Power electronics is considered as one of the most vibrant sector owing to its presence, usage, and overlap with many other industry verticals. There is an extremely high surge in the market for power electronics devices; and the applications in which these devices can be employed. The credit for power electronics becoming such a vast industry goes to the continuous advancements in the technology.

The companies invest most of their revenues in R&D so as to make the concerned improvements in their technology. Also, the supply chain in this industry is a major supporting factor that has helped the power electronics industry to reach new heights. Another important role of power electronics, which is getting a strong emphasis recently, is the associated energy saving. Many companies are taking initiatives to intensify their R&D practices, to save energy with the help of modern power electronics devices and systems.

The power electronics market is divided into four segments; namely substrate wafer technology, power electronic devices, applications, and geography. The substrate wafer technology includes the differentiation of materials based on the type of end solutions. These solutions are divided into three sub segments that include high end, middle end, and low end solutions. The materials discussed include GaN, SiC, Silicon, and Sapphire.

The GaN and SiC contribute to the high end solutions, followed by SiC and Silicon that contribute to form the middle end solutions; and, finally, Silicon and Sapphire form the low end solution. Power electronic devices are sub-segmented as the power electronic ICs, power modules, and power discrete devices. This device market gives an in-depth analysis of each and every aspect of the device. Additionally, the components such as IGBT, transistors, and thyristors are also very well explained.

The applications market covers the major applications of power electronics,which are divided into seven segments; namely ICT applications, industrial, power, automotive, aerospace & defense, and others'. The others' segment gives a brief understanding of the applications used in other industry verticals such as medical, retail, and photovoltaic.
