It is used in automotive, consumer electronics, industrial, military and aerospace sectors.

Market Growth Drivers:

Growing demand from automotive and consumer appliance industries is a major driver for the global power semiconductor market:

Semiconductor sales for automotive applications are primarily determined by vehicle sales volume and the degree of vehicle digitalization and electrification. Hybrid electric vehicles (HEV) and electric vehicles (EV) are essential in terms of power semiconductor demand because they comprise more semiconductors than combustion-engine vehicles. Power semiconductors are used in consumer electronics, such as video games, televisions and watches. The current demand for gaming devices, audio equipment, and some kitchen appliances has increased, especially in the post-pandemic period.   

Increasing technological complexity and growing costs are expected to restrain the global power semiconductor market:

Over the forecast period, the increasing technological complexity and growing costs are expected to prevent the growth of the global market. Semiconductors, particularly power semiconductors, have quickly become a requirement for nearly every electronic device imaginable and in recent years, they've enabled artificial intelligence and machine learning. Although many governments encourage semiconductor growth, new fabs intended through comprehensive R&D require billions of dollars in investment. Since the semiconductor industry has a consistent track record of technological advancement, its companies must maintain their competitive edge in all sectors. 

The advancement in material technologies employed in power semiconductors is expected to generate new opportunities for the global market:

New power semiconductors are specialized transistors using various competitive technologies such as GaN, SiC and silicon. GaN and SiC are both wide-bandgap technologies, which means they are more efficient and faster than silicon-based devices. Several vendors are releasing the next generation of power semiconductors relying on gallium nitride (GaN) and silicon carbide (SiC).

Environmental pollution associated with semiconductor production is expected to present challenges for the global market:

Demand for silicon chips, which are found in everything from smart devices and television sets to wind turbines, is increasing but at a high cost of a massive carbon footprint. Fluorinated compounds with a high global warming potential (GWP) are used to manufacture power semiconductors. Though power semiconductors are a must-have for developing digital and communication technologies, the heavy pollution caused by varied aspects of the industry is creating major challenges for the growth of the global power semiconductors market.

COVID-19 Impact Analysis

The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic created obstacles to the growth of the power semiconductor market. The pandemic completely affected the power semiconductor sector's fundamentals, including customer behavior, business revenues and corporate operations. The impact of the pandemic on individual application segments was even more complex. With much uncertainty ahead in the post-pandemic period, power semiconductor firms will benefit from developing multiple future scenarios, each with a different macroeconomic and virus-related outcome, as they plan their strategy for the coming years.

Recent Developments in the Industry:

  1. In March 2022, Toshiba Corporation Toshiba recently launched two new silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFET Dual Modules with a voltage rating of 1200V and 1700V.
  2. In February 2022, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation launched the SLIMDIP-X power semiconductor module with low thermal resistance and noise for home-appliance inverter systems. It would reduce the size of inverter systems in air conditioners, washing machines, and refrigerators.
  3. In March 2022, NXP Semiconductors N.V. launched a new series of RF power discrete solutions for 32T32R active antenna systems, using its latest exclusive gallium nitride (GaN) technology. With the expansion of the 5G network company wants to cater to network operators' requirement of extending their coverage while maintaining performance.
