Swedish term or phrase: insatsvaror
The dictonary calls them "input goods" but Google finds less than 20,000 hits.

Any reason why not to call it a "component"?

input goods
Explanation:
The definition of "input goods" includes all production materials and even electricity, gas, fuel, small parts, trimmings, etc. Everything that you puchase for your production. It is more a financial term than a technical one. "Components" are defined parts, and "production materials" are materials only.
