Research and Markets: Global Power Discrete Market Forecasts & Opportunities, 2018
DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/s8nt9d/global_power)
has announced the addition of the "Global
Power Discrete Market Forecasts & Opportunities, 2018"
report to their offering.
The growth of the Global Power Discrete market is driven by several
factors, including the high demand for discrete IGBTs. Discrete IGBTs
enable increased efficiency in electronic devices ranging from consumer
electronics to several high power electronic applications. They play a
major role in the technological advancement of power electronics.
The emerging market for SiC and GaN power semiconductors is expected to
drive the Global Power Discrete market during the forecast period. SiC
power semiconductors comprise SiC MOSFET, SiC JFET, SiC BJT, and SiC
Schottky diodes. Currently, SiC is widely used in the development of
power semiconductors; however, GaN is a wide bandgap material that
offers similar performance benefits to SiC but has greater
cost-reducton potential, and the market for GaN power semiconductors is
expected to grow rapidly in the coming years. In addition, GaN can be
made available using existing silicon substrates, which can enable mass
production and reduced cost. Power semiconductors using next-generation
materials such as SiC and GaN are characterized to have lower energy
loss, high-speed switching, and higher heat resistance than
conventionally-used silicon. The adoption of SiC and GaN power
semiconductors is expected to witness a significant increase,
particularly in the EV/HEV and Industrial Motor Drive segments.
Further, the report states that the demand for power discrete
semiconductors is dependent on the growth of various customer segments
including the EV/HEV, Renewable Energy, Industrial Motor Drive, and LED
Lighting segments. In recent years, the Industrial Motor Drive segment
has been witnessing a slowdown because of several factors such as the
sluggish economic recovery in the US, the natural disasters occurring in
Japan, and the Eurozone debt crisis.
