IGBT Market Overview
Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor formally known as IGBT is a power electronic semiconductor device. This device have its major application in switches, phase control and pulse modulation because of its high efficiency and fast switching. Electric power is a basic requirement of modern society and absence of electricity will create a huge loss and damage to human life as well as society. IGBT helps in reducing the congestion in power supply which will results into smooth electricity supply. IGBT have applications across various industrial verticals because of high power efficiency, ability to work in low power and high blocking voltage. IGBT is coming into focus because of its ability to lower switching loss which reduces thermal stress on electric device and results into extended device life and provides greater reliability. This market is very attractive and projected to grow rapidly because of increasing investment in Research and development of IGBT chips, module optimization for reduction in power consumption, modified chip density and thermal resistivity. These all features of IGBT are helping in strengthening the market position of IGBT power electronic semiconductor device market.
