Demand for Ring MOV to Remain Strong

Based on the type of MOV, the global MOV market has been classified into disc MOV, strap MOV, block MOV, ring MOV, and various other types, such as chip varistor and multilayered chip varistor. The ring MOV segment held the leading position in the global market in 2016 with a share of more than 44%. Analysts expect the segment to remain dominant over the next few years. Disc MOV, however, is anticipated to witness a high-paced rise in the near future on the ground of its increasing demand in industrial power electronics devices across a number of countries, such as China, India, Japan, the U.K., the U.S., Germany, and Singapore.

On the basis of construction, the global market has been segmented into surface mount MOV and through-hole MOV. Although marginally, the through-hole MOV segment has been leading the overall market and is intended to remain doing so throughout the next few years.
