The discrete diodes market is expected to witness significant growth during the forecasted period.

Market Overview:

A diode, sometimes known as a discrete diode, is an electrical component that has ideally zero resistance to current in one direction and ideally infinite resistance in the other. The semiconductor diode is the most frequent form of diode employed because it conducts electricity when forward-biased, resulting in a lower voltage drop when compared to the flowing current. Some of the drivers driving demand in the discrete diodes market include rapid growth and proliferation of consumer, industrial, medical, and car electronics, as well as innovation in chip architecture and semiconductor production. The growing demand for IoT devices is also a factor propelling the discrete diode industry forward.

In the data and communication industry, there is a growing demand for power-efficient semiconductors.

Due to digital transformation, an increase in remote work, and increased use of Internet services, traffic flow has been rising. Data centres and telecom base stations have seen an increase in capital investment as a result. As a result, there is an increase in demand for power supply equipment, and its market is anticipated to expand. For instance, Tagore Technology Inc will deliver a family of second-generation RF switches with 10-100W average power in September 2021. The TS8x product series is ideal for switching post-power amplifier (PA) harmonics filters in tactical and military communications, land mobile radios, and private mobile radios. Customers can use Tagore's TS8x switch family to replace all traditional PIN diode-based switches, which need several passive components and a high-voltage bias supply, saving substantial board space and total cost and simplifying RF front-end design.

Based on product type, the Schottky diode is expected to hold a significant share.

Schottky diode is predicted to have a considerable share based on product type due to its application in power-consuming sectors to mitigate power loss. Data centres and communication base stations are equipped with power semiconductors (diodes) that effectively convert (rectify) the AC power they get from utility companies into DC power. But, the power loss (steady-state loss), which occurs when power is delivered to semiconductors, continues to be the main problem. One approach to lowering power loss in power semiconductors is to make a thinner substrate element by shortening the distance that the energy travels. For instance, Fuji Electric Co., Ltd. announced the release of its 2nd-generation discrete Sic-Schottky Barrier Diode (SBD) line of power semiconductors in November 2021, which would help data centres and telecom base stations save energy. This series employs a SiC (silicon carbide) substrate that is about one-third the thickness of FE's traditional first-generation SiC-SBD Series, as well as a redesigned chip structure that has successfully decreased steady-state loss by 16%.

Asia Pacific region is expected to hold a significant market share in the Discrete diodes market due to Increasing investment in smart city projects across developing nations.

A smart city is a type of urban development project in which a city's infrastructure is outfitted with various information and communication technologies. Countries throughout the Asia Pacific region are concentrating on the construction of smart cities to better manage assets and resources. The various market stakeholders, such as the respective government, ICT service providers, and smart device makers, play an important role in the implementation of smart city solutions. The development of network infrastructure to support communication will be accelerated by investments in smart city projects. Additionally, developing nations have made large investments in smart city initiatives. The smart cities project, for instance, stipulates that the Indian central government will provide Rs. 48,000 crores (US$ 6 billion) in money over five years to aid in the mission's implementation, or an average of Rs. 100 crore (US$ 12.5 million) every year for each city, as per its guidelines. The Smart Cities Mission will be fully executed by June 2023, and by that time, all smart cities are expected to have completed their efforts. As a result, there will be a rise in the need for linked products like smart lights, smart meters, smart appliances, and telecom equipment in the region, which will in turn raise demand for discrete diodes.

Key Developments:  

January 2023: Diodes Incorporated (Diodes) has released its first Silicon Carbide (Sic) Schottky barrier diodes (SBD). These wide-bandgap SBDs provide considerable improvements in efficiency and high-temperature dependability, while also meeting market needs for lower system operating costs and minimum maintenance. AC-DC, DC-DC, and DC-AC switching converters, photovoltaic inverters, uninterruptible power supplies, and industrial motor driving applications are all possible with these devices. These devices can also be employed in other circuits, such as power factor correction boost converters.

  • January 2023: Vishay (VSH) has added additional rectifiers to its diode lineup. In its Gen 7 platform, VSH introduced two new 1200 V FRED Pt Hyperfast rectifiers, the VS-E7MH0112-M3 and VS-E7MH0112HM3c. These devices, which have higher reverse recovery energy and a shorter recovery time, can also be used as high-frequency rectifiers for bootstrap driver functionality. Given the above-mentioned powerful qualities, Vishay remains well-positioned to gain traction in industrial and automotive applications with this recent move.
  • May 2022: Micross Components, Inc., a leading provider of high-reliability microelectronic product and service solutions for aerospace, defense, space, medical, and industrial applications, announced the acquisition of Semtech Corporation's High-Reliability Discrete Diodes and Assemblies business. The addition of Semtech's high-reliability discrete products to Micross' platform strengthens the Company's position as a one-stop source of supply for high-reliability electronic goods and services.

Covid-19 Impact on the Discrete Diodes Market

The COVID-19 pandemic had a massive influence on the global economy and technological industries. Several markers, including discrete diodes, have been severely impacted. The supply chain was interrupted as a result of the global shutdown of various manufacturing plants. Most industries, though, are projected to restore momentum as immunization campaigns progress. The growing acceptance of work-from-home opportunities is boosting communication, consumer electronics, and other applications globally, which is likely to lead to modest growth in this market during the forecast period. Furthermore, the active participation of governments and industry in recovering losses is expected to stimulate the economy.
