Aircraft Relays and Contactors Market: Highlights

Relays & contactors are electromechanical switches that help in operating contact terminals and are used to channel the power from one electrical device to another. They control one electrical circuit by opening and closing contacts in other circuits and are useful in protecting the electrical system from arc faults and overloads. Both relays and contactors can be purely electromechanical or can incorporate circuitry for time delay as well as circuit protection. There is a growing interest in integrating sensors into relays and contactors used in the aircraft industry for the enhancement of their overall efficiency.

As per Stratview Research, the global aircraft relays & contactors market is extrapolated to grow at an impressive rate over the next five years to reach an estimated value of US$ 625.7 million in 2025. Increasing aircraft deliveries fueled by rising passenger traffic, increasing aircraft fleet size, and growing trend towards more electric aircraft driven by a shift from hydraulic and pneumatic systems to electrical systems in modern aircraft programs are the major factors escalating the growth of aircraft relays & contactors market.

A noteworthy trend creating a disrupting environment in the market is that the industry is moving away from conventional 28 Vdc to 270 or 540 Vdc systems. Such dynamics in electrical systems are in the wake of the ever-increasing electrical demand while meeting the SWaP requirements of the industry. Such trend has created ample challenges as well as opportunities for relay and contactor manufacturers in suitably designing the product to meet industry demands efficaciously.

The research's findings suggest that commercial aircraft is expected to remain the largest segment of the market during the forecast period. Increasing deliveries owing to rising air passenger traffic, growing demand for more electric aircraft, and increasing aircraft fleet size are the key growth drivers of the segment's market.

Based on the product type, contactors are likely to remain larger segment of the market during the forecast period. They are generally of high power and are very high-value products as compared to relays. Dramatic design changes, especially in developing high-performance contactors with lower dissipation, are leading to the development of smart contactors, addressing additional market requirements of weight and size.

Relays and contactors used in the aircraft industry come in a wide range of ampere ratings, ranging from small ampere ratings to hundreds of amperes. The market is segmented based on ampere type as 0-5 Amp, 5-25 Amp, and more than 25 Amp. Contactors are generally rated to switch higher loads and come in high-ampere rating range, whereas relays are generally having low-ampere rating range. More than 25 Amp is likely to remain the largest segment in the foreseen future.

In terms of regions, North America is projected to remain the largest market for aircraft relays & contactors during the forecast period. The USA is the growth engine of the region's market and has the largest fleet of military aircraft and one of the largest fleets of commercial aircraft in the world. The presence of all major aircraft OEMs, tier players, relay & contactor suppliers, and component manufacturers are primarily driving the aircraft relays & contactors market in the country.

Asia-Pacific is likely to witness the highest growth during the same period, driven by a host of factors including increasing demand for commercial aircraft to support rising passenger traffic, opening of assembly plants of Boeing and Airbus in China, and upcoming indigenous commercial and regional aircraft (COMAC C919 and Mitsubishi MRJ).

Key players in the market are Esterline Technologies Corporation, Safran S.A., Collins Aerospace, Amtek Inc., FIRST SwitchTech, Teledyne Technologies, and TE Connectivity. Formation of long-term contracts, development of highly efficient and lightweight components, and strategic alliances are the key strategies adopted by major players to gain a competitive edge in the market.

In recent years, the market has witnessed gradual consolidation as major players are acquiring other players to strengthen their product portfolio and expand their geographical reach. Some of the foremost mergers & acquisitions that took place in the market include the acquisition of Zodiac Aerospace by Safran S.A in 2018 and the acquisition of aerospace power distribution system and cockpit division of Eaton Corporation by Safran S.A. in 2014. More recently in 2019, TE Connectivity, a leading connectivity and sensor solution provider, acquired Kissling Group, which is a German high-power and high-voltage relays supplier for various industries including aerospace.
