Free fuel-based energy sources (solar and wind) are pointing towards a future in which sustainable energy is affordable, abundant and deployed with high energy efficiency. Driven by advancements in the technology of lithium batteries and the availability of low-cost sustainable clean electric power, the electrification of transportation is going through fundamental disruptive transformation. Without any doubt, both power and transportation sectors will provide phenomenal growth of power electronics in the 21st century. Recently, both SiC and GaN are drawing the attention as potential replacement of Si-based power electronics. These may open some new markets where Si based power electronics cannot function either due to power or temperature limitations. In this paper we have identified the WBG based key power electronics products that should be focused to see their high growth.
