    Market Highlights

    What are circuit breakers?

    Circuit breakers are electrical devices that mechanically interrupt and isolate a circuit during the flow of excessive current. It is a switching device that can be operated manually or automatically to control and protect an electrical power system. The modern aircraft electrical power system largely deals with a huge power network and a large number of associated electrical equipment. In the absence of a circuit breaker, an abnormal or excessively high current may flow through the aircraft electrical equipment and power network during an electrical fault or short circuit fault, which may damage the aircraft electrical equipment permanently.

    Market Insights-

    Presently, the aerospace industry has been battling with several unforeseen challenges. The grounding of the B737 max first paused the industry growth trajectory, affected the entire value chain for a short period of time. The industry stakeholders were hammering hard to realign the industry wheels on the track but the onset of the pandemic derailed the industry to almost a decade back. Other noticeable setbacks are the temporary halt in the production of B787 and delays in the market entries of B777x, C919, and MC21 that subdued the recovery trajectory. The impact of these challenges has been recorded in an entire aerospace ecosystem including the circuit breaker, a small but extremely useful electrical device. The market for circuit breakers in the aerospace industry recorded a massive decline of over 20% in the year 2020.

    However, the industry stakeholders are still optimistic about the quick recovery, close to the year 2024 or 2025. Narrow-body aircraft may record the prompt recovery supported by the increase in the production rate of A320 and A220 paired with the resumption in B737Max deliveries. Furthermore, entries of C919 and MC-21 assist the market to log the faster recovery. On the other hand, wide-body aircraft, the fatty aircraft category, may undergo a couple of more challenging years in the wake of B787 challenges paired with delays in B777x entry. Overall, the aircraft circuit breakers market is likely to grow at a significant CAGR of 7% in the long run to reach a value of US$ 135.1 million in 2026.

    Segment Analysis

    By Aircraft Type

    Based on the aircraft type, the market is segmented into commercial aircraft, regional aircraft, general aviation, helicopter, military aircraft, and UAV. Among these aircraft types, commercial aircraft is expected to remain the dominant as well as the fastest-growing segment of the market during the forecast period. An expected increase in production rates of key aircraft programs, such as A320 family and A220; re-entry of B737Max; and introduction of variants of existing and upcoming aircraft programs, such as A321XLR, Irkut MC-21, and COMAC C919, are likely to create a strong demand for circuit breakers in the commercial aircraft segment over the next five years. Furthermore, both, Boeing and Airbus, are optimistic about the market recovery and have been projecting over 40,000 commercial and regional aircraft deliveries over the next twenty years, assuring a healthy demand for circuit breakers in the long run.

    By System Type

    Based on the system type, the aircraft circuit breakers market is classified as AC and DC circuit breakers. The AC circuit breakers segment is expected to remain the larger and the faster growing segment in the market during the forecast period, owing to the reason that they are the primary source of electrical power in an aircraft.

    By Region

    In terms of regions, North America is expected to remain the largest market for aircraft circuit breakers during the forecast period. The region is home to a large number of aircraft manufacturers, driven by a strong supply chain network and extraordinary technological capabilities. The USA is the growth engine of the North America's market. Canada, a relatively small market, is also likely to contribute to the region’s market growth, mainly propelled by the A220 assembly base in the country.

    Know the global insights, 

    Asia-Pacific is an emerging market with immense growth potential in China, Japan, and India. China has been an apple of the eye of the entire industry stakeholders, mainly because of growing air passenger traffic paired with flourishing indigenous aircraft infrastructure. All the major companies are establishing assembly plants in the country to tap the growth potential. India, a minuscule market, is likely to exhibit huge growth potential in the coming years, particularly in the commercial aerospace and military aircraft categories. Furthermore, the governments are taking several initiatives to build a strong industry infrastructure within India to grow the Indian aerospace industry.
