Overview of the global vacuum contactors market

Research analysis on the global vacuum contactors market identifies the increasing usage of HVAC processes as one of the major factors that will have a positive impact on the market’s growth in the coming years. Technavio’s market research analysts predict that this market will grow at a CAGR of about 7% by 2021. Vacuum contactors are widely used in HVAC systems since refrigeration, cooling, and ventilation equipment need an AC motor system. Vacuum contactors provide regular power supply and lower the power surge and short circuit currents throughout the power system in an AC motor. Moreover, these contactors also lower the power consumption levels and protect the equipment that is connected to an electrical network. Government regulations on energy efficiency and the use of environmentally friendly refrigerants are likely to boost the sales of HVAC equipment in Western Europe and other developed markets. This will increase the vacuum contactors market demand for HVAC equipment during the predicted period.

The rising requirement for improving productivity and the efficiency of equipment in industries will be one of the key vacuum contactors market trends gaining traction in the market. Modernization of plant facilities to integrate automation has become a vital part of numerous manufacturing processes. The use of advanced equipment and control technologies result in streamlined, efficient, and faster processes. The development in automation trends is likely to drive the competitive environment of the global industrial sector. Currently, switchgear manufacturers are increasingly investing towards the modernization of technologies in the manufacturing industries to achieve faster and better returns. Contactors will play a significant role in process industries, mainly due to their wide range of applications, the ease of use, lower maintenance requirement, and energy-efficient properties.
