Discrete Diodes: A Global Strategic Business Report

Follow us on LinkedIn – Defined as the basic building blocks of an electronic circuit, discrete diodes are designed to allow current flow only in one direction and thereby help prevent damage to the circuitry system. Key applications of discrete diodes in electronics include regulating voltage and protecting circuits from high voltage surges; electronically tuning TV and radio receivers; generating radio frequency oscillations; and producing light, among others. Discrete diodes are ubiquitous electronic components used in diverse electronic products ranging from communication devices and automotive electronic systems to computers, computer peripherals and consumer electronics. Steady growth is projected for the market in the coming years, driven by the resurgence in demand for electronic products after a period of slowdown in 2012 & 2013 and subsequent rise in electronics manufacturing.

Future growth in the market will be driven by increasing use of electronics in automobiles, growing sophistication of mobile communication and computing devices such as smartphones, tablets, netbooks, etc. Focus on in-car safety, convenience and entertainment and increasing electronic content per car are spewing opportunities for range a discrete diodes in automotive electronics, given the critical role they play in voltage regulation and protection of vulnerable circuits against current surges. The market in the coming years will also witness sustained demand for diodes in high-frequency applications such as in radios, TVs and other devices requiring digital logic circuits. The trend towards miniaturization of electronic devices with light weight and sleeker form factors of electronic devices particularly in mobile devices will also continue to drive demand for discrete diodes. Owing to significant savings offered in terms of costs and assembly time, and greater reliability as compared to individually packaged diodes, diode arrays are gaining increasing popularity.

As stated by the new market research report on Discrete Diodes, Asia-Pacific represents the largest as well as the fastest growing regional market worldwide with revenues from the region projected to wax at a CAGR of 5.5% over the analysis period. Steady rise in demand for electronic devices and the subsequent increase in their production and the huge offshore electronic contract manufacturing services (ECMS) industry in the region represent key growth drivers in the region. RF & microwave diodes are forecast to witness strong growth led by the growing radio frequency applications in the consumer electronics and wireless handset markets.
