Inductors Market Analysis

The Global Inductors Market is expected to grow at a CAGR of approximately 3.6% over the forecast period (2021-2026). The COVID-19 pandemic has severely affected the global manufacturing sector owing to supply chain disruptions. It has affected various end-users of inductors, cores, and beads. Moreover, the electronics devices are expected to be impacted by the pandemic outbreak as China is one of the major suppliers of raw materials and finished products.

  • The industry is on the brink of facing a reduction in production, disruption in the supply chain, and price fluctuations. The sales of prominent electronic companies are expected to be affected in the near future. Such uncertainties during the pandemic are expected to hinder the growth of the market.
  • The supply chain has witnessed an enormous disruption owing to the COVID-19 being declared as a pandemic. Owing to this, various manufacturers witnessed the closure of their factories, which resulted in supply chain difficulties across the market. For instance, Murata's manufacturing facilities in China, such as Wuxi 1, Wuxi 2, and Shenzen, were closed during the initial days of the pandemic owing to various positive cases at their facilities. However, these facilities were back operational within six weeks. Such developments led to major supply chain issues in the market.
  • However, the growing demand for consumer electronics across the globe, such as smartphones, tablets, portable gaming consoles, laptops, set-top boxes, and others, is the major factor driving the demand for various inductors. The market is also witnessing a boost in demand from applications, which require high reliability in the industrial, aerospace and defense, and medical sectors.
  • Consumer electronics have the highest consumption of inductors. Inductors are used for power supply in various complex circuits, to manage the current, and also as a filter in the circuits to cut off undesirable frequencies.
  • Further, the automotive sector is also proving to be the most prominent option for inductor manufacturers, owing to increasing electronic components in automobiles. The major shift in the trends in the industry also includes the increasing durability of industry-standard interfaces for industrial applications and customization, particularly in the medical, aerospace and defense, and industrial sectors.
  • The demand from the automotive industry during the pandemic is expected to be sluggish, owing to the severe slump in sales and investments in the industry. However, the global government's propensity to adopt environmentally sustainable solutions such as electric vehicles is expected to propel growth beyond 2021. Till the end of the current year, the industry is expected to witness sluggish growth owing to the effects of the pandemic.

Inductors Market Trends

This section covers the major market trends shaping the Inductors Market according to our research experts:

Consumer Electronics and Computing are Expected to Occupy a Significant Market Share

  • Personal computers, laptops, industrial computers, and motherboards are applications of inductors in computing verticals. These inductors are deployed into the power supply circuitry of various computers. The inductors function as energy storage devices in switch-mode power supplies (SMPS) that are used in computers. In these types of power supplies, the output voltage ratio depends upon the charging time of the inductor.
  • The rising standards of living have further contributed to the increase in the sales of consumer electronics. The growing penetration of technology and the internet throughout the developing regions, primarily, has surged consumer interest toward the adoption of advanced digital devices.
  • As consumer electronics is the prominent driver for augmenting the demand for inductors, the growing push to adopt 5G technology across the world is expected to further drive up the demand for various consumer electronics and communication devices across the world, thus positively impacting the market growth. According to GSA, as of January 2021, 413 operators in 131 countries/territories are investing in 5G networks in the form of tests, trials, pilots, planned and actual deployments; of those, 144 operators have launched commercial 5G networks in 61 countries/territories.
  • Smartphone functionality is continuously expanding, from fingerprint verification to controlling and monitoring the manufacturing plant or home security systems. The high-end smartphone uses about 15-25 power inductors. The usage of inductors in these products and the growing consumer electronic devices with increased digitalization are driving the growth of the inductor market.

Asia Pacific is Expected to Witness Significant Growth

  • The Asia Pacific is the largest market for inductors, majorly driven by demand from industrial economies and technologically advanced countries in the region, such as China, Korea, Japan, and India.
  • China stands to be the single largest source of demand for inductor components in the current market scenario, owing to the rapidly growing semiconductor industry and automation in the industrial sector.
  • The growth of smartphones in the region has been exponential, and the number of smartphone users in the countries has been growing rapidly in the past few years. For professional end-use products, the developed nations are expected to be the major driving factor in the market, as the end-users in these regions can pay for premium and novel solutions.
  • This trend is further expected to increase, owing to low penetration in developing countries of the region. Mobile broadband connections are expected to increase to about 72% in the Asia-Pacific region.
  • Additionally, Asia-Pacific is on track to become the world’s largest 5G region by 2025, led by pioneering 5G markets, such as Australia, China, Japan, and South Korea, according to the latest edition of the GSMA’s Mobile Economy report. Launches of commercial 5G networks in these markets are expected to reach 675 million 5G connections by 2025, which is more than half of the global 5G total expected by that point.
