Majority of electronic devices and equipments cannot distinguish between normal loads and overloads. Hence, electronic devices keep drawing current until they burn themselves. Circuit breakers and fuses act as vital protecting devices by limiting and minimizing fault. However, the choice between fuses and circuit breakers are governed by space, maintenance and environmental restraints, and customer maintenance.

Globally, circuit breakers held majority of shares over fuses in 2012. This owes to emergence of smart grids and efforts taken by various governments across the globe to propose new regulations that are expected to have significant impact on energy efficiency. By voltage type, low voltage circuit breakers held majority of share over medium voltage and high voltage circuit breakers due to cost competitiveness offered by them.
