Wirewound Resistor Market: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment; 2018 - 2028

Market Overview

Global Wirewound Resistor Market: Overview

Nowadays, designers prefer wirewound resistors as they provide the ability to adjust to specific resistance values without affecting the larger power ratings which are more common on fixed wirewound resistors. The insulated nature of wirewound resistors is responsible for maintaining the safety majors at the end application locations, resulting in the increased demand for wirewound resistors. The application of wirewound resistors across different industry verticals is expected to increase significantly over the forecast period, due to the features of wirewound resistors such as they are highly accurate and deliver high stability. Manufacturers are maintaining international standards while manufacturing wirewound resistors to be supplied to international locations. Due to these standardizations, such as MIL-PRF-39005, BS EN 60115, and others, the sale and demand for wirewound resistors is increasing.

A wirewound resistor is a resistor with the combination of a wire and an insulating core. The wire is wrapped around an insulating core, and the wire has high resistivity. A wirewound resistor is used for providing resistance. A wirewound resistor is used for limiting current, and is also used as a passive electrical component.

Global Wirewound resistor Market: Drivers

The major factor driving the growth of the wirewound resistor market is the various applications of wirewound resistors in different industry verticals to deliver constant output and prevent damage to products. In addition to this, the increasing production of consumer electronic devices such as computers, and audio and video devices, and others, is the other important factor fuelling the growth of the wirewound resistor market. The other benefits of using wirewound resistors, such as high stability, accuracy, and wide resistance range available with them, are resulting in their increasing demand. Manufacturers of electronic devices also prefer wirewound resistors due to their lower cost, and this factor is simultaneously expected to fuel the demand for wirewound resistors over the forecast period. The applications of wirewound resistors across different industry verticals due to their specific features, including circuit breakers and circuit sensing, is ultimately fuelling the wirewound resistor market.
