The Global IGBT and Thyristor Market by application is in its growth stage, however, it contains a great potential across many industry verticals. The IGBT is gaining attention due to lower switching losses that reduces thermal stress on the electric devices and leads to longer life cycle and greater reliability. The highlighting features like high efficiency, external thermal performance and soft switching operations have made IGBT the best suited device in electronic market. The aging power infrastructure in developed geographical regions demands replacement, increasing number of offshore wind farm, increase in the government incentivization to establish HVDC grid. De-carbonization of power system and deployment of smart grid will boost IGBT and Thyristor market which would be the captivating essentials for new entrants as well as winning opportunities for the established players.

For developed economies like Europe, the main focus is on upgrading and replacing the existing power infrastructure and to integrate the renewable energy sources, such as wind power and solar energy in the power grids clean environment. The biggest challenge in North America is its aging power infrastructure which needs to be replaced or upgraded but the cost of building new transmission lines is very high. The power failure resulting in blackouts in August 2003 motivated the power industry to develop efficient, reliable, and technically advanced transmission systems to avoid further incidences. Further, the power generation and transmission from renewable energy also support the demand of HVDC grid in the region. Interconnection among the neighboring grids and connection with offshore wind farms and solar plants will drive the American HVDC grid market.

The IGBT and Thyristor market is still in its growth stage and is witnessing enormous patent filings and developments. All the big electronic companies are conducting extensive research and development activities to get the first mover advantage. Small companies in the ecosystem are doing a flourishing business to stay in the competition for the long-term business.
