    The purpose of this white paper is to facilitate greater awareness as well as practical insights concerning the market-oriented, market-driven and market-focused roles that power semiconductors perform over a very broad spectrum of industries and in society as a whole. Annual revenues from power semiconductor devices are expected to more than double through 2030. This comes as no surprise, as these high-tech electronic components constitute THE key enablers to tackling major challenges on the path to an energy-wise society, namely decarbonization and digitization. Similar to the role played by semiconductor integrated circuits (ICs) in computers, data storage and communication applications, an extensive use of power semiconductors lies at the heart of modern power electronics. This includes renewable power generation and transmission, electromobility, automated factories, energy-efficient data centres, smart cities and smart homes, to mention just a few applications.
