EPCIA is the only platform for passive components manufacturers being active in Europe, from capacitors, resistors and inductors to electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) products, and surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters. EPCIA represents, promotes and defends the vital interests of all passive component manufacturers present in Europe and to help them remain competitive and viable in the global market place.

Who is eligible?

In order to be eligible for EPCIA membership, applicant organisations must be present in the European Union or Switzerland as one of the following:

  • companies manufacturing & selling passive components
  • national associations representing such companies
  • technological research institutes active in the field of passive components

Membership benefits

Members of EPCIA have access to the EPC-eStat, the European Passive Components Statistics, where currently 30 companies actively participate. It is the only representative and comprehensive passive components statistic programme in Europe, covering capacitors (alu, film, ceramic, tantalum, etc.), resistors (linear and non-linear), as well as inductors and EMC products.

In addition, EPCIA participates in the World Passive Components Trade Statistic (WPTS) and has full access to corresponding reports, covering market trends in Japan, China, the Americas, EMEA and the Asia-Pacific region. EPCIA members meet twice a year, usually in spring and autumn, and hold a half-day meeting with intensive discussions, presentations and guest speeches related to the passive components industry.

During the EPCIA spring meeting, members typically examine market developments of the last three years and discuss trends for capacitors, resistors, inductors and EMC products in Europe based on the results of the EPC-eStat data.

Presentations from guest speakers at EPCIA meetings tend to cover new developments, especially in the field of mobility, energy and the overall electronics industry.
