Global IGBT And Thyristor Market to Surpass USD 6.9 Billion By 2027

June 29, 2020

As per the report titled ‘IGBT and Thyristor Market Forecast to 2027 - COVID-19 Impact and Global Analysis by IGBT Packaging Type; IGBT Power Rating; IGBT Application; Thyristor Application (Power Transmission Systems, Motor Controllers, Light Dimmers, Pressure Control Systems, Liquid-Level Regulators, Others)’, available with Market Study Report LLC, global IGBT and thyristor market is projected to accrue USD 6.96 billion, registering a CAGR of 4.1% over 2020-2027.

As per the report, global IGBT and thyristor market is slated to witness substantial growth on account of ongoing replacement of old power infrastructure, especially in developed countries, and the rising adoption of smart grid systems. Thyristors are used in power electronics to fulfill the demand for solid-state switching devices. Moreover, owing to increasing population, the demand for electricity is also increasing; hence adding significant traction to the market growth. IGBTs and thyristors are used to minimize switching losses and decrease switching times of metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) to match current electricity demands. Furthermore, they integrate low conduction losses and high breakdown voltage in bipolar junction transistors (BJTs) to suffice high electricity demands. Moreover, IGBTs and thyristors are gaining popularity as they reduce thermal stress, in turn, increasing lifespan of electric devices, and offer high external thermal performance along with efficiency.
