Power Electronics Industry to Reach $16 Billion in 2019; Stakeholders on the Lookout for New and Alternative Materials

February 20, 2015

Wellesley, Mass., February 20, 2015 –BCC Research ( reveals in its new report on power electronics, the global market for power electronics was worth $10.6 billion in 2013 and nearly $11.5 billion in 2014. This is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.9% through 2019 resulting in $16 billion approximately in 2019 on a global scale.

Power electronics device evolution commenced with the uncontrolled category, progressed along to semicontrolled and finally reached completely controlled discretes and modules fabrication. As a result, completely controlled discretes and modules offer superior switching and control characteristics; resulting in extremely high-voltage applications.

“The power electronics industry is engaged in identifying technologies and materials that can keep pace with user demand for superior performance at minimum incremental pricing,” says BCC Research analyst Kaustubha Parkhi. “With silicon, a material that has dominated power electronics for some time, nearing the limits of its physical abilities to support the further evolution of superior products, stakeholders are looking at alternative materials.”

For optimum utilization of power, conversion and conditioning of power is essential. Power electronics help in achieving this objective. Power electronics is a collective term for solid-state devices that convert electric power from one form to another: direct current to alternating current, low frequency to high frequency and transmission voltages to line voltage, to name some examples. The fundamental objectives driving innovation in power electronics are thermal management, form factor efficiency and cost-effective synthesis.

Power Electronics: Technologies and Global Markets forecasts the market size for power electronics discretes and modules consumed by individual applications such as telecommunications, retail, residential and commercial, medicine, defense and surveillance, computing and entertainment, industrial and automotive, and energy. Revenue forecasts are provided for the period 2014 to 2019.
