Active Electronic Components (AEC) Market 2018 Global Industry Trends and Forecast Analysis to 2023

Market Highlights:

The global market for active electronic components is set to expand at a striking growth rate during the forecast period (2016-2022), forecasts Market Research Future (MRFR). In simple words, active electronic components control the flow of electricity, with printed circuit boards having at least one of them. Some examples of AEC are transistors, vacuum tubes, silicon-controlled rectifiers (SCRs). In the past few years, technological advancements in electronics and semiconductor industry have increased the number of applications for active electronic components. The demand for electronic components is steadily increasing due to global demand in information and communication technology (ICT) market for smart phones and other wearable devices. Moreover, growing global concerns for energy efficiency have propelled the need for energy efficient active electronic components. Further, medical and military applications are fuelling the demand for display devices among active electronic components. Several display devices in the active electronic components market include microwave tubes, cathode-ray tubes, x-ray tubes, photoelectric tubes and triodes.

However, these driving factors go hand in hand with few restraints, namely fluctuating prices of raw materials that make it hard for manufacturers to cope with the instability. On the other hand, many firms across the globe are seeking new ways to mitigate the risks posed by the instability of the raw materials. On top of that, managing the cost of raw materials is top priority for the market players and the market is ripe with ambitious vendors who are striving to maintain their positions. These factors work wonders for the market and will continue to do so in the coming years. Another factor forcing its way into the market is adoption of Micro-electro-mechanical systems (MEMS). Mobile phones make use of these systems, along with braking systems, emissions control and navigation. Other applications of MEMS include biomedical sensors and drug delivery systems. This trend is quickly catching up speed in the constantly expanding market.
