The Global Lightning Arrester Market size is anticipated to exceed USD 1498 Million by 2033, growing at a CAGR of 5.96% from 2023 to 2033.
A lightning arrester is a device used in electric power and telecommunications systems to protect the system's insulation and conductors from lightning damage. It is also referred to as a lightning diverter. The typical lightning arrester has two terminals: high voltage and ground. When a lightning surge (or switching very similar surge) travels down the power line to the arrester, the current is diverted through the arrester and, in most cases, to Earth. A lightning arrester protects an electric power and telecommunications system from lightning's high voltage surge. It prevents current from flowing to the ground until the system voltage reaches a normal level, and a lightning arrester can be a spark gap or a block of semiconducting material such as silicon carbide or zinc oxide. The global lightning arrester market is rapidly expanding and is expected to continue its upward trend in the coming years. Lightning arresters, also known as surge arresters or lightning surge protectors, are critical devices that protect electrical systems and equipment from the destructive effects of lightning strikes. They are intended to direct excess electrical energy generated by lightning strikes to the ground, preventing it from entering and damaging sensitive electronic devices and infrastructure.

Demand for electric appliances and housewares is rising, increasing the need for protective systems, which is expected to drive the lightning arrester market. Lightning arresters are installed on devices that are sensitive to high voltage. Furthermore, arresters are usually installed near an electrical panel or a generator. When dangerous lightning strikes, the arrester helps to divert it to the ground, where it can diffuse without causing harm. The ongoing industrial development and urban expansion have resulted in a significant increase in the installation of electrical equipment and infrastructure, driving up demand for lightning arresters to protect these assets. In addition, companies are investing in expanding their product portfolios and distribution networks, which is driving the market. Companies have adopted strategies such as product development, mergers and acquisitions, and joint ventures to meet the increasing global demand for lightning arresters, which is boosting the market.
The high initial installation costs are expected to hamper market growth. This installation represents a significant barrier to small businesses. Lightning arresters' maintenance costs are also hamper the lightning arrester market growth. Growing competition and a high need to comply with strict regulations and changing standards around the world are expected to limit the market. Certain regions, particularly developing economies, are unaware of the importance of lightning protection systems. This results in low adoption rates and restricted market growth opportunities.
The global lightning arrester market share is classified into type, rating, application, and end-user.
- The metal oxide varistor segment is expected to grow fastest in the global lightning arrester market during the forecast period.
The global lightning arrester market is categorized by type into horn gap, rod gap, sphere, electrolyte, metal oxide varistor, and others. Among these, the metal oxide varistor segment is expected to grow fastest in the global lightning arrester market during the forecast period. A MOV consists of a piece of metal oxide connected to the power and grounding lines through a pair of semiconductors. It has applications in circuits. Under normal system operating conditions, that is, when there is no surge and the system is operating at the rated voltage, the surge arrester will have a high resistance (almost infinite) to earth, resulting in an open circuit. As a consequence, the switching surge is safely diverted to the earth, and the arrester absorbs the surge's energy. Again, the system operates at its normal rated voltage, and the surge arrester's resistive property improves, causing it to act as an open circuit. Under normal operating conditions, the system voltage remains unaffected. Furthermore, it has a high degree of nonlinearity in arrester resistance, eliminates the need for a spark gap, and has a quick response to steep discharge current.
- The above 110 KV segment is expected to grow at the highest pace in the global lightning arrester market during the forecast period.
Based on the rating, the global lightning arrester market is divided into Below 35 KV, 35-110 KV, and above 110 KV. Among these, the above 110 KV segment is expected to grow at the highest pace in the global lightning arrester market during the forecast period. The increasing number of distributional networks to reduce power outages, as well as rising residential electricity demand, are driving segmental growth.
