Electronic Coils, Transformers and Other Inductors: A Global Strategic Business Report
San Jose, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) April 13, 2011
Electronic coils, transformers, and inductors are part of electronic components known as passive components. These components are a vital building block in various types of appliances and electronic devices. OEMs constitute the primary end-users of electronic components. The coil and transformer industry is witnessing rapid innovations in terms of miniaturization, weight reduction, and introduction of surface mounting. There has been a dramatic increase in the commodity prices of materials used for manufacturing transformers over the last decade. The market is concerned about the fall in prices of transformers to the tune of about 20% due to a decrease in raw material pass-through. Over a period of time, the transmission spending growth is expected to overtake the supply growth of electrical steel, thereby creating significant pricing pressure for transformer manufacturing companies. However, the pressure is expected to be less severe for high-voltage transmission transformers than for medium-voltage distribution transformers.
Growing environmental concerns across the world have prompted governments to implement energy efficient transmission and distribution practices in the electricity sector. Energy losses in power supply systems generally occur through theft, system inefficiency, and infrastructure under investments, which have become an immense cause of concern world over. Transformers account for a significant share of overall energy losses during electricity distribution. Research has proven that even a slight improvement in efficiency levels could save millions of dollars. In this regard, of late HTS (High Temperature Superconductors) transformers have been gaining a great deal of attention. HTS transformers are considered to offer near zero levels of electrical resistance and energy losses. The US, Japan, Korea, Switzerland and Sweden are considered market leaders in the production of world-class transformers.
Majority of demand in the industry is being driven by innovations in end-use industries such as consumer electronics, computing, and telecommunications. Introduction of sophisticated electronic components have played a crucial role in rapidly increasing the range of end served markets. Additionally, the use of passive/rigid components by integrated circuits is also growing and likely to gain momentum over the years. With population growth expected to decline or remain stable in upcoming years in developed regions such as Western Europe, Japan and North America, demand for electric power is expected to follow a sedate growth. On the contrary, booming economies in Asia-Pacific are forecast to emanate spiraling demand for electric power.
Asia-Pacific stands tall as the single most dominating market worldwide, as stated by the new market research report on Electronic Coils, Transformers and Other Inductors. The region is also anticipated to forge ahead over the analysis period at the overall fastest CAGR of 3.9%. Rapid expansion and development in the region is stimulated by the presence of fast growing markets such as China, India, South Korea and Taiwan. Asia-Pacific is considered the largest importer of Transformers on a global basis. Singapore and Hong Kong are the largest importers of transformers within Asia, while China reigns as the leading exporter of transformers within Asia.
