Several renewable energy fixtures consist of devices like inverters, solar panels, and turbines. These devices are further made up of active electronic components such as photo-transistors and photodiodes.
With the advent of IoT and smart devices, demand for flexible and miniaturized electronic component has risen significantly over the past few years. Further, the fuelling demand for smartphones and other smart handheld devices such as tablets and PDAs are projected to propel the global active electronic components demand prominently during the forecast period.
Product Type Insights
Semiconductor devices held nearly half of the revenue share in the global active electronic components market in the year 2019 and analyzed to witness robust growth during the forecast period. The growth of the segment is mainly due to on-going product innovation along with rising demand for energy efficient devices in the market. The semiconductor devices segment is further bifurcated into transistors, diodes, optoelectronic components, and integrated circuits. Out of these, integrated circuits held significant revenue approximately USD 90 Bn in 2019, attributed to the robust rise in demand for integrated circuits incorporated with state of art devices such as vehicle automation systems, laptops, and network devices among others.
Over the past few years, smartphones have registered significant growth in demand, especially across under-developed and developing nations. Additionally, the demand for 5G chipset is increasing enormously in the developed countries with the introduction of 5G-enabled smartphones, along with fuelling demand for vehicle automation systems and other telecom equipment. Thus, the increasing demand for 5G chipset is presumed to offer lucrative growth in the integrated circuits segment.
North America held the dominant position in terms of revenue in the global active electronic components market in 2019. The growth is majorly attributed to the rising adoption of micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS) and renewable energy resources. In addition, the increasing demand for portable electronic devices in the region contributes as the key driver for the growth of active electronic components market. Apart from this, burgeoning trend for connected cars and smart homes in the U.S. has opened up new opportunities for the telecom operator in the region to invest huge amount for the deployment of 5G network infrastructure. For instance, in April 2020, AT&T announced investment of USD 5 Bn in the first quarter of 2020 only for expanding 5G network.
Meanwhile, the Asia Pacific seeks to be the most opportunistic region and projected to supersede North America during the forecast period. The region is expected to witness a CAGR of nearly 10.8% over the forecast period. The growth is mainly driven by the presence of huge consumer electronics market in the region. As per a research conducted by the European Council in 2017, China exhibits lucrative growth of 36-38% in the consumer electronics market in 2017. Along with this, China is the largest producer and exporter of consumer electronic products worldwide. Lucrative features and new technologies have transformed the consumer electronics product and thus flourishing the demand for active electronic components market in the region.
