According to the Indian Credit Rating Agency (ICRA), the domestic solar power capacity addition is expected at 7–7.5 GW (including about 1 GW of rooftop solar capacity) by 2020, based on tendering and awarding of projects. The increasing number of renewable integration projects and infrastructure developments are some of the factors responsible for augmenting the growth of the medium-voltage air circuit breaker industry.

Residential applications dominate the global air circuit breaker market “
Although residential applications account for the smallest share of the global air circuit market, the segment is anticipated to witness the fastest growth during the forecast period due to the rising investments in residential construction.Upcoming technologies such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things use a sizable number of sensors and automation devices, which will be needed in the future for ease of operations and safety as well as reliability.

Also, the support from government and banks through a low-interest rate for buying new properties has encouraged residential construction.

Middle East & Africa in the air circuit breaker industry is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
Asia Pacific accounted for majority of the global air circuit breaker market share, followed by North America. The Middle East & Africa market is projected to be the fastest-growing market during the forecast period, owing to rising investments towards renewable energy grid infrastructure development.
The government of Saudi Arabia is planning to restructure the country’s electricity network and has proposed to increase its electricity generating capacity to 120 GW by 2032 to meet the rapidly growing electricity demand.Additionally, Saudi Arabia is planning to add 41 GW from solar power, 18 GW from nuclear power, and 4 GW from other renewable sources to increase its power generation capacity.

The Nigerian government aims to achieve the electrification rate of 75% by 2020 by connecting households through grid extensions as well as non-grid solutions such as renewables.
