The commercial battle for next-generation power semiconductors is evolving. IGBTs, SiC and other technologies are geared for the niche-oriented markets at 1,700 volts and higher. But what is the best technology for the larger 600- and 1,200-volt markets? both super-junction MOSFETs and IGBTs are ramping up on 300mm wafers, making them less expensive than GaN and SiC. In comparison, SiC MOSFETs are ramping up on 100mm wafers, while GaN-on-silicon is running on 150mm substrates. This report analyzes and forecasts the traditional power semiconductor market as well as next generation devices. Market shares of vendors by type are presented.
The thin films market has thus evolved over the past few years alongside developments in the electronics and semiconductor industries. Photovoltaics (PV) is the major technology that has historically made the most use of thin films, and today dominates the market, accounting for more than 85% of the market share. The thin film batteries market, though smaller in size, is expected to witness robust growth during the forecast period. Our goal is to examine traditional and alternative energy technologies to determine the use, if any, of thin films in their fabrication and operation. Thin films are often applied to reduce the cost of product fabrication, improve performance and provide more flexibility in product design. In addition, they are environmentally benign. The geographical regions covered under the scope of the report include North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and the rest of the world (RoW). The study covers major countries such as the U.S., Mexico, Canada, France, Italy, U.K., China, India, Australia, Singapore, South America, the Middle East, Africa, Japan and Germany, among others. The present market size and market forecast through 2021 are provided in the report.
