Molded Case Circuit Breakers Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Trends, Analysis, Growth, and Forecast 2017 - 2025
The global molded case circuit breakers market is forecasted to be extensively advantaged by rising applications in key projects such as the largest floating photovoltaic power plant test-bed in the world. This 1 MW floating photovoltaic power plant test-bed in Singapore measuring 1 ha will feature ABB technologies, including low-voltage molded case and miniature circuit breakers to guard electrical circuits on water.
An electrical circuit system recognizes circuit breakers as one of the most vital components for its proper function. Circuit breakers find a crucial and an essential application during electric current overloads and short circuits–protecting electronic loads and devices. In a molded insulating material, a molded case circuit breaker could embody the complete enclosure as an electrical protection device. A miniature circuit breaker revealingly differs from a molded case circuit breaker by the current rating supported. While a miniature circuit breaker can operate in electrical circuits possessing up to a 100 A current rating, a molded case circuit breaker can do well even in an over 1,000 A (normally 2,500 A) current rating.
Leading providers such as Eaton typically manufacture molded case circuit breakers that could be installed in a variety of end uses such as bus duct plug-in units, individual enclosures, combination starters, control panels, and motor control centers. Such products are expected to be engaged for various applications such as military, mining, industrial, commercial, and alternative energy. Until 2016, top players had taken to new product development that constituted a larger percentage of all developments as a go-to business strategy.
The molded case circuit breakers market is on the path of rapid growth, powered by ongoing industrialization and urbanization. Their growing application in a wide range of industries has significantly benefited the market and companies have been increasingly recognizing the immense potential this market holds.
