Intelligent Power Module Market Research, 2031

The global intelligent power module market was valued at $1.6 billion in 2021, and is projected to reach $3.7 billion by 2031, growing at a CAGR of 8.7% from 2022 to 2031.

Intelligent power modules (IPMs) are hybrid power devices which use advanced technology and combine high speed and low loss insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT) with optimized protection circuitry and gate drive. IPMs use advance current sense IGBT chips to provide highly effective short-circuit and over-current protection, which allows the power device current to be continuously monitored. IPM’s integrated under-voltage and over-temperature lock-out protection further enhances system reliability. Finally, the automatically assembled intelligent power modules are compact and designed to reduce time to market, cost and the system size.

Power management and power conservation are the important reasons for the use of intelligent power modules or IPM module, in the electrical machines as well as in the technology field. This factor is expected to gain further importance during the forecast period in light of global warming concerns. Globally, machines are versatile, compact, and efficient in doing what they are made to do, so much so that they have taken over a lot of activities that were done manually. The demand for machines and electronic equipment has increased tremendously in the past years and is expected to be maintained or even surpass the earlier demand in the coming years. The update of automation in different industries, especially in the form of process automation and control automation equipment is also expected to bolster the intelligent power module industry.

An intelligent power module is an important aspect required in electronics, electrical, and the technology field. A range of equipment in these industries utilize electricity and an intelligent power module is the device used to manage this flow of electricity to ensure that the equipment works properly. Moreover, the use of technology is increasing in various industries. Meanwhile, the complexities involved in the manufacturing process act as a restraint on the intelligent power module market. They result in a high barrier of entry for new players too. Furthermore, this also increases cost of manufacturing and selling the device, causing an associated slowdown in its market growth. In such cases, end-users can opt for alternative products or substitutes such as power modules, instead of using an IPM module. On the other hand, the automotive industry is expected to provide significant opportunities to the intelligent power module market during the forecast period. It is one of the important intelligent power module market trends. This is on account of new technologies in the automotive industry, especially those in electric vehicles.
