“The power electronics market for gallium nitride (GaN) is expected to grow at a highest rate during the forecast period”
The market for gallium nitride (GaN) is expected to grow at the highest rate between 2016 and 2022. GaN has various features such as a wider band gap, high break-down voltage, larger critical electric field, and higher thermal conductivity. These features assist in providing higher voltages and high switching frequencies, handling higher power density, and offering enhanced power efficiency than the pure silicon (Si), Silicon Carbide (SiC), and sapphire substrate wafer technology-based devices. Hence, the power electronics market for GaN is expected to grow at a faster rate than the other materials.
“Power IC is expected to hold the largest share during the forecast period”
The power integrated circuits (IC) is expected to hold the largest share of the power electronics market during 2016–2022. Power ICs are suitable for high-frequency range, high power amplification, and microwave radiation applications. The large market share of IC based on device type segment in power electronics market can be attributed to the increasing demand of power ICs from the RF industry, specifically in the case of monolithic microwave integrated circuits MMICs for high-frequency power amplification.
“APAC to hold the largest market and also grow at the highest rate in the power electronics market”
Asia-Pacific (APAC) is expected to hold the largest share of the power electronics market during 2016–2022. This region is home to many established power electronics manufacturing companies such as Renesas Electronics Corp. (Japan) and Mitsubishi Electric Corp. (Japan) among others. The power electronics market in APAC is expected to grow at a high rate during the forecast period. The APAC region has emerged as a strong manufacturing hub with leading manufacturers of consumer goods increasing their manufacturing activities in this region.
