Pune, India, September 14, 2018/MRFR Press Release/— Market Research Future published a half-cooked research report on global GaAs wafer market research report — forecast till 2023.
Gallium is a obtained after smelting of aluminium and zinc. GaAs is a major component in diodes, Field Effect Transistors (FETs) and Integrarted Circuits (ICs). Globally, the GaAs wafer market is expected to grow from USD 625 million in 2017 to USD 1,224.3 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 12% during the forecast period. Opportunities that aid the growth of GaAs market include increasing demand from smartphone manufacturers. Increasing demand for digital cameras, laptops are also contributing towards the growth of GaAs market. GaAs is more efficient and economical than silicon and extends battery life significantly. GaAs wafers can meet specialized demands in cellular terminals such as multiple input, carrier aggregation, and MIMO antennas among others.
Prominent players in global GaAs wafer market are Advanced Wireless Semiconductor Company (Taiwan), Global Communication Semiconductors, LLC (US), Ommic S.A. (France), WIN Semiconductors Corporation (Taiwan), AXT Inc. (US), Century Epitech Co Ltd. (China), Powerway Advanced Material Co., Ltd. (China), Intelligent Epitaxy Technology, Inc. (US), Sumitomo Electric Semiconductor Materials Inc. (US), Freiberger Compound Materials GmbH (Germany), IQE plc (UK), Qorvo, Inc. (US), United Monolithic Semiconductors (France), and Visual Photonics Epitaxy Co, Ltd. (Taiwan) among others.
