A surge protection device is one of the primary components of electrical installation protection systems used in the electrical power supply networks, communication and telephone networks.  They are primarily the most efficient type of overvoltage protection. The surge protector limits the voltage supply to an electric device by blocking or shorting the excess voltage. The advantages of surge protection devices include the protection of low voltage distribution systems against direct lightning stroke into the overhead power supply line or external lightning protection system, the hot ionized gases is not an issue with surge protection devices.

Global Surge protection devices market Segments Analysis:

Surge protection devices market is segmented based on application, type, voltage and region. Based on application the market is further segmented in to residential, commercial, and industrial. Industrial segment is expected to grow at higher rate during the forecast period. Industries are coming up with new technologically advanced equipment that are fine and expensive. To protect such devices the industries, require a variety of surge protection devices. On the basis of type the surge protection devices are further segmented as plug-in protection devices, hard wired, line cord, and power control devices. Amongst these segments, hard wired are dominating the market share. The hard-wired protection devices are capable of getting installed in the buildings to protect the devices from the lightning strikes and prevent the damage to power control and distribution boards.

On the basis of voltage, the market is classified as high voltage and low voltage. The surge protection devices are getting attention from high voltage segment as industries operate on high voltage equipment and machinery that are expensive, which are essential to protect against transient surge and lightning strikes, with surge protection devices.
