Region : Global | Report ID: FBI101668 | Status : Ongoing



The modern era of technological life mainly depends upon the availability of electricity. Everyone is surrounded by numerous electronic equipment in this tech world. The electricity supplied must be at a level of quality to facilitate performance of sensitive electronic equipment. But due to climatic conditions and technical glitches, disruptions occur. Surge is common problem which disrupts the electricity supply and hampers the performance of consumer electronics.

It mainly occurs from utility companies, while power grid switching and lighting also causes surge. Surge protection devices are used to limit transient voltages by limiting surge current to protect the electronic equipment. It is an economical solution to prevent downtimes, improve system and data reliability by eliminating equipment damages due to transient current or surges.

Surge protection devices find several applications in power distribution, HVAC equipment, UPS, medical equipment, lighting circuits, and so on. Therefore, the rising consumption of electricity along with growing consumer electronics is expected to accelerate the growth of the surge protection devices.

Key Market Driver -

Key Market Driver – Elevated consumption of consumer electronics and incessant demand for electricity
