Electrical Safety Products Market Size

Electrical Safety Products Market was valued at around USD 27.1 billion in 2023 and is estimated to register a CAGR of around 5.9% between 2024 & 2032. Growing awareness about electrical safety and stringent government regulations mandating the use of safety products in various industries drive market growth.

Electrical Safety Products Market

Regulations such as the National Electrical Code (NEC) in the United States and similar standards globally necessitate the installation of safety products, boosting market demand. For instance, the National Electrical Code (NEC) in the United States, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC) standards globally, and the European Union's Low Voltage Directive (LVD) set stringent requirements for electrical installations and equipment. Compliance with these standards drives the demand for safety products such as circuit breakers, surge protectors, and ground fault protection devices.

Cost sensitivity is a major constraint in the electrical safety products market, affecting both consumers and businesses. Products like surge protectors, arc fault circuit interrupters (AFCIs), and ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs) typically command higher prices than standard electrical components. Consequently, budget-conscious consumers and businesses may hesitate to invest in complete electrical safety solutions, particularly in industries or regions where cost considerations are paramount.

Electrical Safety Products Market Trends

Innovations in electrical safety products, such as arc flash protection devices, ground fault circuit interrupters (GFCIs), and surge protectors, drive market growth. Advancements in materials, design, and integration of smart technologies enhance the effectiveness and functionality of these products, thereby increasing their adoption. For instance, in February 2024, ABB disclosed that Alva, a distribution system operator based in Finland, had embraced ABB's novel touch voltage-based earth-fault current protection method (IFPTOC). This method strikes a delicate equilibrium between supply quality and safety, guaranteeing that the electrical safety thresholds within the network remain unbreeched.
