SiC & GaN Power Semiconductors Leads Power Discrete Market by 2018 Says New Research Report

ReportsnReports.com adds Global Power Discrete Market 2014-2018 report to its store.

DALLAS, Feb. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- SiC power semiconductors comprise SiC MOSFET, SiC JFET, SiC BJT, and SiC Schottky diodes. Currently, SiC is widely used in the development of power semiconductors; however, GaN is a wide bandgap material that offers similar performance benefits to SiC but has greater cost-reduction potential, and the market for GaN power semiconductors is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years. In addition, GaN can be made available using existing silicon substrates, which can enable mass production and reduced cost. Power semiconductors using next-generation materials such as SiC and GaN are characterized to have lower energy loss, high-speed switching, and higher heat resistance than conventionally-used silicon. The adoption of SiC and GaN power semiconductors is expected to witness a significant increase, particularly in the EV/HEV and Industrial Motor Drive segments.
