Market Synopsis


Global Compound Semiconductor Market is estimated to reach USD 4,465.2 Million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 6.53% during the forecast period of 2020–2026.


Semiconductors made of two or more elements are categorized as compound semiconductors. These semiconductors are most commonly made from combining elements from Group III and Group V of the Periodic Table. Although some are formed by combining the element of Groups II and Group VI or using elements of the same group. Earlier, owing to the high cost of manufacturing, compound semiconductors were not used in widespread commercial applications. However, over the past decade, rising investments in the development of electric vehicles, increasing government initiatives for adoption of 5G, and increasing demand for high-speed transceivers in the data center has propelled the demand for the compound semiconductor market.


Global Compound Semiconductor Market has been segmented based on by Type, By Product, By Application, and By Region.


By Type, the market has been segmented into Gallium Nitride (GaN), Gallium Arsenide (GaAs), Silicon Carbide (SiC), Indium Phosphide (InP), Silicon Germanium (SiGe), Gallium Phosphide (GaP), Indium Antimonide (InSb), and others. The others segment includes Cadmium Selenide (CdSe), Cadmium Telluride (CdTe), Zinc Selenide (ZnSe), Aluminum Indium Arsenide (AlInAs), Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CdZnTe), and Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT).   The Silicon Carbide (SiC) segment is expected to dominate the market during the forecast period. However, the Gallium Nitride (GaN) segment is expected to register the highest CAGR owing to the growing application of this material in general lighting, signage, and automotive sector.


By Product, the market has been segmented into Optoelectronics, RF devices, and power electronics. The optoelectronics segment is further sub-segmented into LED, image sensors, laser diode, optocouplers, and photovoltaic cells. The RF devices segment includes RF power and RF switching. The power electronics segment is further bifurcated into the diode, transistor, power modules, and power IC. The optoelectronics segment is expected to account for the largest market share. Furthermore, the LED sub-segment is expected to register the highest CAGR owing to the decrease in LED prices and the increase in the initiative by the government to promote the adoption of LED.


By Application, the market has been segmented into lighting, telecommunication, aerospace & defense, automotive, consumer display, and others. The lighting segment is projected to hold the largest market share. However, the telecommunication segment is expected to register a significant CAGR during the forecast period.
