This industry research report identifies Adafruit Industries, APEM, C&K Components, E-Switch, and Grayhill as the key vendors in the global navigation switch market. This industry research report also presents a comprehensive analysis of the market by application (aircrafts, gaming consoles, and automobiles) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global navigation switch market

Technavio’s market study identifies the growth in demand for automotive safety systems to be one of the primary growth factors for the navigation switch market. Automobile manufacturers are increasingly focusing on enhancing the safety and security features of the vehicle and are integrating advanced features to increase safety. As customer safety is of prime importance, vendors are integrating safety systems that prevent and protect passengers and vehicles from potentially dangerous situations. Safety systems such as anti-pinch window and driver assistance systems such as radar systems, cameras, and communication devices are  the most common safety systems embedded in automobiles. Our market research analysts estimate that this market will post a revenue of more than USD 1.1 million by 2021.

The introduction of fly-by-wire aircrafts will be one of the key trends contributing towards the growth of the navigation switch market during the next few years. Fly-by-wire technology computerizes vehicle controls and facilitates the electronic transmission of control through a network of actuators placed on the wings and tail of the airship. Fly-by-wire technology (FWB) offers numerous advantages such as reduced maintenance work and aircraft weight, simpler communication with the autopilot systems and automatic flight control systems, and reduced training costs.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The navigation switch market is moderately concentrated due to the presence of limited established players. The vendors in the market compete intensely in terms of availability, price, quality, and size. Few vendors operate in various product lines and cater to multiple industries while some niche players cater to the limited consumer segment and the defense industry. To increase their cost-effectiveness, the vendors are focusing on setting up their manufacturing facilities in APAC.

The leading vendors in the market are

  • Adafruit Industries
  • APEM
  • C&K Components
  • E-Switch
  • Grayhill

Segmentation by application and analysis of the navigation switch market

  • Aircrafts
  • Gaming consoles
  • Automobiles

The automobile industry is highly referring electronic systems due to the safety and comfort that cannot be implemented cost-effectively by using bulkier mechanical components. Navigation switches provide features such as tight product tolerances, acoustical adaptation, haptic-on-demand, environmental and process sealing, and electrical and mechanical interface integration. Though the increased usage of electronics in automobiles will reduce the demand for mechanical components, this segment will continue to account for the major shares of the navigation switch market throughout the next four years.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the navigation switch market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

APAC has the highest number of shipments for smartphones due to the emergence of these mobile devices as a gaming platform. The growing demand for LED TVs and PS-based games will significantly contribute to the growth of the navigation switch market in this region.
