Market Report Description

The Global Surge Protector Market size is expected to reach $5 billion by 2027, rising at a market growth of 5.6% CAGR during the forecast period.

Surge protectors that are situated as near to the building distribution system as feasible give the best protection from both outside and internally produced surges. Many buildings only have one surge protection device (SPD) at the main incoming panel and therefore do not distribute SPDs all through the building for cost and space considerations.

Surge protectors are inexpensive and simple to install across most panels across a structure, which is a driving reason for the country's market growth. Surge protectors can provide complete protection for a whole building.

Various protective methods or equipment customised to each other are necessary to reliably safeguard a structural system against lightning strikes and surge voltages. Internal lightning protection, External lightning protection, grounding and equipotential bonding, and coordinated SPD system are some of the major categories.

A multi-level system of surge protection devices that are synchronised with each other is referred to as a coordinated SPD system. The actions below are advised for achieving a high-performance SPD system: Make lightning protection zones in the structural structure.

A conventional surge protector distributes electrical electricity to a number of devices hooked into the power strip via the outlet. The protector will channel any excess power into the outlet grounding wire if the voltage rises over the permitted threshold. Alongside to the hot and neutral wires are grounding wires. In case of the breakdown of the system of hot and neutral wires, they give a channel for electrical current to follow. A surge is defined as a voltage rise that lasts three nanoseconds or longer. A spike is defined as a voltage surge that lasts only few nanoseconds.

As a result, throughout the forecast period, the rising necessity to safeguard electrical equipment being used applications like solar plants and smart grids from lightning surges is anticipated to boost the segment's expansion.

Surge Protector Market Size - Global Opportunities and Trends Analysis Report 2017-2027

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The coronavirus's negative worldwide consequences are already being seen, and need for surge protector is expected to rise in 2020. Following the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the World Health Organization issued a public health emergency. The epidemic has already spread to over 100 countries, causing tremendous mortality throughout the world. The export and import industries, as well as worldwide manufacturing, tourism, and the financial sector, have all been severely harmed.

Due to the suspension of manufacturing facilities in the region, European nations under lockdown have lost a significant amount of business and money. The epidemic had a significant influence on production and manufacturing operations, resulting in a decrease in surge protection device growth in 2020.

Market Growth Factors:

The demand for electronic device protection solutions is increasing

The rising use of electrical equipment, as well as the growing demand from utility consumers for power supply stability, has highlighted the need of enhancing the dependability and power quality of electric systems. Surge protection can prevent costly electronic equipment and objects from being destroyed. Surge protection devices will be in more demand all across the world as a result of this.

In rising economies, high-tech equipment has to be protected

The adoption of smart devices is growing as the population of emerging countries grows and their economies expand. With an estimated 7.5 billion linked devices projected to embrace the Industrial Internet of Things by 2020, businesses are growing increasingly reliant on innovative technology. The level of living has significantly improved of increased industrialisation and disposable money. As a result, electronic item use and spending have increased dramatically in recent years.

Marketing Restraining Factor:

Misleading preconceptions and poor design specifications

To allow SPDs to sustain greater voltage surges, numerous components must be placed in parallel arrays in the circuit. To calculate the overall surge current capacity of the completed product, SPD makers compound the surge current capacity of each suppression element by the number of parallel components. This estimate may appear to be rational, yet it violates every engineering standard. During a surge occurrence, one particular suppression component may have to endure greater energy than just its neighbours due to poor mechanical design.

Surge Protector Market Share and Industry Analysis Report 2020

Type Outlook

The Surge Protector Market is classified into three categories based on Type: Type 1, Type 2, and Type 3. In 2020, the surge protector market's Type 2 category registered for a significant revenue share. The Type 2 entrance panel is designed to be installed on the load side of the entrance panel. SPDs of Type 2 are intended for industrial and commercial use. Electrical appliances and distribution panels must be protected at all times in a factory or commercial facility, as power outages or equipment damage can significantly impede output.

Voltage Outlook

The Surge Protector Market is classified into three categories based on voltage: high, medium, and low. In the surge protector market, the high voltage category generated the highest revenue share in year 2020. 250 V, 500 V, and 1000 V high voltage multi-range DC power supplies produce 5 kW of clean output power in a compact 2U form size. Analog Devices' high voltage surge stoppers, overcurrent protection, overvoltage protection, and circuit breaker ICs provide reliable front-end protection in tiny, easy-to-design, low-power, packages.

Sales Channel Outlook

Surge Protector Market is segmented into Online and Offline Sales Channels. In the surge protector market by 2020, the Online Sales channel will have a large revenue share. Surge protectors may be found at a variety of internet retailers. Furthermore, these online outlets offer a variety of brands and pricing, allowing buyers to select the most acceptable option. In addition, the growing popularity of e-commerce will increase demand for surge protectors in the online market.

Application Outlook

The Surge Protector Market is segmented into three categories based on application: industrial, commercial, and residential. In 2020, the commercial sector will have a considerable revenue share of the surge protector market. The commercial sector in emerging countries, such as India, is rising notably as a result of the government's favourable initiatives, like Make in India and Startup India. Due to such positive steps, competition in the business sector is projected to heat up. As a result, commercial establishments are predicted to use SPDs to protect their equipment, avoid unwanted downtimes, save money, and increase profitability, resulting in the segment's expansion throughout the forecast period.
