Reclosers Market: Overview
A recloser is an electric power or protector distribution network. It includes a circuit breaker which can easily detect an over current or short circuit network. In addition it has a facility which can automatically switch off when it is not in use. Reclosers are used in electronic overhead distribution systems to detect and stop temporary faults. It can protect a power system from a short circuit, among others things. A recloser is essentially a switch that can re-establish an electrical circuit automatically or manually and also remotely after a distraction of service. It can easily detect faults and closes and resets to unlock the line. Reclosers are available in three types based on phase: Single phase reclosers, three phase reclosers, and triple single reclosers. Reclosers work with a hydraulic mechanism, and it has a separate coil series with the line. The control mechanism is placed outside the reclosers and collects current signal.
Reclosers Market: Growth Drivers and Restraints
The reclosers market is expected to grow steadily during the forecast period. The rising need for an efficient power distribution network and no manual intervention for restoring power are acting as a driver for this market. In addition, various companies across the world are adopting this device for cost reduction in the event of an outage, which is in turn contributing to the growing demand for reclosers. Moreover, the need for automation systems is also boosting the reclosers market worldwide.
However, in the reclosers industry, many manufacturers produce cheaper alternatives to these components. In addition, not enough funding from governments is also adversely impacting the reclosers market. Under this condition, where product quality is reduced, end users are often forced to look for alternatives. There is intense competition among recloser manufacturers for after-sales services. This factor is acting as a restraint on the market. The current technological advancement in the reclosers industry are, however, helping create new opportunities for the market. In addition, gas-free and oil-free reclosers, which are a relatively new product category in this space, will likely help the global demand for reclosers gain traction.
