High-Current Terminal Blocks Market Introduction

A high-current terminal block is defined as a power-driven connector in which the wires are clamped down to the metallic part by a bolt. It permits more than one circuit to connect to another circuit and frequently contains both copper and aluminum strips that are designed to connect different components. These strips make a bus bar for power supply which is sent to the related connected components.

A high-current terminal block is specifically designed to endure the harshest environment conditions and delivers a robust locking apparatus that foils un-mating of the connector pair under stress. Novel innovations in IEC DIN rail sectional blocks and NEMA have augmented the utilization of these high-current terminal blocks in harsh environments, construction, discrete manufacturing, conveyance lines, amusement park ride controls, special machines, commercial office buildings, building automation, and educational campuses.

High-Current Terminal Blocks Market- Competitive Landscape

  • In August 2018, TE Connectivity acquired ABB’s ENTRELEC terminal block business. ABB’s terminal block business provides products and services across 70 countries worldwide. By this acquisition, TE Connectivity is expected to increase its geographical presence and also its market share worldwide.
  • In October 2017, The Weidmüller Group acquired W Interconnections group companies in the U.S., Mexico, and Canada from Rockwell Automation, Inc. provides industrial connectivity and automation including terminal blocks (high-current, multilayer). This acquisition would help the company to increase its market presence specifically in the U.S and surrounded areas.
