According to the recent business intelligence report by IndustryARC, the Global Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor Market size was valued to be $4billion to $5billion in 2018, and it is projected to grow with a CAGR of nearly 8% during the forecast period of 2019 to 2025. IGBT finds its application in various end users industries such as consumer electronics, variables frequency drives (VFDs) industrial motor drives, inverters & UPS, automotive (electric & hybrid vehicles), HVAC, and air conditioners with switching amplifiers. The insulated gate bipolar transistor marketplace finds major application in the transportation sector and it is estimated to grow with a CAGR of more than an impressive 13% through to 2025.
Insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) is a hybrid combination of two transistors, including high input impedance and switching speed of a field effect transistor (MOSFET) and, low saturation voltage of bipolar junction transistor (BJT). The need for developing a semiconductor switching device is because the power demands of the solid state device such as inverters, converters, and power suppliers are not fully met by other transistors. It offers greater power gain along with higher voltage operations and lower input losses.
