Power demand in the modern system and various other industries are exponentially increasing, which will become easy to handle with the implementation of
Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor
(IGBT). IGBT is a power switching transistor used as an electronic switch with high efficiency and fast switching capacity. It is a three-terminal power semiconductor device. This device finds much other application in pulse modulating and phase control among others and competes with various other semiconductor devices. Due to its ability to reduce switch losses as well as its great performance and reliability with higher efficiency, IGBT is gaining demand in overall electronics applications.
IGBT is one of the cost-effective solutions to the power management system to enhance energy conservation, which will also replace the old monolithic form of transistor systems such as Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor (MOSFET) and Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT). The major application of the IGBT module product includes hybrid electric and electric vehicles, consumer electronics, inverters, and uninterruptible power supply (UPS).

Benefits, Trends, and Future of IGBT in Various Sectors
In the recent years, the easement and innovation in the automotive industry brought robust power electronic system with improved functionality and cost-effective solution, which completely reduced the challenges in the way of electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs). IGBT is one of them, which brought the reliability of electric vehicle power train and lessened the serious technological challenges. Also, the advent of IGBT is a diametrical expansion of the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.
BYD, a Chinese automaker, revealed the latest car-level IGBT technology known as IGBT 4.0. This company has many achievements in developing IGBT independently. The vehicles of BYD is adopting its self-developed IGBT power devices and raising the company’s ambition of developing a world-leading platform of new energy. This technology will reduce the need for electricity and provide a longer service life under any conditions. Various companies in other countries such as the U.S., Japan, and in Europe are adopting IGBT technology for new energy vehicles without any restrictions.
In the future, technology will be producing highly reliable and lead-free IGBT modules for hybrid vehicles. The use of IGBT modules for electric power conversion for the future will continue to increase the sales volume of the hybrid electric vehicles following the sales of electric vehicles. Many new manufacturers will enter the market and escalate the development with other new technologies.
Consumer electronics is one of the basic necessities of daily life that includes various power electronic devices. These electronic devices are available in medium to the ultra-high-power range. The capacity of IGBT is enough to handle high currents range by blocking the voltage up to a few limit. The employment of IGBT in power electronics devices, such as inverters and converters, makes it easier for switching purposes and it is cost-effective as well. However, the government is also focusing on the manufacturing of electronics to making it less of an electricity absorber, which will help the environment to stay green for a long time. Furthermore, the increasing focus on low carbon environment will develop the technology of renewable energy resources, and the features of IGBT such as low power loss and high rated currents will increase the adoption of renewable energy resources.
The highlighted features of thermal performance and the high-frequency system will grow the demand for IGBT in various industries. Smart grid deployment and decarbonized power system will also boost the demand for IGBT, which will provide various new opportunities for the new and established players.
