Due to their power efficiency characteristics, their applications are also growing in the power industry. The global power management integrated circuits market is expected to register a CAGR of 8.94% over the forecast period. Therefore, with so much of scope, Silicon carbide power integrated circuit market will grow significantly over the forecast period.
Asia Pacific Will Grow Significantly Over the Forecast Period in Silicon Carbide Power Semiconductor Market
Asia Pacific is estimated to dominate the market for SiC power semiconductor over the forecast period owing to increasing adoption of energy efficient projects and growing advancement in energy distribution system & Electric Vehicle (EV) infrastructure. The region is also dominating the global semiconductor market. The growing number of power projects coupled with the implementation of solar projects in the region is creating enormous demands for SiC power semiconductors. Feed-in tariff (FiT) schemes have been instrumental to solar PV growth, hence for SiC power semiconductor too, in Southeast Asia. In Thailand, which is by far the largest producer of solar energy in Southeast Asia due to strong government support, solar capacity has jumped in the past three years. Also, the growing government's solar energy initiative in Japan, India and China has led to an increasing need for solar power panels in the region. The region is also having the highest adoption EV models, as China is also the largest maker of electric vehicles. In 2016, it sold 507,000, including buses and commercial vehicles, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers. Hence, the region will grow significantly over the forecast period.
