Automotive Electronics to Remain Attractive
The report studies the global power semiconductor market on the basis of component, material, end-use, and geography. Based on component, the market has been categorized into power MOSFET (metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor), thyristors, rectifiers, IGBT (insulated gate bipolar transistor), and diode. In terms of material, the power semiconductor market is bifurcatred into silicon/germanium, SiC, and GaN.
On the basis of end use, the market is classified into automotive, industrial, telecommunication, consumer electronics, aerospace & defense, healthcare, and others. Among these, automotive electronics accounts for significant consumption of power semiconductors. The number of semiconductors in vehicles have surged with the rising adoption of electric vehicles, plug-in electric vehicles, and hybrid electric vehicles. Further, the advent of drive-by-wire or x-by-wire technologies have led to a rise in number of electric content in vehicles over mechanical vehicle parts. This helps reduce vehicle weight which is directly related to improve fuel efficiency and reduce vehicular emission.

Rising Demand for Environment- friendly Vehicles Promotes Expansion of Power Semiconductor Market
Power semiconductor device refers to a semiconductor device utilized as a rectifier or switch in power electronics. These devices are widely used in many end-use industries including industrial, automotive, consumer electronics, telecommunication, healthcare, and aerospace and defense. Owing to this broad end-use application, the vendors working in the global power semiconductor market are expected to gain prodigious expansion avenues in the forthcoming years.
Generally, power semiconductor devices are used in commutation mode. So, there design is optimized for such type of use. Power semiconductors are widely used in systems delivering as tiny as a few tens of milliwatts required for a headphone amplifiers, up to approximately a gigawatt in a high voltage direct current transmission line.
In recent few years, major populace across the globe is growing preference toward the use of plug-in electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, and electric vehicles. As a result, there is extensive growth in the use of semiconductors in the automotive electronics industry. This scenario is creating prodigious expansion avenues in the global power semiconductor market.
The emergence of x-by-wire or drive-by-wire technologies has resulted into an increased number of electric content in vehicles instead of mechanical vehicle parts. The main reason behind this shift is the ability of electric content to assist in decreasing the vehicle weight, which can be directly associated with reducing vehicular emission and advancing fuel efficiency. Owing to this factor, the global power semiconductor market is slated to grow at promising pace in the years ahead.
The novel COVID-19 epidemic has resulted into negative growth curve of many industrial sectors including the global power semiconductor market. Many enterprises in the market for power semiconductor are experiencing sudden decline in demand and sales, and thereby dropped revenues. Thus, industry leaders are growing focus toward strategizing their business moves to come out of this critical situation. Several enterprises have started their production activities while following all government safety norms related to COVID-19. This scenario depicts that the global power semiconductor market will soon recover from this critical situation and gain promising growth opportunities in the years ahead.
