Discrete Semiconductor Market Overview


Global Discrete Semiconductor Market is expected to grow from USD 21.63 Billion in 2022 to USD 56.2 Billion by 2030, at a CAGR of 5.20% during the forecast period. Electronic producers are looking for components that are quick, compact, and capable of increasing production efficiency, thus increasing the Discrete Semiconductor Market Share. These needs are met by discrete components such as diodes, transistors, thyristors, and modules. Safety, infotainment, navigation, and fuel efficiency in automotive components, as well as security, automation, solid-state lighting, transportation, and energy management in industrial components, are likely to drive the Discrete Semiconductor Market Revenue and Discrete Semiconductor Market Demand. In the EV power electronics system, for example, an insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) is a critical component. Because of the rise in EV sales around the world, IGBTs are projected to be in high demand. According to the IEA, global sales of electric automobiles will reach 6.6 million in 2021. Electric vehicles accounted for 9% of global vehicle sales.


Furthermore, to extend their Discrete Semiconductor Market Demand and Discrete Semiconductor Market Revenue in the power module category, Discrete Semiconductor Industry is developing innovative solutions. For example, STMicroelectronics, a leading semiconductor company serving customers across the spectrum of electronics applications, announced the release of its third generation of STPOWER silicon-carbide (SiC) MOSFETs1, advancing the state-of-the-art in power devices for electric-vehicle (EV) powertrains and other applications where power density, energy efficiency, and reliability are key target criteria.


COVID-19 Analysis


The Discrete Semiconductor Market has been severely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. There are many end-user sectors notably discrete semiconductors, that have been impacted. Working on the factory floor, where employees work in close quarters to increase productivity, is a big aspect of the electronic component production process. Market players are currently assessing the effects on three fronts: market demand, supply chain, and workforce. While customer behavior evolves rapidly and with future uncertainty, demand for the product is shifting across ASICS, memory, sensors, and other areas. Furthermore, many businesses have put off hardware upgrades and other long-term migration projects. For example, in many countries, such as India, Japan, Poland, and Israel, the 5G plan has been postponed, causing concern about the debut of commercial 5G services. As the virus spreads over the world, global supply systems are interrupted, and quarantine lengths remain unknown. To limit the deadly virus, many production plants around the world were shut down. For example, due to government regulations in countries such as Malaysia, China, Malaysia, and the Philippines, most of On Semiconductors' manufacturing sites were shut down, affecting the company's capacity to sell products to its clients and creating a demand-supply imbalance.


Market Dynamics


Drivers


The increased demand for high-energy, low-power devices is propelling the Discrete Semiconductor Market Size and Discrete Semiconductor Market Share. In addition, the market is developing due to the rising demand for MOSFETs and IGBTs in electronics and cars. As a result, rising demand for discrete semiconductors from consumer electronics and the automotive industry is a primary driver of market expansion. Consumer electronics companies are investing extensively in R&D to give better products to their customers. During the projected period, this is expected to influence the Discrete Semiconductor Industry. Furthermore, the market's growth is likely to be fueled in the approaching years by the demand for green energy power generation driven by Discrete Semiconductor Market Key Players.


Restraints


The market's growth is projected to be hampered by product manufacturers' preference for integrated circuits. The growth in the focus on integrated circuits, as well as a lack of progress and development in technology, are among the primary factors acting as barriers and will continue to challenge the discrete semiconductor market in the forecast period.


Technology Analysis


Discrete semiconductors are discrete components used in amplifiers and other electrical goods that require significant amounts of current, such as diodes, transistors, and modules. These semiconductors are mixed in with the chips on a circuit board. At least one or two discrete resistors or capacitors are found in almost every electrical product. It is meant to execute basic electronic functions and is not divided into separate components that may operate independently; instead, the components are joined together on a circuit board or terminal strip. Discrete semiconductors are well-suited to working in a wide variety of temperatures and conditions, making them perfect for use in aeronautical, industrial, and military applications.
