The market research & strategy consulting company [forecasts] "1,8% CAGR between 2019 and 2025 and estimated

CAGRs over the 2019 - 2025 period: for example, 19.5% for SiC, with
revenues estimated at US$712 million in 2025. Only Si exhibits a
moderate negative CAGR, with -3.3% over the same period for sub-6'' Si
wafers, due mostly to power and RF applications increasingly
transitioning to 8'' and even 12'', comments Gael Giusti, PhD, Technology & Market Analyst at Yole.
