The multiple protection functions of today’s protection relays requires a new level of sophisticated test hardware and software to completely analyze the operation of the unit in a “real life” situation. Every facet of relay testing can be handled with the comprehensive line of relay test equipment from different company.

The implementation of smart power grids is one of the top priorities for most countries. It is spreading in developing economies at a rapid rate, and is already being implemented in several parts of developed countries. The scope of relays in an automated power grid is massive at they can help to control all communication and distribution between the consumer and the supplier. This forms the key driver for all relay manufacturers across the globe. This market is facing problem as the relays wear out quickly. Relays that are manufactured today wear out quickly due to several reasons that include improper applications, environmental and issues among others. Moreover, they are likely to get damage very quickly due to improper connection. Also, due to heat generation the coils of the circuit get damaged. Further, more involvement of local players into the market is also affecting the demand in the relays. This is due to the better quality products provided by the local manufacturers that are similar to those products provided by the market leaders. The major opportunity in this market is the development in the existing application areas. Automotive and signal relays are expected to create ample opportunities in the relays market. Moreover, the companies are focusing more on introducing use of environment friendly materials to manufacture relays. For instance, they are introducing products that are lead and cadmium free, as these materials are hazardous for the environment. Thus, introduction of these products is expected to create ample opportunities in the market.

The global relay tester market is segmented on the basis of type, component, application, industry vertical, and geographical region. On the basis of type, the market is segmented into three phase, single phase, five phase and multiple phase.
