Global GaN Devices Market 2016-2020

Global GaN Devices Market 2016-2020

About GaN

Silicon has been the preferred choice for computing and electronic devices since its invention almost 50 years ago. However, the constant evolution of technology demands high power and ever greater enhancements in the core semiconductor materials to ensure high performance. GaN has superior properties than silicon such as high breakdown voltage and saturation velocity. The bandgap in GaN is almost thrice the bandgap of silicon. Thus, GaN has the ability to improve power conversion efficiencies, raise power density levels, extend battery lives, and accelerate switching speeds in different end-user segments such as consumer electronics products, telecommunications hardware, electric vehicles, or domestic appliances.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global GaN radio frequency (RF) devices market to grow at a CAGR of 18.94% during the period 2016-2020.
