Power modules market to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period
High power efficiency requirements from various applications drive the demand for power modules. Government initiatives to increase the adoption of EV/HEV, rising electrification in the automotive industry, inclined trends of clean energy generation (renewable energy generation), increasing number of charging stations, increasing industrialization, growing adoption of intelligent modules in consumer appliances, and industrial automation & Industry 4.0 are the major factors driving the growth of the modules segment. Modules are used in various applications, such as motor control and drives; hybrid-electric solutions for construction, commercial, and agricultural vehicles; solutions for solar energy systems; uninterruptible power supply (UPS); room air conditioners; high frequency & switching applications; dc/dc converters; auxiliary inverters; hybrid electrical vehicles; and inductive heating & welding.
The Automotive & Transportation vertical to grow at highest CAGR during the forecast period
The automotive vertical is expected to dominate this market in the coming years owing to the increasing focus on hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) and EVs and increasing demand for cars and other passenger vehicles in developing regions. Also, increasing concerns regarding environmental pollution and sustainable growth have increased government support in several countries to boost the production of electric vehicles, supported by incentives. This is expected to develop and expand the charging infrastructure and provide opportunities for the market. China is one of the largest markets for electric vehicles, and it has scaled up the production by implementing new policies and subsidies aimed at automobiles, particularly new energy vehicles. In May 2020, the government announced the extension of NEV subsidies and tax policies by about 2 years, along with high capital investment for battery charging infrastructure by about USD 38 million. Such efforts are expected to boost the automobile market of the country and drive the market for power electronics.
APAC is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
APAC is likely to grow at the highest CAGR for the global power electronics industry from 2020–2025.
