San Jose, CA (Vocus) November 1, 2010
Global Fuses & Circuit Breakers market is expected to grow moderately in the coming years. With the maturing of western markets, the market is projected to achieve a slower, yet steady growth. Developing economies in the Asia-Pacific region, including China and India are expected to be the fastest growing markets. Prospects for aftermarket segment of the industry are expected to remain favorable owing to robust growth witnessed in OEMs during the last decade. With increased concern for safety and security in the electronic, medical, and telecommunication equipments, the need for newer fuses and circuit breakers has increased significantly. Electronic and automotive equipment industries are the largest markets in North America, Japan, and Europe, while construction, power generation, and industrial machinery industries are expected to drive growth in the Asia-Pacific, Middle East, and Latin American regions. As the fuses and circuit breakers market in developed economies is near saturation stage, several companies are exploring other potential, growth oriented regions, including the Middle East, China, India, South America, Russia, and Eastern Europe. The Middle Eastern countries in particular, are vital from the view of untapped business opportunities from new power system installations in the region. On a similar note, the other developing countries are important for their abundant, inexpensive and low technology products.
Increasing growth in the end-use sectors during the past few years is primarily driving the demand for fuses and circuit breakers. In specific, the powerful growth in telecommunication and electronic equipment is expected to propel overall demand in a big way. Fuses and circuit breakers are extensively used in several diverse OEM industries including industrial machinery, telecommunication equipment, medical equipment, transportation equipment, electrical & electronic equipment, and various others. Rapid advancements in automobile electronics are also playing a vital role in escalating the global market demand.

The complete collapse of construction market in 2007 amidst the mortgage crisis and credit crunch took a heavy toll on the fuses & circuit breakers market. The situation is expected to remain grim for the next 1-2 years, with gradual market incline likely only by 2011, owing to a rebound in industrial and construction activity, specifically for residential buildings. While developed and mature markets of North America, Japan and Europe were the worst hit, developing economies including Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Latin America fared relatively better, registering marginal decline in growth rates.
