Power Electronics Driven By Electric Vehicles: Vehicle hybridization will drive the p...

SAN FRANCISCO—Vehicle hybridization will drive the power electronics market for the foreseeable future, in what French firm Yole Developpment forecasts as “the golden era for electric vehicles.” If customers adopt the driving technology and governments keep on subsidizing the field, that is. The driving power of electric and hybrid vehicles (EHV) was outlined in Yole’s report Status of The Power Electronics Industry 2016 , which also focused on market forecasts for wafers, inverters, MOSFETs and IGBTs through 2021. It also touches on industry consolidation. Last year was difficult for power electronics as the market contracted, with the global value of power ICs, power modules and discrete components decreasing 3% from $15.7 billion to $15.2 billion mainly due to a drop in the average selling price (ASP) of IGBT modules. EHV will represent a major part of the IGBT module m...
