Global Varactor Diode Market – Insights

A varactor diode is a P-N junction diode that changes its capacitance and series resistance when the bias applied to the diode is varied. Varactor diodes has wide range of application such as automatic frequency controllers (AFCS), ultra high frequency television sets, high frequency radios, frequency multipliers, band pass filters, and harmonic generators, owing to special property of varying capacitance with varying voltage. These diodes are mainly used in radiofrequency circuits, which are used in most of the electronic devices to provide a capacitance that can be varied by changing voltage in an electronics circuit. Growing demand for consumer electronics such as tablets, smartphones, electronic devices, and DVD recorders for entertainment, commercial, and educational purpose is expected to boost growth of the global varactor diode market.

Global varactor diode market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period (2018–2026). The market growth for varactor diode is majorly attributed to growing demand for consumer electronic devices and use of varactor diode in radar systems to detect objects such as spacecraft, aircraft, guided missiles, and motor vehicles.

The major restraining factor for global varactor diode market is the availability of zener diode and other diode as an alternative to varactor diode as it has similar properties and cost less than varactor diode. However, the use of zener diode is avoided where strict requirement of high range tuning diode is needed.
