Market Definition:

The Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFET Market size was valued at USD XX billion in 2020 and is predicted to reach USD XX billion by 2030 with a CAGR of XX% from 2021-2030. 

Silicon carbide MOSFETs outperform conventional silicon power MOSFETs in terms of dynamic and thermal performance. It has several advantages, including high efficiency and low switching losses, improved thermal capabilities up to 175 degrees Celsius, and the elimination of the need for an external freewheeling diode. Silicon carbide MOSFETs eliminate tail current, resulting in faster operation, lower switching losses, and improved stability.

Silicon carbide has a lower ON resistance and smaller chip size, which results in less capacitance and gate charge. Silicon carbide MOSFETs are an appealing electronic switch for innovative power supply and motor drive solutions including industrial equipment, electric vehicles, power, solar and wind sectors.

Market Dynamics and Trends:

Silicon carbide MOSFET is perfectly suited for power electronics applications, due to its ability to withstand high voltages, up to ten times higher than those used with silicon. Thus, increasing need for power electronics across several industry verticals such as IT & telecom, aerospace & defense, industrial, energy & power, semiconductor & electronics, automotive, and healthcare among others is the key factor driving the silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFET market.

Power electronics ensure that electrical power is effectively and efficiently controlled and converted. Silicon carbide power semiconductors, make it easier to manage automotive electronics like electric brakes, power steering, and seat control in hydroelectric vehicles. These devices are also used in aircraft actuators and generators for energy conversion.

Geographical Analysis:

Asia Pacific held the largest revenue share of the global silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFET market in 2020, and the trend is expected to continue during the forecast period. The increasing adoption of the electric vehicle is driving the growth of the market as silicon carbide MOSFET chips are extensively used in electric vehicle inverters and on-board chargers due to its higher efficiency, frequency and compact size compared to silicon-based insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs). According to the IEA outlook 2020 report, China accounted for 47% share of the global electric buses sales in 2019, which significantly contributed towards the dominance of the APAC region among all other regions. Moreover, several countries in this region have been taking steps to promote the use of alternate fuel vehicles to reduce carbon footprint.

Asia Pacific region is also anticipated to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period.  This is mainly attributed to the increased use of silicon carbides (SiC) MOSFET devices in the automotive, power electronics, energy, and renewable power generation verticals across the region.  In addition, India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA) and the Singapore Semiconductor Industry Association (SSIA) signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to establish and develop trade and technical cooperation between the two countries' electronics and semiconductor industries. This is expected to result in the development of several breakthrough semiconductor manufacturing technologies, which may expand the scope for the use of silicon carbides (SiC) MOSFET in the region.
