Infineon extends lead in power semiconductor market

Infineon Technologies AG of Munich, Germany says that is the market leader in power semiconductors for the twelfth consecutive time. Following the firm's acquisition of International Rectifier at the beginning of 2015, Infineon has a market share of 19.2%. In comparison, Infineon and International Rectifier had a combined market share in 2013 totalling approximately 17.5%, according to US market research institute IHS Inc. Infineon's closest competitor has a market share of 7%, adds the firm.

"Through organic growth and the acquisition of International Rectifier we've made our leadership position for power semiconductors even stronger compared to the global competition," says Dr. Reinhard Ploss, CEO of Infineon Technologies AG. "Our leading technology expertise and our system understanding mean we will profit disproportionately from the forecasted growth."
For the market segments it serves, Infineon reported the following rsults during the 2014 period:

  • Infineon's MOSFET market share grew from 26.4 to 27.8%, while the second largest competitor reached 10.5%.
  • Infineon grew its stake in the discrete IGBT market from 34.7% to 38.5%, with its nearest competitor achieving 14.1%
  • As the second-ranked player in the IGBT module segment, Infineon raised its market share from 21.4% to 23.2%.

Infineon has also reported that it has once again been listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index in 2015. Infineon has been included in both the European and the worldwide index and is thus listed among the most sustainable companies in the world for the sixth consecutive year.
"We have been listed in the Dow Jones Sustainability Index every year without interruption since 2010. We are very pleased about this recognition and about the positive feedback from those investors, to whom sustainability is of special importance," says Dominik Asam, Chief Financial Officer of Infineon Technologies AG and responsible for the topic of sustainability.
