To represent and promote the common interests of the Passive Components Manufacturers active in Europe to ensure an open and transparent market for Passive Components in Europe as part of the global market place.
Passive Components are an independent and thriving industry
Passive component manufacturers play a key role in the development of the electronics industry and more globally in the development of the e-society in Europe and the rest of the world. Every new function, every new semiconductor, generates new requirements in volume and performance for passive components. Supported by several large companies, a great number of SMEs (small and medium-sized enterprises), national associations and technological research institutes, the passive component industry has accumulated a considerable competence and know-how over the years. Electronic systems and equipment, as well as electronic components, are undergoing crucial changes. Increasing performance and miniaturisation are becoming standard requirements. European industry has been able to face up to these challenges successfully.
