Market Overview

The Global Surge Protection Device market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.36% over the forecast period (2022 - 2027). Power demand requirements and technical demands on the power supply and storage systems are continuously increasing due to the significant growth of the power sector. Major losses in electricity networks are primarily caused by improperly built equipment and devices that cannot handle heavy loads and by outdated systems that are expensive to maintain. Industries and business sectors seek specialized devices that shield electrical equipment from load imbalance and are suitable for high switching rate applications.

  • The global market for surge protection devices is growing primarily as a result of the automobile industry's quick expansion and the rising need for small, smart portable appliances with quicker processors, better power densities, and more sensitivity. Additionally, the market is being positively impacted by the growing use of electrical and mechanical components in the automotive sector to enhance comfort, safety, and telematics for passengers as well as driver assistance and navigation. Accordingly, the usage of these devices to give intelligent and high-performance functionalities by preventing overheating and wiring is fueling market expansion.
  • Similar to any sensitive electrical equipment, EV chargers also require surge protection. Voltage fluctuations within the power grid can render charging ports useless. With the accelerated growth in adoption of EVs across major economies, the demand for surge protection devices is expected to see significant growth. For instance, According to Indian Brand Equity Foundation, In FY21, India produced 22.65 million cars annually, with 13 million built between April and October 2021. Sales of electric vehicles (EVs) hit a new high of 5,592 units in the third quarter of FY22. Overall, 329,190 electric vehicles (EVs) were sold in India in 2021, representing a 168% YoY increase over the 122,607 units sold the previous year.
  • The demand for electrical products is growing as a result of rising population levels and expanding economic growth in developing countries. The level of living has elevated due to increased industrialisation and an increase in disposable money. Consequently, during the past few years, consumption and spending on electronic goods have increased dramatically. The rising use of microprocessors in a wider range of products and the ongoing shrinking of microelectronic components are both to blame for the rise in equipment damage. The main drivers of the expansion of the global market for surge protection devices are the rising nations' adoption of high-tech products such as LCD, LED, laptops, washing machines, and televisions.
  • The stay-at-home orders issued across multiple countries have further complicated electronics manufacturing and related services. With remote/online work only having limited applications on the factory floor, many businesses in this field have been classified as essential product providers. Electronics manufacturers carry out many critical tasks that support other industries around the world. From product assembly to circuit board designs that power necessary medical equipment, electronics manufacturing has been an integral part of the economy and the healthcare space during this COVID-19 outbreak.
  • Common surge protectors can prevent voltage spikes and surges, but they cannot block the powerful, catastrophic burst of current caused by a nearby lightning strike. With a small electronic gadget inside a power strip, direct lightning current is simply too large to shield. No matter how many capacitors and battery banks are present, if the surge protectors are in the route of a lightning strike, all lightning will simply flash over the object. The majority of SPDs offer a respectable level of protection against a direct voltage strike or surge. They cannot completely guarantee against harm to any electronic equipment, which poses a severe obstacle to the widespread use of surge protection devices.

Scope of the Report

Surge Protective Devices (SPD) are used to guard against electrical power surges known as transient overvoltages in the electrical installation, which comprises the consumer unit, wiring, and accessories. A surge's effects might cause immediate failure or equipment damage that only becomes apparent over time. The Global Surge Protection device market is segmented by type (Hard-Wired, Plug-in, Line Cord), discharge current ( up to 10KA, 10KA-25KA, Above 25KA), end-user (Industrial, Commercial, Residential) and geography.

Key Market Trends

Residential Segment is one of the Factor Driving the Market

  • To meet the increasing demand of the customers and the rise in the residential sector is driving the market players to incorporate new features in the existing product or develop new products to meet the customer demands. For example, Siemens, The new BoltShield QSPD series of surge protection is specially made for residential applications and offers the finest defense against both internally and externally generated surges. Due to cost and space concerns, many buildings only have one SPD, which is situated in the primary incoming load center. This contravenes IEEE recommendations, which call for cascading SPDs throughout the building.
  • According to Statistics Norway, Housing Starts in Norway increased to 2777 units in May from 1929 units in April of 2022. Furthermore, in January 2022, The Norwegian municipality of Stavanger gave Swedish construction company Skanska a USD 85.5 million (NOK750 million) contract to develop a new municipal town center. The Storhaugneighborhood of Stavanger will receive the LervikQuarter development project. The 26,000m2 structure will have parking places, a primary school, a kindergarten, offices, a grocery shop, a multipurpose hall, and other amenities. Increasing construction projects like this will enhance the HVAC equipment market's growth. An increase in residential projects will drive the market.
  • With affluent countries like the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Denmark, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Belgium, and other Scandinavian countries EU has one of the highest per capita income and GDP in the world. According to IMF, the European Union Gross Domestic Product in 2020 was USD 15,167 billion and is expected to reach USD 21,183 billion by 2026. The region's per capita income is also high, with seven European countries being in the top seven in the world. This allows the European citizens to spend higher on Surge protection devices.
  • According to the United States Census Bureau, as of May 2021, the private housing authorized by building permits was at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 1,681,000. The value was 34.9% above the May 2020 rate. The increase in residential units creates growth opportunities for the Surge protection device market.
  • Even though Mumbai has one of the highest real estate costs in the nation, several factors are currently in play that has made buying a home in this city a practical alternative. A recent real estate study in India found that home sales in the country's top seven cities exceeded Q1 2020 by more than 29 percent, totaling 58,920 units. This is significantly higher than pre-COVID levels, indicating an economic improvement. In the seven cities, 62,130 residential units were constructed in the first quarter of 2021, an increase of 18% from the previous quarter and 51% year over year. The top seven cities in India are National Capital Region (NCR), Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR), Bengaluru, Pune, Hyderabad, Chennai, and Kolkata. Such a huge increase in the residential sector will drive the studied market.
