WBG Power Semiconductors Market Trends

In the dynamic power electronic industry, wide band gap materials Silicon Carbide (SiC) and Gallium Nitride (GaN) have made remarkable entry over the last years and continue their market ascension. The boom of the EV/HEV market has impacted significantly the wide SiC industry, with numerous carmakers adopting SiC devices in main inverters, on-board chargers (OBC) and DC/DC converters. On the other hand, GaN has found a sweet spot in high volume consumer rapid charging and future EV applications. This presentation provides an overview of SiC and GaN device technology and ecosystem, including Yole Développement’s understanding of the market’s current dynamics and future evolution of wide band gap materials compared to mainstream Silicon power electronics market.
