The global market is in its growth stage, however, it contains great potential across many industry verticals. Electric power is an essential component in modern society; the absence of power supply will have devastating repercussions on human life. The transmission system is loaded to their limits and power trading with varying load patterns can contribute to an increasing congestion in urban cities. IGBT and Thyristor were developed to take advantage of the short switching times and low switching losses of the Metal-oxide-semiconductor field effect transistor (MOSFET) and higher breakdown voltage and low conduction losses of the Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT), to fulfill the demands of the current electric system.

In developed economies like North America and Europe, the refurbishment and replacement of aging power infrastructure are the major driving force behind the growth of the IGBT market. The European energy companies are the pioneers in harnessing energy from wind farms, hydro plant and solar panel with underground and underwater transmission lines. These applications are driving the market in the Europe.

The key drivers of the IGBT and Thyristor ecosystem are: aging power Infrastructure in developed geographical regions, demand replacement, increasing number of offshore wind farm and the government incentivization to establish HVDC grid, de-carbonization of power system and deployment of smart grid. The market, in spite of its exceptional demand; still has some restraints in its market growth. The key market restraints can be classified as: High Cost Factor, High Level of Expenditure, and lack of awareness. The high-tech power grid will increase power trading among the neighboring nations which would be a burning issue for the Global market in the days to come, while developments/advancements in power electronics would be a winning imperative for the existing as well as new entrance.

Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
Imagine if you will, a retail floor so densely packed with sensors that they can pick up the movements of insects scurrying across a store aisle. Or a component of a piece of factory equipment so well-instrumented that its digital twin provides resolution down to the micrometer.
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor.
