Table of Contents

Gallium Nitride (GaN) is a compound semiconductor material which possesses notable advantages over the conventional semiconductor materials such as Silicon, Silicon Carbide, Aluminum, and so on. This material is most commonly used in optoelectronic products such as Lasers, LEDs. The GaN material is also employed in Power Electronics, and Radio Frequency Amplifiers. The usage of the GaN material is not same in these products. The GaN material is as a thin film grown on other substrates such as Sapphire, Silicon, and Silicon Carbide. These thin films can also be called as templates. The GaN substrates market encompasses the core substrates, that is GaN on GaN or bulk GaN substrates as well as the GaN on Si, GaN on SiC, and GaN on Sapphire substrates.

GaN Substrates Market report is a thorough study of different types of substrates, devices, and end use industries which employ gallium nitride. There are four types of substrates, namely, GaN on Sapphire, GaN on Si, GaN on SiC and GaN on GaN. Here, the market is dominated by foreign substrates, where GaN is grown by epitaxial methods onto sapphire, silicon and silicon carbide. The bulk GaN substrates, that is, GaN grown on core GaN substrate, are very less in volume and are emerging. The market is also segmented by the product/device which is made on these substrates into LEDs, Lasers, Power Switching Devices and others. Finally, the market is studied across end use industries such as Healthcare, Automotive, Military and Communication, General Lighting, Consumer Electronics, Power, Telecom, and others. The overall market is also presented from the perspective of different geographic regions and the key countries for this industry. Competitive landscape for each of the product types is highlighted and market players are profiled.

The GaN substrates market is dominated by sapphire which is nearing maturity. This is followed by SiC substrates which are used by Cree Inc. predominantly. Silicon and GaN are currently smaller in volume, but are estimated to grow hugely in the coming years. The demand for less defects and efficient devices is estimated to drive demand for larger substrates. LED and Power Electronic products are projected to be the key growth areas for the market.

Major Players in GaN Substrates and Devices Market:
Rubicon Technology, Inc.
Sumitomo Electric Industries, Inc.
Mitshibishi Chemical Corporation
Cree Inc.
Osram Licht AG
Nichia Corporation
Avogy, Inc.
