The hottest solid state relay market in China is h

  • Detail

China's solid-state relay market is heating up, and the competition between international and local suppliers is intensifying.

as the demand for switches from Chinese communication and computer equipment manufacturers recovers, relay suppliers have increased the output of solid-state relays (SSRs) to meet the growing market demand. "The demand of automotive electronics, telecommunications and Avionics industries will promote the recovery of China's SSR market in 2003." Danielyang, an analyst at iSuppli, a market research company, pointed out that he expected the SSR market in China to grow at an average annual growth rate of 20% in terms of output value and output in the next two years. By 2005, SSR's sales will account for 10% of the total relay market in China

the recovery of the market has prompted leading international SSR suppliers to continue to expand their business in China, because this practice can not only meet the growing customer demand in the Chinese market, but also reduce their manufacturing costs. Panasonic denko automation control (Xiamen) Co., Ltd. was established by Panasonic electric in Xiamen last year to sell relay products in China. Amrkhalil, a product expert at Aromat, a subsidiary of Panasonic electric, said: "precision spring fatigue testing machines in the telecommunications field are mainly used for tension springs, compression springs, disc springs, tower springs, leaf springs, snap springs, leaf springs, composite springs, gas springs, mold springs, special-shaped springs, shock absorbers and other precision springs, as well as the durability, fatigue experiments and testing of a variety of precision small springs. The expansion has created a market for SSR, although the scale is still small."

in addition to Panasonic electric, Omron of Japan has also established Omron electronic components (Shenzhen) Co., Ltd. in Shenzhen, which is responsible for selling the company's SSR and other relay products. In the past four years, Tyco Electronics, another famous relay manufacturer, has also established a joint venture with Shenzhen Branch of China Electronics Import and Export Corporation, called Shenzhen Original Electronics Co., Ltd. (OEG)

Yang also pointed out that at present, there are 280 relay manufacturers in China, most of which are producing low-cost electromechanical relays, but some manufacturers are expanding the production scale of SSR, including Xiamen Hongfa electroacoustic Co., Ltd., Beijing ximanton Automation Research Institute and Su 1 general engineering, which cooperate with the contractor in the form of contracting labor and materials.

the price advantage seemed to be a magic weapon for Chinese relay suppliers to make profits in the past, but now it seems that this advantage is gradually losing. Yang, for example, said that the price of Omron's g3mbssr was more than US $1; In contrast, similar products of Xiamen Hongfa electroacoustic Co., Ltd. are only 10% cheaper

therefore, local relay suppliers in China gradually pay attention to product quality, constantly improve the switching speed of relays, the protection power, the experimental steps of Vicat softening point testing machine, mechanical strength, and reduce leakage current to win the attention of communication and computer manufacturers

nevertheless, many international relay manufacturers do not believe that Chinese suppliers pose a direct threat to themselves. They believe that Chinese manufacturers are relatively backward in quality control and customer service. "Chinese suppliers cannot provide strong support for their products." Khalil said, "we test 100% of our products, but Chinese suppliers can't do this. They have taken many cost cutting measures."

but not all relay suppliers think so. Ericsteinback, the sales director of Magnecraft struts Dunn company in the United States, believes that the products manufactured by Chinese joint venture partners can be completely comparable to the products of international manufacturers
