Circuit Breaker Market to Reach USD 25.85 Billion by 2027; Increasing Focus on Electrification of Industrial Applications to Stoke Demand

September 09, 2020 | Energy & Power

The global circuit breaker market is expected to gain momentum by reaching USD 25.85 billion by 2027. This is attributable to the increasing focus on electrification across several industrial applications such as commercial and residential spaces across the globe. Moreover, the growing focus on electrifying rural areas is driving the demand for advanced circuit breaker. This information is published by Fortune Business Insights, in its latest report, titled, “Circuit Breaker Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Voltage (Low, Medium, and High), By Installation (Indoor and Outdoor), By End User, By Rated Voltage, and Regional Forecast, 2020-2027.” The report further observes that market stood at USD 16.04 billion in 2019 and is likely to exhibit a CAGR of 6.6% between 2020 and 2027.

Ideal Power Signs USD 1.2 Million Contract with Diversified Technologies to Expand Product Portfolio

In August 2020, Ideal Power Inc., a leading patented power switches provider, announced that it has signed a contract worth USD 1.2 million with Diversified Technologies, Inc. (DTI). According to the contract, Ideal is expected to supply its patented B-TRAN bi-directional power switches devices to DTI. This is a part of a project worth USD 3.0 million for a period of two-years awarded to DTI by the United States Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA). The primary objective of the contract is to develop and showcase B-TRAN enabled 12kV medium voltage direct current (MVDC) circuit breakers for the U.S. Navy ship electrification program. Similar collaborations by companies such as Ideal Power, Inc. are expected to bode well for the growth of the global market during the forecast period.
