Key Market Trends

Automotive is Expected to Hold a Significant Share

  • In the automotive sector, a digital potentiometer is used in the engine control unit, actuator control, actuator controls, instrumentation controls, and navigation/entertainment display adjustments. The automotive industry has grown significantly in the past years, aided by the growth in unit volumes and the emergence of high innovation companies. According to Scotiabank, the automotive sector expects to sell around 77 million automobiles by the end of 2019. Owing to the increasing purchase of cars across the world, the demand for digital potentiometer is likely to increase over the forecast period.
  • Along with the factors above, increasing adoption of electric vehicles is also favoring the market growth. An electric car comprises of a motor that needs a controller and battery pack to run. The controller shifts electrical power in pulses from the batteries to the motor. The amount of power to transfer is directed to the controller by a pair of potentiometers attached to the gas pedal. These cars have two potentiometers for safety purposes. The controller checks whether the readings from both the potentiometers are the same. If they are not equal, the controller will not operate. This is designed to avoid situations where one potentiometer might be faulty and could send a signal for the power transfer which is not necessary.

Asia-Pacific is Expected to Experience Rapid Growth

  • Asia-Pacific is expected to experience rapid growth in the market, owing to the established electronics industry, in the region. The increased adoption of smartphones, computers, and vehicle automation are the prime factors driving the growth of the Asia-Pacific segment. Increasing smartphone adoption rates have made the region, one of the largest mobile markets in the world. As per the GSMA, in 2018, 2.8 billion people in the region subscribed to mobile services and it is expected by 2025, 370 million new mobile subscribers will be added. With the rising demand for such devices, the demand for LCDs is expected to increase, thereby, influencing the digital potentiometer market in the region.
  • Another driving force is the growth of the automotive sector in this region. In Asia-Pacific, major motor vehicle production plants are in China, India, Japan, and South Korea. As per the OICA (International Organization of Motor Vehicle Manufacturers), in 2018, around 3.7 million passenger vehicles were produced in South Korea.
  • The growing government regulations in favor of electric vehicles market is also a significant factor for market growth over the forecast period. For instance in India, the NITI Aayog action plan for Clean Transportation released in 2018 has already recommended eliminating all permit requirements for EVs to encourage electric mobility.
