Surge Protection Devices Market Projected to reach a Value of US$2.81 bn by the end of 2020

Surge protection refers to safeguarding electronic devices from power spikes and surges. A power surge is a substantial rise in voltage in comparison with the designated voltage levels. When the power voltage goes above the standard level, it is most likely to damage electronic devices. The increasing use of electronic equipment, reduction in data loss, delays, and maintenance costs, and increased demand from developing economies are the major factors driving the global market for surge protection devices. However, the volatile nature of raw material costs and the additional cost of installation are hampering the growth of the market.
