The market is segmented by type into hard-wired, plug-in, and line cord, out of which, the plug-in segment is anticipated to hold the largest share in the global surge protection devices market. This can be accounted to the high suitability of plug-in devices for installation at the origin of the network, and their ability to effectively protect equipment from indirect lightning strikes. Additionally, on the basis of end user, the industrial segment is predicted to acquire the largest share during the forecast period, which can be credited to the increasing requirement for servers, data centers and communication systems in industries. Apart from these, growing applications of industry 4.0 initiative for electric machinery and automobiles to facilitate remote maintenance and diagnostics is also assessed to accelerate growth of the market segment in the coming years. 

Major Macro-Economic Indicators Impacting the Market Growth

Electricity Consumption

In 2018, the world’s total energy supply was 14282 Mtoe, wherein the highest share in terms of source was captured by oil, accounting for 31.6%, followed by coal (26.9%), natural gas (22.8%), biofuels and waste (9.3%), nuclear (4.9%), hydro (2.5%), and other (2.0%). Where there was an increase in energy demand in 2018, the year 2019 witnessed slow growth as the energy efficiency improved owing to decline in the demand for cooling and heating. However, in 2020, the electricity demand decreased by 2.5% in the first quarter of 2020 due to the outbreak of Coronavirus resulting in government imposed shutdowns in order to limit the spread of the virus, which was further followed by shutdown of numerous business operations impacting their growth. This also resulted in decline of 5.8% in the worldwide CO2 emissions which was recorded to be five times larger than the one recorded during the global financial crisis in 2009. However, in 2021, the demand for oil, gas and coal is estimated to witness growth, which is further projected to create opportunities for market growth. Moreover, rising environment degradation and awareness related to climate change is motivating many key players to employ sustainable energy strategies and invest significantly in environment-friendly power generation technologies with an aim to promote sustainable development among various nations around the world. Such factors are anticipated to promote the growth of the market in upcoming years.
