Over the past couple of years, the inductors market has experienced a steady increase in prices owing to the rise in costs of key input elements such as electrodes, dielectrics, and additives. Inductors are sold at a fixed price irrespective of the quantity bought. Prices offered by suppliers depend on the number of items purchased.
Managing raw material price volatility and negotiating on pricing and contractual terms are two of the most effective cost-saving levers in the inductors market. Moreover, consolidating spend, rationalization of the supply base, and optimizing consumption and wastage will increase their process efficiencies, reduce overall costs, achieve increased economies of scale, and transfer these savings to buyers.
In 2018, a leading supplier in the inductors market launched compact and high-current 0806 size metal alloy inductors for automotive applications due to its increased demand. These inductors are suitable for use in information electronics in automotive applications that demand higher reliability. The information electronics include automotive information equipment such as infotainment systems. Suppliers in the inductors market are also evaluating capabilities that enable designers to improve efficiency and potentially reduce the size of DC/DC converter circuitry.
