NTC thermistors demonstrate a decrease in resistance when subjected to an increase in temperature. This makes them unique in their functionality compared to other electronic components. It also makes them unique in their exposure to specific end-markets such as automotive and home appliance market segments.
The business has also gained increased focus by many vendors and customers in the automotive segment because of its use for temperature sensing and compensation and as a low cost solution for wearable electronics and connected devices used in the emerging Internet of Things (IoT). This study addresses the global market for NTC thermistors by type, configuration, application, world region, competition, and contains forecasts to 2019.
The study begins with an overview of thermistor technology and component configurations including Leaded Thermistors, such as NTC Thermistor Radial Leaded, Glass Encapsulated: NTC Thermistor Radial Leaded, Epoxy Encapsulated, NTC Thermistor Radial Leaded, Inrush Current Limiting:, NTC Thermistor Radial Leaded, Thin Film Design, NTC Thermistor Radial Leaded, Commodity Disc:; NTC Thermistor Axial Leaded, Glass Encapsulated; and Surface Mount Thermistors, such as NTC Thermistor Chip (Multilayered) , NTC Thermistor MELF Designs, NTC Thermistor Leadless Naked Chip and NTC Thermistor Leadless Discs. The study also looks at the conversion of NTC thermistor components into probe assemblies and related markets in automotive, home appliance and specialty End-Use market segments. The study takes a detailed look at applications and end-markets for NTC thermistors in various automotive sub-assemblies including under-the-hood and beyond the firewall environments for temperature sensing and compensation. The study also looks at the large and small home appliance business segment for NTC thermistors, including key sensing and compensation market applications in refrigerators and air conditioners as well as other large and small home appliances.
The study also looks at NTC thermistor chip and disc temperature compensation and sensing markets in digital electronics (SMPS, Computer, Handset)and in industrial electronics (Ballasts and Motors), including markets for inrush current limiters. Other markets, Including specialty applications in defense, medical and instrumentation are also addressed. The Product market section offers detailed analysis of global consumption value, volume and pricing, as well as demand by end-use market segment and by world region, as well as demand by configuration and thermistor sub-type. Chip demand is addressed in case sizes. The competitive segment of the report analyzes competition among the top 20 NTC thermistor vendors based upon competition by configuration, competition by radial leaded sub-type, competition by chip case size, and competition by end-use product markets. The forecast segment offers estimated for consumption of NTC thermistors between 2014 and 2019 in terms of value, volume and pricing as well as demand by world region and end-use market segment to 2019.
