According to a market research report published by Research and Markets, the global gallium nitride (GaN) substrates market size is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 11.75% from 2017 to 2022, and will reach the total market size of US$442.084 million by 2022, increasing from US$253.700 million in 2017. The ability to provide wider bandgap, high breakdown voltage, larger critical electric field, and high thermal conductivity is driving the growth of gallium nitride substrates market leading to a shift of industry manufacturers from silicon technology to gallium nitride substrates.
MSE Supplies is a leading supplier of gallium nitride (GaN) substrates to leading research labs and technology companies worldwide. Premium quality GaN crystal substrates with low dislocation density (on the order of 105 /cm2) and uniform surface with no periodic defects. These high quality GaN crystal substrates have a usable area of more than 90%. Options include: N-type, P-type, Semi-insulating, C-plane, M-plane, A-plane. Sizes up to 2 inch diameter.
There also lies the advantage of high electron mobility, low switching losses and relatively fewer lattice mismatches which are supplementing the growth of gallium nitride substrates market. However, the use of small gallium nitride substrates namely, 2 & 4 Inch GaN Substrates, results in wastage of space and edges leading to inefficiency and a high implementation cost are some of the challenges which are restraining the growth of gallium nitride substrates market.
Amongst end-users, the global gallium nitride substrates market is segmented as healthcare, automotive, military and communication, general lighting, and consumer electronics. The use of gallium nitride substrates in the automotive sector is projected to rise with the evolution of cars towards becoming semi and eventually fully autonomous. This new technology is used in several applications such as cockpit wireless charging, Lidar sensing and electric vehicle charging in the automotive industry.
