Research and Markets: Global High-voltage MOSFET Market 2014-2018 with Fairchild Semiconductor, Infineon Technologies, International Rectifier, Renesas Electronics, Toshiba & Vishay Intertechnology Dominating

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/gqcsvr/global) has announced the addition of the "Global High-voltage MOSFET Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.

The Global High-voltage MOSFET market is segmented on the basis of input voltage ratings of a high-voltage MOSFET. The report considers the sales of the entire range of high-voltage MOSFETs which have voltage ratings of 201 and above. It also provides the segmentation of high-voltage MOSFETs by standard voltage ratings. It does not consider the aftermarket sales of high-voltage MOSFETs.

The growth of the Global High-voltage MOSFET market is driven by several factors, of which an increasing demand for EVs is one of the major driving factors. EVs require high-voltage MOSFETs in the range of 400-900 volts. Also, high-voltage MOSFETs are becoming an integral part of EVs because the vendors are attaching high significance to high-voltage MOSFETs. Thus, it is expected that the increasing demand for EVs will tend to propel the growth in the market during the forecast period.

Industrial automation is gaining more popularity among the players operating in the sector. The proliferation of various technologies such as M2M has increased the demand for power management semiconductors. The systems used for industrial applications operate at high-voltage and require fast switching and at the same time are required to deliver high performance and high durability. These characteristics are exhibited by high-voltage MOSFETs with low noise and thus, it is becoming one of the preferred systems for industrial automation.

Further, the report states that one of the key challenges in the market is the cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry, which tends to show fluctuating demand patterns in the supply chain resulting in high inventory levels. This phenomena also affects the production cycle and operations of the vendors in the market, which could further affect the growth of this currently highly competitive market.
