The global Vacuum Contactor market is estimated to expand at 8.02% CAGR during the forecast period. Vacuum Contactor is an electrically controlled device that can make or break an electrical circuit with the help of vacuum interruptor or relay. Vacuum contactors are often used as motor starter to prevent a sudden increase in load in the motor start-up. This would help to reduce the power consumption.

The growing demand for vacuum contactor market is attributed to the growth in industrialization and urbanization as this would increase the demand for reliable power supply. Vacuum contactors are more cost effective as compared to circuit breakers for medium voltage applications. This would create an opportunity for market players to boost the growth of vacuum contactor market during the forecast period. One of the major restraints for the global vacuum contactor market is the risk associated with loss of vacuum in the vacuum contactor.

Vacuum Contactor is an electrical device that is used for load breaking through the help of a controlled switch. Vacuum interrupting contacts are enclosed inside a vacuum bottle, which prevents the development of arc when there is a voltage fluctuation. Some of the major applications of vacuum contactors are in motors, transformers, capacitors, reactors, and resistive loads, among others. Many industries such as oil and gas, commercial, mining, utilities, and others require vacuum contactors to protect their expensive equipment.

Industry Segmentation

Based on application, the market is segmented as motors, transformers, capacitors, reactors, resistive load, and others. Motor is estimated to dominate the market during the forecast period. Vacuum contactors help to reduce the possibility of insulation failure on downstream motors and transformers. Moreover, it controls the motors in harsh environment and regulate the power supply to prevent a sudden increase in load in the motor.
