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 application in solar cell arrays for satellites. The power devices based on Gallium Nitride offer improved performance attributes such as enhanced efficiency, power handling and low manufacturing cost as compared to the power devices based on silicon such as MOSFET devices. Moreover, the GaN power devices have superior reverse-recovery performance, fast switching speed, and have low conductance losses. They need less power to drive the circuits and yield less switching losses. Such advantages of gallium nitride power devices over their silicon counterparts have driven consumers to switch to gallium nitride power devices which drive the market of GaN power devices globally. Moreover, expansion of various end user industries such as consumer electronics, automotive and aerospace which utilises power devices based on gallium nitride or GaN on account of their better performance also drive the market of GaN Power Device across the globe. Furthermore, the demand of GaN power devices has increased for wireless charging and for commercial RF applications which has also significantly impacted the global growth. However, the emerging use of other alternative technology such as power devices based on silicon carbide (SiC) can inhibit the market growth across the globe. Geographically, North America is expected to contribute widely towards the global growth of this market on account of sophistication of battery technology followed by Asia Pacific region. Factors such as rising demand for power devices in many end industries such as computing, telecommunications, industrial and automotive will fuel the growth in APAC.
