The IGBT and Thyristor market was valued at US$ 5.15 billion in 2019 and it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.1% from 2020 to 2027.

In 2019, APAC held the major share of the IGBT and Thyristor market and is anticipated to dominate the market during the forecast period. The presence of significant semiconductor players in the region is one of the key reasons attributed to market growth. Moreover, the growth is due to the rising need for more efficient power transmission systems to fulfill the increasing electricity demand by the continually increasing population in the region.

Furthermore, the region has numerous HVDC projects underway. For instance, China adopted HVDC systems for its high population that needs a substantial power supply. Zhou Shan, Gezhouba – Shanghai, Tian-Guang, as well as Three Gorges – Changzhou are a few key HVDC projects.

Several IGBT manufacturers, as well as HVDC providers, are aiming to deploy their solutions in APAC. For instance, in 2019, ABB Ltd. won a contract worth US$ 640 million from Power Grid Corporation of India Limited, the country’s national electricity grid operator. As per the contract, ABB is projected to supply an 800 kilovolt (kV) ultra-high-voltage direct current transmission link of more than 1,800 km to provide electricity to over 80 million people. Furthermore, India is the fastest-growing country for the IGBT and Thyristor market owing to the rising population and growing infrastructure. In the SAM region, Brazil accounted for the largest market share due to rising investments in power transmission due to increasing urbanization.

The market is estimated to witness a slow growth in 2020 and 2021 owing to the negative impact of COVID-19 on the APAC semiconductor industry. Though the complete impact of COVID-19 is still unidentified, the impact across the electronics value chain will probably be far-reaching and strongly affecting parties involved with semiconductor manufacturing. COVID-19 is underlining the possible risks and vulnerability of present electronics and semiconductor value chain model as well as challenging the semiconductor industry to consider altering its global supply chain model.

Thyristor: Application Insights

A Thyristor is known as a four-layer device with alternating P-type and N-type semiconductors (P-N-P-N). A Thyristor comprises three terminals - cathode (negative terminal), an anode (positive terminal), and gate (control terminal). The gate is a control terminal; it controls the flow of current within the anode and cathode. The main function of a Thyristor is to control electric power and current by working as a switch. It gives sufficient protection to circuits with large voltages and currents up to 6,000V and4,500A. It has the ability to switch rapidly from a state of conducting current to a state of non-conduction. In addition, it is a cost-effective solution, and it also remains functional in the long term without developing a fault. Thyristor are used in a wide range of applications, including power transmission systems, light dimmers, motor controllers, pressure control systems, and liquid-level regulators. The power transmission application of the global Thyristor market is projected to witness the highest CAGR during the forecast period.
