Low Voltage Surge Arrester Market Size

Low Voltage Surge Arrester Market size exceeded USD 451.3 million in 2023 and is anticipated to grow at 6.1% CAGR from 2024 to 2032. Increasing demand for electricity across various sectors has been a major driver for the rise in deployment of surge arresters over the previous years.

Low Voltage Surge Arrester Market

Industries, commercial facilities, and residential areas require a stable and uninterrupted power supply to meet their operational needs, which propel the demand for surge arresters positively. As the demand for electricity continues to rise due to population growth, urbanization, and industrialization, there is a greater risk of voltage surges and electrical disturbances. Low voltage surge arresters play a crucial role in protecting electrical equipment and systems from such voltage spikes and ensuring the safety and reliability of electrical infrastructure, which in turn drives the industry growth.

COVID-19 Impact

The low voltage surge arrester market faced numerous challenges during the Covid-19 pandemic, causing hindrances to its growth throughout 2020. The global supply chains were disrupted as a result of lockdown measures, travel restrictions, and factory closures. These disruptions had an adverse impact on the manufacturing and distribution of surge protectors, leading to production and delivery delays. Consequently, customers experienced shortages or delays in acquiring surge protectors, which impacted the product demand growth adversely. Moreover, the slowdown in economic activities and temporary closures of businesses during the pandemic reduced the demand for surge protectors in commercial installations. With limited operations or shutdowns, the installation of new surge protection systems in commercial buildings, offices, and retail spaces declined, further affecting business development.

Low Voltage Surge Arrester Market Trends

The growing application of these devices in distribution transformers, low voltage switchgears, electricity service entrance locations, and various residential and commercial establishments is expected to drive the demand for such products. Furthermore, the adoption of low voltage surge arresters in primary and secondary distribution channels, coupled with significant investments in distribution infrastructure, will fuel the low voltage surge arrester market demand.
