Competitive vendor landscape

According to the research analysis, the global navigation switch market has a limited number of players between whom the competition is intense. Most vendors operate across product lines and offer products to multiple industries, while other vendors deal with more niche segments and provide only a limited number of products to the defense industry. Vendors have started to shift their manufacturing bases to APAC for greater cost-effectiveness and an enhanced response time.

The need to generate a higher revenue and customer base expansion has forced global players to enter alliances with local players to serve the end-users adequately. The companies with better technical and financial resources secure an upper hand by developing innovative products at a faster rate than their competitors and make their products outdated even before they are launched, or their costs are recovered. Therefore, vendors must develop new technologies and stay abreast with emerging technologies that can compete with their product lines in the market.

“Although international players are dominating the market, regional and foreign players with small market shares also have a presence. The international players may strengthen their presence worldwide through acquisitions during the forecast period. It is also forecasted that the improving global economic scenario will fuel market growth, thereby making it an ideal time to launch new products,” says Rohan Joy Thomas, lead embedded systems research analyst from Technavio.
