DUBLIN, September 5, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Gallium Arsenide Wafer Market 2016-2020" report to their offering.
The global gallium arsenide (GAAS) wafer market to grow at a CAGR of 12.69% during the period 2016-2020.
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global gallium arsenide (GAAS) wafer market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the shipment of 6-inch equivalent GaAs wafers to the customers.
GaAs, which is also known as a compound III-V semiconductor, is used in devices such as infrared LED, monolithic microwave ICs (MMICs), microwave frequency ICs, solar cells, optical windows, and laser diodes. It is increasingly used as a replacement for silicon wafers due to its electronic properties. GaAs has high saturated electron velocity and electron mobility, which allow GaAs devices to function efficiently at frequencies above 250 GHz. Due to the wider band gap, GaAs wafers are less sensitive to heat and emit less noise, especially at higher frequencies, compared to silicon wafers. Due to these properties, they are used in mobile devices, wireless communications, aerospace and defense, and automotive systems.
Shutdown of 2G network will be a key trend for market growth. High-speed 3G or 4G internet services are easily available worldwide. The data speed of a 4G connection is, on average, ten times more than the speed of a 3G connection. High-speed internet connectivity leads to faster streaming of videos, quicker web browsing, and better performance of GPS. Hence, many countries are opting for 3G and 4G connectivity, which will result in the shutdown of the 2G mobile network by the end of 2016, with its bandwidth being allocated to 3G and 4G mobile networks.
According to the report, one of the key drivers for market growth will be requirement for increased network bandwidth. The growth in internet bandwidth is fueled by two factors: the proliferation of mobile computing devices with advanced capabilities (such as smartphones, tablets, and wearables) and the emergence of disruptive technologies that shift the bandwidth usage by altering the way users access the network. With the emergence of new mobile telecommunication standards such as 4G and 5G, consumers are now opting for higher bandwidth applications and services.
