Increasing dependency on non-oil revenues is one of the main objectives of the current Saudi Arabian government. As per this objective, initiatives are underway to develop the country's social infrastructure including education, hospitals, offices and retail spaces along with construction of a plethora of transportation projects. Stimulus package worth $19 billion dollars has been announced by the government in an attempt to strengthen the country's private sector. As the economy of Saudi Arabia continues to strengthen, the demand for electrical devices such as circuit breakers is expected to witness substantial growth during the forecast period. However, as a result of the subdued government spending after 2014, crude oil price crash can still be felt as many projects went on hold or were shelved in 2017, thereby putting an upper limit on the growth of the circuit breaker market.
According to 6Wresearch, Saudi Arabia Circuit Breaker market revenues are projected to grow at a CAGR of 5.9% during 2018-24. Projects such as $22.5 billion worth Riyadh Metro Project and $7 billion Knowledge Economic City Project are slated for completion in the next decade and would contribute in improving the infrastructure and transportation sectors of the country. Government initiatives such as the Saudi Vision 2030 and the National Transformation Plan 2020 would help boost Saudi Arabia's residential, commercial and power utilities sectors with the development of new houses, hotels, economic cities, entertainment cities and power plants which would subsequently increase the demand for circuit breakers during the forecast period.
