Infineon Technologies AG Accounted For 18.59% Of The Global Thyristor Revenue Market Share In 2017
Tuesday, 16 Apr, 2019
The function of thyristor not only can be used as a rectifier, but also can be used as contactless switch to realize the inversion of converting direct current into alternating current or converting alternating current of one frequency into alternating current of another frequency. The emergence of thyristor has made semiconductor technology from the field of weak electricity into the field of strong electricity, and it has become an electronic component widely used in industry electronics, transportation, military, scientific research, commercial and civil appliances. According to this study, the global revenue of thyristor was valued at $ 761.60 Million in 2017 and is forecast to reach 1072.51 M USD by the end of 2025, at a CAGR of 4.37% between 2017 and 2025. 

The industry concentration is high, and the main production enterprises are concentrated in Europe, United States and Japan. Infineon, ON Semiconductor, Mitsubishi Electric, STMicroelectronics are in a dominant position in global market, forming the first echelon in the market competition of thyristor in the world. Of the major suppliers of thyristor, Infineon Technologies maintained its first place in the ranking again in 2017. Infineon Technologies AG accounted for 18.59% of the global thyristor revenue market share in 2017. Other players accounted for 9.26%, 5.71% and 5.35% including ON Semiconductor, STMicroelectronics and STMicroelectronics, respectively.

In this study, the market for thyristor divided into five geographic regions: In Europe, total thyristor accounted for 9.37% in 2017. In North America, total thyristor accounted for 9.85%. The thyristor market in Asia-Pacific accounted for 73.80%, in South America 3.74%, and in Middle East and Africa 3.24%. Among all regions, Asia-Pacific occupied the largest global market share and is forecast to grow at a faster pace versus other regions during the forecast period, driven by the large market demand of consumer electronics and industrial electronics.

Amongst the key type segments, SCR type accounted for the leading share in the market in 2017 and is projected to dominate the market over the estimated period. This sector is likely to rise at a CAGR of 7.30% from 2017 to 2025.

The world's largest application of thyristor is in the Consumer Electronics sector, accounted for 43.14%, followed by Industrial Electronics with 37.04%.
