Timing Devices Market Size, Trends & Growth (2021 - 2026)

The timing device is a specialized type of watch used to measure the interval of time elapsed in hours, minutes, seconds, and fraction of a second. Small timekeeping devices are pocket instruments with mechanical and hand movements, especially for displaying elapsed time. Timer devices are widely used in the consumer electronics industry for portable and portable electronic devices because they have low power consumption, a high degree of stability, and accuracy.

Timing devices are instruments used for the purpose of measuring elapsed time intervals in segments such as hour, minute, second, and fraction of a second. Small timekeeping devices are made like pocket instruments and wrist instruments, usually with mechanical movements and in terms of hands to show elapsed time. Large center table timing devices and panel mounted units are manufactured, including demo timers. In reality, timing devices work electrically with some kind of digital display 1 billion by 2027, with a compound annual rate of 6.1% during the analysis period 2020-2027. Oscillators, one of the segments analyzed in the report, is expected to register a compound annual rate of 6.7% and reach US $ 2.3 billion at the end of the analysis period. Due to the economic crisis caused by COVID-19, the growth of the resonator segment has been revised to 6.1% for the foreseen period.

Recent Developments:

  • Microchip Technology MCHP recently announced the acquisition of Tekron International Limited to increase its offerings in the Frequency and Timing Systems business division.
  • Microchip Technology Inc. (Nasdaq: MCHP) announced the acquisition of Tekron International Limited, a world leader in providing high-precision GPS and atomic clock timing technologies and solutions for smart grid and other industrial applications. The terms of the agreement are confidential.
  • Kyocera Corporation (President: Hideo Tanimoto) announced that it has successfully developed a proprietary technology to produce MEMS silicon resonators for the silicon MEMS market.


In response to the Coronavirus crisis, much of the electronics market faces the challenge of balancing supply chain with demand, due to depressed end-market demand. In addition, due to the expansion of quarantine orders in major economies to minimize the impact of coronaviruses, the production of electronic components, such as timing devices, as well as supply end users, is stopped. The virus outbreak has required quarantined travel bans, uncertainty in the stock market, and falling business confidence. However, technology providers try to remain committed to their partners and focus on long-term investments. The integration of emerging technologies such as 5G, IoT and high-performance computing should be critical for a global rebound in the electronics industry. Prices of raw materials needed to make time devices are expected to rise, due to gaps in the supply chain. Also, due to the crisis scenario, the global revenue generated by the sync device market is expected to decline in the coming months. On the contrary, the use of stopwatches in smart medical facilities such as endoscopes and ultrasound equipment should be lucrative for the healthcare industry.

Drivers and Restraints of Timing Devices Market:


The increasing use of these devices in automotive electronics is expected to drive the global timing device market during the forecast period. They are used in car navigation systems, audiovisual equipment in vehicles, safety control systems, and driving control systems. These are also used in Big Data Cloud applications due to their ability to interact with commonly used storage ICs, better synchronization, and improved system optimization. Most of these devices are temperature sensitive and difficult to design.


The cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry acts as a factor preventing the market for timing devices from reaching its full potential. The biggest challenge MEMS oscillators face is that they synthesize the output frequency of only a few MEMS resonator designs. The presence of a PLL between the MEMS resonator and the output does not actually generate a good quality signal like the quartz-based design. This acts as a restraining factor in the growth of the global Timing Devices market.
