Follow us on LinkedIn – Electronic components have played a significant role in the evolution of several path-breaking technologies that have changed the world in the 21st century. For instance, telephones and computers have revolutionized the world of communications and information technology respectively. The role of electronic components in driving this technology driven world is significant, given their extensive use in a wide range of electronic applications right from traditional computers, telephones, televisions and audio players to more advanced electronic gadgets such as mobile computing devices, mobile phones, LCDs, LEDs, DVD/Blu-Ray players, portable media players, video game consoles, home-theater systems, microwaves and printers among others. As key building blocks of electronic circuitry used in a range of electronic devices, electronic components represent the backbone of the electronics sector.

The market continues to be driven by demand from major downstream industry segments such as telecommunications, computing and consumer appliances, which are the most prolific users of these components. However in recent years, newer application areas such as automotive electronics, medical device electronics, defense and aerospace electronics, including state-of-the-art weaponry and industrial equipment, among others, have emerged to spearhead growth. Product and service innovations and developments in end-use markets create significant opportunities for growth. Digitalization of consumer entertainment has led to rapid proliferation of digital media devices such as MP3 players, media servers, DVD and Blu-Ray players, manufacturing of which necessitates the use of electronic components. Electronic component manufacturing continues to become increasingly complex, intricate and dynamic due to the ever-changing technology trends in intelligent electronics. Long-term growth in the market particularly depends on incremental technology developments and customization based on unique application requirements.

Growing adoption of PCs, ultrabooks, smartphones, and other consumer electronic devices is creating demand for passive electronic components. Demand for passive components is primarily driven by cheaper, smaller and high quality parts in a range of electronic devices. Advanced technological features, higher performance levels, greater frequencies and capability in providing increased densities are stimulating demand for passive components. Given the rapid demand for complex and advanced electronic components, manufacturers need to stay focused on end-user requirements in order to trigger sales growth. The miniaturization trend sweeping through the electronic devices market is generating strong demand for advanced passive components with small form factors such as case sized capacitors.
