IGBT Market to Touch $11.24 Billion by 2028; Launch of 650 V CoolSiC Hybrid IGBT Range by Infineon Technologies AG to Propel Market

July 13, 2021 | Information & Technology

The global insulated gate bipolar transistor market size is expected to reach USD 11.24 billion by 2028. The growing popularity of hybrid vehicles will create colossal opportunities for the global market, in a report, titled, “Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) Market Size, Share & COVID-19 Impact Analysis, By Voltage (Low Voltage, Medium Voltage, and High Voltage), By Application (Consumer Electronics, Industrial Manufacturing, Automotive (EV/HEV), Inverters/UPS, Railways, Renewables, and Others), and Regional Forecast, 2021-2028.” As per the report, the market size stood at USD 5.40 billion in 2020 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 9.8% between 2021 and 2028.

Due to the scarcity of materials amid the COVID-19 outbreak, the production of insulated gate bipolar transistors has been severely disrupted. Nevertheless, following the pandemic, the industry is projected to expand significantly because of increased clean energy adoption, increased demand for electric vehicles, and increased automation and industrial revolution.

Release of 7th-Generation X Series IGBT Module by Fuji to Augment Growth

Fuji Electric Co., Ltd., Pressure transmitters, flowmeters, gas analyzers, regulators, inverters, pumps, engines, ICs, motors, and power devices are all manufactured by this Japanese electrical equipment corporation. The company recently announced the commercial manufacturing of its HPnC*1 for the rail industry, which would be configured with a 7th-generation X Series IGBT*2 modules. The HPnC, a high-capacity IGBT module, has the ability to reduce power loss and save electricity. As per the company, the electric railway industry is projected to expand at a 6% annual pace, hitting about 50 to 60 billion yen in 2023. The bulk production of HPnC will have an outstanding effect on the IGBT market share. As HPnC has some of the industry's best low-loss performance, it will be highly efficient. Fuji Electric cut the internal inductance, which interferes with high-speed switching, by 76 percent compared to traditional devices by improving the kit configuration, resulting in low losses.
