Global Fixed Inductor Market Definition

According to their structural characteristics, inductors are categorized as either fixed or floating, and floating inductors are the most widely used inductive devices. A fixed inductor (also known as a fixed coil) is an inductor with a fixed inductance; it may have one layer, several layers, a honeycomb structure, or a magnetic core.

Depending on the inductance and the maximum DC operating current, these coils are packaged with epoxy resin or plastic and wound on the magnetic core. The benefits of this type of fixed inductor include its compact size, low weight, stable structure, ease of use, and installation. It is primarily utilized in delay, oscillation, filtering, and trapping circuits. Both the sealed and non-sealed packing options feature vertical and horizontal appearance structures.

Fixed inductor types include air-core, iron-core, and ferrite-core. Air-core is that type of inductor where a coil of wire is twisted around a hollow cardboard former. The coil is called as an air-core inductor since there is only air inside of it. Moreover, iron-core is an inductor with a wire coil wound around a laminated or solid iron core. Whereas, ferrite-core inductor has a wire coil twisted around a core made of ferrite, a highly ferromagnetic material.

Global Fixed Inductor Market Size, Forecast, and Trend Highlights Over 2023 – 2035

The global fixed inductor market is estimated to garner a revenue of ~USD 7 Billion by the end of 2035, by growing at a CAGR of ~4% over the forecast period, i.e., 2023 – 2035. Further, the market generated a revenue of ~USD 4 Billion in the year 2022. The growth of the market can primarily be attributed to the growing demand for transformers which is an important part of power generation worldwide. For instance, according to the data published in the ITC Trade Map, the global value of the import of parts of electrical transformers and inductors was USD 10,383,284 thousand in 2020, which further increased to USD 12,791,611 thousand in 2021.


The coils in a fixed inductor are wound such that the turns remain fixed in position with respect to each other. A fixed conductor either has a core whose air gap and position within the coil is fixed or has no magnetic core. They tend to be more compact and convenient inductors, and they are a smart choice for applications in which steady inductance is expected. The wide use of fixed conductors in combination with capacitors to make tuned circuits, which are used to tune radio and TV receivers, is expected to create massive revenue generation opportunities for the key players operating in the global fixed inductor market during the forecast period. It was found that, in the year 2021, the worth of the United States television industry was estimated to be more than 200 billion. The amount spent on TV subscription services was estimated to be USD 119 billion in 2021, which grew by approximately 5 billion in 2020.
