This industry research report identifies ABB, Infineon technologies, and Mitsubishi Electric as the key vendors in the global IGCT market. This industry research report also presents a competitive analysis of the market by application (converters and industrial drives) and by geography (the Americas, APAC, and EMEA).

Overview of the global IGCT market

This market research analysis identifies the increasing demand for power electronic devices as one of the primary growth factors for the integrated gate commutated thyristor (IGCT) market. Power ICs or integrated circuits are primarily used for high-frequency range, high power amplification, and microwave radiation applications in fields such as industrial, ICT, and aerospace and defense applications. The increasing demand for power electronic devices has reduced their size, weight, and cost and has also improved their dynamic performance. The size is regulated by passive components such as inductors and capacitors. IGCT technology offers various advantages such as low cost, low complexity, and high efficiency. Operating the power converters at significantly higher switching frequencies by tackling the loss, efficiency, and control challenges, proves to be highly advantageous for the organizations. According to our industry research experts, the IGCT market will grow steadily at a CAGR of more than 6% by 2021.

The availability of next generation of IGCT with high power technology is identified as one of the key trends behind the growth of the IGCT market. The invention of the high-power technology (HPT) platform is significantly capable of improving the performance of the IGCT service-oriented architecture (SOA) while providing an assisting platform for future development trends. HPT increases the maximum turn-off current to integrate an advanced corrugated p-base design compared with a standard uniform p-base junction.

Competitive landscape and key vendors

The IGCT market is characterized by the presence of three key players who monopolize the market. The growth of the vendors in this market is influenced by the change in government in the US and the introduction of new economic policies. The entry of new players into the IGCT switches market is tough since the existing players are specialized in the product and the market.

The leading vendors in the market are -

  • ABB
  • Infineon technologies
  • Mitsubishi Electric

The other prominent vendors in the market are ON Semiconductor and Tianjin Century Electronics.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the IGCT market

  • Converters
  • Industrial drives

IGCTs are mainly used as converters in several consumer electronic devices and as components of DC power supply systems and high-voltage direct current power transmission systems. These converters adjust the generator frequency and voltage according to the grid in wind power converters.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the IGCT market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • EMEA

APAC will be the major revenue contributor to the IGCT market. This is mainly due to the increase in number of electric vehicles and industry systems using power electronics, and the high range of renewable resources. This region provides several benefits to the manufacturers such as lower manufacturing costs and attractive investment conditions. Additionally, this region also avails renewable energy as a viable means of generating energy in the IGCT switches market.
