Additionally, technological advancements resulted in product miniaturization, giving rise to a multitude of micro devices such as microprocessors, micro sensors, microcontrollers, and micro instruments. Thermoelectric technology can be used to solve thermal problems in microelectronic circuits by catering unattended & continuous power requirements, and backup power on manned platforms for critical communications & emergency shutdown systems.
The modules find primary application across industries such as in Opto-electronics and telecom industries. Thermoelectric modules have the potential to find broad application in waste heat recovery (energy harvesting).
The primary factors that hinder the growth of the thermoelectric modules market are their high cost and low-efficiency. The market still has to overcome the inefficiency hurdle on a commercial scale to make the thermoelectric materials an attractive proposition. Active R&D activities carried by companies such as HI-Z Technology Inc., and Ferrotec Corporation, around the world, are aimed at tackling these restraints. Nanotechnology is helping the thermoelectric technology achieve breakthroughs.
The report segments the global micro thermoelectric market based on the application of thermoelectric modules into energy harvesters, detectors and sensors, lasers & LEDs, etc.
Market segmentation based on geography divides the market into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, and Rest of the World. In 2016, among all the mentioned regions, Asia-Pacific accounted for the largest share of the global micro thermoelectric modules market. The growth of Asia-Pacific can be attributed to the performance of burgeoning economies of India and China. The low cost of production owing to the low labor cost, and growing demand for thermoelectric modules in various applications are some of the factors for the rise in demand in Asia-Pacific. This region is projected to dominate the global micro thermoelectric modules market over the forecast period.
Some of the major companies specialized in producing micro thermoelectric modules include:
Kelk Ltd., Yamaha, RMT Ltd., Micropelt GmbH, TEC microsystems, thermion company, , TE technology, Ferrotec Corporation, Marlow Industries, Kryotherm and others.
