Water Tower Research Publishes Initiation of Coverage Report on Ideal Power Inc. (IPWR): “A Game Changer in IGBT Power Switch Market”

14 April 2021

CHICAGO, IL., April 14, 2021 – Water Tower Research has published an Initiation of Coverage on Ideal Power Inc. (NASDAQ: IPWR). The report focuses on the company’s key drivers, milestones, obstacles, and opportunities.

“With development and commercialization progressing, Ideal Power is well-placed to capture a slice of the large and growing $6.0 billion IGBT power switches market. Owing to their superior performance and efficiency, bi-directionality, and fewer thermal management requirements, B-TRAN™ power switches may be able to replace IGBTs in many applications,” said Shawn Severson, Co-Founder of Water Tower Research and Head of ClimateTech & Sustainable Investing Research. “As the primary end markets such as EVs, renewables, and data center UPS grow, B-TRAN™ could be looking at expanded market opportunities. Currently there is no high-efficiency bi-directional design available in the market, which makes potential competitors also potential licensees for B-TRAN™ technology, according to the company.”

Mr. Severson continued, “Some of the key milestones looking ahead include the successful validation of B-TRAN™ in partnership and collaboration with DTI, Teledyne, and the University of Texas, which could potentially trigger the necessary exposure and reputation with other possible partners and applications. The sampling program is expected to begin this year with initial commercial sales expected in 2022.”
