July 2021 | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

Gallium Nitride Semiconductor Devices Market Growth & Trends

The global gallium nitride semiconductor devices market size is expected to reach USD 7.42 billion by 2028, registering a CAGR of 21.5% from 2021 to 2028, according to a new study conducted by Grand View Research, Inc. The growing applications of gallium nitride in a wide variety of semiconductor devices are expected to augment the market growth. Additionally, the rapid technological advancements in the performance of GaN-based semiconductors are anticipated to promote market growth further. The demand for wireless communication devices, primarily in defense communication, is expected to drive the demand for gallium nitride semiconductors. Gallium nitride technology is being increasingly implemented for the development of amplifiers widely used in wireless communication, including Class E, Class F, and Class C power amplifiers.

Various aerospace and defense technology companies such as L3Harris Technologies, Inc.; Northrop Grumman Corporation; and BAE Systems are collaborating with government agencies for incorporating gallium nitride semiconductors in the military and radar applications. For instance, in February 2012, Northrop Grumman Corporation opened its Advanced Technology Laboratory for developing gallium nitride semiconductors for critical military programs. The company, along with the U.S. government, has invested more than USD 300 million for developing and integrating GaN semiconductors in military systems for enhancing the capabilities of space, aircraft, and ground defense communication systems. These factors are expected to drive the demand for GaN semiconductors across wireless applications.

In recent years, there has been an increase in demand for gallium nitride semiconductor devices in electric vehicle supply equipment such as onboard charging stations and EV charging kiosks. The lower switching frequency range of GaN devices makes them suitable for use in GaN-based DC-to-DC converters that are used in onboard charging stations, which bodes well for the growth of the gallium nitride semiconductor devices market. Furthermore, the on-going research and development activities worldwide aimed at the increased adoption of GaN devices in electric vehicles are anticipated to impact market growth significantly. For instance, in October 2019, Nagoya University launched an electric car that entirely uses gallium nitride semiconductor devices and named it All GaN Vehicle. This vehicle is 20% more efficient than current electric vehicles developed using SiC-based devices. In contrary, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has laid huge impact on sales and deployment of gallium nitride semiconductor devices in 2020. The impact of COVID-19 on the market is anticipated to be witnessed in coming months/ years.
