Power GaN market to reach $2 billion in 2027

EPC, GaN Systems, Infineon Technologies, Innoscience are all playing the power GaN game

The GaN power market is expected to reach $2 billion in 2027, according to Yole SystemPlus's new comparison report, 'GaN Power Transistor Comparison 2022'.

“With GaN being a relatively new technology compared to silicon, GaN device manufacturers offer different approaches to device design, integration, and packaging. Due to the technical difficulty in GaN epitaxy, most manufacturers outsource the various stages of device manufacturing, thereby changing their business models from pure device manufacturing business models. GaN business models are now very varied”.

Since their first commercialisation in 2010, the performance and added value of GaN devices have been gradually proven, and prices have become increasingly acceptable to end-users. New major players like STMicroelectronics are entering the market, and there is increased adoption of monolithic power GaN IC s in various mobile charges with a power rating up to 130 W at affordable prices.

However, GaN devices still have some technical and commercial challenges. Technically, improvements are required in manufacturing yield and electrical performance. Commercially, there is a need for large-volume market adoption driven by targeted applications (for instance, automotive) to reduce further the cost of GaN devices and favour GaN adoption on a large commercial scale.

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
