Molded Case Circuit Breakers Market by Type (Molded Case and Miniature), Rated Current (0-20A, 21-75A, 76-250A, 251-800A, Above 800A), End-Use (T&D, Manufacturing & Process, Infrastructure, Power Generation, Transportation) - Global Forecasts to 2021

“The molded case circuit breakers market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 6.82% from 2016 to 2021”
The molded case circuit breakers market is projected to reach USD 9.62 billion by 2021, at a CAGR of 6.82% from 2016 to 2021. MCB and MCCB are used in the transmission & distribution, infrastructure (residential and commercial), manufacturing and process industry, transportation (railways), and others. Increasing infrastructural activities including commercial buildings such as airports, hospitals, and railway stations, increasing rural electrification and growing urban energy conservation programs, and increasing industrialization and demand from utilities are expected to drive the molded case circuit breakers market. The MCB and MCCB are expensive than traditional fuses, which could hinder market growth in the underdeveloped economies where still the fuses are preferred over MCB and MCCB.

“The MCCB segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR from 2016 to 2021”
With regard to the design type segment, MCCB are expected to constitute the fastest growing market from 2016 to 2021. There are variety of MCCB that are used for different applications such as main electric feeder protection where power is supplied to large distribution boards, capacitor bank protection for commercial and industrial electrical systems, generator protection for large generators such as gen-sets, welding application where current exceeds the capacities of MCB, and motor protection where MCCB can be adjusted to provide overload protection without tripping during the inrush current of an electric motor.

“Asia-Pacific: The largest market for MCB and MCCB”
Asia-Pacific is currently the largest market for MCB and MCCB, closely followed by North America. The Asian market is primarily driven by countries such as China, India, and Japan, where there are high demands for MCB and MCCB. The market in this region is projected to grow at a high rate, with China expected to dominate the market. Despite the headwinds in the Chinese economy, increasing domestic demand for various manufacturing facilities and construction activities in the healthcare sector is expected to raise the growth rates slightly in 2017; this will likely boost the demand for MCB and MCCB.
