The future market situation of chip resistors
Nowadays, with the rapid development of modern science and technology, electronic products have been transformed into smaller and smaller, relatively speaking, electronic components have also become smaller, and the same is true of chip resistors.
In order to comply with the future development direction, major manufacturers continue to improve the manufacturing process of chip resistors, expand production capacity, and meet the growing market demand. The market demand for small chip resistors is constantly growing, and resistor manufacturers continue to increase the added value of their products, which provides room for growth of small chip resistors. Therefore, in the spot market, the market share of small chip resistor products is on the rise. In controlling production costs, Chinese local manufacturers have unique advantages.
Chip resistors are one of the three main passive components, with many types and wide applications. With the rapid development of the current mobile communication industry, the demand from the smartphone and tablet computer markets has become the main source of growth in the inductor industry. The number of installations is also increasing, thereby driving the overall growth of the chip inductor market. In addition, the markets for home appliances (LCD TVs, etc.), wireless communications (5G), cloud storage devices, security monitoring, automotive electronics, and LED lighting are also expected to continue to improve in recent years. These are all high-volume chip resistors. The product industry has also prompted resistors to enter a period of rapid update.
Small chip resistors are widely used in mobile phones, digital set-top boxes, Bluetooth headsets, LCD TVs, automotive electronics, industrial control and other fields, and there is a huge market potential. With the continuous segmentation of the market, there are gradually a variety of small resistors for specific application areas.
At present, China's chip resistors account for 85% of the total output of resistors. It can be foreseen that in the next few years, chip resistors will continue to lead the production of local resistors in China. Driven by the demand for chip resistors in the industries of mobile communications, computers and peripherals, consumer digital and automotive electronics, local Chinese suppliers are very optimistic about these types of resistors, especially for portable electronic devices. The prospect of chemical resistance is promising.
Domestic chip resistors have different sizes. 0603 chip resistors used in consumer electronics, IT and communication products are currently the main force of local resistors in China. The trend of miniaturization will stimulate the production of smaller size chip resistors such as 0402. . In view of such market demand, manufacturers expect that the production of large-sized resistors such as 0603, 0805, and 1206 will decline in the next few months.
0402 chip resistors are used more and more frequently in electronic products such as mobile phones, digital cameras, camcorders, portable GPS devices and notebook computers. With the increasing miniaturization of digital devices such as mobile phones, manufacturers believe that 80% of the chip resistors used in these electronic products are 0402 type.
