Power transistor sales to grow 11% in 2022 – IC Insights

electronics assembly

Power transistor sales are on pace to grow 11% in 2022 and expected to reach a sixth-straight record high level, totaling $24.5 billion this year, primarily because of the highest increase in the average selling price (ASP) for products in this large discrete semiconductor segment in more than a decade, reports IC Insights.

The IC Insights report stated that tight supplies and shortages of power transistors and other widely used semiconductors have kept ASPs high in a number of manufacturing industrial sectors—especially in automotive and industrial equipment—despite recent slowdowns in economic growth.

The string of record-high sales for power transistors is projected to end in 2023 when revenues are forecast to drop 2% to $24.0 billion as a result of a slowdown in global economic growth next year and a 4% drop in the average selling price of devices. Figure 1 shows the power transistor market is expected to begin another growth cycle in 2024, with annual sales steadily increasing through 2026 and hitting $28.9 billion, which represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 5.5%, based on the 3Q22 Update outlook.
