Industry Dynamics

Growth Drivers

Increasing application of passive electronic components devices and the design of sophisticated electronic components are the factors which propels the growth of the market. The increasing demand for wireless devices such as access points, and high-end broadcasting systems, gateways, routers shall boost the RF & telecommunication segment thus driving the inductor market. Smartphones have witnessed the great success of MEMS gyroscopes owing to their low cost, miniature size, and lightweightness. The younger generation has adopted Google Home, Amazon Echo and Sonos smart devices as the more faster, innovative and easier way to perform everyday activities. Globally, more than 50% of internet users use digital voice assistants which is further anticipated to add to the complexity of electronics, thereby enlarging the demand for inductors. Inductors also play an important role in the healthcare and medical devices industry. Improving macro-sized hospital equipment, point-of-care devices and medical wearable are expected to increase the demand of inductors


The growing interest rates and inflation further decreased consumer spending, which restricted the market’s growth. The use of metals that includes iron, copper and other ferrite substances for the core of inductors creates the production dependency of inductors on the raw material price. Fluctuations in the supply chain and raw material costs can increase the lead time and impact the profit margin of the market vendors that shall hamper the inductor market growth.
