Global GaN Semiconductor Devices Market 2015-2019Market segmentation and forecast for gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductor devices by consumer electronics, ICT, automotive, military aerospace, industry, computers, and others. Market shares for North America, Europe, APAC, and ROW are also included in this report. Leading vendors analyzed by this report include Avago, Cree, GaN Systems, Infineon, OSRAM, and Qorvo.

Market outlook of GaN semiconductor devices

Technavio’s market research analysts estimate the global GaN semiconductor devices market to grow at a CAGR of more than 20% over the next four years. GaN is a wide bandgap semiconductor material that is fast emerging as a popular choice for replacing silicon, especially in power electronics.

Adoption of GaN substrates in radio-frequency (RF) semiconductor devices fuels its demand. GaN devices can operate in higher voltages and temperatures. High-powered RF semiconductor devices require substrates that can endure high temperatures. Silicon substrates that are conventionally used in the semiconductor industry do not possess such high thermal conductivity.

For high-power RF semiconductor devices, high-density substrates that can withstand high temperatures during high-frequency oscillations are needed. To cater to these requirements, high-power RF semiconductor companies are adopting non-silicon substrates such as GaN.

Global GaN semiconductor devices market by geography

  • North America
  • Europe
  • APAC
  • ROW

In 2014, North America accounted for a sizeable market share in the global GaN semiconductor devices market. However, its market share is expected to decline during the forecast period. North America’s contribution to the market is primarily dependent on the application of GaN semiconductor devices in its defense sector.

Market segmentation of GAN powered semiconductors by products

  • Opto semiconductors
