Cellular Market Pushes RF GaAs Revenue Past $9B

News
Future growth is going to depend heavily on LTE and emerging 5G networks, says Strategy Analytics

After a relatively flat year in 2016, revenue in the RF GaAs device market grew by more than 7 percent in 2017. While a wide variety of commercial and defence applications use GaAs devices, the wireless market continues to be the dominant user of this technology.

Mobile handsets will continue to define the revenue trajectory, but emerging 5G network deployments will contribute to future growth. The Strategy Analytics Advanced Semiconductor Applications (ASA) service report, 'RF GaAs Device Industry Forecast: 2017 - 2022' forecasts that RF GaAs revenues will push past the $9 billion milestone by the end of the forecast timeframe.

The Strategy Analytics Advanced Semiconductor Applications (ASA) service report, "RF GaAs Device Industry Forecast: 2017 - 2022," forecasts that RF GaAs revenues will push past the $9 billion milestone by the end of the forecast timeframe.

"Despite the dominance of the wireless segment, the RF GaAs market has been notable for the breadth of applications using the technology," noted Eric Higham, service director, Advanced Semiconductor Applications (ASA) service. "However, GaAs devices are facing challenges from other technologies and they are being commoditised in many of these applications. Future growth is going to depend heavily on LTE and emerging 5G networks."

"The situation for RF GaAs growth in the defense market is different," observed Asif Anwar, director of the Advanced Defence Systems (ADS) service. "New defence platforms and major upgrades are reaching the production phase and while the radar segment will remain the dominant application, all the defence segments will experience growth."



CS International 26-27 March 2019, Sheraton Airport Hotel, Brussels

In its ninth year, CS International will continue to provide timely, comprehensive coverage of every important sector within the compound semiconductor industry. Presentations are split into 5 key themes and each industry key theme will be delivered by a keynote presentation from a leading industry figure as well as a market analyst presentation tailored to the theme. Together, the talks will detail breakthroughs in device technology; offer insights into the current status and the evolution of compound semiconductor devices; and provide details of advances in tools and processes that will help to drive up fab yields and throughputs. Attendees at the two-day conference will gain an up-to-date overview of the status of the CS industry, and have opportunities to meet many other key players within this community.
