Market Overview

The Europe Push Button and Signaling Device Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period of 2022-2027. The most common method of resetting an emergency stop in European countries is the pull-to-release mechanism. COVID-19 has negatively impacted the market growth. The shutting down of automotive factories and other shop floors has led to a decrease in sales of push buttons. However, factories are starting their activities again.

  • Pilot devices such as push buttons and signaling devices control and monitor industrial equipment and machinery. These devices include several types of pushbuttons, indicating lights, and audible-visual signaling devices. These devices can be used as indicators to spot malfunctions and material shortages across facilities and alert operators to any hazard or fatality in the facility, reducing process downtime. The market for push buttons and signaling devices has expanded, as industrial safety standards for food and beverages, chemicals, and pharmaceuticals and the oil and gas industries have become more stringent.
  • Further, In December 2021, the new Siemens SIRIUS ACT push buttons and signaling devices offered from APS Industrial matched all of these criteria, forming the perfect product line of food and beverage push buttons and signaling devices. The food and beverage business has high cleanliness, toughness, and quality standards. Equipment that does not fulfill these requirements wastes time due to avoidable breakdowns and downtimes. Such product developments may increase the demand for push buttons in this region.
  • Signaling Devices and systems are used to convey simple messages concerning the operation of machinery, manufacturing lines, or individual industrial equipment. It is difficult to imagine a properly functioning industrial plant without appropriate low-level optical and audible signaling devices.
  • The signaling devices are extensively used under STARS Project to develop a universal approach to predict the achievable GNSS performance in a  railway environment,  especially for safety-critical applications within ERTMS  (The  European  Railway  Traffic  Management  System).

Scope of the report

Push buttons are power-controlling switches of a machine or appliance. Usually, they are metal or thermoplastic switches that grant easy access to the user. Push buttons are extensively used in industries, owing to the comfort and safety provided by them in several industrial and commercial applications. Switches and control push-buttons are used for building, and industrial installations are also covered under the scope of the study.

Key Market Trends

Automotive Expected to Witness Significant Market Share

  • The European automotive market is going through a huge transformation to curb the Carbon footprint. EV market has seen huge investment along with it the implementation of push buttons and have also increased for auto-start functions and other automated mechanisms in vehicles.
  • Europe-connected car shipments have been increasing rapidly during the last five years. The top three automotive groups – Volkswagen, PSA, and Renault Nissan Alliance – account for almost half of the connected car shipments in Europe, primarily because they have been leading the passenger car sales in the region.
  • The connected car system is only implemented on passenger cars with embedded connectivity. The vast majority of connected cars will continue to have a 4G-enabled Telematics Control Unit (TCU) by 2025 in Europe. But with 5G network deployment maturing, the share of 4G will start declining after 2022.
  • Across the region, the repercussions of the COVID-19 crisis are immense and unprecedented, as many auto-retail stores have remained closed for a month or more, resulting in the decline in profit by the automotive manufacturer compared to the last two years. It may take years to recover from this plunge in profitability.​

United Kingdom Expected to Witness Significant Market Share

  • Push buttons have been used for implementing keyless access in vehicles. Many automobile companies widely adopt Push-button ignition due to its comfort and reliability in the country.
  • The panel lights and horns are the most commonly used signaling devices in vehicles. Automotive manufacturers also focus on providing additional features, such as video surveillance and strobes. The emergency lighting is also being included in all the newly manufactured vehicles. This is also anticipated to drive the market's growth during the forecast period in the country.
  • Large-scale industries prefer and opt for automation of push-button and signaling devices, primarily to avoid the human error factor. The emergence of industrial control systems, such as SCADA, PLC, and IT control, aided the market growth. The primary factor that drives the demand in the country is the flexibility in control and functionality that devices offer in the industrial space and the enhancement in the safe work environment on the industry floors.
  • In the long run, the demand for renewable energy across the United Kingdom accelerated by the pandemic is also expected to boost the market's growth. However, the uncertainty in the supply chain and demand brought by the short-term repercussions is expected to stall the market's growth as the pandemic impacted all end-user industries.
