Metal Oxide Varistors: A Trend Report

Follow us on LinkedIn - Metal Oxide Varistor, or MOV, is a bipolar, semiconductor-based variable resistor that depends on voltage. Varistor, as a term, is generally used to describe voltage variable resistors. In case of MOVs, the voltage is inversely proportional to the resistance offered by the device. This means that with increase in resistance, the magnitude of voltage decreases. About half of the data lost in computers is the result of fluctuations in power quality, a key reason which prompts companies to invest massive amounts of money in ensuring a stable voltage protected environment. Key factors poised to drive demand for MOVs include deteriorating energy supply system in developing countries, rise in equipment failure on account of power line inconsistencies, and widespread shift of industries towards digitalization and automation of information reporting, and management. The last couple of years have been witnessing the transition of companies to a networked enterprise environment replete with PCs and wireless communications devices. Also expected to lend traction to market growth are factors such as the buoyant telecommunications industry worldwide, continued expansion in the use of personal computers and other technologically advanced electronic devices, and proliferation of microprocessor-based applications.

The trend report titled “Metal Oxide Varistors” announced by Global Industry Analysts, Inc., is a focused research paper which provides cursory insights into the market, product, technology, and corporate initiatives of key companies worldwide.
