GaN or Gallium Nitride is a material which is used in the development of semiconductor power devices, LEDs or light emitting diodes and RF components. This material has a high sensitivity towards ionizing radiation which makes it suitable for solar cell arrays for satellites. The Gallium Nitride devices have dynamic electrical and chemical properties which make them appropriate to be used for various switching devices. The gallium nitride devices are also used as violet laser diodes to read blue-ray discs. Moreover, they are widely used in mobile display, television, projectors, laptop and notebook display as LEDs. They are also used in automobiles in lights, indoor & outdoor lighting, and pulse-powered lasers. Furthermore, they have proven to be effective power devices and are available as GaN HEMTs or High Electron Mobility Transistors, GaN MOSFET or Metal-Oxide-Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor and GaN MESFET or Metal–Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor. The GaN based power devices have high efficiency and high voltage operation. Furthermore, the GaN devices or Gallium Nitride devices have also been advocated to be used in nanoscale electrical applications, optoelectronics and biochemical-sensing applications. Apart from this, the gallium nitride devices find their extensive application in industrial, consumer and enterprise applications as well as defence, aerospace and information and communication technology sectors owing to their enhanced performance attributes. Hence expansion of end-use sectors such as automotive, consumer electronics, defence, and industrial among others will positively impact the market growth of gallium nitride devices across the globe. Regionally, the North American market is expected to drive the global growth on account of increasing expenditure on defense & aerospace industry in research & development. Moreover, the market of Asia Pacific is also estimated to drive the global growth on account of the enhanced need for efficient and high-performance RF components and growing demand for the efficient LEDs and electric vehicle production in the region.
