Manufacturers of Electrical Fuses to Capitalize on Rising Demand for Electric Vehicles


An electrical fuse can be defined as a device which is used to interrupt the flow of current by interrupting the electrical circuit during the condition of over current caused by short circuit and/or overload. During over current, the fuse element melts and saves the circuit as it disconnects the supply from the load. Electrical fuses are classified under different voltage segments such as low voltage fuses and high voltage fuses. On the basis of voltage level of installations, the electrical fuses market in North America has been segmented into two categories; low voltage fuses and high voltage fuses wherein plug-in fuses and cartridge fuses are the segments the low voltage fuses has been further categorized into. The electrical fuses market on the basis of application has been segmented into automotive, construction, consumer electronics, industrial, power generation and others. By country, the market has been segmented into the U.S., Canada and Mexico. The above segments have been covered in terms of both revenue (USD million) and volume (units million).

The need for reliable power delivery in North America is one of the primary factors responsible for the growth of the electrical fuses market in the region. The demand for electricity has been significantly high as a result of various factors such as economic growth, technological advancements and increase in population in the past few decades. The construction and automotive sectors across North America are witnessing significant growth since the last few years which in turn has resulted in an increased demand for electrical fuses. Large spending on housing and automobiles is driving demand for electrical fuses in the region. The construction sector is also experiencing a boom which in turn has triggered demand for electrical fuses in North America. These factors in combination are expected to drive the demand for electrical fuses in North America during the forecast period.

Technical Aspects of Electrical Fuses –

However, the advent of counterfeit switchgear and its components has adversely impacted the growth opportunities for the electrical fuses market. These products often copy the external look and design of leading companies’ products and are of poor quality and less reliable. Profitability of original switchgear manufacturers has decreased due to the presence of counterfeit switchgears in the market.

North America possesses significant opportunities for the growth of the electrical fuses market. Electric vehicles and solar energy are expected to witness a boom in the near future and are projected to be emerging markets for electrical fuses. There is greater diversity of fuses in vehicles as vehicles consume more power than before. Hence, the count of electric fuses in vehicles is projected to increase.
