Linear Regulator Market Segment Analysis- By Product Type

Based on Product Type, the low dropout segment in the Linear Regulator Market report is analyzed to grow at the highest CAGR of 5.8% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Due to the rapidly growing consumer electronics, the adoption of battery-powered devices is constantly rising. Low-dropout linear regulators are an essential part of these battery-powered devices as they can provide multiple voltage levels with constant and stable output. In March 2022, STMicroelectronics launched LD56020, a high accuracy low power linear regulator. The ultra-low dropout, 1.1V low input voltage makes this regulator suitable for battery-operated applications. These factors are increasing the adoption of low dropout regulators and thereby increasing the Linear Regulator Market size.

Linear Regulator Market Segment Analysis - by End-use Industry

Based on End-user Industry, the Automobile industry in the Linear Regulator Market report is analyzed to grow with the highest CAGR of 6.2% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Increased use of linear regulators in the automotive sector across ADAS, EPS and transmissions, is the primary factor driving the market forward. Since various manufacturers of linear voltage regulators are focusing on offering functions such as watchdog, reset and early warning, the use of linear voltage regulators in automobiles appears beneficial in difficult conditions. In FY 2021, according to European Automobile Manufacturers Association, Europe’s passenger cars registration went up to 11 million units with a growth of 8% from the previous year. These developments foster the demand for linear regulators in the Automobile industry and thereby positively influence the Linear Regulator Industry Outlook during the forecast period.

Linear Regulator Market Segment Analysis- By Geography

APAC dominated the global market for Linear Regulators with a market share of 44% in 2021. The region is also analyzed to have significant growth over the forecast period owing to increased demand for consumer electronics and constant R&D investments by the major manufacturers and governments in this region. According to IBEF, in the span of April 2020 to December 2021, India attracted foreign direct investments of US$3.19 billion in the electronics goods sector. These continuous flows of investments would bolster the APAC region’s presence and increase the Linear Regulator Market size.

Linear Regulator Market Drivers

Increased demand for linear regulators in the electrical industry:

Linear Voltage Regulators are widely used in the electrical industry, where a stable and ripple-free power supply is required. These ripple blocker LDOs can convert a higher input voltage to a lower output voltage. Furthermore, due to the lack of a switching element, the linear voltage regulator has extremely low output ripple and spectral noise. As a result, linear voltage regulators are widely used in both wired and wireless communication systems. In March 2021, Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation announced the availability of new multiple-output LDO regulators with an ultra-fast transient response for use in a Multi-chip Package based on Universal Flash Storage (UFS). These developments are expected to boost the Linear Regulator Market size during the forecast period.

Rapid technological advancements in the semiconductor industry:

Semiconductors are an integral part of any electronic device. Due to the rapid growth of the electronics and telematics industry, the demand for semiconductors is constantly rising. These linear regulators utilize solid-state semiconductors to smooth out variations in the flow of current. These factors, as well as the benefits such as quick response to the load voltage change, boost the Linear Regulator Industry. The 14th Five-year Plan (2021-2025) by the Chinese Government for technology independence states that the country’s growth strategy would meet 70% of China’s Semiconductor demand with domestic production by 2025. These aforementioned factors would positively influence the Linear Regulator Industry outlook during the forecast period.

Linear Regulator Market Challenges

Difficulty in usage and lower proficiency in comparison to others:

The factor limiting the development of the Linear Regulator market is their low proficiency when compared to exchanging voltage controllers. The components of linear voltage regulators require standard support and substitutions, making direct voltage controllers difficult to use. The other major points limiting the development of the linear regulator market are the necessity of space due to the presence of heat sinks and the fact that Linear Voltage Regulators cannot increase the voltage above the input.
