Reed Switch Market: Advanced Technologies & Growth Opportunities in Global Industry

Press Release   •   Apr 13, 2018 08:19 EDT

The reed switch is an electrical switch operated by an applied magnetic field. It contains a pair (or more) of magnetizable, flexible, metal reeds whose end portions are separated by a small gap. The reeds are hermetically sealed in opposite ends of a tubular glass envelope. The two ferrous materials inside the switch pull together when exposed to a magnetic field and hence completing the circuit. When the magnetic field is removed, the reeds separate and the switch opens. This makes for a great non-contact switch. These switches are designed with a high degree of reliability. The ferrous metal contacts are sealed in an environment at a predetermined pressure or vacuum, specifically chosen for their intended areas of application. Various manufacturers provides application specific reed switches that can be used in low temperature environments. Reed switches can be used as an effective passive safety system suited to alert driver.

With the evolution of internet of things (IoT), industrial/home automation and Increase usage for automotive safety solutions around the globe, especially in the developed and developing economies are some of the primary factors driving the growth of the global reed switch market during the forecast period. However, some functional issues associated with reed switches is restraining the growth of the reed switch market. At present, various emerging technology and its applications are requiring more advanced reed switch, and high demand for smaller, better and durable switches is expected to create ample opportunities for reed switch manufacturers to come up with more advanced low power consumption reed switches.

Market Segmentation

The global reed switch market is segmented on the basis of type, application, end-use and region. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into Form A (SPST), Form B (SPST), Form C (SPDT), and Latch type. Form A SPST (Single Pole, Single Throw) are normal open reed switch that contacts close in the presence of a magnetic field. However, Form B SPST are closed reed switch that contacts open in the presence of a magnetic field. Form C SPDT (Single pole, double throw) are referred as Break-before-make reed, these are normally closed contact opens and then the open contact closes.
