COVID-19 to Hamper Manufacturing Sector Investments, Creating Volatile Business Conditions

Currently, the shockwaves of the COVID 19 pandemic are disrupting economies around the globe. Further, the growth rates in emerging Asian economies are also expected to contract in 2020 and rebound in 2021 as manufacturing plants across Asia are anticipated to suffer major setbacks. The short-term impact of COVID-19 on the market is due to the sudden disruptions in the manufacturing activities and halt in the supply chain systems.

Countries such as India, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, and the Philippines have seen the drastic aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic. Amongst them, Vietnam has had a relatively low impact of the pandemic, owing to the growing demand for high-processing power components for mobile and other computing devices, which also contributes to the growth of the semiconductors market in the consumer electronics segment. The demand for consumer electronics is high due to the availability of low-cost labor and favorable investment incentives. GDP growth is expected to slow down in 2020 to 2.5%, but the country will continue to lead the ASEAN-5 on this metric.

Moreover, China is the ASEAN countries’ largest trade and investment partner, where the pandemic has led to a downturn in trading activities related to raw materials and other manufacturing equipment, worsened by the declining GDPs of ASEAN countries. To overcome these challenges, Malaysia has rolled out a fiscal stimulus package of about 17% of its GDP to support small businesses and residents who have been harshly hit by COVID-19. Similarly, Singapore introduced a stimulus package of 11% of its GDP for ramping up the existing job support schemes and supporting the households by offering cash payouts on the basis of their income.

However, even though the market is expected to witness a decline in the pandemic period, it is expected to bounce back by the end of 2020. This is mainly due to the active participation of manufacturers and governments to recover the losses incurred during the pandemic and working on various strategies to rejuvenate the economy.

Adoption of ACES in the Automotive Sector is an Emergent Market Trend

In the coming decade, the automotive industry is anticipated to experience an emerging trend of Autonomous, Connected, Electric, and Shared (ACES) vehicles. This is expected to result in varied mobility preferences and user behaviors, innovative business models, shifting value pools, and new entrants into the automotive industry. The ACES trend is enabled by the technological advancements in electronic components and software that will positively impact the demand for MOSFETs across the automotive sector.

Asian countries have a higher proportion of the younger population, bolstering the high enthusiasm of automotive manufacturers about the ACES trend. Qualities such as compact size, lightweight, high switching speed, and silent operation enhance the necessity of MOSFET while adopting ACES technology. Thus, several ASEAN automotive manufacturers are adopting the ACES trend, thus encouraging the production of these transistors.


Rising Demand for Compact & Durable MOSFET for Efficient Automated Solutions to Drive Growth

Over the past few decades, the demand for compact and efficient automated solutions has become the key factor for encouraging the adoption of smaller size transistors in a wide range of electronic devices. Ultra-small size and weight of MOSFET is ideal for applications that require small size and less space on the bottom surface. Generally, the compact size of electronic devices allows for silent operation and high-speed switching with efficient automated solutions, bolstering the demand for these transistors throughout the ASEAN region. Packaging the compact-sized devices into a single unit is perfect for saving space that significantly offers high-power processing, excellent reliability, and better performance, fueling their adoption across several industries.


Tariff Disruptions and Shift in Asian Trade to Hamper Market Growth

The power electronics industry heavily depends upon the United States as this country has been a prominent player in the power electronics market with a dominant share. With the change in the country’s leadership, the U.S. has started to impose trade restrictions on China from 2018, and if it maintains these restrictions, the country is expected to suffer a ~16% decrease in its market share. Furthermore, developing ASEAN countries and India remained in the doldrums in 2019, witnessing fluctuations in trade balances and heightening uncertainty in the Asian trading sector.

Furthermore, tariffs are being applied to practically all industrial goods and materials, which are customary for the production of metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors. These tariffs are impacting the import and export of components, which will directly affect the manufacturing cost of these devices. Besides, smaller companies are expected to bear minimal changes in the costs involved with these tariff disruptions. Since 2019, Vietnam’s exports declined by 10.5%, dragging down the value of Asian exports by 40% and resulting in the modest market growth in other ASEAN countries. 


By Type Analysis

Depletion Type Segment to Grow at a Higher CAGR

Among all type segments, the depletion mode segment is projected to grow exponentially over the forecast period, owing to the rising need for a very low voltage/current circuit, which could use a matched dual or quad integrated circuit array from advanced linear devices. Depletion type transistors require gate-source voltage (VGS) to switch OFF the device and have a wide range of applications in the automotive and consumer electronics sectors.

The enhancement mode segment is estimated to have progressive growth, as this type is equivalent to the “normally-open” switch and requires gate-source voltage to switch ON the device. Enhancement-mode transistors are used in integrated circuits to produce CMOS type Logic Gates and power switching circuits in the form of PMOS (P-channel) and NMOS (N-channel) gates.
