The global automotive power electronics market is set to achieve a valuation of US$ 6 billion by 2033, advancing at 4.1% CAGR from 2023 to 2033, as per this new industry analysis by Fact.MR, a market research and competitive intelligence provider.
Power electronics is a general term that refers to a category of solid-state devices used for power regulation and conversions, such as silicon-controlled rectifiers (SCRs), diodes, thyristors, power MOSFETs, gate turn-off thyristors, and many others. They have a significant role in the control of automotive electronics. Automotive electronics is a sophisticated term formed from power electronic devices and their applications in modern electric power steering, seat control, braking systems, central body management, HEV main inverters, etc.
Increasing acceptance of electric vehicles (EVs) is the main factors driving the global automotive power electronics market. Electric vehicles are seen as a critical transition toward modern mobility solutions, providing a cleaner and more efficient method of transportation than traditional automotive. Depleting fuel resources and public uproar over rising pollution levels have fueled the demand for electric vehicles worldwide.
Compliance with safety and vehicle emission norms, as well as rising demand for vehicle connectivity, infotainment, and powertrain electrification, is expected to propel the global automotive power electronics market over the forecast period. The usage of electronics in powertrain systems is predicted to expand at a higher rate throughout the forecast period due to growing efforts by regional governments and environmental agencies to reduce emissions levels through the use of environmentally-friendly automobiles (i.e., hybrid and electric vehicles).
