Global GaN Semiconductor Devices Market 2015-2019

About GaN semiconductor devices

GaN is a wide band gap semiconductor material. Its properties such as saturation velocity and high breakdown voltage make it an apt choice for high power applications in high-voltage switching devices such as radio frequency (RF) power amplifiers. The usage of GaN in semiconductor devices is cost-effective compared to silicon and gallium arsenide. GaN semiconductor devices are smaller, lighter, tougher, and more efficient than silicon semiconductor devices and are hence used to replace silicon in semiconductor devices. These devices find applications across several sectors such as defense and aerospace, consumer electronics, ICT, and automotive.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global GaN semiconductor devices market to grow at a CAGR of 20.77% in terms of revenue over the period 2014-2019.
