Multipurpose Ability, More Reliability of Rocker Switches Grow Popular Worldwide

Rocker switches are used in various applications, including surge protectors, display monitors, computer power supplies, and other devices. A rocker switch with autonomous circuitry can have a light activated on the front of the switch in both the on and off positions, which allows the switch to be found easily in the dark. With dependent circuitry, the light is activated only when the switch is on. The continuous developments in the design for the rocker switch are expected to increase the demand for the global rocker switch market during the forecast period.

The rocker switches are used for their multi-pole and multi-position functionality. The market holds options such as round shape, narrow width, strong construction, bevelled frames, and recessed switch guards to limit accidental actuation, splash-proof rubber boots, and sub miniature sizes for a space-saving small footprint, making rocker switch a more reliable choice for consumers. Moreover, manufacturers operating in the automobile sector are also substituting traditional gear sticks with rocker switches. The rising demand for commercial vehicles is also driving the demand for the rocker switch market in the upcoming future.

Suspension of Global Trade, Supply Chain Affected Rocker Switch Production during COVID-19 Pandemic

The outbreak of the coronavirus disease of 2019 (COVID-19) has led to lockdowns in major countries of the world. Several sectors including automotive, aviation, consumer electronics, chemical, pharmaceuticals, and oil & gas have been largely affected by stringent regulations implemented to contain the spread of the virus. Along with these sectors, end-use industries of the rocker switches, including aerospace, HVAC, and instrumentation also witnessed a fall in the demand for rocker switches, thus impacting the global market negatively. Moreover, the impact is expected to take a while to recover, owing to shortage of electronic equipment and instrument services, hampering of production facilities and supply chains, and decreasing stock market prices.

The key players in the rocker switch market have had to adjust their production planning and operations, as COVID-19 shifts demand for major switch applications. Regionally, the rocker switch market is affected the most in Asia Pacific countries including China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan, being the world production center over the past two to three decades. Furthermore, labor shortages in COVID-19 also affected production and testing plants, which hampered the growth rate for the global rocker switch market. However, with the pandemic in its end phase in major nations, industries are expected to increase production to meet the demand.

Asia Pacific to Lead Rocker Switch Market with Largest Share

Most industrial switch systems require a space where communications occur between the human and the machine. This is usually known as an operator interface, and switches form a vital component in these areas, allowing the operator to turn components on and off quickly. However, if the switches in an operator interface are not optimally chosen, it can negatively affect the functionality of the machinery. Thus, rocker switches are among the most used switches with many of them providing a positive click signal to let the user know the switch has changed position successfully. Rocker switches are popular for use in gadgets such as computer printers, UPS, SMPS, etc. Rocker switches can be engaged or disengaged with a small force due to which it is becoming popular in most consumer electronics applications. This factor is also driving the rocker switch market.

Growing presence of end users and key players and rapid technological advancements in North America are expected to increase the region's market share in the near future. In addition, rise in investments by governments in electric vehicle infrastructure and increase in usage of rocker switches in automotive applications in Asia Pacific are ensuring a steady demand in the region. Overall, the global rocker switch market is estimated to exceed the value of US$ 11.4 Bn by 2031, expanding at a CAGR of 3.4% during the forecast period.
