Substantial growth of end-use verticals is expected to boost market growth
Advancements in technology related to GaN power devices are enhancing the computational power of all systems, in turn boosting market growth. For instance, in December 2017, Yuji Zhao, an electrical and computer expert from Arizona State University received a three year grant of US$ 750,000 from National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s (NASA) Hot Operating Temperature Technology (HOTTech) program for the gallium nitride processor for applications in space.
The recent past has witness high proliferation of electric vehicles and increasing adoption of electrical and electronic components in internal combustion engines for enhanced and convenient control among users. According to Coherent Market Insights, vehicle electrification technologies are expected to witness a CAGR of over 8.8% over the forecast period and be valued at over US$ 120 billion by 2025.
According to Coherent Market Insights’ analysis, China and India contribute to around 35% of the global population base. Moreover, largest consumer base for automotive, consumer electronics, communication, and industrial manufacturing will provide the strongest growth prospects over the forecast period.
Our study on the global GaN power devices market includes the gallium nitride power and RF power devices that find predominant applications in power drives (electric vehicle drives, industrial drives, light detection), inverters, supplies, wireless charging, RF front end module, radars and space satellites. Extensive range of applications and the potential to cannibalize the existing silicon semiconductor market are expected to create immense opportunity for growth of the global GaN power devices market over the forecast period.
GaN materials include a wide range of features such as wide energy band gap (3.4eV), high heat capacity, thermal conductivity, low device resistance, and ability to operate at transition speeds from on to off and vice versa, are among the prominent benefits, inadvertently driving growth of the GaN power devices market. High conductivity in On state in comparison to alternatives such as silicon substitutes present high opportunity to improve the energy efficiency in power distribution and control systems. However, limited availability and relatively high cost of the material is expected to hinder the overall growth of the market in the near future.
