an essential component of the electrical power grid that enables the grid to conduct electricity while reducing power loss simultaneously. The materials used for busbar construction and its dimensional specifications determine the maximum current it can safely conduct. Low power rating busbars are used in electrical systems of small-scale buildings or residential construction and warehouses. Medium power rated busbars are employed in electrical substations, while high power rated busbars are used in the smelting industry.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global busbar market to grow at a CAGR of 5.44% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Busbar Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Busbar Market: ABB, Eaton, Legrand, Schneider Electric, and Siemens.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Chint Electrics, Mersen, Power Products, Rittal, and TE Connectivity.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The use of solar energy to generate electricity and to heat water is a well-established technology. Busbars play an important role in conducting electricity between the cells of a solar panel. It separates the solar cells, and conducts the current collected by cells to solar inverters that convert DC power to AC power. The size of the busbar determines the maximum current that can be safely conducted. Therefore, a growing market for solar energy will expand market demand for busbars.”

According to the report, solid aluminum busbars connect batteries to electrical components inside a vehicle. Thus, busbars form an essential component in vehicular operations. We observe that growth in the global busbar market is closely tied to the fortunes of the transportation sector worldwide.

Further, the report states that steel has a wide range of applications in heavy industries such as construction, mining, automobile, and marine. As busbars are used in the steel smelting industry, decline in steel production affects market demand for busbars.
