A thyristor is a semiconductor device which is used for switching and controlling electrical power. It is also known as a silicon-controlled rectifier (SCR). The thyristor comprises several layers of semiconductor materials, including p-type and n-type layers, with a gate between the device. The primary function of the thyristor is to control the flow of electrical current. When a small current is applied to the gate terminal, the thyristor turns on, allowing a large current to flow through it. Once the Thyristor is turned on, it remains on until the current flowing through it drops below a certain level. It is also used as a circuit breaker, achieved by adding a Zener diode in thyristor. Thyristors are commonly used in power electronics and applications such as motor control, lighting control, power supplies, and industrial automation. They offer several advantages over other devices, such as high efficiency, high reliability, and low maintenance requirements.

Impact of COVID-19 on Thyristor Market:

The COVID-19 pandemic greatly impacted various sectors, including the electronics and telecommunications industries. On the other hand, increased demand for remote work and digital communication during the pandemic is responsible for the increasing sales of electronic devices that use thyristors, such as laptops, smartphones, and tablets. Also, during the COVID-19 pandemic, overall satellite and wireless communication use has increased. This factor has increased demand for thyristors for use in high capacity Wi-Fi routers, satellite signal receivers, signal amplifiers, and other devices that facilitate remote work and online communication.

However, disruptions to global supply chains and manufacturing operations due to the pandemic could have negatively impacted the production and availability of thyristors. Many countries have imposed lockdowns and other restrictions on businesses, which could have led to delays in the production and shipment of thyristors. Furthermore, an increase in global spending on defense communication equipment to remotely secure cross borders of countries during COVID-19 reinforces the growth aspects of the global Thyristor market during the forecast period.
