Product Launch (Blog)

Apr, 04 2023

In 2020, STMicroelectronics Announced to Release of 26 New Schottky Diodes in Low-Profile SMA and SBM Flat Packages


In the last few years, the demand for discrete diodes increased significantly and is expected to rise further during the forecast period. The increasing need for high-energy, low-power devices positively influences the discrete diodes market growth. The "power diode" is expected to be the fastest-growing product segment during the forecast period. Power diodes are used as voltage multipliers, rectifier diodes, and freewheeling diodes, contributing to market growth. Furthermore, currently, electronic manufacturers want those components which are compact, fast, and capable of meeting growing production efficiency. These market growth determinants will highly contribute to the market's growth in the upcoming years.

Data Bridge Market Research shows that the Discrete Diodes Market accounted for USD 2.53 billion in 2021, expected to reach USD 4.17 billion by 2029. The market is expected to grow with a CAGR of 6.46% from 2022 to 2029.

 "Rise in the device miniaturization is expected to drive the market growth"

  • In recent years, packaging technologies and electronic assembly have become more complex. As a result, manufacturers in the discrete diode market have focused on decreasing the size of their products. Responding to the industry's demand for the portable products, the manufacturers of the discrete diode are introducing ultra-small discrete diode devices and expanding their miniaturized discrete diode product portfolio. New manufacturing technologies are also being developed to miniaturize discrete diodes and fulfill the increasing demand from end users for electronic parts or component solutions in ultra-small packages. The increasing demand for small and portable electronic products is expected to increase the demand for smaller passive components, eventually boosting market growth.

What restraints the growth of the discrete diodes market?

"Inadequate technological innovation"

The increasing preference of product producers for integrated circuits is expected to hamper the growth of the discrete diodes market. The increasing emphasis of end users on integrated circuits and the lack of technological innovation and development in the discrete diodes market are the major challenges that will continue detaining the market from 2023 to 2030.

Segmentation: Global Discrete Diodes Market

The discrete diodes market is segmented into product and end user.

  • On the basis of product, the market is segmented into small signal diode, power diode, radio frequency, and microwave diode.
  • On the basis of end user, the market is segmented into automotive, communications, computer and computer peripherals, consumer electronics, and others.

Regional Insights: Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the discrete diodes market

Asia-Pacific is expected to dominate the market and grow significantly because of the strong presence of semiconductor industries in Taiwan, South Korea, China, and India. Moreover, the growing demand for green energy power generation will further boost the growth of the discrete diodes market in this region.

In addition, the Europe region is likely to register the highest growth rate during the forecast period because of the growth and expansion of the automotive industry in this region. Furthermore, the growing production of discrete diodes for the electronics industry will further boost the market growth in this region.

Recent Developments: Global Discrete Diodes Market

  • In 2020, Infineon Technologies AG announced to launch of its industry-leading 'TRENCHSTOP BIPOLAR7 technology'. This launch will be perfect for power factor correction, industrial motor drives, photovoltaics, and uninterruptible power supplies.
  • In 2020, STMicroelectronics announced releasing 26 new Schottky diodes in low-profile SMA and SBM flat packages with 25-200 V voltage ratings and current ratings of 1-5 A. As a result of their low voltage, these devices consume less energy in both consumer and industrial applications.
