A large number of standard thermoelectric modules are available in the market. However, manufacturers of thermoelectric modules are fully aware that a standard solution would not always meet customers' needs. Since many attributes need to be ascertained for each application, often a customized thermoelectric module would yield a more optimal thermal solution. Consequently, manufacturers focus on producing quick and cost-effective thermoelectric products and solutions catering to customer requirements. A flexible production process adopted by manufacturers help them provide better thermoelectric products and solutions that cater to varying customer needs. For instance, Laird Technologies, Inc. offers strong engineering services with a worldwide presence that supports thermal modeling, onsite concept generation, rapid prototyping, and thermal design for customized solutions.
Thermoelectric modules can be used for applications that require heat removal ranging from milli-watts to several thousand watts. They permit stabilizing the temperature of an object above ambient temperatures and lowering it below ambient temperature. Moreover, the effect of a thermoelectric cooler is different from that of a heat sink because the former performs active cooling while the latter provides only passive cooling. This makes thermoelectric modules preferable over other conventional systems such as compressor systems and traditional refrigerant-based systems. Due to these advantages, the demand for thermoelectric modules is expected to remain strong during the forecast period.
The global thermoelectric modules market is consolidated, with a few major global companies dominating the market. The important strategy adopted by key players in the global thermoelectric modules market is the development of new products in order to address varying requirements of the customers. For instance, Ferrotec Corporation offers more than 1,700 different thermoelectric module types for varied applications. Kryotherm (Russia) makes more than 250 types of standard thermoelectric modules available to their customers. Moreover, manufacturers of thermoelectric modules are also focusing on inorganic growth through mergers and acquisitions. For instance in February 2013, Laird Technologies Inc. acquired the U.S. based thin film thermoelectric module manufacturer Nextreme Thermal Solutions, Inc. In 2005, Ferrotec Corporation acquired the majority shares of SCTB NORD Company, a supplier of thermoelectric modules based in Russia.
The global Thermoelectric modules market, in current situation shows the presence of key players including Ferrotec Corporation, Tellurex Corporation, Laird Technologies, Inc., RMT Ltd., Marlow Industries, TE Technology, Inc., KELK Ltd., Thermion Company, EVERREDtronics Ltd., Micropelt GmbH, Green TEG AG, Hi-Z Technology, Inc., Kryotherm and Ferrotec Nord Corporation.
On the basis of technology, the global thermoelectric modules market is segmented into single-stage and multi-stage segments. In 2014, single-stage thermoelectric modules were the most preferred, and accounted for around 85% of the overall thermoelectric modules market. However, multi-stage thermoelectric modules are expected to expand at a CAGR of 11.5% from 2015 to 2022. The most significant factor driving the market for multi-stage thermoelectric modules is the increasing demand for these modules in low-temperature applications where medium or small cooling capacity is required. The key applications of multi-stage thermoelectric modules include CCD arrays, analytical instruments, electro-optics, and IR detectors.
In terms of type of thermoelectric modules, the market is segmented into bulk, micro and thin film thermoelectric modules. In 2014, bulk thermoelectric modules segment held the largest revenue share of around 71% of the overall thermoelectric modules market. However, micro thermoelectric module segment is expected to grow at fastest rate in terms of revenue in the thermoelectric modules market during the forecast period from 2015 to 2022.
The global thermoelectric modules market is segmented based on applications of bulk, micro and thin film thermoelectric modules. Key applications of bulk thermoelectric modules include telecommunications, medical, aerospace, and industrial applications. Bulk thermoelectric modules, being the most common type of thermoelectric modules, dominated the global thermoelectric modules market in 2014. However, with the growing adoption of micro thermoelectric modules across different applications, this segment is expected to witness the highest growth during the forecast period. Key applications of thin film thermoelectric modules include consumer electronics, medical and laboratories, automotive, detectors and sensors and energy harvesting. Among different applications of thin film thermoelectric modules, in 2014, detectors and sensors accounted for around 37% share, in terms of revenue, of the global thin film thermoelectric module market.
