The power electronics market is anticipated to witness a CAGR of 4.62% over the forecast period (2021 - 2026). The growing need for power-efficient products is one of the major factors driving the demand for power electronics products across all end-user industries. Therefore, the increasing need for energy-efficient products in markets, such as data centers, automotive, telecom infrastructure, and 5G devices, is becoming a major investor in the studied market. The growing adoption of power management ICs is also fuelling the demand for power electronics.

Over the last few years, power electronic products are integrated into all types of energy conversion applications. They are needed in all phases of the conversion process, from generation through transmission and, ultimately, consumption. Advancements in energy infrastructure, production of renewable energy, and energy-efficient portable electronics components drive the market growth at a higher rate. Silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) are particularly well-suited for power electronics use.
Power electronic vendors are also betting high on the renewable energy market. The recent trend of energy saving, in industries like data center and energy storage, and growing commercialization of 5G technology will offer a massive opportunity to electronic power vendors, especially in distribution centers and in communication applications. For instance, according to the Chinese Ministry of Information Technology (MIT), the country deployed over 700,000 5G base stations in 2020 and the country is expected to have 600 million subscribers by 2025, according to GSMA.
Further, the IGBT and MOSFET market will continue to increase, but part of the market will go to SiC, especially when talking about modules for EV/ HEV. Moreover, the demand for power MOSFET is supported by their growing use in replacing insulated-gate bipolar transistors and thyristors. Besides, the significant advantage of using power MOSFET in reinforcing the power efficiency of devices at low voltages is the increasing demand for the global power MOSFET market.
Also, trends in the automotive industry, like electric vehicle and autonomous vehicle, and increasing production of an electric vehicle is emerging as a significant driver for the power electronic market growth. Silicon carbide devices are already in use in the onboard battery chargers of electric buses, taxis, and lorries, as well as passenger cars. Power MOSFETs are used in electric and hybrid vehicles. Such trends are encouraging the manufacturers to develop innovative power electronics devices for automotive applications. For instance, Nexperia developed a new series of Trench 9 power MOSFETs, targeted primarily in the automotive industry.
Power semiconductor devices, including power discrete and power modules, are used extensively throughout automotive electronics systems. The pandemic-led shut down affected the automotive assembly plants for several weeks, first in China and then globally. Some automakers in China even slowed down their car sales due to insufficient supply of such components in Q4 2020. This is expected to hinder the growth of the market in the short term.
However, in the medium-term, vehicle sales rebound is expected due to the complete roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccine and improved treatment plans. As ADAS and electric and hybrid cars become more prevalent, the market for power semiconductors is expected to grow even further.

Key Market Trends
