Passive Components For Power Electronics

More and more power electronics applications are demanding pre-assembly standard blocks, which can be combined to meet custom requirements. As presented in this report, laminated busbar is then the basis for these blocks, and the market and supply-chain is already being re-shaped. Mersen has acquired Eldre, Methode is partnering with SBE, and Rogers is entering power module packaging activity. All these evolutions are re-shaping a market that is quite small (250M$) compared to capacitors (+600M$) or resistors, but still booming.

Capacitors are evolving in the same way. Specific capacitors for renewable energies are available and so, following this trend, the market is exploding. Growth is supported by these new markets, as shown in our forecasts. The connectors market is also following the same trends.

For resistors, inductors and transformers, it is slightly different. We have not observed a noticeable breakthrough. These markets, even if they are more and more structured, are local markets, with family-owned companies (or companies with this spirit), doing business as usual. A few innovative companies can take a big part of the new applications with new product innovations and technology developments such as EBG resistors or Arcol.


An inverter is an assembly of power modules and passive components together. This creates a strong link between components, and a trend toward more integration. This trend not only impacts the growth of the laminated busbar or capacitor market; it also affects product developments. Companies are now working on joint developments. The blocks, designed to fit each other, can provide the expected improvements in compactness, standardization and modularity, efficiency, etc….

This report analyzes these trends, technical aspects and the supply chain evolution. Our forecast and analysis projects how these factors will evolve in the future, and what to anticipate.
