Europe Vacuum Circuit Breakers Market

Europe Vacuum Circuit Breakers Market

The Europe Vacuum Circuit Breakers Market has been estimated at USD XX billion in 2016 and is projected to reach USD XX billion by 2022, at a CAGR of XX% during the forecast period from 2017 to 2022. The Vacuum Circuit breakers are electrical switching devices used on distribution and transmission networks for the safety of the equipment and devices. The advantage of using such circuit breaker is that it can be operated frequently or at a place of multi breaking short circuit. A Vacuum circuit breaker adopts the design of integrating the operating mechanism with a breaker, available for serving as a permanently installed unit, or as a hand trolley unit after equipped with underframe.

This market is driven by some factors, such as the growing need for efficient and effective load management, the need for Renewable energy to be connected to the grid. However, this market faces certain drawbacks, such as the high costs compared to the traditional fuses and the high level of complexity involved in the design for component level protection. These factors may act as a roadblock to the growth of the market.

This market can be broadly segmented into Indoor Vacuum Circuit Breakers and Outdoor Vacuum Circuit Breakers. This technology has applications in Building & Construction Industry, Cement Manufacturing Industry, Food & Beverages Manufacturing Industry, Metals Manufacturing Industry, Mining Industry, Pulp & Paper Manufacturing Industry, Pharmaceutical Manufacturing Industry, Textiles Manufacturing Industry, Water and Wastewater Industry, Petrochemical Manufacturing Industry and Bulk & Speciality Chemical Industry.

The market has also been geographically segmented into countries in the Europe and the Market Size and Forecast for each of the countries in the region has been covered. The ageing grids in all the geographical segments open up an area of immense potential and opportunities.

The market has more relevance today since power that is distributed through grid has to be safe for the increasing number of small components used and the fluctuating load has to be managed effectively. The aging Bulk oil Circuit Breakers are costly to maintain and hence should be replaced with more advanced and efficient technology to ensure a smooth flow of power from grid to houses. The major companies dominating this market for its products, services, and continuous product developments are Kirloskar electric company, Crompton greaves, Delixi Group, Siemens, Sarel, Hawker Siddeley Switchgear Ltd., Thomas & Betts, LSIS Co. Ltd., Hapn, Driescher, Schaltbau GmBH.
