Gallium Nitride (GaN) refers to chemical compound made of gallium and nitrogen which is considered as a wonder material owing to its high band gap energy of 3.4 electron volt. Compared to other semiconductor materials such as silicon, germanium that have band gap energy of 1.14ev and 0.67ev gallium nitride has an edge over these semiconductors in power semiconductors, electronics applications and in power electronics. The global GaN power device market is expected to grow with a CAGR of over 24% during the forecast period of 2016-2023. The high band gap energy of the gallium nitride leverages its wide adoption in power electronics industry. Bigger band gap energy enables gallium nitride to withstand strong electric field enabling production of thinner, more efficient and low resistance power devices. Gallium nitride power devices have a high adoption in medium voltage power application owing to its small size and high efficiency.
The growth in gallium nitride power device market is primarily driven owing to the growing demand of gallium power devices in the radio frequency application. Gallium power devices offers high frequency data bandwidth connections, high power efficiency that according to IEEE spectrum have an efficiency of over 98% in terms of power loss. The deployment of GaN RF power devices by the network providers will ensure that the LTE devices will offer high speeds to the user by utilizing the allotted bandwidth efficiently. High investment in development of 4G and 5G infrastructure are expected to positively influence the gallium nitride power devices market. High adoption of gallium based High-electron-mobility transistor (HEMT) for efficient bandwidth utilization and maximize efficiency, gain and linearity by mobile network operators may reduce operating cost, which will inject growth in gallium nitride power device market. For instance, in 2016 UK government invested a sum of $1.5 billion to boost 5G and fibre connection infrastructure in UK similarly in 2016 US government pledged to spend approximately $400 million for 5G wireless services research. The other factors that drive the gallium nitride power device include growing adoption of GaN power devices in electric vehicle owing to its high-power conversion efficiency, reduction in prices of GaN devices and escalating demand of GaN power devices for wireless charging owing to its fast switching time typically less than 10ms. However, stiff completion from silicon carbide power devices that have a comparable band gap energy and are cost effective compared to gallium nitride power devices and low availability of gallium nitride impedes the growth of gallium nitride power device market.
