An automotive relay is an electromechanical switching device wherein coils generate magnetic force to control and operate a high current circuit in vehicles like cars, vans, trucks, and trailers. It is generally installed in infotainment systems, harnesses, and box modules, such as horn, headlight, auxiliary lamp, fan motor, blower motor, rear and front area, engine, body control, powertrain, roof, seat, and door. It increases passenger comfort, supports advanced safety features, and can operate in harsh environments. At present, it is widely available in various forms, ranging from plug-ins and printed circuit boards (PCBs) to nominal coil voltage and high-voltage contactors.

Automotive Relay Market Trends:
The growing demand for luxurious and smart vehicles on account of rapid urbanization and inflating income levels is positively influencing the adoption of the latest infotainment systems in automobiles. This represents one of the key factors positively influencing the demand for automotive relays to provide convenience and enhance the overall driving experience. Moreover, stringent regulations implemented by governments of numerous countries on fuel efficiency are driving the need for vehicle electrification, which, in turn, is contributing to market growth. Apart from this, a significant rise in the number of fatal road accidents is catalyzing the demand for automotive relays in switches for airbags, backup sensing systems, energy-absorbing steering, seat belts, head up display (HUD), and head restraints. Furthermore, the increasing use of off-road vehicles for construction purposes on account of rising investments in infrastructural development is bolstering the market growth. Besides this, the emerging trend of connected and modern vehicles is projected to drive the demand for compact relays in power steering, sunroof, power windows, cruise control, and navigation services.
