Contactors are the name given to special relays which are used to switch a large amount of electrical power through its contacts. They have multiple contacts and are typically used in the control of electrical motors. Contactors are designed to carry high loads and are equipped with additional safety features. They are used in applications such as motor starters, pumps, cranes, welding, resistance furnaces, lighting, and HVAC. Contactors are capable of breaking current over a wide range of currents, from a few amperes to thousands of amperes. Plus, these electrical components are available in varying sizes and designs.

The need for power is increasing at a torrid pace. Moreover, there is an increasing need for effective and efficient load management, which has increased the usage of contactors. Increasing replacement of air break contacts with vacuum contactors is a key factor which is boosting the growth of the contactors market.  In addition, growing investment in aging transmission and distribution infrastructure is generating demand for contactors. Contactors are even used as magnetic starters, which is adding to the demand within the market. Other factors substantiating the growth of the contactors market include expanding the commercial and industrial sector and up-gradation of electrical and power infrastructure across the globe.

Conversely, the growth of the contactors market is likely to be deterred by high costs associated with contactors and a high level of expertise involved in the designing of contactors.


The global contactors market has been segmented based on voltage and end user.

By voltage, the contactors market has been segmented into low voltage and medium voltage.

By end user, the contactors market has been segmented into building & construction industry, chemicals & petrochemicals industry, foods & beverages industry, metals & mining industry, and other industries.

Regional Analysis

Region-wise, the contactors market has been segmented into North America, Rest-of-the-World (RoW), Europe, and Asia Pacific (APAC).

The APAC is the largest market for contactors. The growth of the market can be attributed to the large-scale industrialization and urbanization in the region, which leads to heightened investment in the power distribution system, which consequently fuels the growth of the market. The emerging economies of the region are outlaying massive amounts on the upgradation of power distribution infrastructure, which is aiding the growth of the market. Moreover, the APAC has established itself as a major manufacturing hub which generates substantial demand for contactors. Furthermore, the mining industry also accounts for considerable demand generation.

North America too is a significant market for contactors. Expanding manufacturing industry is generating demand for contactors. Moreover, the region houses a number of leading market players present who are actively involved in product development, which gives the region leverage over others.

Competitive Landscape

ABB Group (Switzerland), Siemens Ltd. (Germany), L&T Electrical & Automation (India), General Electric Company (USA), Schneider Electric (France), Crompton Greaves Ltd. (India), Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (Japan), Rockwell Automation (USA), Toshiba Corporation (Japan), and Eaton Corporation PLC (Ireland) are the notable players in the global contactors market.

Industry Updates

April 2018 – ABB, a company, operating mainly in robotics, power, heavy electrical equipment and automation technology areas, launched a new ConVac medium voltage vacuum contactor. The new contactor is ideally suited for a wide range of applications and is designed to be a multi-standard solution suitable for IEC62271-106, UL347 and CSA C22.2 standards. The device has a footprint of up to 20 percent smaller than other competitors available in the market.
