One of the most important factor restraining the market growth of Silicon-Controlled Rectifier Market across various end-use industries is the increasing adoption of the substitutes of silicon-controlled rectifiers such as transistor circuits. A silicon-controlled rectifier once triggered, it will conduct current in only one direction. However, the transistor circuit is equivalent to a silicon-controlled rectifier which employs a PNP and an NPN bipolar transistor to mimic the p-n-p-n structure of an SCR. In this circuit, the conduction of AC current is indefinite, as long as there is available current flowing between the anode and the cathode. This tend to limit its adoption in applications where there is continuous demand of electric supply, further restraining its market growth. Moreover, silicon-controlled rectifier offers low switching speed in power control applications, which may decrease the power output which tend to bring major challenges in its adoption in Power Transmission industry, further some of the highest current SCR's used in industries may cost several hundred dollars each.
