The Global Power Electronics Market is projected to reach USD 63.75 billion by 2028, at a CAGR of 5.2% during the forecast period. The huge rise in the use of power devices across the broad spectrum of industries is expected to propel power electronics market growth during the forecast period.

Power Electronics Market

Power electronics is the use of solid state electronics to control and convert electrical power. Power electronics systems can be classified as rectifiers (AC to DC), inverters (DC to AC), choppers (DC to DC), and converters (AC to AC). Power systems transmit electrical power over long distances compensating for attenuation and distortions along the way. However, without the use of power devices, it will be an impossible to distribute electrical power across a huge area. 

The electronics industry is a major consumer of power devices accounting for approximately 76% of the power devices produced annually, including SCRs. MOSFETs, and IGBTs. Power devices are used abundantly in large-scale industries, where automation systems are installed. These power devices are responsible for providing uninterrupted power to systems to ensure proper functioning. In the corporate sector, companies make use of power electronic devicesfor 24/7 power supply. Power electronics are essential to realize smart grid projects. A smart grid uses power devices to collect and store information about consumer behavior. This is used to develop patterns that will specifically cater to the needs of the consumer. Power plants are one of the major users of power electronic devices. Steam turbines and nuclear fission reactors make use of power devices to support their electrical power consumption needs. Power devices such as rectifiers in inverters are used in UPS systems. Both online and offline UPS systems use these power devices to a huge extent to provide uninterrupted, non-attenuated, non-distorted power in case of power cuts. 

 Power Electronics Market

The global power electronics market is dominant in the Asia Pacific region due to unprecedented urbanization giving rise to the growth of industries and corporate sector. Countries, especially China and India are rapidly growing markets for power electronics, owing to changing lifestyles and increasing dependence on electronic devices. The power electronics market in North America and Europe is also witnessing growth due to the increased use of automation systems across all sectors. The power electronics market in the Middle East is expected to grow during the forecast period. 

Key Factors Impacting the Growth of Power Electronics Market:
    • Increasing use of automation systems
    • Growth of the electronic industry and increasing dependence on electronic devices
    • Environmental concerns regarding rising radiation levels
    • Increasing demand in the nanotechnology sector

Key Developments in the Power Electronics Market:

    • On April 4, 2011, Texas Instruments acquired National Semiconductors. After this successful deal, Texas Instruments
        became the world’s largest manufacturer of analog technology components.
    • On March 12 2019, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced the acquisition of ICONICS, Inc., a US-based software
        company, which focuses on SCADA, IoT, mobile, analytics, and cloud software products used for manufacturing,
        industrial and building automation activities. By combining ICONICS’ software-developing capabilities and Mitsubishi
        Electric’s factory-automation technology, it aims to capture a major share of the power electronics market.
