Power Inductors to Suffice the Need for Better Connectivity of Devices

The recent trend of energy storage is reckoned as a measure of growth for power inductor market players. From merely being used as a communication module, the essentiality of smartphones has been mounting for numerous purposes, and with automation taking over manned tasks, the penetration of mobile devices will only heighten in the future. According to the GSM Association, 5G technology is expected to account for 1.2 Bn connections by 2025, which is projected to cover one-third of the world’s population. The availability of high-speed Internet connectivity and rising investments in the development of 5G technology will further boost the sales of electronic devices.

In addition to consumer electronics, the convergence of automotive and semiconductor industries paving the way for the development of futuristic vehicles - autonomous vehicle and electric vehicles - will remain a crucial revenue pocket for the power inductor industry. However, the high demand-to-supply ratio is likely to reflect on the prices of power inductors.

Demand for Smart-sized Devices to Secure Sales Opportunities

Given the mounting demand for power inductors ascending from the consumer electronics, healthcare, automotive, and telecommunication industries for energy storing requirements, product innovation is a key feature of the power inductor market. According to the trends analyzed by the Transparency Market Research (TMR) study, the adoption of surface mount technology is significantly higher than that of through hole technology, on account of the growing trend of miniaturization that requires the integration of power inductors directly on the surfaces of PCBs.

In 2019, surface mount technology is projected to account for ~70% of the sales of power inductors. Since manufacturers of numerous industries are hard-pressed to develop smart-sized devices with high-end features, surface mount technology remains the first choice. However, through hole technology has a hold over certain applications that require significant mechanical bonds.
