Global Rectifiers Market Report 2014-2018

According to the "Global Rectifiers Market 2014-2018" report Rectifiers are the electronic devices that convert AC to DC. It includes one or more diodes, electronic components that conduct current in only one direction. Rectifiers are predominantly used as electronic components of DC power supplies and high-voltage direct current power transmission systems. Because of their predominant rectifying characteristics, they are predominantly used for power and signal conditioning in numerous applications such as power plants, and military and aerospace. They can be used as clamping networks for SMPS, dampers, and modulator diodes for the deflection circuits in CRTs freewheeling diodes for inductive loads. They are are also used in signaling, switching, electroplating, electrocoating, and processing applications.

Analysts forecast the Global Rectifiers market will grow at a CAGR of 8.45 percent over the period 2013-2018.

The Report recognizes the following companies as the key players in Global Rectifiers Market: ON Semiconductor Corp., Shindengen Electric Manufacturing Co. Ltd, STMicroelectronics N.V., Vishay Intertechnology Inc, Alpha and Omega Semiconductor Ltd, Analog Devices Inc., Bourns Inc., Diode Inc.

UPS has three main components: rectifier, inverter, and battery. The rectifier converts AC power to DC power and stores the line power in the battery. In the event of power failure, the inverter supplies the continuous power to the electric equipment. The battery stores the power for use when the power source is interrupted and provides uninterrupted power to the inverter. The demand for UPS has increased manifold because of power outages in rural and urban areas. Also, an increase in information networks has compelled organizations to adopt up-to-date semiconductor technologies and control systems to provide extended battery backup power to maintain their employees' critical services as operational. UPS could also help in protecting hardware and devices from damage during power outages. UPS are widely used for applications in the Oil and Gas, Petrochemical, and Aerospace and Defense industries, where reliable power is demanded. Thus, the growing demand for UPS will consequently increase the demand for semiconductor components such as rectifiers.

Global Rectifiers Market 2014-2018, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the Americas, and the EMEA and APAC regions; it also covers the Global Rectifiers market landscape and its growth prospects in the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

According to the report, one of the major drivers is the use of rectifiers in power supplies. Power supplies are used for applications such as charging devices in computers, cellphones, electronic equipment, and electronic vehicles. The increasing demand for electronic gadgets worldwide is expected to fuel the demand for power supplies further. This, in turn, is expected to have an impact on the demand for rectifiers in DC power supplies.

Further, the report states that the cyclical nature of the Semiconductor industry is one of the major challenges in the market. Rectifier manufactures depend on OEMs, which, in turn, depend on end-users. This often leads to a demand-supply gap and an inventory pile-up. Hence, any demand fluctuations from end-users indirectly affects rectifier manufacturers.
