IGBT Shortage in Electric Vehicles: What You Need to Know
The IGBT shortage (Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors) in the Electric Vehicle Industry is due to several factors, including:
• The COVID-19 pandemic.
• The war in Ukraine.
• Increased demand for IGBTs from the automotive and renewable energy industries.
The automotive industry, Electric Vehicles are a major user of IGBTs, and the renewable energy industry is also increasing its demand for IGBTs, as these devices are used in inverters for solar and wind power systems. The IGBT shortage is expected to continue for some time, but it is not clear how long it will last. Some analysts believe that the shortage could last until 2024.
