Its main function is to interrupt or break the flow of current by getting a metal strip or metal wire within the fuse and is melted when the current gets overloaded. The major reason for excess current is generally device failure, short circuit and overload. Nowadays hybrid in-plugged technology is being used in electric cars. It has its major applicability in power transformers, electrical appliances, electrical cabling in home, mobile phones, motor starters, laptops, power chargers, cameras, scanners, printers, automobiles, electronic devices and gaming.
South America fuse market is projected to register a CAGR of 5.3% in the forecast period of 2019 to 2026.
