DUBLIN, March 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Power Transistor Market 2016-2020"  report to their offering.

     (Logo: )

The global power transistor market to grow at a CAGR of 5.49% during the period 2016-2020. 

Global Power Transistor Market 2016-2020, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market. 

The 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.

According to the 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.

Further, the 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.

To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sale of the following power transistors: 

- Low-voltage FETs 
- Insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) modules 
- RF or microwave transistors 
- High-voltage FETs 
- IGBT transistors 
- Others, which include bipolar and Darlington 

Key vendors: 

- Fairchild Semiconductor 
- Infineon Technologies 
- International Rectifier 
- Mitsubishi Electric 
- STMicroelectronics 
- Texas Instruments
