The global Electrical Contact Cleaner Market was valued at $561.41 million in 2021, which is expected to grow with a CAGR of 6.45% and reach $1,022.21 million by 2031. The growth in the global electrical contact cleaner market is expected to be driven by rising safety hazards due to the presence of electrical resistance on the contact surfaces caused by dirt, grease, oil, and others. The presence of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in electrical contact cleaners is the key restraining factor in the industry.

Market Lifecycle Stage

The electrical contact cleaner market is in the developing phase. The rising demand for non-ozone-depleting cleaners is expected to provide growth to the market. Further, the rising health concerns and government regulations related to the presence of volatile organic compounds are expected to hamper the growth of the electrical contact cleaner market.


Electrical contact cleaners are used to protect the device from untimely failure during its lifecycle due to the presence of oil, dirt, greases, and others, as these increase the electrical resistance on the contact surface. The current flowing potential can affect the device’s performance and lead to safety hazards. An increase in focus on the prevention of safety hazards brings significant growth opportunities for the electrical contact cleaner market.

Impact of COVID-19

The impact of COVID-19 on the electrical contact cleaners market was moderate. Due to a temporary shutdown of the manufacturing units across different regions of the world, the volume of production declined. Further, the opening of the markets post-COVID-19 and rising operations of the MRO industries are expected to provide significant growth to the market.

Analyst’s View

According to Neha Singh, Sr. Research Associate, BIS Research, “The non-flammable products are witnessing the largest growth in the electrical contact cleaner market as they do not catch fire when the vapour or liquid comes in contact to open flames, sparks, or hot surfaces. Whereas, the rising health problems among the workers due to prolonged exposure to higher levels of chemicals and regulatory norms by the government are expected to affect the flammable product in future.”
