TRIAC Market Segmented By Packaging type such as WaferForm, Box and Reel with Current Allowed such as 6A-10A, 12A-20A, More than 20A
TRIAC, as a semiconductor device has gained traction in recent times due to its applications in small utility electronic gadgets and motors like for speed control of electric fans, light dimmers and many of the small and major computerized household appliances. The main reason to look at this market is the involvement of TRIAC in small scale utility products, which keep up the growth of this market.
The primary and foremost feature for the use of TRIAC over its straight competitors like Triode and SCRs is that TRIAC is bi-directional, which is not the case for Triodes and SCRs. TRIAC abbreviated as Triode for alternating current is not only used for alternating current (AC) but also for direct current (DC).
TRIAC is a three terminal solid state power switching device which can be triggered in conduction by both positive and negative voltage applied to its anode and gate making it a two-quadrant switching gate controlled device, and this feature of TRIAC has gained it various applications in the market.
The primary driver for TRIAC market is the cost factor associated with using one TRIAC in place of two thyristors. The manufacturers would move for a TRIAC in place of two thyristors to cut down their cost of production. Another driver would be the increasing use of household and utility products in the market most of which contains a TRIAC for its functioning.
The major challenge faced by the TRIAC market is that switching in TRIAC is not symmetrical which leads to many problems like a high level of harmonics and EMI problems. These drive the manufacturers to either go for some extra circuitry or keeps the TRIAC use to certain applications.
