Global GaAs Wafer Market Drivers & Trends

The primary drivers of growth for global GaAs wafer market are recorded to be growing penetration of light emitting diode (LED) in general lighting as well. The emerging trends having a direct impact on the dynamics of the gallium arsenide wafer industry, hence include rising demand for larger size GaAs wafers and reusing gallium arsenide wafers for higher performance devices.

With that, the substantially increased demand for digital cameras, laptops are also contributing to a greater extent towards the growth of GaAs market globally as it is more efficient and economical than silicon when it comes to extending battery life significantly. Also, GaAs wafers can meet specific demands in cellular terminals such as multiple inputs, carrier aggregation, and MIMO antennas among others.

GaAs wafers have numerous advantages, some of which are listed as a better signal to noise ratio, high thermal stability, broader temperature operating range, and high electron mobility. On this contrary, mobile devices are expected to lead in the application segment during the forecast period. After the launch of 4G and 5G enabled smartphones, the market of 2G and 3G mobile devices dropped significantly, thus creating opportunities for GaAs market to shift towards 4G and 5G. However, swift change in new smartphone technologies is extensively encouraging smartphone manufacturers to replace existing semiconductor wafers. Hence, these factors are significantly boosting the global GaAs wafer market in recent time and will bolster in the forecast period.
