Our businesses

Our broad array of products can be found in industries all over the world, protecting people and assets while improving productivity and efficiency. We also help customers meet stringent code and regulatory requirements with our highly engineered products. And our large installed base of equipment around the world creates opportunities for aftermarket sales and services. 


We help customers meet the demands of the world’s ever-growing need for power by improving efficiency and uptime, meeting regulatory requirements and protecting people and equipment. Our electrical products help utilities generate, transmit and distribute power. And once that power is distributed, we help people use it efficiently and safely, whether in a building, industrial facility, data centre or home. Our solutions range from circuit breakers to switchgear to machine controls. We offer a full portfolio of back-up power and surge protection, providing maximum uptime and guarding against power surges or outages. In hazardous environments, we help protect people and property with explosion-proof enclosures, signalling, notification and surveillance systems. Our comprehensive portfolio of end-to-end electrical solutions is complemented by our full-scale engineering and support services.

Our customers span a wide range of markets, including residential, commercial and institutional buildings, industrial facilities, utilities, data centres, oil and gas, mining and machine original equipment manufacturers (OEMs).

As consumers and major vehicle manufacturers incorporate electric vehicles into their transportation offerings, both Eaton and the industry are well-positioned for strong growth opportunities in electrical vehicle platforms over the next 10 to 20 years. 

eMobility is the perfect intersection of our industry knowledge and electrical technology expertise. Launched in early 2018, the eMobility segment combines elements of our Electrical and Vehicle businesses to deliver electric-vehicle products to passenger car, commercial vehicle and off-highway OEMs. eMobility focuses on three primary areas for both automotive and commercial vehicle customers: intelligent power electronics, power systems, and advanced power distribution and circuit protection. While eMobility may be a new business to Eaton, we have decades of experience in managing power and developing commercial vehicle hybrid systems. With competencies in areas that car manufacturers consider critical in the electrical vehicle market, we are uniquely positioned to solve complex electrical challenges.

In this fast-growing market, we currently see potential revenue opportunities for the business between $2 billion to $4 billion by 2030.


Key growth drivers:

  • Knowledge of the complex vehicle development and manufacturing process, along with existing robust relationships with global OEMs
  • Market growth potential
  • Increasing demand for electric powertrains in passenger cars, buses and commercial vehicles
  • Helping OEMs and municipalities meet sustainability goals
