POWER ELECTRONICS - Inverter Market Trends 2013
- 2020 and Major Technology Changes

Summary
  • Inverter market is exploding, and expects
    to reach 75 billion in 2020. THERE IS
    SIGNIFICANT GROWTH IN THE INVERTER MARKET, WHICH
    REACHED 45 BILLION IN 2012 FOR MOTION AND
    CONVERSION Energy related topics have become
    more and more important in 2012 vehicle
    electrification, renewable energies, electricity
    transportation, and as a direct result, the
    power electronics market has increased. This
    growth is driven by 
  • high volume and cost pressure applications such
    as EV/HEV
  • high added-value markets like renewable energies
    and rail traction

  • In this report, we update and present
    market forecasts until 2020. We estimate the
    inverter market to be 45 billion in 2012 and to
    reach 71 billion by 2020. A total of more than
    28 million units were shipped in 2012 and we
    estimate that will grow to 80 million units in
    2020. Thus, the main components of inverter,
    passive and semiconductor modules (that we will
    find in power stacks) represent enticing
    industries. The power module market was 1.9
    billion in 2012 and passive components achieved a
    market size of more than 4 billion, including
    capacitors, resistors, connectors, busbars and -
    newly added in this updated report - magnetic
    components (inductors and transformers).
  • As expected, wide band gap semiconductor
    devices have also started to penetrate those
    high-end market segments SiC is present in PV
    inverters a total market size of 43 million
    primarily driven by diodes in micro-inverters,
    but also by JFETs and GaN which should be
    introduced in 2013.

  • SEMICONDUCTOR TECHNOLOGICAL DEVELOPMENTS
    CONTINUE TO EVOLVE AND SHARPEN INVERTER
    PERFORMANCE Our 2012 investigation confirmed
    that semiconductor improvements enabled more
    efficient conversion, lighter systems and more
    reliable end-products. IGBTs have improved
    (higher current density, thinner and faster), as
    have SiC and GaN-based devices. GaN could be
    delayed in its market introduction, but SiC is
    already here and several companies showed SiC
    power module capabilities all last year. In this
    report, we updated our technology roadmaps for
    materials and devices. This report also
    highlights the power stack trend that Yole
    surveyed closely in 2012!

  • The Power Stack is the custom design and
    manufacturing of an inverters sub-unit which
    includes only the core components power
    semiconductor module, cooling system, capacitors,
    resistors, current sensors, busbars and
    connectors, Power Stack is the innovative
    sub-system of an inverter. Inverter and device
    makers are becoming power stack manufacturers for
    several reasons
  • Vertical integration
  • Access to several applications, since power
    stacks are less application-dependent than
    inverters
  • Internal cost reductions
  • Access to high-end markets
  • Sustain RD in-house

Continue
  • Large firms such as Ingeteam, Semikron or
    ABB are now involved, but power stack also
    interests smaller players such as AgileSwitch
    former IGBT driver manufacturer who are part of
    this about 500 million market. MAJOR CHANGES
    ARE HAPPENING ACROSS THE SUPPLY CHAIN Power
    electronics often requires having several types
    of knowledge and experience gained know-how in
    mechanics, electronics, semiconductors,
    electrics, fluidics and hydraulics, and
    connectors. Therefore, development can be
    complicated and final products expensive.

  • As a consequence, we have observed and
    analyzed in this report two main trends coming
    out of the power electronics industry
  • Japanese and Chinese players, especially
    system makers, tend toward internal vertical
    integration and master the manufacturing
    processes of each sub-system and component. In
    the case of Japanese companies, this tendency is
    mostly driven by cost reduction and absorption of
    intermediary margins, whereas Chinese companies
    want to access the technology and show some proof
    of quality.
  • On the other hand, EU and US players are
    diversified and acquisition of new or
    complementary competencies (such as Mersen,
    Rogers or Power Integration) or high-end RD and
    prototyping services (APEI, Primes, IMEC, GE
    Global Research) is becoming more common.
