RF GaN Market Overview:


The global RF GaN market is estimated to register a CAGR of over 20.7% to reach USD 4,659.0  Million by the end of 2030.


GaN transistors are increasingly finding application in radio frequency applications as they offer optimum solutions for simultaneous high power, high frequency, and high-temperature operation. GaN RF devices are primarily used for enabling wireless infrastructure for cell phones, radio and television broadcasting, MRI machines, radar, space and satellite communications, as well as military communications. RF GaN technology is also suitable for 5G or advanced 4G systems, as it works at higher frequency ranges.


The past decade has witnessed significant growth in the RF GaN market which has reshaped the RF power devices landscape. Demand for RF amplifiers with high rate of data transmission, higher frequency and power has led to the development in GaN RF device technology. The various factors attributing to the growth of the global RF GaN market are increasing adoption of RF GaN power devices for energy & power applications and rise in demand for IT & telecommunication equipment that use RF GaN power devices. Furthermore, innovation in linearization and power efficiency of RF power amplifiers will create opportunities for market players during the forecast period


Opportunities for Global RF GaN Market:


Despite 4G technology wireless systems' existing great performance and dependability, the telecoms industry and academics are exploring new methods to increase data rates, connection density, and latencies by creating next-generation 5G wireless standards and future network topologies. 5G wireless communication technologies are expected to achieve user-experienced data rates ranging from 100 Mbps to 1 Gbps, reliable connection densities of up to 1 million per square kilometer, end-to-end latency in the millisecond range, frequency bandwidths of up to 150 MHz, and mobility of up to 500 km/h. The goal characteristics are expected to be reached utilizing sub-6 GHz/cm-Wave/mm-Wave spectrum frequency carriers, spectrally efficient modulation waveforms, and a high number of beamforming antennas for massive MIMO, as well as fast advancing GaN, GaAs, SiGe, and Si-LDMOS technologies.


Market Dynamics:


Drivers:


Currently, gallium nitride (GaN) has been extensively used in radio frequency (RF) and microwave applications to enhance the performance of various devices. GaN is nearly 10% more efficient than laterally diffused MOSFET (LDMOS) which helps in significant energy savings at power levels of 600W or more. Furthermore, GaN materials are highly efficient, which allows them to offer superior system reliability. GaN-on-Si devices are used in solid-state RF energy systems as they offer an ideal balance of performance, reliability, and power efficiency with an affordable cost structure at production levels. MACOM, one of the leading companies operating in the RF GaN market, provides an RF energy toolkit with a software package that offers designers, complete control over the network and the high-performing amplifiers. This toolkit allows designers to determine the path of RF energy delivered to different applications. This toolkit is used to create reliable products; it also helps to debug and analyze the advantages of different electrical frequencies and parameters in various applications without the need for a big design team.

Restraint:


Both SiC and gallium nitride (GaN) exhibit properties that are significantly superior to Si for RF and switching power devices. The high critical field of both SiC and GaN allows electronic devices to operate at lower leakage currents and higher voltages. SiC has higher electron mobility than Si, whereas GaN operates on even higher mobility than SiC; hence, GaN is preferred for devices operating on very high frequencies. SiC has the highest thermal conductivity which can be combined with a high critical field and wide bandgap of GaN to provide high power to electronic devices.
