Focusing on the long-term impact of COVID-19, market players are adopting mitigation strategies to facilitate continuous flow of operations to restrain revenue loss. While countries are rushing to achieve a COVID-19 breakthrough, the lockdown imposed post pandemic has curbed the movement of materials across the energy and power plants, which would affect the demand for contactors in the coming time. The short term impact of the novel coronavirus has managed to ebb the investment capacity of vendors in the market in light of mounting political turbulence.

Main Boosters and Key Challenges

MRFR experts believe that even with the negative impact of SARS-CoV-2, the contact market can do well, as a result of the rapid economic growth as well as urbanization across India, South Africa (BRICS), Brazil, China and Russia. The demand for contactors worldwide on a steady rise as the increasing urbanization across emerging countries like India and China is driving the demand for electricity.

Key companies are mastering the concept of product launches to boost their growth, by introducing a new and innovative product into the contactor market. Product launch strategies are adopted by these companies to build revenues via expansion of their customer base in the market. To illustrate, Sensata Technologies has launched a new GV210 Series of gas-filled, hermetically sealed contactors that are compact and can be extensively used in applications that carry 150A as well as below, which is between 12 and 900 VDC. This series is considered to be the main contactor for increasingly electrifying uses such as home energy storage, small electric vehicles, forklifts and more.

Furthermore, technological innovations are consistently revitalizing the existing contactors and are getting rid of the issues that are generally faced by traditional contactors within the electrical switching space, which be a huge growth booster in the DC contactor market.
