Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Automotive Switches Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global automotive switches market: ALPS ELECTRIC, Continental, Delphi Automotive, Panasonic, and Robert Bosch

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Eaton, Global Market Group, HELLA, Honeywell International, OMRON, TOKAIRIKA, and ZF Friedrichshafen.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Increasing demand for Illuminated automotive switches. The demand for illumination switches is increasing because of their compactness and miniaturization. Illuminated automotive switches save space and electricity by combining indicator light and its switch into one instead of having them separately. Illuminated switches are used to indicate a specific function after they are actuated. It is easy for users to identify and locate the switches during low-light conditions. The illumination feature is available in various types of automotive switches including push-button switches, rocker switches, rotary switches, and toggle switches. These switches are widely used in several applications because of their compactness.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is High demand for switches from automakers. The demand for safety systems is rising in the automotive industry, resulting in the increased adoption of safety sensors and switches. The primary drivers of the global automotive switches market involve the increasing safety concern and the transition of the automotive industry toward advanced technologies. Due to the dynamic business environment and changing consumer preferences, automotive manufacturers offer advanced safety features in their vehicles. The growing demand for passenger cars and commercial vehicles is contributing to the growth of the global automotive switches market.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Increasing introduction of gesture recognition system. The introduction of sensor-based systems such as automotive gesture recognition systems is gaining popularity in the automotive industry. This system offers comfort and convenience to drivers in terms of controlling in-vehicle system functions. The automotive gesture recognition system is used for performing actions such as navigating infotainment options of vehicles, adjusting overhead lighting or ambient temperature, opening or closing doors and windows, and answering or rejecting phone calls. Gestures are processed and recognized using gesture recognition algorithm by sensor-based systems to control the onboard systems instead of using physical buttons or touch pads/screens and haptics.
