DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Silicon Carbide Market by Device (MOSFET, Diode, Module, Bare Die), Wafer Size (2 Inch, 4 Inch, 6-Inch and Above), Application (RF Device and Cellular Base Station, Power Supply and Inverter), Vertical, and Geography - Global Forecast to 2022" report to their offering.
The silicon carbide has entered the growth phase and is expected to grow further in the coming years. The market is expected to be worth USD 617.4 million by 2022, at a CAGR of 17.4% between 2017 and 2022.
The drivers for this market is the ability of SiC devices in the semiconductor to perform at high temperature and high voltage and power, increasing demand for motor drives, ability to reduce overall system size, and increasing application of SiC in radio frequency (RF) devices and cellular base station. However, SiC devices packaging is acting as a major challenge for silicon carbide market.
The market for EV motor drive is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period. EV motor drive application is growing because of the increasing silicon carbide devices penetration in electric vehicles, as silicon carbide devices reduce size and weight of the system and overall weight of the vehicle.
With the increased demand for high power semiconductors, the load on the power equipment has increased. This has created a need for electronic devices that can operate in a high-temperature and high-voltage environment. Therefore, the SiC discrete device market is expected to grow at a significant CAGR during the forecast period.
