The bipolar power transistors market is projected to show steady growth during the forecast period.

A bipolar power transistor is a type of power semiconductor in which an n-type or p-type base layer is sandwiched between the opposing-type emitter and collector layers. To increase the power dissipation per unit of space, power bipolar transistors are often operated at lower current densities. Larger currents are applied to larger devices. Due to its excellent heat conductivity and low cost, silicon is the most common material utilized to make bipolar power transistors.

Bipolar power transistors are deployed in electronic devices to amplify the weak digital or analogue incoming signals. The market for bipolar power transistors is being positively impacted by the rising use of devices like electric automobiles and motorcycles. Also, due to their small size, bipolar power transistors are widely employed in integrated circuits. Therefore the growing trend for gadget miniaturisation is anticipated to propel the market. Bipolar power transistors are predominately used in devices with high-voltage applications. Other features like high thermal power dissipation capacity, high-temperature applications, and high energy efficiency will also boost the market even further. Therefore, the growing demand for bipolar power transistors in various end-user industries such as automobile, consumer electronics, energy & power and manufacturing is resulting in continuous product launches and innovation by market players. For instance, in March 2023, Japanese electronic pioneer Toshiba launched a 650V discrete insulated gate bipolar transistor for air conditioners' power factor correction circuits and heavy machinery.

However, the lack of skilled manpower, supply chain complexity, and stringent rules and regulations by the government and high & volatile cost of raw materials is obstructing the growth of the global market for bipolar power transistors during the analysis period.

During the anticipation period, the rising demand for BPT in electrical vehicles will support the growth of the global bipolar power transistors market.

Bipolar power transistors are a key component in the development of electric vehicles. In EVs, a bipolar transistor connects directly to the traction motor since it is a high-voltage, high-current device that transforms AC control signals into high-power signals using DC from the vehicle's battery. The deployment of bipolar power transistors reduces power waste and increases mileage. Therefore growing demand for electric vehicles is one of the key factors driving the growth of this market during the projection period. According to a report published by IEA, in 2021, electric vehicle sales quadrupled from the previous year to reach a new high of 6.6 million. In 2021, the market share for electric vehicles was about 10 per cent worldwide, up from just 2 per cent in 2019. With this, there are now over 16.5 million electric vehicles on the road worldwide, which is three times more than there were in 2018. According to the Net Zero Emissions by 2050 Scenario, there will be more than 300 million electric vehicles on the road by 2030, and they will make up 60 per cent of all new car sales.

Moreover, The global market expansion has also been aided by government regulations requiring advanced driver assistance systems. Automotive electronics are crucial for safety and are subjected to high voltages and harsh environments. In response, producers have developed a new lineup of bipolar power transistors for automotive applications.

North America is anticipated to hold a significant amount of the global bipolar power transistor market share during the forecast period.

North American region is anticipated to hold a significant market share in bipolar power transistors. This region will witness high growth during the forecast period owing to rapid technological advancements and rising R&D operations. The growing adoption of the electric vehicle is also propelling demand in this region.  For instance, the IEA database shows that In 2021, 630 000 electric vehicles were sold in the United States, doubling their market share to 4.5 per cent bringing the total stock of electric cars to 2 million in the country. According to the official data, in Canada, a record 86,032 electric cars were registered in 2021, accounting for 5.3 per cent of all new vehicle registrations. Rising government investment to expand the semiconductor industry in their respective countries is also contributing to the expansion of the regional market. For instance, In September 2022, the Biden Administration announced First CHIPS and Science Act. Under this initiative, the government has pledged US$ 50 billion to boost the United States semiconductor industry constructing foundries and providing funding to develop power semiconductors. Prime markets in the North American region are the United States, Canada and Mexico.
