Infineon Technologies AG remained the world's leading supplier of power semiconductors for the tenth time in a row. This was the result of a study by the North American market research institute IHS Inc. In an overall declining market Infineon held a market share of 11.8 percent compared with 12 percent in the previous year, the survey concludes. The company's number two competitor Toshiba had a market share of 7.1 percent, followed by Mitsubishi with 6.9 percent. It is notable that Infineon's lead over its second-place competitor increased from 3.8 to 4.7 percentage points in a year-on-year comparison. During the 2012 study period, the market volume for power semiconductors dropped by nearly 16 percent to US Dollar 15 billion.

"Power semiconductors are an indispensable part of everyday life. This market is highly significant for us and we have increased our lead over our competitors," says Dr. Reinhard Ploss, CEO of Infineon Technologies AG. "We will do everything possible to defend our leading role with product innovations and system solutions." Due to its many years of experience and extensive understanding of highly diverse customer applications, Infineon can offer products, solutions and services that enable customers to be faster and more successful than with the products of competitors.

Power semiconductors for high energy efficiency
Power semiconductors are primarily needed whenever electrical energy is converted or when electrical equipment, machines and systems are controlled. In cars, they are used in the drive train, convenience electronics (electric windows) and safety systems (power-assisted steering etc.). In addition, neither a hybrid nor an electric car could move without these components. Power semiconductors are an important part of the electronic control system in all types of drives. They are also used to control motors in high-speed trains, regional trains and last but not least, trains used for suburban and metropolitan public transportation. Additional fields of application include wind power and photovoltaic plants, server power supplies, notebooks, smartphones, tablet computers, consumer electronics and mobile infrastructure as well as light management systems.

Depending on the application, power semiconductors are available as discretes, connected as modules or constructed as stacks. They control and convert electrical current in areas ranging from only a few watts to many megawatts. The power components that continually take physics to its limits need very little current themselves but ensure greater energy efficiency in the widest range of applications.
