The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Functional consolidation of semiconductor devices.

The trend toward digitalization can be seen in industries that push digital control of power to make inverters, drive controls, and other electrical equipment compatible to Industrial Internet. As a result, the integration of other semiconductor components such as sensors, ICs, and microcontrollers with IGBT devices can happen for efficient and easier control.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increase in demand for electric and hybrid electric vehicles. Government initiatives for controlling rising environmental concerns and volatile oil prices are helping accelerate the shift to electric vehicles.

It is estimated that EVs and HEVs can reduce the oil consumption by more than one-third by 2020 as electricity is cheap and provides a big cost advantage over gasoline and petroleum. Electric vehicles are more energy-efficient as they convert about 60% of the electrical energy from the grid to power wheels, whereas their counterparts only convert around 20% of the electrical energy to power at the wheels.

Electric motors provide quiet, smooth operations and require less maintenance than combustion engines.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Wide bandgap (WBG) semiconductor materials. Wide bandgap semiconductors materials allow devices to perform at high voltage, high temperature, and higher switching frequencies.

WBG materials such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) have good thermal conductivity, and these can be exploited in power semiconductor devices. These are considered more efficient than the existing silicon devices because operating at high temperature eliminates the need for outer cooling, and higher switching frequencies result in lesser noise.

In addition, these materials can achieve a significant reduction in switching loss. The ampere capacity of SiC is superior to Si.

A single 150mm SiC wafer can swap current equal to two 200mm silicon wafers. The use of these materials will significantly improve energy efficiency and will reduce system costs, which cannot be attained while using silicon-based IGBT devices.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry. The report contains a comprehensive market and vendor landscape in addition to a SWOT analysis of the key vendors.
About IGBT

Insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) is a semiconductor power device that is used to control the electrical energy. It provides a stable supply of electricity by reducing the congestion in power supply, leading to optimized power utilization.

It is an electronic switch that provides fast switching with electrical efficiency. It is a fusion of bipolar junction transistor (BJT) and power MOSFET (metal oxide semiconductor field effect transistor).

IGBTs have the high current handling capability of BJT and high switching speed of power MOSFETs, making it a better device than other transistors. It is also known by names such as bipolar mode MOSFET, conductivity modulated field effect transistor (COMFET), and bipolar MOS transistor.
