Thin film resistors market report

Demand for thin film resistors and integrated passive devices are increasing because of the precision nature of the thin film components and the added volumetric efficiency that integrated passive device manufacturers can offer the design engineer. Prices for these advanced technologies are also coming down as economies of scale increase.

We can ascertain from Paumanok Industrial Market Research and from primary sources that one area of market growth over the next five years will be in thin film chip resistors as they continue to displace thick film (Ru02 type) resistors for traditional and specialty circuit applications. For CY 2014, we estimate the global market for thin film resistors, arrays, networks and integrated passive devices at $183 million US Dollars, the majority of which is in thin film nickel-chromium chips on alumina substrates.

The initial areas of greatest impact where thin film resistors are and will continue to be in greatest demand will be in niche categories where precision, corrosion resistance, high temperature and volumetric efficiency come together. The increased production volume of thin film chip resistors, especially in Taiwan and China, will continue to create increasingly larger economies of scale and lower average unit pricing, which will in turn make thin film chips more in line with traditional thick film pricing (Many in China feel we have already reached that point of parity in price).

According to thin film chip resistor manufacturers, due to the reliance of thick film chip resistor manufacturers on ruthenium metal, a Platinum Group Metal (PGM) product that is subject to dramatic historical swings in price due to the difficulties of mining in South Africa, the movement toward a base metal substitute is also in the best interest of the customer. One method of manufacturing thin film resistor chips is through the sputtering of nickel chromium on an alumina substrate. Additional techniques are based upon the use of tantalum nitride on silicon; and/or chromium silicide on silicon (among others).

The new market research report goes on to discuss the global markets, technologies and opportunities associated with thin film resistors, arrays, networks and flatpacks; regional demand; end-market and product demand; demand by world region, competitive environment, sales and market shares and five year forecasts.
