Today’s vehicles include a complex combination of intelligent electronic systems and integrated mechanical structures. Automotive switch helps driver control literally dozens of variables from temperature to seating angle to power mirror settings with fingertip precision and without taking their eyes off the road. With the expectations of increased convenience, the innovations in switch designs are growing from single-function on-off units to sophisticated combination switches that control turn signals, cruise control, lights, wipers and more.

High demand for switches, demand for convenient models, growth in commercial and passenger vehicles sales, and increasing installation of switches are the main drivers of the automotive switches market. The market for switches in terms of value is projected to grow at a CAGR of 9.8% for the period under consideration. In which, the Asia-Oceania is estimated to be the largest market for automotive switches market, which is majorly contributed by Japan and China in the Asia-Oceania region. North America is estimated to be the second largest market in terms of volume for switches in 2014, following increased production of vehicles in the region.

The button type switches has approximately 33% market share in terms of value, which is the highest compare to the other switches considered in the study. The penetration of touchpad switch is less in the commercial vehicles segment in China & India as compared to the same in western countries such as U.S, Canada, and Germany etc.

The report provides a comprehensive review of market drivers, restraints, opportunities, challenges, and key issues in the global automotive switch market. Apart from quantitative analysis of these markets, the report also covers qualitative aspects such as value chain analysis, PEST analysis, and Porter’s Five Force analysis for the global automotive switches market.
