Resettable Fuses also referred as multifuse or polyfuse or polyswitch, are Polymeric Positive Temperature Coefficient (PPTC) devices designed to protect against overcurrent faults by going from a low-resistance to high-resistance state in electronic circuit, thereby reducing warranty, service and repair costs. The fuse activates and trips when the flow of current received is more than the amount that can be managed by the electronic circuit. The resettable fuse will remain hot and stay tripped until the fault is cleared and power is removed. Further, the resettable fuse cools down and reset itself once the power overload is reversed and current flow is restored to a normal range. The resettable fuse devices are made from a composite of semi-crystalline polymer and conductive particles. Normally, the conductive particles form low-resistance networks in polymer. However, during overcurrent condition the temperature rises above the device’s switching temperature result in the meltdown of crystallites in the polymer. Lastly, the increase in volume due to melting of the crystalline phase separates the conductive particles resulting in a large non-linear increase in the resistance of the device. The resettable fuse market is expected to expand at a higher growth rate in the forecast period owing to the increasing demand of polyfuse in across diverse range of applications in consumer electronics such as in computer and its peripherals, security and fire alarm systems, loud speakers, mobile phones, and portable electronics. Some of the features like compact design, high reliability and fastest time to trip is a key force expected to drive the global resettable fuse market over the forecast period. Rising demand of consumer electronics and automotive is expected to spur the demand of resettable fuses is upcoming period. Introduction of IoT and automation process requires high performance resettable fuse and is expected to drive the demand of resettable fuses during forecast period. However, the resistance of the resettable fuse drains out battery life compared to its alternative fuse and the resettable feature is a disadvantage in lithium-ion applications. This is one of the factor going to hinder the growth of the market. The key players are collaborating with component manufactures to understand the involvement of a resettable fuse on different devices. Additionally, Efforts are being taken by many companies to upgrade their research and development activities to analyze further application that is expected to generate profitable growth opportunities for the market in the forecast period.
The global resettable fuse market is segmented on the basis of product type, material type, end user and region. On the basis of product type, the resettable fuse market has been segmented into Surface mount resettable fuse, Radial leaded resettable fuse, Battery strap resettable fuse and Others (Bladed resettable fuse). On the basis of material type, the resettable fuse market has been segmented into polymer fuse and ceramic fuse. By end user, the resettable fuse market has been segmented into consumer electronics, automotive, telecommunication, industrial control, and other applications. High demand of resettable fuses in multimedia applications and computer peripherals is expected to contribute towards growth of the market.
In the region wise study, the global resettable fuse market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Middle East & Africa, and South America. Asia Pacific which comprises China, India, South Korea, Australia and other rising economies captured significant market share followed by North America and Europe in 2017. Asia Pacific showed the fastest growth rate during the forecast period due to the emerging economies. China represents huge potential for the resettable fuse with the low cost of raw materials and huge production facilities in the country. However, The U.S is expected to exhibit high resettable fuse market growth over the forecast period owing to its early technological advancement and high capital expenditure.
The global resettable fuse market is highly fragmented with number of companies operating in the segment. Leading players are currently focusing on providing cost competitive products and acquiring small companies to gain market share in the resettable fuse market. Some of the companies operating in this market are Littelfuse, Inc., Bel Fuse Inc., Eaton Corporation, ON Semiconductor, Cooper Bussmann, Schurter Holding AG, Vishay Electronics, Bourns, Inc., Raychem Corporation and others.
