Global Automotive Thyristor (SCR) Industry Outlook

Product Definition:

A thyristor is a four-layer semiconductor device that can be turned on or off by applying a current to the gate electrode. Thyristors are used as switches in power converters, motor controls, and other applications.

Unidirectional Thyristor:

Unidirectional thyristor, also known as one-way or static complementing relay is a device used in electronic control units to create an electrical circuit that allows current to flow in only one direction. It is primarily used for switching low power supply sources and can be considered as an alternative to the two-way or bilateral complementing Relay.

Bidirectional Thyristor:

A bidirectional thyristor is a special type of Thyristor which can be used as both, an open-collector and a short-circuit detector. It has the advantage over conventional thyristors in that it can handle high voltages (up to 35 Kv) and current loads (up to 1 A).

Application Insights:

Passenger car application segment led the global automotive thyristor (SCR) market in 2017 and is projected to maintain its dominance over the forecast period. The introduction of advanced safety features, such as anti-lock braking system, electronic stability control and traction control systems are boosting product demand in passenger cars. Moreover, growing penetration of thyristors across various vehicle segments is expected to drive their demand over the forecast period.

Commercial vehicles application segment accounted for a significant share in 2017 owing to increasing adoption of electric power steering systems along with other electrical accessories for commercial vehicles such as lighting, windshield wipers and heating/air conditioning systems. Growing adoption of commercial trucks equipped with thyristors based electrical accessories is further expected to drive their demand over the next eight years or so.

Regional Analysis:

Asia Pacific region accounted for the largest revenue share in 2017 and is expected to continue its dominance over the forecast period. The regional growth can be attributed to increasing automotive production in countries, such as China, India, Japan and South Korea. Asia Pacific is also projected to emerge as a lucrative market for thyristor manufacturers due to growing demand from various application segments including passenger cars and commercial vehicles.

The European region accounted for a significant revenue share in 2017 owing to technological advancements coupled with stringent emission norms implemented by governments across Europe. Countries such as Germany have been observed exhibiting high adoption of thyristors since their incorporation into automobiles over two decades ago; however, other countries are still observing limited or no usage of SCR devices within automobiles despite their availability since then (i.e., Italy). This scenario may change drastically with upcoming technological advancements that enable improved performance characteristics of thyristors across all applications considered relevant by government regulations (i.e., Euro 6c/6b standards).

Growth Factors:

  • Increasing demand for electric vehicles: The automotive thyristor (SCR) market is expected to benefit from the increasing demand for electric vehicles. This is because the thyristor (SCR) helps in efficient power control and conversion, which is essential for electric vehicles.
  • Rising focus on energy efficiency: There has been a rising focus on energy efficiency across industries, including the automotive sector. This is likely to result in an increased demand for thyristors (SCRs), as they help improve energy efficiency in various applications such as motor drives, lighting systems, and heating & cooling systems.
  • Growing popularity of hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles: The popularity of hybrid and plug-in hybrid vehicles is growing rapidly across the globe due to their superior fuel economy and low emissions levels as compared to traditional gasoline or diesel-powered cars. This is likely to create a positive growth environment for the automotive thyristor (SCR) market in coming years.
