Volume 5 | December 2011

According to a recent study by BBC Research, the global market for thermal management products, which currently stands at approximately $8 billion, is expected to grow over the next 5 years at a compound annual rate of 6.4%, totaling $10.9 billion by 2016.  The report attributes this rapid growth to the incorporation of advanced chips and other high-performance technologies into the ever-growing number of electronic consumer products.

With an estimated market share of 37%, North America will continue to occupy the number one position, followed by Asia Pacific with a market share of 23%-24%.  Thermal management hardware like fans, blowers and heat sinks comprises 84% of the total thermal management market and is expected to grow from $6.7 billion this year to $9.1 billion in 2016.

As marketers, it is easy to rely on our companies’ core strength in keeping pace with market growth.  Proprietary technologies and strategic alliances can definitely leverage a distinct competitive advantage; nevertheless, only a well constructed strategic marketing plan can give a company the competitive edge.

  • What channels will you utilize to reach your target market?
  • Have you allocated a substantial budget for a profitable ongoing campaign?
  • Which tools will measure your ROI?
