The global membrane switch market is expected to reach USD 13.14 billion by 2025. Membrane switch demand is significantly growing worldwide on account of high application scope coupled with increasing consumption in consumer goods application.
The membrane switch value chain is characterized by manufacturers of membrane switches, suppliers and end-use industries. Growing electronics and semiconductor industries are expected to have a positive impact on the membrane switch market over the forecast period.
Molex, Xymox Technologies, Douglas Corporation, Henkel Electronics Materials, and Nelson Miller are major membrane switch manufacturers in the world. Most of the players have manufacturing facilities in Asia Pacific and the products are then exported globally. These companies have dense supplier and distribution networks, owing to which, raw material procurement, manufacturing and selling of the membrane switches becomes cost effective.
Key factors responsible for the growth of the electronics industry include a rise in consumption of consumer electronics in the emerging markets of China, India, Taiwan, and Thailand amidst new product developments. Incorporation of innovative technologies, such as nanotechnology, in major manufacturing destinations, such as Japan and China, is expected to drive the electronics market in return bolstering the membrane switch industry.
