Signaling Devices Market Segment Analysis- By Type
Visual Signaling Devices accounted for major share with revenue of $777.2 Million in 2021. This segment is driven by demand for beacons. Beacons are visual signaling devices that are used to signal over a large area. It is also used to indicate warning or draw attention from long distances. Beacons emit visual signals that serve as warnings or information, for example, in the event of device faults or safety issues, or during system commissioning. The various types of beacons considered under the scope of the study includes flashing beacons, strobe beacons, rotating beacons, LED beacons and so on. Rotating beacons incorporate parabolic reflector driven by a motor, which when activated, revolves around an illuminated lamp creating a rotation powerful beam of light. Some of these beacon models are integrated with audible buzzer offering a combined visual and audible signaling device. Rotating beacons are used for industrial process control, machine centres, walk-in testing chambers, fire alarms and security systems, cranes, AGVs, and so on. Strobe beacons are visual signaling devices which are integrated with capacitive discharge converted circuit connected to tube containing xenon gas, which creates bright flash of light on ignition. These lights are majorly used for light and heavy industrial signaling applications and are also used in towers. These visual communication devices are ideal for use in the harsh industrial environments owing to the glass fibre reinforced polyester (GRP) or marine grade and corrosion proof aluminium enclosures. They support wall, ceiling, and floor mounting to ensure that the project is installed in the most appropriate location. With the recent advancement in LED technology incandescent lamps used in various types beacons are being replaced by LED lights which offers excellent product life at a lower cost. This is analysed to drive the market for beacons during 2022-2027
Signaling Devices Market Segment Analysis - By Application
Automobile industry is projected to grow to $209 Million by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 5.1%. Automotive assembly and auto parts manufacturing involves the use of highly automated machines including machine tools, robots, workstation cranes, AVGs, testing chambers and so on in the production line. The workers are exposed to occupational hazards on the factory floor in case of any negligence Audible and visual signalling devices are thereby integrated across the factory floors in robotic work cells, machine centres, AVGs, cranes and various others places to reduce such risks. Apart from this the signalling systems in automotive plants are also used for certain process indications such as, indicate filling of coolant in the central reservoir of the machine centres’ coolant recycling system, issues in the conveyor systems and so on. The shift towards electric vehicles owing to the growing environmental concerns, along with investments towards expansion of production capacities of electric vehicles and related parts is analysed as one of the key factors to assist the automotive signalling devices market during 2021-2023. In September 2021, Ford motor company along with its partner SK innovation, announced its plans to invest $11.4 billion for a new EV and battery production plant in the U.S. In September 2021, Indian government outlaid US$7.81 billion for automobiles and auto components sector in production linked incentive scheme under the department of heavy industries. Such investments by government boosts the market growth of automobile industry which in turn provides market growth of signaling devices market.
