The power electronics devices offer high performance, greater electrical stability, and optimized energy consumption. These features increase their adoption in datacenter UPS, power distribution units (PDUs), cabling infrastructures, and generators for datacenter power management. Several datacenter giants, such as AWS, Alibaba, Microsoft, NTT Data, and Google, are focusing on building green-datacenters powered by solar and wind renewable energy resources.

The rising acceptance of automation and industry 4.0 is one of the major factors fostering the power electronics market expansion. 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 industry growth 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 in the market during the forecast timeline.

Technological innovations in insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBT) will fuel the power electronics market progression

The power discrete segment dominated more than 65% of the market share in 2020 and is projected to witness 4% growth rate through 2027. The power discrete devices, such as BJTs, IGBTs, and MOSFETs, provide reduced power consumption and low noise operations for various industrial appliances. The increasing usage of these power electronics devices in electrical power grids, industrial motor drives, power inverters, and DC-DC convertors will further amplify the industry demand. The market leaders are continuously focusing on improving the device packaging, increasing current density, improving energy efficiency, and achieving low noise operations.
