All fuses/circuit breakers protect the wiring between the switch and the device. The wire should be sized to support the device and distance (voltage drop). Once this has been done, you select an appropriate fuse/circuit breaker for the wire size. There are a bunch of charts available online to help with this (here is a quick link - American Wire Gauge table and AWG Electrical Current Load Limits with skin depth frequencies).
