Market Overview

The North American Push Button and Signaling Device Market is expected to witness a CAGR of 4.8% during the forecast period, 2022-2027. Push buttons are extensively used in industries, owing to the comfort and safety provided by them in several industrial and commercial applications.

  • North America is one of the prominent regions in the signaling devices market. It is the major revenue contributor due to increasing automation in manufacturing plants and petrochemical units, which require monitoring systems in hazardous locations.
  • In the United States, automotive manufacturers such as Toyota, Lexus, Ford, Nissan, and BMW are releasing new automobiles with keyless driving facilities. This led to the increasing use of push buttons and signaling devices in the automotive segment of this region.
  • In the F&B industry, signaling devices are extensively used to store food items at a specific temperature and cold storage. In case of some changes or fluctuation, these devices alarm the workers. Thus, they are being used to avoid the spoilage or wastage of the stored foods—for instance, RTD sensors and temperature transmitter solutions for dairy products.
  • However, the strong resolve to automate was also evident in 2020. Honeywell Research reported that over 50% of US companies are open to investing in automation post-COVID-19.​ On the other side, with the shutdown of several companies facing the cash flow crunch, they reported being unable to invest in newer projects. However, allied manufacturing companies producing essential items are expected to create a moderate demand for digital twins in 2021. This factor may reduce the requirement of pushbuttons and sample switches.

Scope of the Report

The push-button switch is a type of control switch appliance frequently used to turn on and off the control circuit. It manually provides control signals to contactors, relays, electromagnetic starters, and other electrical automatic control circuits.

A signaling device is a device that raises an alert in response to a trigger from the control panel. Depending on the signaling device, the trigger can be a sound or visual alarm. Usually, these devices are connected through the control panel.

Key Market Trends

Automotive 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.
  • 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 North America, there has been a significant rise in the accident rates, mainly due to the lack of concentration by drivers while operating various other functions of a vehicle, which has pushed automobile manufacturers to implement steering wheel switches in vehicles for facilitating seamless driving experience.
  • North Fulton County is the international destination for developers testing technology and applications for connected vehicles due to the deployment of equipment that allows cars and traffic signals to talk to each other, pedestrians, cyclists through various signal devices.

The United States to Hold the Significant Market Share

  • According to the United States Energy Information Administration, the electric power sector accounted for over 96% of all utility-scale electricity generation in 2020. Nearly all of it was supplied to other industries. Petroleum, natural gas, and coal accounted for over 79% of the total primary energy output in the United States in 2020. Coal is an effective source to produce electricity. A lot of hazardous situations occur during the production of coal. Installation of safety push alarm buttons can reduce the occurrence of such accidents.
  • 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 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.
  • The developments in the power plant projects are expected to create opportunities for the market. For instance, in May 2020, General Motors signed a power purchase agreement (PPA) with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) for 100 MW of electricity as part of its plan to power its manufacturing facility in Tennessee with 100% renewable energy by 2022.
  • The United Nations of Industrial Development Organization, the global manufacturing output increased by 5.7% in the third quarter of 2021 compared to the previous quarter, following a 17.7% gain in the preceding quarter. While economic paths differ significantly among countries, most of them had solid improvements in industrial production over the preceding year. Such high growth in the manufacturing sector may drive the push button and signaling devices market to decrease the manufacturing time and increase production.
