Rise in demands for electric vehicles

An increase has been witnessed in shift toward electric vehicles across the globe. Furthermore, there are hazardous impact of fossil fuel vehicles in terms of greenhouse gas emission and air pollution on environment. Electric vehicles are environment friendly and does not emit any pollutants and offers a sustainable alternative. There is an increase in the advancement of the electric and electronic components of electric vehicles such as battery systems and motors. All of these developments make electric vehicles a significant alternative to the IC engines. Due to such advancements the global demand of the electric vehicles has increased drastically. According to the data provided by IEA, the sales of electric vehicles in 2022 is 6.6 million.

Power electronics are crucial components of any electrical system, as they help in conditioning of power from the available source to the constrains as required by a component in the electrical loop. As a result, the power electronics sector is witnessing fast development and innovation as businesses strive to manufacture more efficient, and cost-effective components to fulfil the EV market's expectations. This is expected to result in the growth of the automotive power electronics market share.

Increasing trend for electrification across the automotive industry

A surge in trend has been witnessed in the shift toward electrification across the entire automotive industry. In the initial stages, electrification was mainly restricted to the consumer side of things, with developments and innovations being mainly restricted to consumer automobiles. However, in the recent years, the commercial sector has started the adoption of electric vehicles into their arsenal. For instance, in December 2022, Tesla delivered its first fully electric truck, the Tesla Semi to PepsiCo for use across their Frito-Lay plant in Modesto, California. The occurrence of such instances is expected to grow as the commercial sector gradually shifts toward electric vehicles.

Automotive Power Electronics Market by Drive Type

With the rise in trend for electrification, there would be greater need for power electronics components. Power electronics that can handle higher voltage and currents, withstand tough environmental situation, and can operate easily at higher frequencies are expected to drive development of power electronics component and is anticipated to result in the growth of the power electronics market in automotive industry.

High investment cost

The production of power electronics is an expensive venture. This is due to the complexity of power electronics components, which necessitates the use of specialized equipment, materials, and production methods. Furthermore, the manufacturing of power electronics requires cleanroom spaces. This is since power electronics components are often produced using semiconductor manufacturing procedures that need a clean environment to avoid contamination. Building cleanrooms are costly, as they are hard to maintain and require major competanace and specific equipment to operate efficiently.

Development, testing and verification of the power electronics components should be done with a proper routine to check their reliability and safety. As expenditures associated with the research and development and manufacturing of automotive power electronics are substantially high.

This necessitates a substantial investment in engineering and testing resources. Thus, the high requirement of investments in the manufacturing of power electronics is expected to restrain the growth of the automotive power electronics market.
