Silicon Carbide (SiC) in Semiconductor Market – New Revenue Pockets
The Silicon Carbide material is used in many commercial applications including electronic systems, abrasive materials, cutting tools, body armors, automobile brakes, and lighting applications. The other major main use of Silicon Carbide material is in the power semiconductor devices such as SiC diodes, MOSFETs, transistors, and JEFTs. These SiC devices are used in power devices for their distinct properties such ashigh temperature, high voltage, and high frequency. The silicon carbide semiconductors are proved to be useful over other semiconductors such as silicon materials. There is a constant change in the electronics market because of technological advancements and innovation. The power electronics devices market is increasing at a fast pace.
The silicon carbide based semiconductor devices are widely used in industrial applications. Thesilicon carbide devices provide operating reliability under high voltage, frequency, and high temperature applications. Theindustrial application of SiC devices includes industrial and commercial motor drives, electro-mechanical computing and high temperature electronics and sensors. The various SiC devices such as power modules, Schottky diodes, MOSFETs and BJT (Bipolar junction transistors) are used in industrial applications. Theuse of silicon carbide devices in industrial applications is high in APAC. The development of the industrial and power sector in the APAC region is considered to be the main reason for the growth of SiC in APAC’s. The APAC region is projected to grow with a highergrowth rate compared to North America, Europe, and other regions.
The power sector in APAC is expected to create huge demand for silicon carbide based semiconductor devices. With the development of various projects related to power, there will be an increased demand for silicon carbide. Many power and smart grid projectsareexpected from Asian countries such as China, India, and Thailand. The implementation of solar power project in countriessuch as China and Japan will further boost the demand of silicon carbide based semiconductor. Due to the initiative taken by the Government of Japan in relation to solar power project, there is a huge requirement of solar power panel. These panels along with solar invertor require silicon carbide material. Thus in APAC, implementation of silicon carbide in semiconductor in power sector will lead the market.
