The power electronics devices are solid-state electronic components, which are used to convert and control the electric power. The prime operations of the power electronics devices are conversion of AC to DC current and vice versa.

The rising adoption of automation and industry 4.0 is one of the major factors driving the power electronics industry growth. The manufacturing sector is extensively integrating automated-assembly-lines, CNC machines, and industrial robots, which require power modules and ICs for high-power applications. Adding to this, supportive government initiatives to boost smart manufacturing in industries will amplify the market demand for power electronics.

The COVID-19 pandemic has severely impacted the power electronics market due to disruption in the international trade and supply-chain gap. The trade disruption resulted in the severe shortage of semiconductor raw materials and components in the early 2020. The shortage of semiconductors and international trade disruption have led to shifting of manufacturing facilities to new geographies. In addition, the pandemic has propelled the development and innovations in ADAS, self-driving cars and electric vehicles, accelerating the demand for power electronic devices.
