This global market research report provides a comprehensive analysis of the power transistor market by product (low-voltage FETs, IGBT modules, high-voltage FET, and IGBT power). It outlines the market shares for key regions such as the Americas, APAC, and EMEA. The prominent vendors analyzed in this report are Fairchild Semiconductor, Infineon Technologies, International Rectifier, Mitsubishi Electric, STMicroelectronics, Texas Instruments, and Toshiba.

Overview of power transistor market

Technavio’s market research analyst predicts the global power transistor market to grow at a CAGR of more than 5% during the forecast period. The growing demand for power-efficient electronic devices has been driving the growth of this market. Power conservation mandates such as the one by the Obama government in 2008 and the twelfth five-year plan from China have indicated that there is a need to cut down on power usage and to ensure that power is used efficiently and effectively. Power transistors improve switch performance and efficiency while enhancing system reliability and robustness, thereby increasing the power efficiency of electronic products. The higher efficiency of power conversion lowers CO2 emissions and electricity costs, thereby accelerating the demand for power transistors.

The development of GaN transistors is also expected to aid market growth by the end of 2020. Cambridge Electronics, a spinoff of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, has launched a line of GaN transistors with the promise of reducing power consumption in electronic devices by nearly 20%. The new GaN transistors have at least one-tenth the resistance of silicon transistors, making them far more energy efficient. Further, new fabrication technologies are being used in which gold materials are switched with materials compatible with silicon fabrication and develop a technique to deposit GaN on the large wafers used in silicon foundries. These GaN power transistors are being used to develop laptop power adapters of about 1.5 cubic inches in volume and ensure better power electronics for data centers, which consume much electricity

Product segmentation and analysis of the power transistor market

  • Low-voltage FETs
  • IGBT modules
  • RF and microwave power
  • high-voltage FET power
  • IGBT power

The low-voltage FET segment accounted for more than 40% of the market share during 2015. Low-voltage FETs are primarily used in consumer electronic devices like laptops, tablets, and mobile phones. Each of these devices has sales of at least a million units year-on-year, which has been driving the market for low-voltage FETs. Further, these are also required for the two-phase processors being preferred by OEMs. The two-phase design has four MOSFETs and is being installed in portable devices as they ensure lower power consumption and better efficiency.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the power transistor market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

During 2015, the APAC region was the largest revenue contributor in the global market, accounting for more than 55% of the market share. The growth of this region is attributed to the impressive growth in the production of consumer electronic goods in China, Taiwan, South Korea, and Japan. Consumer electronic goods are the largest users of power transistors.
