The global power MOSFET market is expected to witness a highly promising growth in the coming years of the forecast period. MOSFET is a type of power semiconductor. It is used primarily as an electronic switch. One of the key reasons behind the increasing popularity of MOSFETs is that they are a highly cost effective solution for replacing bipolar junction transistor (BJT). MOSFET is more compatible with circuits with high current as well as voltage as compared to BJTs. It helps in enabling power management in order to improve the overall conservation of energy in several applications such as electric vehicle, consumer electronic, and industrial systems among others. Currently, MOSFETs are used as in electric vehicles and renewable resources so as to optimize their switching speeds and avoid loss of power.
Increasing demand for compact automation solutions, improved durability and efficiency have helped in increasing the rate of uptake of power MOSFET market. Energy & power, consumer electronics, and other prominent applications are some of the key application segments with higher adoption rate of power MOSFETs. Thus, the global market for power MOSFETs is experiencing a decent growth in the coming years of the forecast period. The market is expected to witness increased adoption because of the its improved durability and compact size.
