Automotive Inverter Market Trends:




  • Increasing Demand for 'Electric Powered' and Alternative Energy Vehicles Globally




Electric car sales accounted for 9% of the global car market in 2021 – four times their market share in 2019. All the net growth in global car sales in 2021 came from electric cars. Sales were highest in China where they tripled relative to 2020 to 3.3 million after several years of relative stagnation." Electric vehicles in China are often smaller than those manufactured in other regions. This, along with lower development and production costs, has contributed to a narrowing of the price gap with conventional vehicles, making them more appealing. Sales in Europe have continued steady after the 2020 boom. Electric vehicle sales in Europe climbed by around two-thirds year on year. Electric vehicle sales have also climbed dramatically in the US after two years of decline. In 2021, China and Europe accounted for more than 85% of worldwide electric car sales, followed by the US, where sales doubled from the previous year. The electric vehicle market is expected to hold a significant share of the automotive industry by 2030. Hence, the ascending demand for electric-powered vehicles is expected to fuel the global automotive inverters market growth during the forecast period.


Government Initiatives Promoting Environment-Friendly Automotive Sales


With increased environmental and sustainability concerns, governments worldwide have established and implemented policies to incentivize and promote the adoption of electric vehicles and alternatively powered vehicle fleets. Electric cars have a reduced environmental effect since they emit less to nearly no carbon dioxide or polluting gases. Based on Global Electric Market Outlook 2022 published by IEA (International Energy Agency), The Announced Pledges Scenario assumes that governments worldwide meet their announced objectives and targets, including the most recent ones, in full and on schedule. Based on the objectives and promises that go beyond stated policies, the worldwide EV stock reaches over 85 million cars in 2025 and 270 million vehicles in 2030 (excluding two/three-wheelers) under the Announced Pledges Scenario. "In 2030, EVs account for 14% of the stock. In this scenario, EV sales exceed 45 million vehicles by 2030, earning a 33% market share."


Automotive Inverter Market- Segment Insights


Automotive Inverter Market- Material Insights:


The Automotive Inverter Market, in this report, has been segmented based on Material into Gallium Nitrate, Silicon, Silicon Carbide.


The segment- Silicon Carbide hold the largest share, that is 51% of the total market share while, silicon hold the second largest share which is 29.5% of the total share.


Gallium nitride is causing an innovative revolution in the realm of power electronics. For decades, MOSFETs (Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors) have been an essential component of modern life, converting energy to power. However, we are approaching the theoretical limit of how much silicon MOSFETs can be improved in terms of power efficiency. Silicon cannot fulfill modern expectations for growing power density, efficiency, and environmental pollution standards.


When silicon is manufactured in its finest form, it creates a crystalline structure in which a single silicon atom bonds with four other nearby silicon atoms. This silicon base substrate can then be doped with additional elements to generate semiconductor junctions on a silicon substrate wafer. Silicon carbide substrate materials may sustain higher voltages before breaking down due to their capacity to withstand higher electric fields. The breakdown voltage of silicon is around 600V.


It is well known that silicon carbide-based inverters offer better power densities than conventional inverters while requiring less cooling and cost. However, they are still far from becoming commercially mature because it is still very difficult to convert the technology to mass production due to flaws in the interface between silicon carbide and the insulating silicon dioxide material. Only a few inverter manufacturers have created silicon carbide products to date for the PV sector, and they are typically constructed as prototypes or in pilot projects.


Automotive Inverter Market- Power Output Insights:


The Automotive Inverter Market, in this report, has been segmented on the basis of Power Output into upto 200 KW, 200 KW-300 KW, and 300KW-400 KW.

Upto 200 segment inverter works on 800VDC bus nominal (900V max), 240ARMS output, 80kHz maximum switching frequency, 300uF DC-Link Capacitance, liquid-cooled cold plate, CAN Interface and is acknowledged for its high performance, energy efficiency, corrosion & abrasion resistance, and other characteristics, the Inverter Duty Induction Motors that is present in the market find their extensive usage in different industrial applications.


This inverter is designed to provide precise and cost-effective speed/torque control of AC motors. MOSFETS or transistors perform the switching operation. These MOSFETS or Transistors are linked to the inverter transformer's primary winding. When these switching devices receive the MOS driving signal from the driver circuit, they begin switching between ON and OFF states at a rate of 50 Hz. The fundamental advantage of utilizing a MOSFET as a load device is that the transistor occupies less silicon area than the resistive load. MOSFETS are active loads in this case, and inverters with active loads outperform inverters with resistive loads.


A SiC-based high power density (34 kW/L) electric vehicle (EV) traction inverter with 105 ambient temperature operation and 100 kW peak power output has been developed. The thermal properties of this high-temperature system are investigated, and the system is designed by the thermal behavior of the switching devices. A liquid cooling system is designed to estimate the maximum device die temperature, and a testing approach is proposed. Key components like dc-link capacitors and dc busbar are designed and arranged to achieve high power density at high ambient temperature. At 105°C ambient temperature and 65°C coolant temperature, the system prototype was built and tested to 60 kW continuous and 100 kW for 20 seconds.


The 400kW inverter's packaging differs significantly from cutting-edge photovoltaic power converters. The method employs functional-block subassemblies to cut manufacturing, servicing, and repair costs. Each functional-block module is highly integrated. In contrast, all other state-of-the-art PV inverter packaging employs a slew of distributed current sensors, voltage sensors, fuse blocks, contactors, power supplies, and printed circuit boards wired together by hand or using hand-made wiring harnesses. The power conversion efficiency of the 400kW inverter is 98%. The 2% of power, or 10,000 Watts, that is not converted into AC power is converted to heat, which must be removed from the inverter enclosure.
