The global surge protection devices (SPD) market is expected to gain a higher CAGR during the forecast period. The lightning protection device directs the high current to the ground, eventually raising the potential of the ground close to the building which is installed. This results in overvoltage on electrical equipment directly through the ground terminals and stimulated through supply cables situated underground.
There are switching effects on power distribution that result in cut out lead voltages that enter a building. If the building is within the proximity of generating station or upstream switching point, the produced voltages will be much higher. Therefore, the objective of a surge protection device is to augment safety in case of electrical surges.
Surge protection devices market is driven by rise in global warming and rise in incidences of lighting calamities in the world. In addition, a surge protection device enables protection against the failure of lighting equipment in case of after effects of any disaster. On a commercial scale, a surge protection device also helps in scenarios of electrical malfunction or failure of electrical equipment. Moreover, rise in popularity for surge protection devices among consumers particularly in the developing economies is stimulating the market growth. However, lack of awareness for surge protection devices in developing or backward countries is hindering the market growth.
Geographical segmentation for surge protection devices (SPD) market spans North America, South America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, Middle East and Africa. North America and South America regions are likely to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period owing to presence of technological infrastructure and electricity backup oriented devices.
