The global automotive relay market is projected to have a fragmented market space due to the presence of several key players. The competition in the automotive relay market is foreseen to grow stiffer in the coming years as the companies try different strategies to capture a higher share of the market. Product launches, mergers, acquisitions, and partnerships are some of the aggressive strategies that are being adopted by the leading firms in the market.

Given below are some of the notable developments in the global automotive relay market:

  • Zettler Inc., the U.S. based industry leader have launched a new product that finds its application in the field of livestock farming and animal feeding. This is expected to enhance the current business portfolio of Zettler Inc. and strengthen its position in the global market.
  • OMRON, another leading player in the industry, demonstrated a broad range of advanced industrial automation solutions for the automobile manufacturing domain. The company showed its solutions at an Engineering show hosted in Chennai, India.
  • Panasonic Corporation recently announced that it will soon start a mass production of Board to FPC connector relay. This new product will use fewer components and will be easier to assemble. The aim of the connector is to make room for efficient designs of automotive LED lights and other applications.
  • In May 2019, Salzer Electronics announced that it is acquiring a majority share in Kaycee Industries Ltd. Salzer will purchase 72.32% stake in Kaycee for around US$2.28 million.

Automotive Relays are widely used in electrical systems used in applications like automotive, trucks, industrial and heavy equipment. A high current circuit can be controlled by a lower current circuit with the help of Automotive Relays. Multiple things can be switched at the same time by one output because of Automotive Relays. Automotive Relays of different sizes and shapes are available which are used in land and sea vehicles. The most common applications where these Automotive Relays are used are the car flashlights, car alarm systems, anti-locking brake systems, car antennas, car stereos, horns, intermittent wipers among other applications.

The Automotive Relay Market is estimated to grow at a moderate CAGR  during the forecast period.

Automotive Relay Market: Drivers & Restraints

With the increase in levels of safety and comfortable driving experience, offered by automotive relays; the demand for automotive relays has increased and expected to grow even more in the forecast period. With the fast pace development of PCBs (Printed Circuit Boards), lighter PCB relays are gradually replacing complicated plug-in devices. This factor is likely to increase the global PCB relay market. Also, PCB relays are expected to remain the dominant segment of the global relay market in the forecast period. Government regulations to include safety components in automobiles to lessen the number of casualties is forecasted to drive the automotive relay market during the forecast period. These devices can be used in safety systems like head restraints, heads-up displays, steering systems, seatbelts, and airbags. With the increase in the use of technologies like GPS, weather, temperature and traffic information, demand for automotive relays is expected to grow at a high CAGR. With the increase in demand for comfort levels, concepts like sunroof control, keyless entry systems, mirror control and infotainment systems have emerged. The increase in the demand for the Hybrid Electric Vehicle (HEV) segment is also a key factor that is likely to drive the growth of global Automotive Market.

In the automotive industry, lack of standardization is a factor that can restrain the growth of Automotive Relay Market. Automotive relays are weaker compared to the conventional plug-in relays when factors like the ability to withstand voltage fluctuations, vibrations, and high temperature, and robustness are considered. Hence, in many applications, especially powertrain systems, conventional plug-in relays are still preferred. This factor may also restrain the growth of Automotive Relay Market in the forecast period.
