Power Electronics Competitive Innovation Assessment

August 28, 2015 | State of the Market Report

Key players in the power electronics industry, including Infineon, ABB, Cree, and Rohm, are all looking to capture market share in individual end markets through technology innovation and differentiated market strategies. Some of this critical innovation includes pushing the limits of silicon’s performance to investing in new material flavors, such as gallium nitride (GaN) and silicon carbide (SiC). Market players need to be aware that this growth in power electronics is not a sure-fire promise of success. Established suppliers and new players in the market face different challenges. They need to position themselves appropriately in the international market and increase their capacity for innovation if they want to profit from the developments in this industry. This report looks at the leading developers globally across three different geographies – Europe, Asia, and the U.S. – to evaluate who comes out on top and which companies are struggling to make it in the power electronics industry.
