Published On : September 23, 2021 | Report ID: FBI105982 | Status : Ongoing



The function of the fuse rail is to protect against overcurrent with high visibility and low visibility. Fuse rail protects circuit breakers from high fault currents at low visibility.

A continuous upgrade of the existing substation and feeder wire protection will revitalize the fuse rail market. The planned generation capacity can strain the existing power grid unless expanded and upgraded within ten years. Adding these capacities requires a newly upgraded and expanded infrastructure. Most of the existing power infrastructure in several developed countries is old and needs to be upgraded. Electric fuses are mainly installed in feeder and distribution line protection high voltage substations to prevent long-term power outages due to temporary short circuits and to provide customers with continuous supply continuity. These factors are expected to drive market growth.

  • According to Dubai Electricity & Water Authority, investments of over AED 7 billion will be used to develop a smart grid network across the city. This is anticipated to increase fuse rail adoption.

  • UK Power Networks, an energy company based in London, announced the Power Potential Project in 2019. This project is the world's first grid-scale smart network, enhancing coordination between the national grid, national system operator, and DNOs.

  • In December 2021, India's Power Ministry approved 23 inter-state transmission system projects with around INR 15,893 crore investment.

End-users have moved significantly from electric fuses to MCBs and MCCBs in the low voltage sector. These circuit protectors are more reliable and reusable, safer, more sensitive, and have a better interface without the need for manual intervention. Circuit breakers and protection relays in the high voltage sector replace electrical fuses in existing infrastructure as these devices can provide more excellent reliability and automation. This is an overall trend across the region. Most industries are moving to automation throughout the area. Therefore, strong demand for more intelligent devices such as MCBs, MCCBs, and relays has been observed. This automation trend could curb the global fuse rail market during the forecast period.

Fuse rails are of various types, such as 100mm, 185mm, and others. The 185mm fuse rails have a high demand. The high demand for medium voltage fuse rails due to the continuous construction of the transmission and distribution network and the high fuse replacement capacity is expected to drive the market. The main end-uses of medium voltage fuse rails are utility companies, transformers and substations, power distribution networks, and heavy industries such as oil and gas. The medium voltage fuse rail is mainly used for current limiting function, motor circuit protection, and backup to prevent predetermined current. These fuse rails account for a large part of the total market size.

North America, especially the U.S., plays an important role that cannot be ignored. Changes in consumer behavior related to electricals in the U.S. may affect circuit breakers, fuses, and relays development trends. The North American market is expected to grow significantly during the forecast period. High employment of advanced technologies and large enterprises in the region can create ample growth opportunities for the market.


The fuse rails market is expected to grow faster after the COVID-19 pandemic. The market was affected due to lower investment of electrical transmission infrastructure during the pandemic period. But the rise in energy requirements and growth in smart grid investments is anticipated to bolster market growth.

  • With grid and transmission infrastructure upgradation post the pandemic, there is a growth in fuse rails demand. In 2021, the voltage source converter (VSC) technology was deployed for the first time in India in the North Thrissur transmission line.

  • In January 2022, an investment of USD 11 billion was made for the Clean Path New York Project to construct a 1.3 GW, 280 km underground HVDC transmission line in upstate New York.


The report will cover the following key insights:

  • Recent Advancements in Fuse Rails

  • Key Industry Trends

  • Regulatory Landscape for Fuse Rails

  • Key Industry Developments (Mergers, Acquisitions, and Partnerships)

  • Impact of COVID-19 on the Market


According to the application, the fuse rails market is divided into distribution, industrial, and utility. The utility sector is expected to experience the highest growth in the world market. Utility companies face the challenge of managing the grid and providing reliable and safe electricity, so there is a need for fuse rails despite the availability of alternatives. Electrical fuse rails used by utility companies are typically compatible with power fuses, backup fuses, fuses, capacitor fuses, and disconnect fuses. Utilities operate at high voltage levels, so medium voltage fuse rails are preferred. Also, due to the short life of these fuses and low replacement cost, the demand for utilities is frequent.

North America is a major market for fuse rails due to high investment in advanced technologies by large businesses in the region. Europe will also play an essential role in this global market. Investors are still optimistic about the sector as a global recovery is evident despite fierce competition, and more new investors will enter the industry in the future. The Middle East & Africa, and Latin American markets are also rising.

The Asia-Pacific region is expected to experience the highest growth during the forecast period. Increased investment in power grids in developing economies such as China and India is expected to boost demand for fuse rails in the region. Furthermore, the power distribution sector in the area is improving to increase the rate of electrification in developing countries. Similarly, the Asia-Pacific industrial industry is driving the market in the region. Additionally, the area's transportation infrastructure is about to be electrified. This also creates opportunities for the fuse rails in the Asia-Pacific rail and traction field.
