Power Semiconductor Market Analysis

The Power Semiconductor Market size is estimated at USD 41.81 billion in 2023 and is expected to reach USD 49.23 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 3.66% during the forecast period (2023-2028).

  • Vehicle electrification, carbon emission reduction goals, and clean energy production significantly accelerated the power semiconductor industry's growth. Demand is expected to increase rapidly over the coming years, driving technology changes and investment in production capacity. Power devices are found in various applications as discrete devices, power modules, or combined with IC functionalities. It includes industrial motor drives, wind turbines, photovoltaic (PV) installations, trains, UPS, electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, and home appliances.
  • Power transistors, such as MOSFETs and IGBTs, help in the rapid dissipation of heat, prevent overheating, and minimize carbon dioxide emissions and the cost of electricity. Owing to these advantages, they form a crucial component of several electronic products. Due to the increasing worldwide population and usage of fossil fuels, there is a rising demand for power-efficient electronic devices.
  • Furthermore, embedded and application processors and other components in complex systems need multiple power rails and domains. Using discrete devices for power management in these systems can be costly. Power management integrated circuits (PMICs), which integrate multiple voltage regulators and control circuits into a single chip, are highly suitable for implementing complete power supply solutions. They reduce component count and board space while easily and cost-effectively managing system power.
  • However, SiC devices are challenged with their driving requirements. Though the primary goal of SiC-based devices is to replace IGBT, the driving requirements vastly vary for these two devices. Most transistors include driving requirements using symmetric rails (such as ±5V). On the other hand, SiC devices need asymmetric rails (such as -1V to -20V) due to the requirement of a small negative voltage to ensure that they are fully off. It could challenge their application in portable equipment as additional DC-DC drivers or specialized batteries with three connections (+, 0V, and-) are needed. Such factors might restrict market growth.
  • The pandemic accelerated digital transformation across industries and sped up the adoption of digital technologies by several years. The rising adoption of emerging technologies like AI and IoT creates a positive growth outlook for the market for power semiconductors. The pandemic also accelerated the adoption of IoT, which positively impacted the market.

  • Power electronics are becoming increasingly common in EVs, requiring high-power energy to rotate electric motors. Power components like MOSFETs and IGBT are power electronic switches in power train systems. The significant market growth can be attributed to the rising demand for energy-efficient hybrid electric vehicles in several nations, including India, China, Japan, and others, to reduce the effects of rising environmental pollution.
  • Additionally, it is anticipated that the government's initiatives to achieve carbon neutrality goals by 2060 will boost demand for power electronics by capitalizing on the expansion of other markets, such as those for electric vehicles. According to China's Development Plan for the New Energy Automobile Industry (2021-2035), EVs could include a 25% market share by 2025. As a result, China is taking more aggressive measures to encourage the purchase of EVs. It is expected to accelerate the development of power electronics for their widespread use in EVs.
  • In addition, Japan's power electronics market is rapidly growing due to developments in several industries. It includes transportation, renewable energy, and other fields where power electronics contain many applications. As a result, it is anticipated that the Japanese automotive industry, which is expanding quickly due to demand for electric vehicles, will be the primary driver of opportunities for power electronics in the region.
  • Several local governments are also working hard to promote renewable energy sources usage. It is anticipated to boost the market for power electronics as these devices find numerous uses in the energy sector. For instance, the Indian government announced plans in April 2023 to add 250 GW of renewable energy capacity over the following five years to meet its goal of 500 GW of clean energy by 2030. These initiatives are expected to increase the industry demand for Power electronics.
