LONDON--()--Technavio has announced the top five leading vendors in their recent global intelligent power module (IPM) market report. This research report also lists six other prominent vendors that are expected to impact the market during the forecast period.

The increase in demand from smart grids, renewable energy, and the commercial sector will drive the market. The market growth is also dependent on the efficiency and cost effectiveness of power electronics devices that are used for stabilizing the power supply in many devices. Awareness about the environment will foster the demand for electric and hybrid electric vehicles, which use IPMs. The automation of industrial processes will result in high power consumption. To reduce the high consumption of power and cut costs, manufacturing industries will also adopt IPMs during the forecast period. The market growth rate will fall because of the steady decline of consumer electronics sector primarily because of price sensitivity.

Competitive vendor landscape

The global IPM market is dominated by the top five vendors accounting for more than 80% of the overall revenue. The market is highly competitive with the players vying with each other to gain larger market shares. The global IPM market has a high potential for growth because of the increase in applications for power electronic devices across several sectors. The market is characterized by the presence of significant entry barriers in the form of capital requirements, which prevents new players from entering the market.

Intense competition, rapid advancements in technology, and the changing dynamics of the market are the key factors for the intense competition among vendors. With the rising competition, the market will also see consolidation. Few mergers and acquisitions are taking place in the market,” says Sunil Kumar Singh, a lead embedded systems analyst from Technavio.

International players will grow inorganically during the forecast period through M&A of regional or local players. American and European players are prioritizing horizontal integration, to maintain proven expertise at a specific level. Asian companies are expanding vertically to be fully integrated and optimize the costs.
