The UK market for electronic-component distribution declined in value in 2001, following strong growth in 2000. Key Note estimates that the market was worth £7.9bn in 2001 - less than its 1999 value.

A good example of this would be a resistor, which restricts the flow of current. An active component is any item which, when introduced into an electronic circuit, modifies the operation of that circuit not just by its presence but also by active software/control commands received from elsewhere. Semiconductors account for the largest share of the active-components sector by value.
