Key Growth Drivers

  • Increased demand for rectifier diodes in various automotive and power sector applications and miniaturization of traditional electronic devices is expected to boost market growth.
  • Electronics have gained widespread use in the generation and regulation of power in the automotive industry. For instance, a new load-matching approach is launched in the automotive industry that makes use of a basic switched-mode rectifier to significantly enhance peak and average power production from a traditional Lundell alternator. The deployment of rectifiers has provided a new set of possibilities to power electronic components in vehicles and the overall power control and management system.
  • The continued trend of equipment miniaturization in the electronics industry has compelled the feature sizes of the electronic components to correspondingly decrease which is, in turn, increasing the demand for semiconductor rectifiers.
  • Technical difficulties and expensive semiconductor rectifiers limit market growth
  • Typically, rectifiers are employed in electrical components to correct voltages, alter the size of signals, isolate signals from the source, and reference voltages. Due to these characteristics, semiconductor rectifiers are used in the circuits of electronic parts to protect against the dangers posed by the unintentional reversal of supply voltage. As a result, if connected improperly or inappropriately, it could harm the equipment or present a safety risk. Numerous things, such as poor grounding, a weak or loose battery, or a worn-out connection to the battery, might lead to the rectifier failing.
  • For instance, replacing the regulator rectifier in an automobile after it fails could be expensive and time-consuming. However, a significant element acting as a barrier that may hinder market expansion is the high cost of acquiring semiconductor rectifiers. A bridge rectifier costs more since it needs four diodes to function.
  • The COVID-19 outbreak has had a substantial impact on the global market for semiconductor rectifiers. Due to the slowdown and shortage of workers worldwide, production facilities for electronics and semiconductors had been put on hold. Also, travel restrictions and facility closures coupled with the COVID-19 epidemic have significantly and persistently reduced manufacturing utilization, which impacted the growth of the Semiconductor Rectifiers Market in 2020.
  • However, by early 2021 the market had experienced a strong recovery rate as a result of the widespread demand for installing loT devices across a variety of industries and the quickly expanding initiatives for smart cities and smart grid technologies.

Key Trends by Market Segment

By Product Type: Three-phase product type segment held the largest market share in the Global Semiconductor Rectifier Market in 2021.

  • Three-phase rectifiers have an input of three-phase AV power. Structures require three/six diodes and are joined with the transformer’s each phase of the secondary winding. Three-phase rectifiers are adopted in substitution of single-phase rectifiers for the reduction of ripple factor.
  • Three phases are recommended when comparing the two types of rectifiers because it has a high-power output and does not need an additional filter to lower the ripple factor. As a result, three-phase rectifiers have a higher transformer utilization factor and are more efficient than single-phase semiconductor rectifiers.

Global Semiconductor Rectifier MarketRecent Developments Related to Major and Emerging Companies

  • In January 2021, Toshiba has released CUHS15F60, CUHS15S60, CUHS20F60, and CUHS20S60, four 60 V Schottky barrier diode (SBD) products. These products are suitable for rectifying power supply lines that need to increase the voltage to extend their lineup. The balance between the forward voltage and reverse current is important for the CUHS15F60 and CUHS20F60 devices, which have less forward voltage. However, the ultra-low forward voltage models CUHS15S60 and CUHS20S60 place a strong emphasis on lowering the forward voltage.
  • In October 2020, SOMOS (a fabless semiconductor company) was purchased by STMicroelectronics. Through this acquisition, STMicroelectronics improved its expertise, intellectual property, and Front-End Modules roadmaps for the IoT and 5G industries. The development of ST’s roadmap for RF Front-End Modules for the 5G infrastructure industry was aided by SOMOS technology and resources.
  • In June 2019, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc., launched eight 100 V and 200 V devices in the eSMP series SMP (DO-220AA) package for expanding its portfolio of FRED Pt Ultrafast recovery rectifiers. This includes the first device in the market to deliver current ratings of up to 2 A.
