The increased production volume of thin film chip resistors, especially in Taiwan and China, will continue to create increasingly larger economies of scale and lower average unit pricing, which will in turn make thin film chips more in line with traditional thick film
pricing (Many in China feel we have already reached that point of parity in price).
The analysts forecast the Global Thick Film
Devices market to grow at a CAGR of 13.
The technology involved a novel screen-printing process package using thick film
circuits as the basic technology.
However, it was not the purpose of our review to examine the value of the thick film
versus the thin film.
