Global Super-junction MOSFET Market 2016-2020
About Super-Junction MOSFETs
Super-junction MOSFETs are a key innovation in high-voltage MOSFET technology. They offer better features such as reduced gate capacitance, reduced on-resistant of the circuit [RDS(on)], and lower output charge with reduced die size. Super-junction MOSFETs have a significantly low gate and output capacitance. Super-junction MOSFETs are currently available in a variety of packages, with body diode characteristics and voltage ratings to meet different application requirements. Thus, they are increasingly being used in high-voltage switching convertors, allowing efficient switching at any given frequency.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global super-junction MOSFET market to grow at a CAGR of 13.42% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global super-junction MOSFET market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of super-junction MOSFETs only.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Super-Junction MOSFET Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global super-junction MOSFET market: Fairchild Semiconductor, Infineon Technologies, STMicroelectronics, Toshiba, and Vishay Intertechnology.
Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Alpha & Omega Semiconductor, Fuji Electric, NXP Semiconductors, ON Semiconductor, and Rohm.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Increase in global data center traffic will be a key trend for market growth. Data traffic due to increasing use of mobile computing devices, increasing penetration of cloud computing, and virtual computing has increased the global data traffic. Public and private businesses are using cloud computing to supplement their internal infrastructure and applications, resulting in increased complexity in managing data centers. Data centers are increasingly using high-performance power discrete semiconductor components such as super-junction power MOSFETs to support cloud computing. Super-junction MOSFETs enable data centers to use higher levels of power and wider bandwidth.”
According to the report, growing demand for super-junction MOSFETs in TVs will be a key driver for market growth. The new age TVs include better features such as better picture quality and new age smart features such as web-browsing with additional capabilities of Wi-Fi connectivity, access to the app store for a number of applications such as You-Tube and Netflix for online streaming of movie and TV shows, and social-networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter. Some of the features include the introduction of 3D displays that make viewing more intuitive and the provision for viewing 3D content on 3D flat panel TVs. With advances in technology, there is an increased need for smaller sized power supplies that can easily fit in flat TVs to reduce switching losses and increase system efficiency and reliability. The deployment of super-junction MOSFETs in flat TVs make them smaller, thinner, and super-efficient.
Further, the report states that the global super-junction MOSFETs market is highly dependent on the sales of electronic devices. The rising and falling demand for electronic products, such as consumer electronic devices and mobile devices, makes forecasting of the semiconductor market difficult. This leads to oversupply or undersupply of super-junction MOSFETs. These demand fluctuations in the market are unavoidable and may result in inventory pileup in the supply chain, delayed time-to-market, and reduced profitability of the vendors operating in the global super-junction MOSFET market. Thus, the cyclical demand variations in the end-user markets, as well as the industry-wide supply fluctuations will pose a grave challenge to the growth of the market during the forecast period.
