Drivers and Restraints:
High Focus on Fast Charging Stations and EVs to Accelerate the Market Growth
Power electronics are finding widespread usage in EVs as these vehicles need high power electric energy to rotate electric motors. Power components, such as MOSFETS and IGBT, are used as power electronic switches in power train systems. These components can help reduce the overall size of these powertrains. Such advantages are predicted to positively impact the market outlook during the forecast period.
Expensive and Tedious Integration Process to Dampen the Power Electronics Industry Progress
Many leading organizations in the market are focusing on improving their integrated circuits in a single chip, which can result in the creation of complex designs. Furthermore, the process of integrating such technologies can become quite arduous and requires high investments. Integration of all the systems on a single chip increases complexity. The system also raises the need for decreasing the overall energy consumption, making it unsuitable for power-intensive applications. Such factors are expected to restrain the power electronics market growth during the analysis period.
North America to Boost its R&D Investment in Semiconductor Manufacturing
North America dominated the global power electronics market share and was valued at USD 11.43 billion in 2022 as the region started noticing strong growth in R&D spending to produce high-tech semiconductors. As per the Semiconductor Industry Association (SIA) report, in 2022, the American semiconductor sector was focused on increasing its investments to meet the long-term demand for chips. The total expenditure was estimated to be around USD 166 billion during the year.
Europe holds the second-largest market share as key players across the region are boosting their investments to improve technologies used to make power electronic devices.
Key Organizations to Deploy Innovative Technologies to Improve Processing Capacity
Leading organizations, such as Infineon Technologies, Texas Instruments, ROHM, and STMicroelectronics, are some of the top players in the global market. These companies are making advanced integrated circuits and using wide bandgap semiconductor materials, such as GaN and Sic, to enhance the efficacy and performance of power electronic devices. For example, in February 2022, Kubos Semiconductors Ltd. introduced the first commercial compact LED based on the cubic crystal phase of GaN.
Key Industry Development:
June 2021 – GE Electric announced plans to increase its solar and storage power electronics capacity by three times in 2022 to 9 GW every year. This capacity expansion was due to a strong rise in demand and increased backlog.
