Relays are electric switches which are used as electromagnets to mechanically work as a switch. Relays’ are widely used due to the need of disconnecting a powering circuit by separating the connected contacts. These days automotive relays are registering an exponential demand for automobile systems of electrical vehicles.The use of relay’s allows switching between circuits of automotive, industrial,trucks, and heavy equipment. The relay operation is carried out by a high current circuit controlled by a low current circuit with the assistance of the automotive relays. The automotive relay switches between the process that are related to single output. The automotive relay is able to operate from different sizes & shapes used in sea and land vehicles. The relays are the most commonly used for car flashlights, anti-locking brake systems, car alarm systems, car antennas, horns, car stereos, intermittent wipers among other applications.
According to study, “Global Automotive Relay Market Size Study, by Product (PCB, Plug in and High Voltage Relay) Vehicle type (Commercial, Passenger and electric), By Application (HVAC, Engine, Lights, Others) and Regional (North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Rest of the World) Forecasts, 2017-2025 (USD Billion/Million)” the other key operating companies currently operating in the global automotive relay market are Coto Technology,Delphi Automotive LLP, Deltrol Controls, Mitsuba Corp., American Zettler Inc., Hella KGaAHueck & Co. (HELLA), Nidec Corp., SHARP Corp., IDEC Corporation,Denso Corp., TE Connectivity Ltd., ABB Ltd., AISTOM, Omron Corporation, Eaton Corp., Siemens AG, Robert Bosch GmbH, NEC Corporation,Mouser Electronics, Inc., American Zettler,Fujitsu Ltd., NEC Corp., Johnson Electric, Panasonic Corporation, Littelfuse Inc.
Based on the type of the product global automotive relay market is segmented into plug-in relay, Printed Circuit Board (PCB)relay, time relay, protective relay, signal relay and high voltage relay or screw mounted relay. Based on the vehicle type, market is segmented into passenger, commercial and electric vehicle. Based on the load &application, market is segmented into door lock, engine management module, power seat, motor & pumps, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC), fuel injection, lights or lamps and others (sunroof, power window and ABS control).
The global automotive relay market is driven by the riseof real estate developments, followed by growing industrialization, increasing trends toward vehicle electrification, fuel efficiency standards, safety, and strict emission norms. Additionally, the energy saving and environmental friendliness are some of the key characteristics expected to drive the market over the forecasted period. Apart from the major benefits some of the other key restraints associated are dominance of local manufacturers followed by the unavailability of the standard relay design and connected with the smart junction boxes & smart fuse boxes for the autonomous cars. Moreover, some of the other key opportunities includes the impact of 48V architecture with the demand of high switching capacity relays for electric or the hybrid power trains.The systems of electronics stability control, advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS), brake-by-wire systems, electronic steering systems, and airbags are expected to gain the same across the world, due to their safety & comfort benefits. In addition, strict safety guidelines are expected to utilize substantial pressure on Tier-1 suppliers and the OEMs to design the enhanced safety systems for automobiles. It is expected that the global automotive relay market to reach at US $19.5 billion, by 2025.
