PUNE, India -- Global power transistor market report analysis shows a shift towards renewable energy sources to conserve electricity has accelerated the use of power transistors in renewable energy systems. The use of GaN semiconductors in solar power systems and electric vehicles can save considerable power. The analysts forecast global power transistor market to grow at a CAGR of 5.49% during the period 2016-2020
According to the power transistor market report, the greatest advantage of power transistors is their small size, as it allows them to be used in almost any electronic device. Global chip-making vendors such as Intel and TSMC are carrying out R&D activities that will result in shrinking the transistor by half or even more. Chip manufacturers are continuously looking at reducing the size of transistors so that they can be used across products with a smaller form factor.
Product Segmentation and Analysis of the Power Transistor Market - Low-voltage FETs, IGBT modules, RF and microwave power, high-voltage FET power and IGBT power
The low-voltage FET segment accounted for more than 40% of the market share during 2015. Low-voltage FETs are primarily used in consumer electronic devices like laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. Each of these devices has sales of at least a million units year-on-year, which has been driving the market for low-voltage FETs. Further, these are also required for the two-phase processors being preferred by OEMs. The two-phase design has four MOSFETs and is being installed in portable devices as they ensure lower power consumption and better efficiency.
During 2015, the APAC region was the largest revenue contributor in the global market, accounting for more than 55% of the market share. The growth of this region is attributed to the impressive growth in the production of consumer electronic goods in China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan. Consumer electronic goods are the largest users of power transistors.
The global power transistor market is highly competitive. The adoption of this product is spreading widely across different consumer segments with electronic capabilities. Vendors in this market compete on the basis of price, innovation, quality, and performance. The market is also fragmented due to the presence of a large number of small and large vendors.
Key players in the global power transistor market: Fairchild Semiconductor, Infineon Technologies, International Rectifier, Mitsubishi Electric, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments and Toshiba. Other prominent vendors in the market are: Cuprite, Champion Microelectronic, Diodes, Linear Integrated Systems, NXP Semiconductor, ON Semiconductor, Renesas Electronics, Semikron, Torex Semiconductors and Vishay.
Further, the power transistor market report states that the cyclical demand variations in the end-user markets and the industry-wide supply fluctuations pose a serious challenge to the growth of the market during the forecast period.
