DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jun 6, 2018--The "Power MOSFET Market by Type - Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast, 2017-2023" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The global power MOSFET market was valued at $3,730 million in 2016, and is expected to reach $6,340 million in 2023, growing at a CAGR of 7.4% from 2017 to 2023.

A power metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor (MOSFET) is a type of metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistor designed to handle significant power levels with optimum power loss.

MOSFET is a type of insulated gate bipolar transistor with high switching speed and enhanced efficiency at low-voltage operations. It utilizes vertical structures with source and drain terminals at opposite sides of the chip. In addition, power MOSFETS are widely used in three modes: n-channel enhancement-mode, p-channel enhancement-mode, or n-channel depletion mode.

MOSFET has gained popularity among various applications such as electronic switches in power management, auto intensity controllers, invertors, generators, and others; power supplies such as DC to DC convertors; and low-voltage motor controllers to regulate the flow of current. The factors that drive the market growth are reduction in the on resistance (RON) of the power MOSFET structures and enhancement of breakdown voltage, which enhance the efficiency and durability of the power device. However, performance issues, such as current leakage at high-voltage operations, and power breakdown hamper the market growth.
