PTC Thermistors: World Markets, Technologies & Opportunities: 2015-2019 

This report addresses the global market for PTC thermistors in both ceramic and polymer construction; and in their various configurations- radial, surface mount, MELF, rods and discs and axial strap; as well as their vertical integration into probe assemblies and degaussing assemblies. The study begins with a detailed technical analysis showing the variations between ceramic and polymer PTC thermistor technology and then addresses the global value and volume of demand from 1998 to 2014, with 2015 to 2019 forecasts; as well as detailed pricing analysis for PTC thermistors by construction, type and configuration.

The study also continues by breaking down global demand to the granular level, including demand by application in temperature sensing, overcurrent protection, motor start and degaussing and demand and forecasts for consumption by end-use market segment in telecommunications, computers, industrial, home appliance, consumer AV and specialty, medical and defense end-use markets.

The study also includes a detailed analysis for demand for PTC thermistors by world region; a detailed analysis of the competitive environment for thermistors based upon type and configuration and chip case size. The study includes detailed market share information for both ceramic PTC thermistors and polymer PTC thermistors. The study offers forecasts to 2019 for value and volume of PTC thermistor consumption as well as pricing forecasts; and analysis of changes in technology for 2015 and beyond.
