Global SiC market for semiconductor applications in consumer electronics sector

SiC is used for manufacturing power electronics devices that are mainly used in consumer electronic products, such as laptops. Consumer electronic devices are the largest source of energy consumption. This technology is being rapidly adopted because of its ability to conserve power.

According to Sunil Kumar Singh, a lead embedded systems research analyst from Technavio, “The consumer electronics sector will likely be the major revenue-contributing sector to the global SiC market for semiconductor applications during the forecast period. This segment is expected to mature at a steady pace because of the increased demand for power electronics devices from offices, hospitals, and commercial organizations.”

Global SiC market for semiconductor applications in telecommunication sector

With the advent of 4G networks, the demand for high-power transistors and base stations is expected to increase. This will likely result in a growing demand for SiC power semiconductors in the telecommunication sector.

This segment is growing steadily because of the increasing Internet penetration worldwide, especially in developing markets. Also, the increasing adoption of 3G and 4G technologies, particularly in emerging markets, has contributed to the growth of this segment,” says Sunil.

Global SiC market for semiconductor applications in automotive sector

SiC-based power electronics devices are majorly used in electric vehicles (EVs)/hybrid EVs. The market growth is driven by the various CO₂ emission regulations by governments. As vehicle electrification depends on efficient energy storage and conversion, SiC-based power discrete devices are widely used in vehicle electrification.

Furthermore, SiC-based power electronics devices play an important role in minimizing power loss and boosting performance. Thus, the increasing adoption of EVs/hybrid EVs will drive the demand for SiC-based power electronics semiconductors during the forecast period.
