Yole Développement (Yole) and System Plus Consulting have analyzed the compound semiconductor industry in-depth for some years now. Based on a dedicated methodology and high-added value expertise, both partners deliver their vision through a wide collection of products, including technology and market reports, reverse engineering and costing analyses, and a dedicated Compound Semiconductor Quarterly Market Monitor.
In this dynamic context, Yole and System Plus Consulting offer a special focus on SiC for power electronics applications with their annual report, Power SiC 2022, and a SiC Transistor Comparison 2021.
The SiC device market will reach US$6.3 billion in 2027, announces Yole’s Compound Semiconductor team. With the trend toward EVs in the past years, a longer range is one of the main demands of customers. However, this, in turn, creates a need for fast DC charging to decrease the waiting time at charging stations. The 800V EV is the solution to meet the demand, and it started to penetrate the market in 2021.Poshun Chiu, Technology & Market Analyst, Compound Semiconductors & Emerging Materials at Yole, comments:“SiC is considered the enabler to provide good efficiency, and a supply of 1200V devices is feasible. With more 800V EVs coming, SiC is expected to grow quickly. Meanwhile, charging infrastructure and photovoltaics are two markets supporting the EV trend. More chargers are needed to support the increasing volume of EVs, and renewable energy shares the same objective of zero CO2 emission with EVs. These are the markets for SiC to gain more momentum.”
