Thick Film Resistor Market Size Projected to Surge USD 771.9 Million Growth by 2033, Exhibit a CAGR of 5.2%

Thick film resistor market size from USD 465.0 million in 2023 to USD 771.9 million in 10 years. The increasing demand from electronic sectors and industries drive the market's growth. Asia Pacific emerged as the largest global thick film resistor market, with a 34.5% market revenue share in 2023.

Newark, June 19, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The Brainy Insights estimates that the USD 465.0 million thick film resistor market will reach USD 771.9 million by 2033. The market is growing primarily due to the growing demand for electronic devices and the growing acceptance of wearables and the Internet of Things (IoT). IoT devices and wearables typically require compact components to fit into small form factors. Thick film resistors work well in these applications because of their small size, high integration density, and compatibility with surface mount technology (SMT). The desire for smaller electronics is being driven by the rise in wearables and Internet of Things devices, which is, in turn, driving the demand for thick film resistors that are durable, compact, and strong. For example, the State of IoT Spring 2023 study states that the number of active IoT endpoints worldwide climbed by 18% in 2022 to reach 14.3 billion.

The growing popularity of electric and hybrid cars and the developing 5G network, are anticipated to fuel market expansion. A sizable wireless infrastructure, comprising base stations, small cells, antennas, and RF (radio frequency) modules, is required for 5G networks to support higher data speeds, lower latency, and more network capacity. The requirement for thick film resistors in RF circuits, antenna-matching networks, and impedance-matching networks used in 5G infrastructure drives the need for high-performance resistors in these applications. For example, a forecast by 5G Americas estimates that by the end of 2023, there will be 1.76 billion 5G connections worldwide, an increase of 700 million connections net over the previous year.
