Thin and thick film resistors are the most common types in the market. They are characterized by a resistive layer on a ceramic base. Although their appearance might be very similar, their properties and manufacturing process are very different. The naming originates from the different layer thicknesses. Thin film has a thickness in the order of 0.1 micrometer or smaller, while thick film is around thousands time thicker. However, the main difference is method the resistive film is applied onto the substrate. Thin film resistors have a metallic film that is vacuum deposited on an insulating substrate. Thick film resistors are produced by firing a special paste onto the substrate. The paste is a mixture of glass and metal oxides. Thin film is more accurate, has a better temperature coefficient and is more stable. It therefore competes with other technologies that feature high precision, such as wire wound or bulk metal foil. On the other hand, thick film is preferred for applications where these high requirements are not critical since prices are much lower. This report studies the Thick Film Resistors market.
According to the report, global revenue for Thick Film Resistors market was valued at $ 1054.2 million in 2017, and is expected to generate revenue of $ 1738.9 million by end of 2025, growing at a CAGR of slightly above 6.46% between 2017 and 2025.
Since February 2017, many Taiwan and other regions' manufactures had adjusted the prices of thick film resistors from time to time, leading to a very chaotic market for thick film resistors. The main reasons for the increase in prices are as follows: continuous rise of raw materials and packaging materials, improvement of environmental protection requirements, and continuous increase in labor costs etc. At present, the price of thick film resistors on the market continues to rise, and supply is tight.
Thick film resistors have a wide range of applications and are indispensable parts of the consumer electronics, communications, automotive, industrial, medical, and energy industries. Thus, manufactures are very optimistic about the industry's prospects. Although the recent market price is relatively turbulent, it is believed that manufacturers will soon regulate the stability of the market and make the thick film resistors develop steadily.
