Crystal oscillators are elements incorporated into electronic devices that generate electric signals of precise frequencies. They are often used as clock sources, clock multipliers or frame synchronizers in various communication and instrumentation devices. They find widespread applications across end use verticals such as telecommunications industry, consumer electronics, automotive, medical devices and industrial equipment owing to their ability to maintain precise frequencies over long durations of time.
The Crystal Oscillator market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2252.43 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 4.0% over the forecast period 2023 to 2030, as highlighted in a new report published by Coherent Market Insights.
The growth of the crystal oscillator market is driven by factors such as increasing adoption of IoT devices and proliferation of wireless communication technologies. IoT is connecting billions of smart devices across the world which require precise clock signals provided by crystal oscillators for communication and synchronization purposes. According to estimates, there will be over 25 billion devices connected via IoT globally by 2025. Further, continual advancements in wireless communication technologies such as 5G networks, LTE, WiFi 6 etc have increased the demand for frequency control components like crystal oscillators in base stations and portable devices. Additionally, expansion of automotive electronics in vehicles is also boosting adoption of crystal oscillators in applications such as ADAS, telematics, infotainment and engine control units.
The crystal oscillator market can be segmented into voltage-controlled crystal oscillator (VCXO), temperature-compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO), frequency-locked loop (FLL) crystal oscillator, and others. Among these, the TCXO dominating segment as it offers better stability and accuracy compared to other segments. It keeps the output frequency constant despite temperature fluctuations thereby making it suitable for various applications including telecommunications infrastructure, networking and computing equipment, mobile devices, and industrial instrumentation among others.
