Circuit protection is the intentional installation of a weak link in an electrical circuit. Automobiles we use today have a more life expectancy due to improvements in materials and design in machines, also due to the use of circuit protectors. In the past two decades, industrial automation has witnessed several advancements such as use of rogowski sensor over iron core sensors and tighter tolerances in bands on TCC. Industrial automation is constantly increasing its benchmark in setting a standards for each industry verticals which includes construction, automotive and transportation, electronics and electrical equipment, industrial, and energy, among other markets.

Electronic equipment and systems have replaced mechanical devices due to technological advances. Without appropriate electrical protection in automation, these electronic systems may fail without any warning. Automotive circuit protection is important from view to improve performance, productivity and overall efficiency of the machine. The rising need of circuit protection in automotive sector along with customized solution through a product offering created the need for automotive circuit protection analysis.
Circuit protection in automation industry involves maximizing productivity through protecting the device or machine across the product life cycle of the products. Furthermore, it allows the manufacturer to cut down the cost of unexpected shut down and such problems which improves overall performance of products by using automotive circuit protection Moreover, companies are investing more on sustainable production and circuit protection systems adopts sustainable approaches in process of automation. The circuit protection in automotive systems is an outcome of increasing focus on efficiency improvement and energy saving by automotive industry. Additionally, the industrial automotive segment demand improved industrial technology and machineries.
These aforesaid factors are expected to drive the growth in automotive circuit protection market. On the other hand, these automation systems are at times considered as an additional cost to the company. However customers have started demanding for more advanced circuitry protection devices that are used for specific needs of costly electronic control systems and comply with the rigorous standards of the automotive segment this might be a challenge face by automotive industry.
The automotive circuit protection market can be segmented on the basis of type, device and geographical regions. By type automotive circuit protection market can be further segmented into ESD protection, overcurrent protection and overvoltage protection. In ESD (electrostatic discharge) protection there is an unexpected flow of electricity between two electrically charged objects caused by contact, this situation can be very harmful to device hence ESD protection is used with variety of devices. Overcurrent Protection provides guard to service entrance, feeder and branch circuit conductors and equipment. Whereas Overvoltage protection is done or required when the voltage in a circuit is raised above its upper design limit.
