Surge Arresters or Surge Protection Devices (SPD) are the devices that are used to protect the telecommunication systems and electrical power systems from damages caused by external or internal events. External events may consist of lightning, and internal damages can be caused due to switching events. Thus to protect the device from over-voltage transients, surge arresters are installed and attached to the conductor in the system. However, it must be noted that surge arresters do not protect the system from direct lightning. It only protects the system from the over-voltage transients caused by the lightning by diverting the lightning to the ground. The arrestor keeps the voltage of the equipment under control and withstanding limits and provides electric protection. Based on the level of efficiency, the surge arresters are rated. There are two basic requirements that any surge arrester has to fulfil: It must remain thermally stable in all the conditions, and it should be rated to provide the sufficient amount of electric protection to the system.


The end users of the Global Surge Arresters Market mainly include the companies with commercial, residential and industrial applications.

Market Dynamics

Few factors promoting Global Surge Arresters Market are the rapid industrialization in major parts of the world and establishment of large industries and factories in these regions. North America is currently leading the global market for surge arresters with approximately 30% of the share and revenue of around $545.2 Billion. Following America are Europe and the Asia Pacific, where industrialization is on the rise. Especially in India and China, surge arrester market is seeing a boom, and overall in Asia, it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% from 2017 to 2021. Recently, there have also been many instances where heavy losses have been incurred by industries due to damage caused by voltage fluctuations. This has encouraged industrialists to adopt surge arresters to avoid unnecessary damages and repair costs.

But one of the major reasons why surge arresters market is not expanding rapidly is the high cost of installation. Also, they have no live line capabilities, and the earth connection of the surge arresters have to be periodically checked. Also, their current handling capacities are very limited, and they can only be used with the systems where the system voltage does not exceed 33kV. Hence there are a few limitations which are hampering the growth of the global surge arrester market.

Market Segmentation

The Global Surge Arresters Market is segmented into the following categories:

  1. Product: Low Voltage Arresters, Medium Voltage Arresters, High Voltage Arresters
  2. Type: Rod arrester, Horn Gap Arrester, Multigap Arrester, Expulsion type arrester and Metal oxide arrester
  3. Application: Household, Industrial, Commercial
  4. Geography: North America, Asia Pacific, Europe

Regional/Geographic Analysis

Some of the major regions dominating in the Global Surge Arresters Market are North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific. Out of these, North America is the biggest player with a market value of around $545.2 Million. Also, the global market for surge arresters has been estimated to be worth around $1.7 Billion. It is also expected to grow at a rate of 5.10% up to 2021 and is projected to reach around $2.4 Billion by that time. Concern over depleting sources of energy and inclination towards the production of energy through non-renewable resources is what is driving the industry in these regions.
