The global circuit breaker market reached a value of around US$ 7 billion in 2017. The market value is further expected to reach US$ 9 billion by 2023, exhibiting a CAGR of 4.5% during 2018-2023. An electronic device functions through a path which has two or more points to carry the electrical current. This path is called a circuit and the device that interrupts this flow of electrical current is called the circuit breaker. These circuit breakers are used for preventing the fluctuations in the flow of current and protecting other devices that are attached to the circuit. Circuit breakers help in controlling, regulating and mastering electric power efficiently.
