GaAs Wafer Market

The report on the Global GaAs Wafer Market covers historical market trends, current market dynamics, market valuation by segmentation as well as region, country-level analysis for every segment, key player’s market share analysis, competitive landscape and supply chain analysis.

Market Synopsis

Globally, the GaAs wafer market is expected to grow from USD 625 million in 2017 to USD 1224.3 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 12% during the forecast period. Increasing adoption of 4G and 5G networks drives the GaAs wafer market. However, the high production cost is restraining the market growth.

Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) is a semiconductor compound of two elements gallium (Ga) and arsenic (As). Gallium is a product produced after smelting of aluminum and zinc. GaAs is used in various end-use applications such as solar cells, manufacturing of LEDs, laser diodes, and wireless communication. The GaAs is also used in Field Effect Transistors (FET) and integrated circuits (ICs). In this compound, the velocity of electrons is faster than silicon, which makes it ideal for high velocity and high electric field applications. GaAs is more heat-resistant as compared to silicon which makes it suitable for use in power amplifiers for transmitting high-speed signals.

GaAs wafers are suitable for ultra-high radio frequency and fast electronic switching applications. GaAs wafers have many advantages such as better signal to noise ratio, high thermal stability, wider temperature operating range, and high electron mobility. Mobile devices are expected to dominate the application segment during the forecast period. After the launch of 4G and 5G enabled smartphones, the market of 2G and 3G mobile devices dropped significantly, creating opportunities for GaAs market to shift towards 4G and 5G. However, rapid change in new smartphone technologies encourages smartphone manufacturers to replace existing semiconductor wafers.
