The global protective relay market exhibited moderate growth during 2015-2020. Looking forward, IMARC Group expects the market to grow at a CAGR of around 6% during (2021-2026). Protective relay refers to a mechanical or digital system that is installed in electrical circuits to minimize failures in motors, generators, and transformers. It receives inputs in the form of current, voltage, resistance, and temperature, compares them to set points, and provides the outputs in the form of indicator lights, control warnings or alarms. It also acts as a fault sensing device that gives the tripping command to the circuit breaker, thereby minimizing the damage caused to the other equipment or devices in the circuit. In comparison to the traditionally used protective relays, modern variants are microprocessor-based digital devices that are more efficient and cost-effective.
Rapid industrialization, along with the increasing demand for renewable energy sources from the power sector, is one of the key factors driving the growth of the market. The widespread adoption of renewable energy (RE) sources has further increased the product utilization at different functional levels in the smart grid network to avoid or mitigate power outages. Furthermore, the increasing construction of power substations across the globe is also providing a boost to the market growth. These substations supply electricity for commercial and domestic utilization and use protective relays to trigger alarm switches and circuit breakers during extreme voltage fluctuations. Additionally, the increasing complexities of electrical circuit designs have pushed the demand for protective relays to register over-current, over-voltage and under-frequency for reversing power flow and avoiding any major accidents. Other factors, including the rising awareness regarding safety in the power industry and extensive research and development (R&D) activities, are projected to drive the market further.
