Gate Driver IC Market: Industry Outlook 2027 & Key Trends

Gate Driver IC Market was valued at 1.46 Bn. USD in 2020. MOSFET, one of the segments reviewed in our report is dominating the Gate Driver IC Market.

Gate Driver IC Market Overview:

It is an integrated circuit chip that controls power dissipation, current flow, and heat flow in high-power transistor gates, such as MOSFET gate driver IC and IGBT gate driver IC, and starts smooth switching operations in high-power transistor gates. Gatekeeper MOSFETs are commonly used in switching applications. The isolated gate-electrode of a MOSFET/IGBT forms a capacitor (gate capacitor) that must be charged or discharged every time the transistor is turned on or off. Because each transistor requires a certain gate voltage to turn on, the gate capacitor must be charged to at least that voltage in order for the transistor to turn on. Its driver IC is in charge of controlling this voltage. Gate driver IC market is expected to register CAGR of approximately 5% during the forecast period.

Gate Driver IC Market Dynamics:

In recent years, a substantially higher number of home appliances, electric vehicles, hybrid vehicles (including mild hybrids), and renewable energy goods include on-board dedicated power semiconductor devices. The majority of these applications use power MOSFETs and IGBTs as power switches, while gate drivers and IGBT and MOSFET applications have varied adoption rates. MOSFETs were coupled to more than 60% of gate drivers used in power applications in 2020. Despite this, the revenue disparity between MOSFET and IGBT gate drivers is rapidly closing.

New technical requirements in power transistors is demanding more development in driver ICs:

Owing to the need for isolation integration, single channel and half bridge gate driver ICs will become more popular in the next years. In 2020, half bridge gate driver ICs are thought to have accounted for more than 40% of gate driver revenues. With roughly 30% of sales, single side gate driver ICs were the second most prevalent architecture. For low-mid power, full bridge and three phase gate drivers are commonly used in motor control and inverter applications. In recent years, all major players have begun to provide isolation-integrated devices, the most common of which is the coreless transformer. Many system manufacturers prefer to have isolation in the same package as the driver IC since it allows for further integration. Aside from isolation methods, gate drivers can benefit from specialty applications such as high temperature (HT) operation and other hard environment needs. Because of the material's high Tj and Te performance qualities, SiC-based power switches can withstand high temperatures. Cissoid and X-Rel Semiconductor, for example, are attempting to capitalize on SiC's potential in these niche applications. Some of the MOSFET characteristics are- Gate Driver IC Market 1

GATE driver supply chain is integrating along with rising semiconductor demand:

Other actors in the supply chain have developed to offer alternate solutions for varied power management demands, in addition to gate driver IC manufacturers. Intelligent Power Modules (IPMs) and Plug-and-Play (PnP) gate driver boards are two of the most notable alternatives. To satisfy the demand for small, efficient, and application-specific power management, an IPM combines control, protection, gate driver, and power switching devices in a single package. White goods and motor control account for more than 70% of all IPMs. Moreover, the top five gate driver IC suppliers, including NXP, Infineon, and STMicroelectronics, control more than half of the market, with most of them also competing in the power semiconductor area. The power semiconductor industry is less consolidated than other semiconductor categories like as memory, CPU, and sensors, but it can still present opportunity for enterprises to expand with the correct business model and strategy.

Increasing use of new materials to integrate the drives:

The level of integration will be raised thanks to new materials like SiC and GaN. Both SiC and GaN devices have been in the works for a long time. Companies are shifting their focus away from components and toward system level solutions in order to recuperate costs and maximize profits. Other companies that have traditionally avoided investing in these two materials can benefit from obtaining product portfolios and expertise from other companies.

Gate Driver IC Market Segmentation:

SiC material segment is dominating the market:

SiC semiconductors offer cutting-edge technology in terms of efficiency, form factor, and operating temperature in industrial applications. SiC technology is now widely recognized as a trustworthy silicon alternative. In their product roadmaps, a number of power module and power inverter manufacturers have laid the framework for SiC adoption. Electromagnetic interference (EMI), overvoltage, and overheating are just a few of the design issues SiC can cause. SiC power technology enables optimal efficiency in electric vehicles and other high-power switching applications. To overcome the efficiency limits of classic silicon-based devices, system designers are turning to SiC alternatives. According to EU Semiconductor Manufacturers Council, industry is expected to cross 10 Bn. USD mark very soon and hence, many prominent players are investing in the material use.
