The Safety Relays Market was valued at US$505.807 million in 2020 and is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.43% to reach a market size of US$838.575 million in 2027. Safety relays enable the machine to either initiate or execute directions to stop the machine and assist in inspecting and monitoring a safety system. A safety relay is an easy and effective way to comply with safety regulations, ensuring equipment safety and lowering the risk of expensive mishaps or equipment replacement. When connected together, these relays tied to individual functions provide a complete monitoring system for industries. Due to the market's extensive end-use applications across numerous end-use industrial verticals, it is anticipated to expand rapidly. In order to ensure the safety of industrial processes and workers, there are strict rules in place, such as the OSHA and Machinery Directive, which are also increasing market demand. Additionally, rising concerns regarding the safety and security of industry employees are fueling the market's expansion.
