GaAs Wafer Market Overview


Globally, the GaAs Wafer Market is expected to grow from USD 625 million in 2017 to USD 1224.3 million by 2023, at a CAGR of 12% during the forecast period. Increasing adoption of 4G and 5G networks drives the GaAs wafer market. However, the high production cost is restraining the market growth.


According to the latest research report, the global GaAs wafer market size is expected to witness significant growth during the forecast period. A combination of gallium and arsenic, gallium arsenide (GaAs) is a compound semiconductor of gallium that is produced by melting metals such as aluminum and zinc, as well as Arsenic. While gallium is believed to be more rare than gold, arsenic is reported to be harmful, despite the fact that it is both rare and valuable.


For a long time, GaAs were only employed in high-frequency applications requiring great efficiency and minimal noise, such as military and mobile phones. Mobile internet sales, along with the creation of new communication technologies like 4G and 5G, are anticipated to continue to fuel the growth of the GaAs wafer market in the near future. A growing number of mobile devices and storage is a factor that will have a significant effect on the GaAs wafer market in the future, even after the projection period covered in this research is completed. When compared to other semiconductor components, GaAs has the benefit of producing less noise, making them particularly suitable for signal amplification applications. Gallium arsenide is now being utilized in diodes, light-emitting diodes, field-effect transistors, and integrated circuits, among other applications. High-frequency radio frequency applications, as well as applications needing fast electronic switching, benefit from GaAs's performance. GaAs cells are also more insensitive to heat, compared to other types of cells. Another factor contributing to the expansion of this industry is the rise in the size of the GaAs wafer, which, in turn, helps to lower the production costs of the wafers themselves. Research and development are being carried out in large quantities in universities, research institutes, and corporate laboratories all around the globe, and the results are being published. This is also anticipated to have a beneficial effect on the market.
