Global Power Factor Corrector (PFC) Market Highlights Over 2019 - 2028

The global power factor corrector (PFC) market garnered a revenue of USD 1152000 Thousand in 2019 and is further expected to reach USD 1685429.9 Thousand by the end of 2028 by growing with a CAGR of 4.37% during the forecast period, i.e., 2020-2028. The growth of the market can be attributed to the growing need for correct power supply amongst the end users, such as data centers, manufacturing and other industries, followed by the increasing focus of the government of nations to enhance energy-efficiency in electrical systems. Backed by the growing adoption of IoT in the recent years, and the increase in spending in IoT, the number of connected devices and other computer-based systems has grown significantly. The projected spending on IoT by the end of 2024 is expected to reach around USD 1 Trillion. Moreover, in the year 2021, the spending on IT data centers were estimated to be close to USD 240 Billion. This, as a result, has significantly raised the need for data centers for storage of enormous amount of data. The equipment used in the data centers are highly susceptible to power fluctuations and hence require power factor correction devices to ensure a lag-free electrical supply. This is expected to drive the demand for PFCs, and in turn drive the market growth. Moreover, in the end user industries, there has been a surge in demand for power factor correctors as these devices improve the reactive power and reduce harmonics in the equipment. Besides this, with the introduction of PFC integrated circuits (ICs), these correctors are now being utilized widely in commercial, enterprises, and for military purposes, due to the lack of reliable power management systems.

PFCs are also predominantly used in the plant distribution systems as they act as reactive current generators. Furthermore, the utilization of PFCs also ensures increase in the lifespan of the electrical equipment, which ultimately lowers the cost of operations amongst the end users. This is also expected to drive the growth of the global power factor corrector market in the coming years.

Global Power Factor Corrector (PFC) Market Segmentation Synopsis

The global power factor corrector market is segmented on the basis of material into silicon-based, silicon carbide-based, and gallium-nitride based PFC devices, out of which, the silicon carbide-based (SiC) PFC devices segment is expected to hold the largest market share and further attain a revenue of USD 1291380.7 Thousand by the end of 2028. The segment is also expected to witness growth by growing with the highest CAGR of 4.58% during the forecast period. Silicon carbide has a wider bandgap and can provide greater efficient power. As a result, it is an ideal material for PFCs, and is used widely for heavy industrial machinery. SiC-based PFC devices are primarily deployed in electric vehicles owing to their small size as compared to other materials. The market is further segmented on the basis of type into active, passive, and dynamic PFCs. Amongst these segments, the active PFC segment is expected to garner the largest market revenue of USD 1105434.2 Thousand in 2028, up from USD 716417.3 Thousand in 2019. Further, based on approach, the market is segmented into distributed, group, centralized, combined, and automatic, out of which, the combined PFC segment is anticipated to garner the largest market revenue of USD 461271.5 Thousand in 2028. In the year 2021, the segment is expected to reach USD 338513 Thousand. Further, on the basis of end user vertical, the market is segmented into mining industries, automotive industries, consumer electronics, medical & healthcare industries, electric power industries, military & defense, and others. Amongst these segments, the mining industries segment is expected to hold the largest revenue of USD 433326.5 Thousand by the end of 2028, up from USD 290453.8 Thousand in 2019.
