COVID-19 Impact

The COVID-19 pandemic significantly affected market capacity in the component supply chain. Wuhan, a Chinese city at the epicenter of the COVID-19 epidemic, is home to various electrical and mechanical providers. Because the region was under lockdown, industries could not operate at full capacity. Furthermore, the virus's proliferation throughout China had a severe influence on a variety of businesses. Because of the widespread distribution of COVID-19, component shortages have increased.

Parts could not be manufactured or exported from several countries such as Malaysia, the Philippines, or Indonesia. As a result, OEMs all over the world were unable to import and produce their products. France, the U.S., Germany, Iran, Korea, Spain, Italy, and China were among the worst-affected nations in terms of growing COVID-19 cases and reported deaths as of March 2020. Adopting lockdowns, travel restrictions, and corporate closures caused a significant fall in the growth curve of numerous economies worldwide.

The epidemic is still causing havoc in all aspects of the supply chain, including the components market. The advancement of technologies such as artificial intelligence, 5G, and cloud computing continues to allow and drive demand in various industries, including consumer electronics, automotive, healthcare devices, and industrial and energy items. At the same time, virus outbreaks continue to damage many semiconductor firms, those that are part of the semiconductor ecosystem, and many other essential components. Government rules requiring decreased workforces or temporary shutdowns aggravated labor shortages, constraining components, and part supply.

Product Type Insights

The semiconductor segment dominated with a revenue share of 57.5% in 2022 and is also anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR of over 7.0% during the forecast period. ICs, the sub-segment of semiconductor devices, dominated the overall market with a revenue share of 55.3% in 2022 and is also to witness the fastest CAGR of over 8.1% in the forthcoming years. A semiconductor substance exists between the insulator and the conductor, which controls and regulates the current flow in electrical devices and equipment. As a result, it has become an essential component of electronic chips used in computing components and various electronic devices, such as solid-state storage.

An SMD (Surface Mount Device) Electronic Component made of multiple transistors, diodes, resistors, and capacitors in a tiny semiconductor chip are an Integrated Circuit (IC). ICs, or Integrated Circuit Electronic Components, are small and light, providing more significant outcomes while using less power. An Integrated Circuit (IC) is the integration or assimilation of several electronic components (primarily transistors) on a chip (or single device) constructed of semiconductor material. ICs are extensively utilized in various applications such as televisions, mobile phones, laptops, audio players, routers, etc.

End-user Insights

The consumer electronics segment held the largest revenue share of 31.1% in 2022. It is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR of over 7.0% during the forecast period. The expansion is primarily due to rising demand for semiconductor devices for various consumer electronics such as digital cameras, mobile phones, gaming devices, wearable devices, Set-Top Boxes (STB), and others. Moreover, networking equipment such as modems, routers, repeaters, and gateways are in great demand, especially in the office automation and home application segments. Active electronics components are predicted to increase over the forecast period due to increased demand for network devices and other IT equipment.

Global active electronic components market share, by end-user, 2022 (%)

In June 2022, Nokia Corporation, a Finland-based telecommunication, IT, and consumer electronics company, launched a new Fiber-ToThe-Home (FTTH) kit to help service providers deliver fiber networks to rural regions in the U.S. The package contains all the equipment and licenses for the operator to set up a standard 1,000-home community. The package includes active equipment for the central office (OLT or the optical line terminal), a fiber termination device for the home (ONT or the optical network terminal), and Wi-Fi modules inside the house. Over a single port, the kits support GPON and XGS-PON.

The automotive segment is anticipated to grow at a considerable CAGR of 7.2% throughout the forecast period. Automotive manufacturers worldwide focus on integrating various electronics and technology to attract customers.
