The global market is in its growth stage, however, it contains great potential across many industry verticals. Electric power is an essential component in modern society; the absence of power supply will have devastating repercussions on human life. The transmission system is loaded to their limits and power trading with varying load patterns can contribute to an increasing congestion in urban cities. IGBT and Thyristor were developed to take advantage of the short switching times and low switching losses of the Metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) and higher breakdown voltage and low conduction losses of the Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT), to fulfill the demands of the current electric system.
In developed economies like North America and Europe, the refurbishment and replacement of aging power infrastructure are the major driving force behind the growth of the IGBT market. The European energy companies are the pioneers in harnessing energy from wind farms, hydro plant and solar panel with underground and underwater transmission lines. These applications are driving the market in the Europe.
The key drivers of the IGBT and Thyristor ecosystem are: aging power Infrastructure in developed geographical regions, demand replacement, increasing number of offshore wind farm and the government incentivization to establish HVDC grid, de-carbonization of power system and deployment of smart grid. The market, in spite of its exceptional demand; still has some restraints in its market growth. The key market restraints can be classified as: High Cost Factor, High Level of Expenditure, and lack of awareness. The high-tech power grid will increase power trading among the neighboring nations which would be a burning issue for the Global market in the days to come, while developments/advancements in power electronics would be a winning imperative for the existing as well as new entrance.
