Surge Arrester Market Scenario

Surge Arrester Market share is projected to be worth USD 2.85 billion by 2027, registering a CAGR of 4.26% during the forecast period.

Globally, there is increasing demand for power generation, expanding the smart grid network, increasing investment in transmission and distribution facilities, increasing industrialization and energy infrastructure development. The market's main drivers are increased demand for electrical appliances, deployment of electrical appliances, boost in power generation, and replacement of existing power infrastructure with new ones.

North America accounts for the largest share of the global demand for surge arresters led by China, the fastest growing region. A further reason for growth in this market is technological advances in the sector. Increasing focus on mitigating power quality issues across industrialized economies due to widespread voltage spikes & surges issues will substantially enhance the adoption of these units.

Increasing the share of electricity in total industrial energy consumption due to economic growth & development would also fuel the penetration of the systems.

The factor that restrains the global demand for surge arresters is that competition from the unorganized power sector and arrester installation costs, particularly in developing nations. However, it's expected to have an edge over rivals and improvements to help players deal with the situation, technology wise, The demand for surge arresters is growing every day, as companies such as Siemens are working tremendously on application-based technology to ensure that the outcome is popular, reliable and secure.

In the locomotive sector the demand for surge arrester is growing. Increasing government efforts towards electrification to boost access to electricity in rural areas coupled with increasing emphasis on commercial facilities operating under harsh weather conditions with high lightning strikes will fuel the growth of the residential & commercial surge arrester industry.
