Need of Solar Projects Drives Worldwide Market of Relays

1024px-Relay_PartsRelays are the switch that is operated electrically. The majority of the relays use electromagnet to run the switch automatically however different principles are also used for operation of relays. These are used to control the circuits with less power signal. In addition, it controls numerous circuits by one individual signal. Relays are used in various applications which include automobiles, telecommunications, military, industrial automation and many more. They are used to avoid electrical circuits from faults, overload and damages.

Worldwide Market Description of Relays:

Growing requirement for relays in smart grids is a significant driver, fuelling the expansion of relays market. Smart grid technologies are escalating rapidly as the requirement for automated power grid is increasing. This is an electricity grid which is used to deliver electricity by means of two way technologies. It helps to enable communication between utility and consumers. Smart grids provide better control over energy cost and more reliable supply of energy for consumers. The relays are used in all the applications of smart grid which enables the protection of equipment from current overloading and fluctuation. Moreover, multi band wireless technology is also an important driver of this market. It functions as an alternative for the macro based station which enables to expand quality of services and coverage in residential market. In addition, demand of solar projects is also one of the major factors behind the growth of relays market globally. The reason behind the increasing need of solar energy is the need for eco-friendly and green energy, i.e. solar energy. High capacity power relays are used for solar application which is likely to cut off safely the high DC voltages.

The Global relays market is facing challenges due to the involvement of local players. Local manufacturers offer products at reasonable costs. They also provide quality products that are similar to those offered by the leading market players. Furthermore, short life span of relays is set to adversely affect the relays market. The relays wear out quickly due to incorrect application and environmental issues. The relays should be capable of meeting higher temperature which are exposed for longer heating times. .Expansion in application areas is expected to create opportunities in the market. Automotive and signal relays are anticipated to offer ample opportunities for the market during the forecast period. Leading players are estimated to expand the application of relays in automotives, microelectronic technology, etc.
