Report Digest


Crystal oscillator refers to an electronic device used for mechanical resonance of a vibrating crystal made up of piezoelectric material. It creates electrical signal with a given frequency commonly used to keep track of time. For instance, wristwatches are used in digital integrated circuits for the provision of stable clock signal. It  stabilizes frequencies for receivers and radio transmitters. The most commonly used crystal oscillators are linear and relaxation oscillators. These are designed to provide a load resistance.

High demands of crystal oscillators are coming from electronic industries, IT infrastructure companies, telecommunication, military and defense, automotive industries, healthcare companies etc to produce clock signals encouraging
global investors to make investments in this market .

The market for crystal oscillators  is expected to flourish throughout the world and witness remarkable progress in the coming years despite Covid-19 pandemic. It is anticipated to grow at a steady CAGR through 2030.

Telecommunication industries require components that have low power consumption, cost efficiency and high frequency. The market growth is flourishing due  to high demands for oven-controlled crystal oscillators in telecommunication.

Growing demands for crystal oscillators in electronics sector such as smartphones, laptops, wearables, tablets, smart speakers, game consoles etc is  augmenting further progress creating lucrative opportunities for players in this market. These oscillators provides digital input while the DAC produces analog voltage output which controls the VCXO oscillator output providing brilliant phase-noise performance.

Awareness regarding the adoption of latest automated technologies is promoting the use of crystal oscillators across the world.

Automotive industries are using these crystal oscillators in car navigation, wireless communication for remote keyless entry, advanced driver assistance systems etc which is estimated to trigger the market progress.

Technological advancements in healthcare sector is favouring high demands for crystal oscillators as the medical equipments require highly efficient crystal oscillators.

Key Restraints:

The invention of Si MEMS is creating  a challenge for the market growth of crystal oscillators as it can act as a better substitute to it as per users. Si MEMS are more compact, consume less power and provide greater effficiency in comparison to crystal oscillators.

The frequency of oscillations cannot be changed appreciably in crystal oscillators which can hamper the market progess.

These oscillators are fragile and can only be used in low power circuits. Using them in high power circuits can prove dangerous in many cases.

Crystal oscillators are prone to  stability issues that can significantly contribute to limit the progress as it degrades performances and may cause technical and even legal problems.

COVID-19 Impact:

The market for crystal oscillators witnessed a dip in its growth rate due to the spread of  Covid-19 pandemic. In the initial stages of the crisis, complete lockdown was implemented by the government  throughout the world to curb the spread of disease  leading to suspension in the market progress. The pandemic created  disruptions in the production and supply of crystal oscillators. Although this decline in the demand and sales of crystal oscillators existed for a particular period of time. As a result of slowdown in the economic conditions of nations across the globe, the government had to lift  the lockdown.

The players in this market went through the worst. After the relaxations were given, these players started working with few workers and employees in their factories and organisations. They  are actively adopting organic as well as inorganic strategies to lead the market and recover previous losses incurred due to lockdown  which is favouring the market progress again. The market players are modifying their operations and working with innovative ways  to deal with the  restrictions imposed in the pandemic.

 It is predicted that the market will  rise formidably and witness substantial progress through 2030.

Region-Wise Forecast:

The crystal oscillator market is going through a favourable phase in Asia Pacific region on account of  growing adoption of different industrial solutions in automotive sector and  rising demands for consumer electronic devices. It is predicted  that China will lead  the global market for crystal oscillators with one half of market share. In China, electronic gadget manufacturers are investing in this market as these are increasingly used in electronic products such as radios, clocks,  smartphones, computers, tablets, game consoles, smart speakers, VR headsets etc.

 The use of crystal oscillators in  smartphones, tablets, laptops etc is contributing to lucrative progress to this market as these gadgets are in constant demand.These oscillators utilizes mechanical resonance of vibrating crystal to create an electric signal. Further, the growing adoption of these oscillators in healthcare sector in India is surging the market progress. In healthcare sector, it provides shock resistance, low phase noise, low G-sensitivity and does not interfere with the functions of  machines providing steady and reliable clock signals to deliver correct information.

On the other hand, United States is expected to witness steady CAGR rate globally. It is estimated to witness exponential growth owing to rising application in  portable electronic devices, infotainment system in vehicles, automatic driver assist systems in automotive industries etc. The adoption of latest technologies by  manufacturers in Canada and Mexico is driving the progress of this market. Telecommunication industries are also creating potential opportunities for the market players. Telecommunication industries require highly stable, low power consuming and cost efficient crystal oscillators which is striving the demands of these oscillators in North American regions making it the second largest market leader after Asia Pacific.
