The Automotive Relay Market is projected to grow to USD 21.8 billion by 2027 from USD 14.2 billion in 2019, at a CAGR of 5.5%. The automotive relay market is driven by growing end-user industries such as construction & infrastructure, mining, wind & energy, and heavy engineering.
48V mild hybrid architecture is expected to have significant impact on the relay market
Efforts toward overall weight reduction and improving fuel effeiceny of vehicles have led to the introduction of 48V architecture. 48V architecture increases electrification, which, in turn, will increase the number of relays used in a vehicle. The progress of the 48V system is responsible for changes throughout the electrical system, which is ultimately responsible for a change in applications and design of relays. According to industry experts, 48V architecture requires relays ranging between ~100–200A. Europe is estimated to be the largest market for the high voltage relays, accounting for ~47% of the market share.
