Integrated Passive Device Market size worth $2bn by 2026

  • Published Date: December 1, 2020

Integrated Passive Device Market size is set to surpass USD 2 billion by 2026, according to a new research report by Global Market Insights Inc.

The market revenue is driven by the rising demand for miniaturized and high-performance electronic circuits for consumer electronics devices. IPDs offer several high-end features, such as energy efficiency, high durability, and increased functionality, compared to discrete components. In addition, these devices can be fitted into confined spaces, increasing their adoption in smartwatches, fit bits, smartphones, tablets, and others. The rising demand for wearable electronics across developed economies is likely to boost the adoption of IPDs. According to a report generated by Pew Research Center, 21% of U.S. adults regularly wear smart watches or wearable fitness trackers. The growing uptake of wearable devices will significantly boost the market expansion.

Design-related complexities associated with silicon-based integrated passive devices are restraining the market growth. The silicon-based IPDs have low life cycle and are difficult to modify after their fabrication. In addition, these IPDs require high scale integration and advanced packaging, increasing the overall manufacturing costs. However, the market players are innovating new IPDs with glass material as an alternative to traditional silicon material, which will overcome design complexity.
