NEW YORK, Oct. 17, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The global gallium nitride (GaN) semiconductor devices market is expected to reach 2,967.1 million in 2024, at a CAGR of 14.2%. Factors driving the growth of the market are; increasing demand for power efficient electronic devices, rapid advancements in technology, growing application of semiconductor devices in various end-use industries, and rising investments in R&D by major semiconductor manufacturing companies. Moreover, rapid adoption of automated devices and increasing usage of the wireless charging are further propelling the market growth. Robots in healthcare sector with Gallium Nitride components have the ability to conduct delicate surgeries, which is expected to fuel the demand over the forecast period. Moreover, the potential usage of GaN in 5G infrastructure is also expected to propel the market growth over the forecast period.  However, high production cost of GaN devices may restrain the market growth to some extent.

Gallium Nitride is a semiconductor compound, and is commonly used for improving the performance of electronics in various applications, including military radar, RF cell phone base stations among others. GaN based semiconductor materials are chemically stable and thermally robust. It offers high thermal conductivity and is more reliable as compared to silicon based semiconductor device. Further, GaN has the ability to conduct electrons at much faster rate than silicon, i.e. high carrier (electron) mobility. With light weight and compact size, it has resulted in the development of efficient electronic systems. Owing to these features, GaN semiconductors are becoming more suitable for space applications. Furthermore, GaN-based devices enable magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) systems to operate at higher frequencies. It also holds the potential in healthcare industry as it can be used in electrosurgical process, for cutting and coagulation of tissues.

Key findings from the report:

  • On the basis of product, the global gallium nitride semiconductor devices market was dominated by radio frequency semiconductor devices in 2017. The power semiconductors segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR over the forest period
