Reed Switches/Sensors Market Analysis

The automotive reed switches/sensors market is expected to register a CAGR of 5.8%during the forecast period(2020-2025).

  • Technological advancements in the sensor and switch technology have resulted in advanced, miniature, and highly reliable reed switches, acting as a driver for the employment of these switches in the automotive industry.
  • Changing consumer preferences for safer driving experience have also forced the manufacturers to seek better safety sensors, like pedal angle sensors, ABS, and EBS.
  • Reliability and durability are challenges for reed switch users. Reed switches have several inherent disadvantages, including susceptibility to breakage issues during installationand its susceptibility to shock or vibration applications, lower durability, a limited life due to the mechanical nature of the switch, as well as issues due to the contact bounce. When leads on the reed switches are soldered into the circuit, they bend significantly, which can easily crack the glass enclosure of the switch, making the switch unusable. Therefore, reed switch manufacturerscarefully providespecific installation instructions, in order to limit this breakage.

Reed Switches/Sensors Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Reed Switches/Sensors Market according to our research experts:

Safety Systems to Witness High Demand for Reed Switches/Sensors

Reed sensors have been used as an effective passive safety system to alert the driver. Reed sensors for early brake sensing is one of the major and common usages of automotive reed sensors as mechanisms to alert drivers about possible collision or accident, during the application of brakes.

With a rise in the number of accidents at the global level, the demand for safety features has been increasing, especially in the mid-level vehicles. Additionally, with an aim to reduce the number of accidents and enhance consumer’s safety, many countries across the world have introduced safety norms in the automotive industry. For instance,

  • In February 2017, the Indian government made it mandatory for all cars and mini-buses to install anti-lock braking system (ABS) by April 2019.
  • Additionally, in July 2018, Hyundai Motor India Ltd (HMIL) announced its Sriperumbudur-based manufacturing plant to be ready, in order to meet the safety and emission norms well in advance, before its mandatory industry implementation in 2019.
    • All the models to be manufactured in Chennai plant may be equipped to meet the BS-VI technology, along with the car and pedestrian safety norms, as well as airbags, and ABS as a standard.

The above-mentioned trends across the world are likely to drive the demand for reed sensors/switches for vehicle safety systems, during the forecast period.

Automotive Reed Switches/Sensors Market Share

Asia-Pacific Continues to Capture Major Market Share

Reed Switches/Sensors Industry Segmentation

The reed switch is an electrical switch operated by an applied magnetic field. It consists of a pair of contacts on ferrous metal reeds in an airtight glass envelope. The contacts are normally open, making no electrical contact. The switch is actuated (closed) by bringing a magnet near the switch. All areas of typical automotive systems incorporate low-profile, zero power consumption reed switch sensors to help them operate reliably and safely. Reed switch is used to support various automotive applications, such as speedometer, power window operation, infotainment, and in-vehicle navigation centers, side and rearview mirrors, cruise control and power steering, door lock actuation, etc. The aforementioned features of automotive reed switches/sensors have been considered in the scope of the market.
