PCB relays are speculated to drive the automotive relay market under the review period.

Printed circuit board (PCB) relays to lead the relay types in ICE vehicles globally. The benefits of PCB relays are compact, lower weight, and high power rating capacity, which aligns with the OEM requirement. PCB relays can switch current up to 200A; hence, these relays find applications for most automotive features where the relay needs to be small enough to fit in limited space.

Some applications of PCB relays in vehicles are door locks, power windows, sunroofs, headlamps, and tail lights, among others. Hence, compact size, higher rating, and smaller package than plug-in relays make them preferable among all other types of relays, and with growing demand for applications mentioned above in the vehicles would further drive the demand for PCB relays in coming years.

Intelligent Park Assist is expected to be the rapidly growing automotive relay application during the forecast period.

The Intelligent Park Assist (IPA) is one of the premium comfort features aiding parking in modern vehicles. This technology has been introduced as vehicles on the road are constantly growing, limiting the availability of convenient parking spaces in congested urban areas.

Hence, premium automakers are incorporating IPA to automatically and conveniently park their vehicles. Several manufacturers, such as Toyota, BMW, Lexus, Volkswagen, and Tesla, offer this system in their passenger car models. The relays are used for intelligent park assist, frequent switching operations, and signal communications.

Hence, offering IPA technologies is currently limited to select premium models. With rising demand for mid- and premium vehicles, especially in Europe and North America, the adoption of intelligent park assist is expected to grow as simultaneously demand automotive relays in the future.

North America is anticipated to be the second-largest automotive relay market by 2027.

According to the publisher's analysis, North America is projected to be the second-largest market for automotive relays by 2027. The region has a higher demand for passenger vehicles, particularly for mid-range & premium SUVs and pickup trucks, due to strong buying power, high per capita income, improved standard of living, and consumers' interest in off-roading purposes.

According to the publisher's analysis, production share of mid-range and premium passenger vehicles in North America, stood at more than 80% in 2021. These vehicles are installed with more electronic components for advanced safety and comfort features such as automatic air conditioning, start-stop, EPS, heated steering and seats, traction control, adaptive cruise control, and so on. With increasing premium car sales, the region's demand for automotive relays for various applications would also grow.

Further, increasing industrialization, growing logistic business, and e-commerce industry have created a significant demand for heavy truck production and sales in the US. This would subsequently create the demand for automotive relays for basic functions such as fuel pumps, headlights and tail lamps, steering, wiper, indicators, etc. In addition, electric and hybrid vehicles have also recently seen a considerable adoption rate in North America. All these factors are expected to drive the market of automotive relays in the North American region
