One of the several factors that increase the demand for crystal oscillators is the requirement of highly stable frequency oscillators in the telecommunication industry. Furthermore, there is continuous increasing need for more compact telecommunication components with low power consumption and cost efficiency, which is served by intensive R&D activities in the crystal oscillator market. Among all the crystal oscillators, oven-controlled crystal oscillators offer the unmatched frequency stability and are best suited for telecommunication applications. In addition, the demand for crystal oscillator circuits in portable electronic devices , infotainment system in vehicles, automatic driver assist systems (ADASs) in the automotive industry drive the growth of crystal oscillator market. The wide range of crystal oscillator application includes industries such as electronics, IT & telecommunication, automotive & transport, and aerospace & defense.
Factors that hamper the crystal oscillator market include the invention of si-MEMS oscillators, which are more compact, require lesser power, and have greater efficiency. However, the frequency stability of si-MEMS oscillators is still several times less than crystal oscillators, especially oven-controlled crystal oscillators. Thus, the impact of this factor is expected to diminish slowly as the key players in crystal oscillator market constantly carry out extensive R&D to produce crystals with more compact body size and enhanced frequency stability. In 2015, among all the geographical regions, Asia-Pacific contributed highest share, in terms of revenue, to this market.
The global crystal oscillator market is segmented based on technology, type, mounting scheme, industry vertical, and geography. Based on technology, it is divided into AT cut, SC cut, and BT cut. Based on type, it is classified into oven-controlled, voltage-controlled, temperature-compensated, and other crystal oscillators. Based on mounting scheme, it is bifurcated into surface mount and thru-hole. Categorization based on industry vertical includes, electronics, IT & telecom, military & defense, automotive & transport, and others. Further, based on geography, the crystal oscillator market is segmented into, North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and LAMEA.
