A power semiconductor device is used as a switch (controlling power on or off) or rectifier (converting AC to DC) in power electronics, for example, in frequency conversion home appliance, EVs, EV chargers, welding inverter, industrial robots, etc. As of 2019, Power semiconductors was a US$41bn global market, or c.10% of global semiconductor market size.

Power semiconductors could be divided into two parts: (1) Power discrete and (2) Power IC, with each parts roughly contributing 50% of the power semiconductors market size by revenue. When a power semiconductor device is in the form of integrated circuit, it is called Power IC, otherwise referred to as a power discrete.

Power semiconductors is a US$41bn market globally, and within this market, we are positive on IGBTs and MOSFETs, given the growing market driven by (1) rising energy efficiency requirement in multiple applications such as EV, industrial control, and home appliances, and (2) the rising demand for Chinese suppliers driven by a large domestic market and multiple Chinese brands in home appliances, automobiles and industrial look to diversify their supply chains amid growing trade tensions.

The global IGBT leaders usually cover a full range of applications from consumer electronics, automotive, and industrial controls, to power generation, infrastructure, and railway. Each of these sectors is analyzed in the report.

The global MOSFET leaders usually cover the full range of applications from consumer electronics, automotive, computing, motor driver, power supply, telecom network, EV charging, LED lighting, to medical. Each of these sectors is analyzed in the report.

The rapid growth of the power semiconductor market in recent years has been driven by the proliferation of computer and consumer electronics, such as desktop computers, notebooks, netbooks, smartphones, flat panel displays and portable media players that require sophisticated power management to improve power efficiency and extend battery life.

This report analyzes and forecasts the worldwide markets of power semiconductors by type, geographic region and application. The market by substrate type also focuses on new SiC and GaN materials and fabrication.
