The specific sub sector of semiconductors & electronics where GaN-based
semiconductors & electronics have an edge over normal Si-based counterparts
is "Power Semiconductors & Electronics" and in terms of end-user application
sectors (verticals), the two major upcoming sectors facilitating demand for GaN
semiconductor devices are Industrial & Power sector and ICT sector. The ICT
sector has found use for GaN power discretes, particularly transistors in power
amplification, rectification, and high-frequency switching.
GaN has turned out to be the choice for most of the power semiconductor
applications and is quickly replacing the existing silicon technology. The various
properties of GaN such as wider band gap, high break-down voltage, larger
critical electric field, and higher thermal conductivity let the GaN devices
operate at higher voltages, high switching frequencies, handle higher power
density, and offer enhanced power efficiency than the pure Si devices. These
properties allow the GaN discretes like Schottky diodes, FETs, HEMTs and the
other advanced transistors to operate efficiently at much higher voltage levels,
exceeding the limits of counterpart Si devices. GaN power semiconductors also
help in reducing the conduction and switching losses, thereby offering higher
efficiency in electronic systems. The major application segments of GaN power
semiconductors currently are the inverters (& converters), RF devices, power
supply modules and motor drives being used across all the end user sectors.
For GaN power semiconductor devices, the current market growth is primarily
due to penetration in the medium-voltage power electronics market, mainly
among medium voltage range (300V to 1KV) applications across all the major
end-user verticals. So, it is obvious that most of the market revenue comes
from the rising number of advanced -power applications of industrial, power,
solar & wind sector and the sector's development globally. Currently, GaN
power devices draw most of their revenue from the ICT sector, as they have
been solely focusing on replacing their Si counterparts in various RF power
devices, particularly in RF communication applications over the past few years.
With respect to features, the GaN devices are much smaller, lighter but tougher
and efficient than silicon semiconductor devices and serve as perfect
replacements for their silicon counterpart devices which have hit maturity. With
additional features offered by GaN in these devices such as low sensitivity to
ionizing radiation, better stability in some radiation environments, GaN devices
also have a future in solar cell arrays, satellites and high-end power appliances
in the Military, Defense & Aerospace sector. Apart from this sector, these
devices also have huge revenue potential in the automotive and transportation
sector, mainly in the electric vehicles & hybrid electric vehicles segment of the
automotive sector.
The market's total competitive landscape currently has only a handful of
players, but the number of players is expected to increase quickly over the
coming years, with several power semiconductor industry giants and new start-
ups entering into the field of GaN power semiconductors. Currently, the overall
GaN power semiconductors market accounts for less than 1% of the total
power semiconductors market (currently at
$34 billion
including power
discretes and power ICs), but over the next ten years, the entire base for power
semiconductors & electronics players is expected to penetrate this new value
chain, thereby rapidly increasing the percentage share.
Today's world includes numerous suitable power applications for GaN in several
application segments, such as power distribution systems, industrial systems,
heavy electrical systems, turbines, heavy machinery, advanced industrial
control systems, electro-mechanical computing systems, and so on; also
inclusive of several new power applications (clean-tech) such as High-Voltage
Direct Current (HVDC), Smart Grid Power Systems, Wind Turbines, Wind Power
Systems, Solar Power Systems, Electric & Hybrid Electric Vehicles. Another
application sector is ICT, with several communication application segments
such as RF, RADAR, and Satellite communication offering huge revenue
potentials owing to the unbeatable ability of GaN to operate at high-frequency
ranges, including microwave frequencies. The potential market size of these
massive applications is currently in trillions, making the total addressable
market for the GaN power semiconductors worth billions.
Due to this vast addressable market, the GaN power semiconductors market is
quickly gaining pace, several transistors and diodes (& rectifiers) have been in
the market since 2008, with extraordinary growth in the volume of power
discretes (HEMTs, Diodes & Rectifiers and FETs) boosting the total revenue of
the GaN power semiconductors market. Another factor for revenue growth was
from GaN power ICs, where new power ICs such as MMICs and RFICs were
launched commercially every year by industry players after extensive R&D
efforts on developing new technologies to enable the same. The complete GaN
power semiconductors industry has shifted to a mass-production scenario in
2011 with the success and revenue potential drawing the focus of several
power semiconductor market giants.
The
Gallium Nitride Semiconductor Devices Market
is expected to reach
$12.60 million
by the end of 2012. The phenomenal growth rate of
approximately 60 to 80% year-on-year is expected to continue for the following
years. The forecasted revenue for GaN power semiconductors is
$1.75 billion
by end of 2022 (after 10 years) at an explosive CAGR of 63.78% from 2012 to
2022. Apart from power semiconductors, GaN is predominantly used in
optosemiconductors, for LEDs and laser diodes. The total GaN semiconductors
(including both, power and optosemiconductors) market revenue is expected to
reach
$2.6 billion
by 2022.
