Benefiting from 5G demand, RF/microwave power transistors will lead the market rebound next year

According to the "IC Insights" report, due to the impact of the new crown pneumonia (Covid-19) epidemic, the overall power transistor market revenue is expected to fall by 7% this year, but by 2021, sales are expected to rebound7 %, and set a record high.

The report pointed out that after setting a new historical sales high for three consecutive years, the power transistor market is expected to fall by 7% in 2020 due to the global epidemic crisis leading to a decline in overall system demand. However, by 2021, the power transistor market sales are expected Recovery will be achieved, when global sales are expected to increase by 7% to US$16.9 billion, and unit shipments are also expected to increase by 9% to 59 billion units.

By 2022, the power transistor market is expected to return to a record high, when sales are expected to increase by 5% to 17.7 billion US dollars, which will exceed the 2019 historical high of 17.1 billion US dollars.

Among them, the sales growth of radio frequency (RF) and microwave power transistors is expected to drive the market recovery in 2021, mainly due to the establishment of 5G networks, and a series of new transmission frequency bands will be used, including millimeter wave (mmWave) frequency bands.

The new 5G base station will also use more antennas and multiple signals to ensure instant high-speed connections between smart phones and IoT systems. By 2024, RF and microwave power transistors are expected to lead the growth of the overall power transistor market.

The report also predicts that in 2021, the sales of RF and microwave power transistors will grow by 9% to US$1.3 billion. The sales of low-voltage (under 40 Ford) power field effect transistors will grow by 8% to US$3.7 billion. Bipolar power modules will grow by 8% to reach 54 million US dollars. In addition, the sales of insulated gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) modules will increase by 7% to US$4.1 billion. The IGBT discrete transistors will grow by 7%, reaching a record high of 1.6 billion US dollars.

During the period from 2019 to 2024, the overall power transistor market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 1.7%, eventually reaching US$18.6 billion, compared with the compound annual growth rate of 5.3% in the past five years (from 2014 to 2019) The 3.6 percentage point lower growth rate is mainly due to the impact of the 2020 epidemic.
