Career Considerations for Power Management IC Professionals

A Power-Efficient Future

Picture a modern city. Electric vehicles glide silently along the streets, whisking people to gleaming high-rise offices. Those buildings are powered by renewable energy. IoT sensors monitor building and occupant health without batteries and people are safer in their greener, cleaner work environments.

If that resonates with you, then you’re a power management semiconductor professional who shares our passion for a more efficient world!

Growth in the Power Management IC Sector

Analysts project the global power management IC (PMIC) market will grow from $36 billion worldwide in 2024 to around $62 billion by 2030 driven by advancements in technology, shifting consumer behaviors, and increasing demand for energy-efficient electronics.

Startups and big companies recognize the potential and are building teams to design circuits on new substrates, update processes, and improve packagins. This growth creates more opportunities for PMIC professionals to explore exciting, new challenges in architecture, engineering, validation, and marketing.

We’ve actively recruited engineers and leaders for startups building digitally controlled PMICs and developing chips with unprecedented power efficiency, giving us a front-row seat to this wave of change.

Career Considerations for PMIC Professionals

When planning your career future, understanding the major trends that affect your space is crucial, which is why we’ve listed the top considerations for PMIC professionals here:

  1. Energy Efficiency: With growing concerns about climate change and energy consumption, PMICs are being designed to optimize power consumption and increase overall system efficiency.
  2. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML): The rise of AI and ML in various industries creates a demand for PMICs that efficiently manage power consumption while processors handle complex algorithms.
  3. Advancements in Autos: The increased use of technology in vehicles drives demand for PMICs that efficiently manage power for systems like Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and fully autonomous driving.
  4. Power Density and Thermal Management: As devices become smaller and more powerful, PMICs must manage heat generation to prevent overheating and ensure reliable operation.
  5. Security and Trust: With the increasing threat of cyberattacks, PMICs have to be designed with security in mind, incorporating features like secure boot, firmware updates, and communication protocols.
  6. Software-Defined Power Management: The growing use of digital controls and software-defined power management necessitates PMICs that can be programmed and controlled through software, enabling efficient power management and optimization.
  7. Sustainability and Environmental Impact: The growing public awareness about environmental sustainability drives the demand for PMICs designed with sustainability in mind, minimizing waste and overall environmental impact.


PMIC professionals can use awareness of these trends to identify new opportunities and help advance their careers. If your background is power IC architecture, design, validation, applications engineering, or marketing, we encourage you to seize the moment and explore your potential opportunities!
