A solid state relay is a switching relay that is mounted on panel, PCB, or DIN Rail that helps switching and protection in various applications, such as industrial automation, building equipment, industrial OEM, energy and infrastructure, automotive and transportation, medical, and food & beverages. The output voltages of solid state relays include AC, DC, and AC/DC. Solid state relays are available in low, medium, and high current ratings.
The Solid State Relay Market growth is mainly attributed to increasing digitization and automation in the consumer electronics industry; growing modernization of electric vehicles; robust features of SSR, such as high switching frequency and resistance to shock and vibration; and low noise while operating, long operating life, and low maintenance and compact size of SSR. The solid state relay market is expected to reach USD 1.6 billion by 2024 from USD 1.2 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 5.7%. Crydom (US), Omron Corporation (Japan), and Carlo Gavazzi (Switzerland) are the leading players in the solid state relay market.
