Technological Advancements Leading To Demand Increasing Device Densities
Manufacturers have to find suitable replacements for existing products to accommodate the consumer needs. Moore's law has been in place for decades reducing the size of the wafer, while increasing the device density, this has been the way to cater to growing need for faster processing. The Tri-Gate transistor design released by Intel Corporation has laid the foundation for the development of better 3D-structured transistors that are capable of enhanced performance. This introduction of 3D to the design has led to vast improvements over the planar transistor structure. These advantages quantify themselves in the form of improved performance, reduced leakage current, huge increase in the device density, and a reduction in susceptibility of the transistor to charged particle single-event upsets. This decrease in size has led to an increase in the device density and upgraded the functional capacity of the chip. The ability to increase the number of devices in the chip influences performance of the complete system, while reducing the cost of each wafer.
Consumer Electronics Has the Highest Market Share
Transistors form an integral part of the majority of the consumer electronics sector. They have applications in many devices, from radios to smartphones, tablets, and notebooks. The newest smartphones in the market have about a billion transistors ensuring faster functioning of the device. The growth of smartphones is on a decline in the recent years, as it has already established itself as a matured market. The next-generation phones would be focused entirely on improving the performance of phones with better specifications. Integrating more transistors is expected to lead to smaller phones with faster processing, which caters perfectly to the consumer needs. Designing chips in a new way can increase the performance of consumer wearables by a long margin. Major transistor companies, such as SuVolta, have been involved in the field of research to improve the efficiency of transistors. Innovative techniques have been discovered to improve the next-generation transistors market, and the market has the potential to grow at a rapid pace during the forecast period.
North America & Europe Holds the Major Market Share among Other Regions
There exists a very delicate scenario for the next - generation transistors market across the globe, at present. Next generation transistors entered the market very recently with limited applications, observed. The market for next generation transistors is dominated by North America and Europe, followed by Asia-Pacific. Approximately, half of the revenues of this market is generated by the companies based in North America. The region accounts for the highest number of applications of transistors, with the reason being region’s lion’s share of the market. The developing economies of China and Japan have huge manufacturing bases for electronics and hence, hold the potential to become major players in the transistors market.
Key Developments in the Market
- May 2017: Infineon technologies announced the Start of Mainstream SiC Adoption for tipping point for wide band gap technology signals. The past few years have been notable for the increased rate of investment in developing alternative semiconductor materials such as silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN). Further improvements in SiC transistor manufacturing costs in recent times signaled a watershed moment – the turning point for SiC power semiconductors to be successfully mass-produced and implemented in electronic designs for a wide range of applications. The lower price and increased availability of SiC has resulted in renewed demand from power designers who are under pressure to address legislative and commercial requirements for improved energy efficiency and to keep up with the never-ending expectations for system cost reduction that have been set.
