The molded case circuit breakers market is estimated to grow ~$9.6B by 2021, at a compound annual growth rate of ~6.8 percent from 2016 to 2021. MCB and MCCB are used in the transmission & distribution, infrastructure (residential and commercial), manufacturing and process sector, transportation, and others. Growing infrastructural activities containing commercial buildings including airports, hospitals, and railway stations, growing rural electrification and increasing urban energy conservation programs, and growing industrialization and demand from utilities are forecast to steer the molded case circuit breakers market. The MCB and MCCB are expensive than traditional fuses, which could hinder industry growth in the underdeveloped economies where still the fuses are preferred over MCB and MCCB.

"The MCCB segment is anticipated to grow at the highest compound annual growth rate (CAGR) from 2016 to 2021"

With regard to the design type segment, MCCB are anticipated to constitute the quickest increasing sector from 2016 to 2021. There are variety of MCCB that are used for distinct applications including main electric feeder protection where power is supplied to important distribution boards, capacitor bank protection for commercial and industrial electrical systems, generator protection for big generators including gen-sets, welding application where current exceeds the capacities of MCB, and motor protection where MCCB can be adjusted to provide overload protection without tripping during the inrush current of an electric motor.

"Asia-Pac: The biggest market for MCB and MCCB"

Asia Pacific (APAC) is currently the biggest market for MCB and MCCB, closely followed by North America continent. The Asian market is primarily influenced by countries including China (CN), India (IN), and Japan (JP), where there are high demands for MCB and MCCB.
