“Silicon Carbide Semiconductors & Electronics” has emerged as a prominent field with respect to technology due to its exceptional advantages over conventional “Silicon-based Semiconductors & Electronics”. SiC material improves the efficiency of a semiconductor device by more than 20% and also facilitates production and usage of devices with much smaller form factor. Advanced features of silicon carbide useful for semiconductors are inherent radiation-resistance, high-temperature operating capacity, high voltage and power handling capacity, high power efficiency and flexibility to be used a substrate. Use of SiC in specifically the industrial, power, solar & wind sector (for power applications) also enables smaller heat sink, passive, and magnetic nature in system designs. SiC electronics also find applications in electric vehicles and hybrid electric vehicles, rail transportation, power supply units, photovoltaic applications, converters & inverters, and many more. Over the next ten years, Silicon Carbide will become a part of mass manufacturing in the Semiconductors & Electronics industry. The other major sectors (other than power semiconductors) where SiC has scope in the semiconductor industry are opto-semiconductors (LEDs, Laser Diodes and Lighting) and high-temperature semiconductors (extreme temperature & rad-hard environment specific).

Silicon Carbide (SiC) has become the choice for most of the next generation power semiconductor devices and high-temperature semiconductor devices and is quickly replacing the existing silicon technology. The various properties of silicon carbide such as wider band gap, larger critical electric field, and higher thermal conductivity let the SiC devices operate at higher temperatures and higher voltages offering higher power density and higher current density than the pure Si devices. These properties allow the SiC discretes such as Schottky diodes, MOSFETs, and the other advanced transistors to operate at much higher voltage levels, which are difficult for the counterpart Si devices. The SiC devices also help in reducing the conduction and switching losses, thereby offering higher efficiency in electronic systems.

Over the past decade, research was carried out on a massive scale to develop SiC-based discretes (MOSFETs & various types in them, IGBTs, diodes & rectifiers, thyristors, and other FETs) and ICs that have advanced and sophisticated characteristics and offer better flexibility for use in several power applications. With such promising futures, the SiC semiconductor devices market is expected to grow robustly at a high CAGR of 37.67% from 2012 to 2022. The SiC market’s competitive landscape had only a handful of players in the beginning of the previous decade, but it quickly emerged into a vast network with more than forty key players combining both - materials & devices. Currently, the overall SiC power semiconductors market accounts for less than 1% of the total power semiconductors market (currently at $34 billion including power discretes and power ICs), but over the next ten years, the entire base for power semiconductors & electronics players is expected to penetrate this new value chain, thereby rapidly increasing the percentage share.

The basic semiconductor material upon which the two gigantic inter-related fields namely, Semiconductors and Electronics lay their foundations is ”silicon (Si)” primarily extracted from ”silica (silica sand)”. As research scientists and engineers carried out extensive research on identifying an alternative substrate material in the place of silicon, several new substrate materials such as SiC (Silicon Carbide), SiGe (Silicon Germanium), GaAs (Gallium Arsenide), GaN (Gallium Nitride), Indium Gallium Phosphide (InGaP), etc. were discovered to exhibit similar and more favorable (application wise) properties as compared to pure silicon. Subsequently, during the past decade, SiC material production began on a large scale and electronic products, devices, and system manufacturers started developing SiC-based semiconductor devices.

The specific sub-sector of semiconductors & electronics where SiC-based semiconductors & electronics currently have an edge over normal Si-based counterparts is ‘Power Semiconductors & Electronics’. In terms of end-user application sectors the two major upcoming sectors facilitating huge demand for SiC semiconductor devices are Industrial & Power (Motor Drives, HVDC) sector and Automotive (Electric & Hybrid Electric Vehicles) sector.

SiC has penetrated into three major sub-segments of the semiconductor industry; namely the power semiconductors industry, the opto-semiconductor industry, and the high-temperature semiconductor industry with mostly power discretes, LEDs and high-temperature discretes respectively. The SiC power semiconductor market is expected to be roughly $100 million in 2012. The phenomenal Y-o-Y growth rate between 35% to 50% year-on-year is expected to continue for the following years. The forecasted revenue for SiC power semiconductors is more than $4 billion by end of 2022 (after 10 years) at a CAGR of 45.65%, penetrating substantially into the global power semiconductors market, occupying a share of 13% by volume. 

  • The global SiC semiconductor industry’s value chain has grown to a vast network of players involved in various segments. There have been tremendous changes in the landscape of the SiC semiconductor industry supply chain with several developments in all the segments such as raw material suppliers, EDA & design tool vendors, wafer manufacturers, wafer equipment vendors, foundry models, fabless players, fab facilities, IDMs, ODMs, OEMs, ATP players, and so on. The wafer manufacturers’, wafer equipment manufacturers’ landscape is very dynamic, with increasing number of players in these two segments and has high level of collaborations, agreements, and partnerships activities among the players.  

  • The ODMs, IDMs segments are obviously the fastest growing segments with several new product launches, new technology launches taking place every year. In the supply chain landscape, both upstream and downstream sectors have different landscapes, with new wafer manufacturing technologies related to epitaxy process, dyeing, etching, and wafer diameters playing a major role in the upstream and new device fabrication technologies related to technology node, circuit design, assembly & packaging making their mark in the downstream. 

  • The global SiC semiconductor devices market revenue is split into seven major market segments based on the numerous applications in several end user verticals – namely, Computers, ICT, Consumer Electronics, Automotive (& Transportation), Industrial-Power-Solar & Wind, Military-Defense & Aerospace, Medical and Others. The percentage shares of these end user application sectors in the total estimated revenue, as of 2012 are given in the figure below.  

  • Among the application sectors, the largest share is occupied by the Industrial, Power, Solar & Wind Sector, grabbing more than 50% of the market currently with numerous applications such as power factor correction systems, power distribution systems, smart grid, HVDC, industrial motor drives, solar panels, photovoltaic inverters, wind power systems, and so on. The fast growing and upcoming application sectors are automotive and military, defense & aerospace sectors, with upcoming application fields such as electric & hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) in the former and electronic warfare, rad-hard electronics in the latter. 

Also given below is an illustrative representation of the average annual percentage growth (from 2009 to 2011) of SiC semiconductor device revenue of the top 10 companies of the market.
