Thin and thick film resistors are the most common types in the market. They are characterized by a resistive layer on a ceramic base. Although their appearance might be very similar, their properties and manufacturing process are very different. The naming originates from the different layer thicknesses. Thin film has a thickness in the order of 0.1 micrometer or smaller, while thick film is around thousands time thicker. However, the main difference is method the resistive film is applied onto the substrate. Thin film resistors have a metallic film that is vacuum deposited on an insulating substrate. Thick film resistors are produced by firing a special paste onto the substrate. The paste is a mixture of glass and metal oxides. Thin film is more accurate, has a better temperature coefficient and is more stable. It therefore competes with other technologies that feature high precision, such as wire wound or bulk metal foil. On the other hand, thick film is preferred for applications where these high requirements are not critical since prices are much lower. This report studies the Thick Film Resistors market.
The Global Thick Film Resistors Market Research Report 2017 report released by QYResearch provides a basic overview of the Thick Film Resistors industry. In this study, the market for Thick Film Resistors consumption divided into six geographic regions. Among all regions, China is estimated to represent the highest share due to a lot of ODM and EMS players there.

Since February 2017, many Taiwan companies had adjusted the prices of thick film resistors from time to time, leading to a very chaotic market for thick film resistors. The main reasons for the increase in prices are as follows: continuous rise of raw materials and packaging materials, improvement of environmental protection requirements, and continuous increase in labor costs etc.
In the applications, the consumer electronics and telecommunications segment were estimated to account for the highest volume share of 67.86 % in 2017. Thick film resistors have a wide range of applications and are indispensable parts of the consumer electronics, communications, automotive, industrial, medical, and energy industries. Thus, manufactures are very optimistic about the industry's prospects. Although the recent market price is relatively turbulent, it is believed that manufacturers will soon regulate the stability of the market and make the thick film resistors develop steadily.
