Keywords:power transistor  market  growth 

IC Insights' report entitled "2011 Optoelectronics, Sensors and Discretes (O-S-D)," forecasts that the power transistor market is set to reach Rs.58,482.14 crore ($13.1 billion) in annual sales volume this year. The 9 per cent increase in the power transistor market follows its historic 44 per cent increase in 2010.

The report also shows power transistor shipments rising 11 per cent this year to a record-high 5.88 crore units worldwide due to above-average sales growth in automotive electronics, new renewable energy systems (such as solar panels and wind turbines), battery-operated portable products, and more efficient power supplies in a range of equipment applications.

Among power transistor products, sales of modules built with insulated gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs) are expected to increase 10 per cent to Rs.11,160.71 crore ($2.5 billion) this year, while IGBT transistor products and power FETs (field-effect transistors) are forecast to grow 9 per cent this year to Rs.4,285.71 crore ($960 million) and Rs.30,803.57 crore ($6.9 billion), respectively. IGBT modules, IGBT transistors, and power FETs for low- and high-voltage applications will all achieve sales records this year, according to the forecast contained in the report. Through 2015, FET and IGBT products are expected to register the highest compound annual growth rates (CAGRs) among all power transistor products.

power transistor market snapshot

Between 2010 and 2015, total power transistor revenues are expected to grow at a CAGR of 6.4 per cent, reaching Rs.72,767.86 crore ($16.3 billion) at the end of the forecast period. IC Insights' five-year forecast shows sales of low-voltage power FETs (up to 200V) rising at a CAGR of 6.7 per cent to Rs.73,214.29 crore ($16.4 billion) by 2015. IGBT module sales are expected to increase by a CAGR of 7 per cent to Rs.14,285.71 crore ($3.2 billion) in 2015 and discrete IGBT transistors are forecast to rise at an annual average of 6.5 per cent to Rs.5,357.14 crore ($1.2 billion) in the final year of the O-S-D report's forecast.
