Safety door switches are devices that are designed to monitor and control access to doors, ensuring the safety and security of the premises. A variety of factors influence the safety door switches market like growing demand from the construction sector for safety door switches since it assures the security of workers performing high-risk tasks. The installation of safety switches is being driven by the rise in worker accidents in workplaces and factories. The International Labour Organisation (ILO) estimates in 2021 that over 6000 people die from work-related accidents or illnesses per day, or around 2.3 million people per year. Hence, the demand for manufacturing facilities with heavy gear in developing economies is rising. Further, technology development has had a very favourable overall impact on the market for safety door switches.

Moreover, the rising use of automation in potentially hazardous industrial settings, a growing government role in efforts to ensure the safety of business equipment and personnel, and an increasing need for non-contact door switches for improving the stability of doors and guards are also leading to market growth.

Further, in October 2020, the 440G-MZ and the 440G-EZ, two new safety switches from Rockwell Automation that complement their current line of safety switches were launched. Rockwell has also released the 440G-MZ guard locking switch, which may be used with a variety of guard doors, including those that allow full-body access. These guard locking switches have a holding force of 2500N and come in power to lock or power to unlock varieties.

Rising automation and increasing demand in the industrial sector to boost the demand for safety door switches market.

The market for safety door switches is anticipated to be driven by the rapid expansion of buildings and infrastructure development. For instance, the SG-P series safety door switches, created by Panasonic, allow workers to quickly determine whether the doors to all pieces of manufacturing machinery are open or closed. In October 2020, the products were made available. They improve the operating rate and promote worker safety while performing maintenance on equipment at manufacturing facilities. The increase in commercial construction in developing nations during the anticipated timeframe will also increase the demand for safety door switches due to increased demand from the industrial sector. During production site maintenance, purposely disabling interlocking components when opening machine doors can be a major cause of accidents since another person can operate the machine without recognizing the worker. The safety door switches use an RFID technology that only recognizes the actuator associated with the switch to prevent purposeful disabling. The workers' safety is increased by their adherence to the coded levels which has also increased the sales of safety door switches, this has led to an increase in the demand in the industrial sector resulting in increased sales of safety door switches and increased company revenues. For instance, as per the 2023 report of IDEC Corporation, the sales of industrial switches increased from 8,115 million yen in the first quarter of 2022 to 9,274 million yen in the first quarter of 2023.

With growing awareness about workplace safety regulations and the need to provide a secure environment for employees and customers, commercial establishments are increasingly adopting safety measures. Safety door switches play a crucial role in ensuring that access to restricted areas is properly controlled, thereby enhancing workplace safety. Many countries have stringent safety regulations in place to protect workers and customers in commercial buildings. Compliance with these regulations is mandatory, and safety door switches help businesses meet these requirements. Hence, the commercial segment is growing substantially owing to several factors such as an increase in workplace safety and the use of efficient enhanced safety measures which is driving the demand for safety door switches.

Further, rapid urbanization and infrastructure development, such as the construction of new commercial buildings, shopping malls, and office complexes, have created a significant demand for safety door switches. As new establishments are being set up, safety considerations are given priority, leading to the installation of safety door switches right from the construction phase.

Key Developments

  • In 2021, Omron Automation launched D41D which is regarded as a high coded non-contact switch that is not only affordable but also offers an affordable solution for safeguarding machine tools as well as robotic cells.
  • In 2020, Schneider Electric launched a new range of anti-viral safety door switches that are designed to meet the safety requirements of various industrial applications, including the commercial sector. These switches offer enhanced safety features and improved performance.

Geographically, the safety door switches market has been segmented into North America, Europe, Middle East & Africa, Asia-Pacific, and South America region. The Asia Pacific region is expected to grow at a fast pace over the forecast period owing to the increasing use of complex machinery to meet the rising demand for various products. The burgeoning automation industry, rapid urbanization, and expanding manufacturing activities will drive the safety door switch market’s growth in the region.

Furthermore, the US government is making significant investments in infrastructure development, including transportation, construction, and energy sectors. These industries require the use of safety door switches to ensure the safety of workers and prevent accidents, which is fueling the demand for safety door switches in the country. According to the US Census Bureau, a total of US$21,536,609 was spent on construction projects in 2022, compared to US$19,514,493 in 2021.
