Growth Factors

The growing applications of gallium nitride in a wide variety of semiconductor devices are expected to augment the market growth. Additionally, the rapid technological advancements in the performance of GaN-based semiconductors are anticipated to promote market growth further. The demand for wireless communication devices, primarily in defense communication, is expected to drive the demand for gallium nitride semiconductors. Gallium nitride technology is being increasingly implemented for the development of amplifiers widely used in wireless communication, including Class E, Class F, and Class C power amplifiers.

Various aerospace and defense technology companies such as L3Harris Technologies, Inc.; Northrop Grumman Corporation; and BAE Systems are collaborating with government agencies for incorporating gallium nitride semiconductors in the military and radar applications. For instance, in February 2012, Northrop Grumman Corporation opened its Advanced Technology Laboratory for developing gallium nitride semiconductors for critical military programs. The company, along with the U.S. government, has invested more than USD 300 million for developing and integrating GaN semiconductors in military systems for enhancing the capabilities of space, aircraft, and ground defense communication systems. These factors are expected to drive the demand for GaN semiconductors across wireless applications. 

Report Highlights

The opto-semiconductors product segment dominated the market in 2020 with a revenue share of over 37% and is expected to witness considerable growth over the next eight years. This can be largely attributed to the application of opto-semiconductors in devices such as LEDs, photodiodes, lasers, and optoelectronics, among others. The automotive sector is increasingly utilizing opto-semiconductors in automotive lights, indoor and outdoor lighting, and pulse-powered laser. This is subsequently propelling the adoption of opto-semiconductors in the automotive and consumer electronics industries. Furthermore, opto-semiconductors are also being widely used in applications such as (LiDAR) and pulsed laser, which bodes well for the growth of the segment.

The transistor segment dominated the market in 2020 with a revenue share of over 46%. In recent years, there has been an increasing adoption of GaN-based power transistors adoption of 4G technology-enabled devices has resulted in elevated demand for high power transistors for base stations used in the telecommunication sector. As compared to silicon-based transistors, GaN-based transistors are efficient and functional at high power density and high switch frequency, which has resulted in a higher share of the transistor segment in 2020.

The 4-inch segment dominated the market in 2020 with a revenue share of over 49%, attributable to the fact that 4-inch wafers are and facilitate large scale production of semiconductor devices. The implementations of 4-inch wafers are rapidly increasing as these wafers overcome the limitations of 2-inch wafers and are widely used in semiconductor product-based industries. Furthermore, the increasing demand for gallium nitride devices with 4-inch wafers in high-power amplifiers, optoelectronics devices, telecom frontends, and high-temperature devices is driving the segment growth. Moreover, the suitability of 4-inch substrate for space communication applications owing to its radiation-hardened properties is anticipated to be a key factor influencing the market growth.
