The power electronics market is expected to grow from US$ 43.37 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach US$ 65.36 billion by 2030; it is estimated to record a CAGR of 5.3% from 2022 to 2030.

Power electronics plays an important role in various aspects of the information & communication technology (ICT) industry. Power electronics circuits convert the alternating current (AC) from the grid to the direct current (DC) needed for various ICT devices. This is achieved using diode rectifiers, thyristors, and switching transistors in various configurations. Additionally, power electronics converters adjust the DC voltage to specific levels required by different components within an ICT system. This is vital for efficient operation and prevents damage to sensitive electronics. Boost converters, buck converters, and buck-boost converters are employed for DC-DC conversion. Power electronics advancements continue to drive innovation and improve efficiency in various ICT applications. As the demand for faster, more reliable, and sustainable ICT infrastructure increases, the role of power electronics will become even more crucial in the coming years.
