Global Thyristor Market 2016-2020

About the Thyristor Market

Thyristors are solid-state switches. They are power semiconductor devices that involve the use of high currents and voltages. The four-layer silicon semiconductor controls the flow of electric current, switches high voltages, and protects electronic devices from damaging voltage transients. Thyristors are very useful for the long-distance transmission of electricity.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global thyristor market to grow at a CAGR of 7.16% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Thyristor Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the Global Thyristor Market: ABB, Infineon Technologies, Mitsubishi Electric, and ON Semiconductor.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Fairchild Semiconductor, Hitachi, Semikron International, STMicroelectronics, and Toshiba.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Many developed and developing countries have announced investments in smart grids due to aging power infrastructure. Smart grids employ modern electronic systems for advanced T&D of power through the grid. The growing demand for a low carbon emission power system has led to the growth of renewable energy such as wind, solar, geothermal, and hydropower. This rise in demand will drive the market for thyristors during the forecast period.”

According to the report, the aging power infrastructure in developing nations needs upgrading to incorporate technological advances in the transmission and distribution (T&D) of electricity. Rising global population and urbanization have resulted in increased demand for electricity, especially in developing nations. Thyristors are used in the inverters to convert electricity to drive an AC appliance. Also, the establishment of offshore wind farms will drive the global thyristors market during the forecast period because of their ability to generate more energy using fewer turbines.

Further, the report states that low adoption in low-power and medium-power applications can hinder the market growth.
