DUBLIN, December 15, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Discrete Semiconductors Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.


The global discrete semiconductors market to grow at a CAGR of 4.61% in terms of revenue over the period 2014-2019.

Untill 2014, the the market generated the majority of its revenue from APAC owing to the growing number of players and increased demand for discrete semiconductors within this region. Countries such as Japan, China, Taiwan, and South Korea were the key contributors in APAC. APAC was followed by EMEA and the Americas. 

With technological advances and market maturation, certain emerging trends such as high-powered electronic devices will shape the future of the global discrete semiconductors market. Energy efficiency is one of the key issues facing the market and discrete semiconductor devices can offer a solution to this problem. Thus, with consistent improvement in technology and efficiency, these devices are expected to fulfil the increasing demand.

According to the report, increasing demand for hybrid and electric vehicles is the main driver of the global discrete semiconductors market. Demand and production of electric vehicles has seen an exponential rise since 2010, and is likely to follow the same trend during the forecast period due to depleting fossil fuel reserves.

Further, the report states that one key challenge to the growth of this market is the high cost of discrete power semiconductors, which generate most of the market revenue.

This report covers the current scenario and the growth prospects of the global discrete semiconductors market during 2015-2019. To calculate the market size, the report considers revenue generated through the sales of discrete semiconductor devices worldwide.
