Market Overview

The Global Field Effect General Purpose Transistors Market is expected to witness growth at a CAGR of 4.87% over the forecast period (2022- 2027). The COVID-19 outbreak has had a significant impact on the global economy. Many end-user industries have been affected, including semiconductors. A large part of the manufacturing process of electronic components includes work on the factory floor, where people are in close contact as they collaborate to boost productivity. Many manufacturing factories were shut down worldwide to contain the spread of COVID-19. For instance, many semiconductor manufacturing facilities were shut down due to government mandates in countries like Malaysia, China, Malaysia, and the Philippines. This impacted their ability to supply products to their clients and created a gap in demand and supply.

  • The growing use of electronic devices such as Television, Mobile devices, and Electric Vehicles favorably boosts market development. FETs are extensively used in Integrated Circuits (ICs) due to their compact size.

Moreover, it can be used as an inverter in electronic circuits.
  • Advance medical devices are the key to modernizing the quality of care for patients. With the increase of the health care market, super-specialty hospitals are using ultra-modern reliable equipment in their treatment process. Non-intrusive imaging of the body empowers the specialist to perform operations while minimizing harm to neighboring tissue and organs. Field Effect General Purpose Transistors have been utilized in CT and MRI scanners to control the gantry on which the patient is leaning. They are also used in the power supply for X-ray and ultrasound machines.
  • In January 2022, Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation announced that the company had launched 11 new generations of general-purpose high-voltage 600V Super Junction Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors (SJ MOSFETs). The company has already released product samples and plans to begin mass production of them in March 2022.
  • Further, in May 2022, Efficient Power Conversion Corp (EPC) of El Segundo, CA, USA – which makes enhancement-mode gallium nitride on silicon (eGaN) power field-effect general purpose transistors and integrated circuits for power management applications has expanded its selection of low-voltage, off-the-shelf gallium nitride transistors with the introduction of the EPC2066 (0.8mΩ typical, 40V) GaN FET.

Key Market Trends

Rising Demand for High-energy and Power-efficient Devices in the Automotive Industry

  • As the automobile industry has increasingly used electronic components and systems in recent years to make cars that are lighter in weight and achieve fuel efficiency, the use of electronic control units (ECUs) has advanced. The transition from power steering systems that use conventional oil pressure control to DC motors that use ECU and similarly in transitioning halogen bulbs to discharge bulbs that now use electronically ballast devices are also making the MOSFETs market grow because MOSFETs are used as the switching device in ECUs. Additionally, the trend of hybrid, electric, and fuel-cell vehicles indirectly makes the field-effect general-purpose transistor market grow.
  • In May 2022, Magnachip Semiconductor Corporation (Magnachip) announced that the company had released a new 40V general purpose Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor (MOSFET) to control Brushless Direct Current (BLDC) motors for automotive applications.
  • With the increased adoption of Electric vehicles and Hybrid vehicles, automotive is one of the rising segments of the Field Effect General Purpose Transistor industry. It is expected to have a significant share in the market. Innovations like autonomous car technology, regenerative braking, and the integration of various sensors have raised the demand for Field-Effect General Purpose Transistors.
  • Additionally, government rules requiring advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) have supported the segment's growth. Electronic components in the automobile sector are vital for safety and are exposed to high voltages and extreme conditions. Manufacturers have responded by creating a new range of Field Effect General Purpose Transistors for automotive applications.
  • Further, in May 2022, in Mexico, BMW planned to add electric vehicles. BMW is investing one billion USD in Mexico, and the assembly factory could become the automaker's next exclusive electric car manufacturing facility. The increase in the manufacturing of electric cars boosts the studied market.
