INTRODUCTION

The global market for insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) has been growing at a rate of 8.5% annually, mainly driven by growth in the power transmission sector and the industrial electrical and electronics sector. The Asia-Pacific region, North America and Europe primarily drive the market.

The IGBT market is broadly divided into two types: discrete and modular packages.

Rising electricity demand is primarily driving this market. IGBTs comprise a segment of the power semiconductor industry. The increase in the demand for power transmission across long distances and increased investments on smart grids and power infrastructure are the key drivers of this market.

Infineon, ABB Semiconductors, Fuji Electric, IXYS, Semikron, Littlefuse and Renesas are some of the key participants in the IGBT market.

The Asia-Pacific region, followed by North America and Europe, dominates the global IGBT market. IGBT sales are on the rise due to an increase in the power transmission, renewable energy, industrial electrical and electronics, automotive, locomotive, aerospace and defense, and consumer electronics industries.

This report also highlights the supplier landscape, with a focus on detailed profiles of major companies.
