Report Description

Electric Fuse Market Electric Fuse Electric Fuse Market was valued at US$ 3.5 billion in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 6% over the forecast period (2021-2027). A fuse is an electric safety device which protects an electric circuit from excessive electric current. Electric fuses have a long history. They have widely been used for both high voltage and low voltage power systems. The pre-arc I-t (current vs. time) is an important parameter of electric fuse. Traditionally, the electrical fuse is designed by experiment and the I-t characteristics are then obtained through experiments. The fuse is an intentional weak link in a circuit. It is a thermally responsible device which is designed to provide overcurrent protection. The fuse is used to protect equipment’s and conductors from over damaging and can quickly deenergize faulted circuits which helps to minimize the hazards to personnel. Fuses are of many types like fast-acting, time delay or current limiting and non-current limiting.


Key reasons for the industry growth include is the growth of industries which are energy-intensive and require large amounts of fuel and electricity for the operation of mechanical drivers, furnaces, boilers, ventilation, heating, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems etc. Traditionally, the industries used IC engines, furnaces, and fossil-fuel boilers among others as non-electric sources of energy. Most industries are shifting towards electrification with the global movement towards the use of low carbon future and to ensure reliable operations. With this increase in electricity use, the use of electric fuse is also increasing, which is influencing the market growth. According to the 2017 report Electrification Futures Study by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL), currently only 25% of the total world energy demand is met by electricity. According to the US Energy Information Administration, the machinery industry is expected to increase its electrification by up to 13% and the electrical products and plastics industry by 8% by 2050. Few industries like that of electrical products, machinery and computers already fulfill up to 50% of their energy requirements by electricity. This increased use of electricity in all compartments of industries is influencing the growth of the electric fuse market.
