Global Compound Semiconductor Market

Dublin, Nov. 22, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The “Global Compound Semiconductor Market by Type (GaN, GaAs, SiC, InP), Product (LED, Optoelectronics, RF Devices, Power Electronics), Application (Telecommunication, General Lighting, Automotive, Consumer Devices, Power Supply) & Region – Forecast to 2027” report has been added to’s offer.

The global compound semiconductor market size is estimated to be USD 40.5 billion in 2022 and is projected to reach USD 55.8 billion by 2027, at a CAGR of 6.6% during the forecast period. The market has promising growth potential due to several factors, such as the rise in demand and implementation of GaN and SiC in the semiconductor industry.

A compound semiconductor is a semiconductor made from two or more elements from two or more different periodic table groups. For example, one element from column III and one from column V of the periodic table are called compound III-V semiconductors, such as Gallium Arsenide (GaAs), Indium Phosphide (InP), and Gallium Nitride (GaN). Electrons in compound semiconductors move faster than electrons in silicon, which enables high-speed processing and operations at lower voltages.

SiC: The fastest-growing segment of the compound semiconductor market, by type

SiC has been experiencing significant growth owing to its wide use in discrete power components and devices, such as MOSFETs, junction field effect transistors (JFETs), and Schottky barrier diode (SBDs). Compared with other compound semiconductors, SiC has a wider bandgap and can operate at higher temperatures and voltages (up to 1,200 V). Therefore, SiC is expected to be used in high-power applications. SiC is used in electric vehicles, wireless charging, and power supplies.

Telecommunications: The largest segment of the compound semiconductor market, by application

Telecommunication is a leading application segment of the compound semiconductor market moving to the increased use of compound semiconductors such as GaAs, GaN, InP, and SiGe. The market for telecommunication applications is expected to cater to the largest share during the forecast period. 5G is providing a huge opportunity for compound semiconductors for telecom applications. The growth of telecommunication applications is driven by increasing demand for RF devices.

The study includes an in-depth competitive analysis of these key players in the compound semiconductor market, with their company profiles, recent developments, and key market strategies.
