Market Overview

The market was valued at USD 4572.85 million in 2020 and it is expected to reach a value of USD 5607.60 million by 2025, at a CAGR of 3.5%, over the forecast period (2021-2026). The growth of the inductor market is experiencing steady growth, due to the increasing number of product launches and developments in the consumer electronics sector, demand for passive electronic components, use of inductors in automotive electronics, and adoption of smart grids.

  • 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.
  • Automotive inductors are witnessing frequent product launches, and the manufacturers are enhancing their existing product lineup so that they are suitable for automotive applications. During September and October 2019 Vishay Intertechnology Inc., TDK, and Kemtet introduced several new inductors exclusively for automotive applications.

Key Market Trends

Computing and Consumer Electronic are Expected to Occupy the Largest 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.
  • There is a steady rise in focus on innovative consumer electronics that are connected. The advancements in technology, such as the development of 2-in-1 inductor array products resulting in the productive use of limited circuit space in handheld devices, provides users with multiple product solutions.
  • 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

  • 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. 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.

Competitive Landscape

The inductor market's competitive landscape has also undergone a significant transformation over the past few years. The ensuing opportunities have resulted in intense competition. The market appears to be fragmented. There are a significant number of inductor manufacturers vying for the increasing market share. As a result, OEMs are enjoying significant buying power with the leverage to choose an inductor manufacturer that best fits their business model and, more importantly, one that can adequately balance quality and price.

  • April 2019: Vishay Intertechnology Inc. expanded its offering of Automotive Grade IHLP low profile, high current inductors with a new device in the 5050 case size. The AEC-Q200 qualified device released is optimized for energy storage in DC/DC converters up to 2 MHz.
  • Feb 2019 - TDK Corporation launched a thin-film metal power inductor with a connection to a 12V car battery. The device has the ability to withstand severe temperature environments with an operating temperature range of -55 °C to +150 °C (including increase by self-heating) and is suited for automotive power circuits.
