  14. 14. Thin Film Resistors: World Markets, Technologies & Opportunities: 2015-2020 A Bright Future For Precision Thin Film Resistors Demand for thin film resistors and integrated passive devices are increasing because of the precision nature of the thin film components and the added volumetric efficiency that integrated passive device manufacturers can offer the design engineer. Prices for these advanced technologies are also coming down as economies of scale increase. Bright Outlook Forecasted for Thin Film Resistor Chips and Networks: We can ascertain from Paumanok Publications Industrial Market Research and from primary sources that one area of market growth over the next five years will be in thin film chip resistors as they continue to displace thick film (Ru02 type) resistors for traditional and specialty circuit applications. For CY 2014, we estimate the global market for thin film resistors, arrays, networks and integrated passive devices at $183 million US Dollars, the majority of which is in thin film nickel-chromium chips on alumina substrates. The initial areas of greatest impact where thin film resistors are and will continue to be in greatest demand will be in niche categories where precision, corrosion resistance, high temperature and volumetric efficiency come together. The increased production volume of thin film chip resistors, especially in Taiwan and China, will continue to create increasingly larger economies of scale and lower average unit pricing, which will in turn make thin film chips more in line with traditional thick film pricing (Many in China feel we have already reached that point of parity in price). According to thin film chip resistor manufacturers, due to the reliance of thick film chip resistor manufacturers on ruthenium metal, a Platinum Group Metal (PGM) product that is subject to dramatic historical swings in price due to the difficulties of mining in South Africa, the movement toward a base metal substitute is also in the best interest of the customer. One method of manufacturing thin film resistor chips is through the sputtering of nickel chromium on an alumina substrate. Additional techniques are based upon the use of tantalum nitride on silicon; and/or chromium silicide on silicon (among others).

  18. 18. Value-Added & Application Specific Ceramic Capacitors: World Markets, Technologies & Opportunities: 2015-2020 ISBN # 1-893211-90-8 (2015) Cary, NC USA: This market, technologies & opportunities report from Paumanok Publications, Inc. entitled "Value-Added & Application Specific Ceramic Capacitors: World Markets, Technologies & Opportunities: 2015-2020" has been researched and written to provide the reader with an in-depth analysis of value-added and application specific ceramic capacitor world markets, including high voltage ceramic capacitors, high frequency ceramic capacitors, high temperature ceramic capacitors; ceramic feed thru capacitors; ceramic safety capacitors (X&Y) and automotive under-the- hood ceramic capacitors for applications in specialty segments of the power conversion, telecom infrastructure, medical test & scan, medical implant, defense, oil & gas, semiconductor manufacturing equipment, specialty lighting and automotive market segments. As mass produced ceramic capacitor products move to low-cost manufacturing regions, ceramic capacitor manufacturers in Japan, Korea, China, USA, Germany, UK and France must re-evaluate their existing production facilities in high-cost regions, and reposition their product portfolios to address markets that will remain localized. The majority of these markets require value-added and application-specific ceramic capacitors that can operate under high reliability specifications and in harsh environments. This market study sheds light on the fragmented, low volume, high value, high profit portion of the global ceramic capacitor industry. This report gives detailed intelligence data on the specialty segment of the global ceramic capacitor market, where operating margins are the highest and where price is secondary to component quality and performance. As the low picofarad MLCC markets become inundated with suppliers, companies with smaller economies of scale must refocus all or part of their product portfolio to address more profitable segments of the market. This new focus should include application specific ceramic capacitors to increase profit margins and delay the continued price erosion in their overall ceramic capacitor product offering, and to understand the competitive environment, demand by world region, pricing, technology, and opportunities with detailed forecasts to 2020.

We estimate that NTC thermistor content will increase by about 5% per automobile during this time period in unit volume to support the expansion of heating sensing and compensation in a larger number of standard automobiles; and we also forecast that there will be more competition in the automotive NTC thermistor markets brought about by the insistence of automotive manufacturers for suppliers dedicated to their industry. The larger number of competitors will also drive down price per unit overall; however, demand in value will increase to an estimated $250 million USD. This is a good growth market for NTC thermistor vendors.

Other major players include NEC Tokin, which will be acquired by Kemet for FY 2014, Elna and NESS; there are also 31 additional vendors with less than 2% share as noted in the column on the left. One take away from this chart is that there are too many vendors for such a small market. 27 Paumanok Publications, Inc. 502 Ballad Creek Court Cary, NC 27519 USA (919) 468-0384 (919) 468-0386 Fax www.paumanokgroup.com info@paumanokgroup.com

Energy Costs: Energy costs can impact the aluminum production process. Smelting alumina into aluminum requires a constant, large supply of electricity, which accounts for around 25% of the costs of the entire smelting process. If energy costs become too high, smelters may be forced to shut down or move to a location where energy costs are lower. On the other hand, a decrease in energy costs can allow previously closed smelters to reopen, which would increase the supply of aluminum and lower prices. Capacitor$Foil$Production:$ The primary raw material consumed in the manufacture of aluminum electrolytic capacitors is thin gage aluminum foil. This foil must be etched and electrochemically formed before it can be wound as the dielectric support material for the finished aluminum electrolytic capacitor. The etching process is the single most expensive process in the production of aluminum electrolytic capacitors. Most major world manufacturers of aluminum electrolytic capacitors attempt to control their processing costs by owning and operating their own foil processing plants. But no major manufacturers of aluminum electrolytic capacitors own aluminum foil feedstock plants, so the general starting point in the supply chain is the purchase of the thin, high-purity foil direct from the merchant market. Japanese companies dominate the thin foil stock supply to the global aluminum electrolytic capacitor markets worldwide. This includes sales to the capacitor manufacturers who etch and form their capacitor foils in house and those merchant market vendors who etch and form foils for resale to the capacitor industry. 28 Paumanok Publications, Inc. 502 Ballad Creek Court Cary, NC 27519 USA (919) 468-0384 (919) 468-0386 Fax www.paumanokgroup.com info@paumanokgroup.com
