The busbar market is expected to grow from an estimated USD 12.68 Billion in 2016 to USD 16.55 Billion by 2021, registering a CAGR of 5.48% from 2016 to 2021. The global market is witnessing significant growth because of energy consumption due to urbanization & industrialization, increasing focus on energy efficiency, and cost & operational benefits of busbar over cables.

Market Ecosystem:
The ecosystem of the global busbar market starts with suppliers of basic components such as copper, aluminum, or alloy material. The manufactured parts are then assembled by the OEM (original equipment manufacturer) to form a busbar, which is then tested. This stage is followed by the distribution stage, following which the product is provided to the end-users. Distribution is the next stage of the supply chain. The top players in the industry market their products through self-operated sales offices located near target markets, while regional players rely on distribution partnerships to access diverse markets. Some of the major players in the market are ABB LTD. (Switzerland), Schneider Electric (France), Siemens AG (Germany), Eaton Corporation plc. (Ireland), and Legrand S.A. (France), among others.
