This market study from Paumanok Publications, Inc. is a detailed global market analysis for the entire linear and non-linear resistor industries. The market study includes the following components- thick and thin film chip resistors, multichip resistor arrays, SIP and DIP resistor networks; wirewound resistors, nichrome resistors, tin-oxide resistors, carbon film resistors, bulk metal foil resistors; metal oxide varistors, PTC thermistors and NTC thermistors. The study is broken down into two primary segments- linear resistors segment and non-linear resistors segment. The study addresses all key aspects of the global market include current and historical value, volume and pricing by component type and subcategory; demand by end-use market segment for each component; demand by world region; and demand by component configuration (Chips, networks,. Axial, radial, other). The study also offers detailed competitive environment information as well as detailed market share data for each vendor by each component subcategory. An exhaustive technology assessment is also in the report as are forecasts in terms of value, volume and pricing for each component by type and sub-category as well as forecasts by end-use market segment and world region to 2017. The study also includes a complete directory of all known linear and non-linear resistor manufacturers in the world.
