IGCT enables a robust series connection between high power turn-off devices used for high power applications. Advantages such as high efficiency and low complexity make it a better option over GTO and IGBT, which exhibit an increase in adoption at present.
Benefits such as better performance of IGCT at higher temperature such as temperature ranges from -40 to 125 °C support the growth of the market. IGCT is used in industrial appliances and steel mills for controlling high power AC motors and AC grid interface, as well as the PWM switching. Therefore, this feature adds value to drive the demand for the IGCT market.
Low conduction loss as compared to GTO and IGBT, increased usage of power electronics in renewable energy sources, and low price majorly drive the market. Despite such advantages, bulky structure of thyristor and complex manufacturing process tends to impede the growth of this market. In the near future, use of power semiconductor devices in hybrid vehicles and invention of the high-power technology (HPT) platform are factors expected to create lucrative opportunities for the key players operating in the IGCT market.
The market is segmented into type, application, and region. Based on type, it is categorized into asymmetric IGCT, reverse blocking IGCT, and reverse conducting IGCT. The application segment is divided into drives, traction, converter, and others. Based on region, the market is analyzed across North America, Europe, and LAMEA.
