Research and Markets: Power GaN Market 2014 - 80% Annual Growth Expected from 2016-2020

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/xgplzf/power_gan_market) has announced the addition of the "Power GaN Market 2014" report to their offering.

80% ANNUAL GROWTH FROM 2016-2020!

Overall, 2020 could see an estimated device market size of almost $600M, leading to approximately 580,000 x 6 wafers to be processed. Ramp-up will be quite impressive starting in 2016, at an estimated 80% CAGR through 2020, based upon a scenario where EV/HEV begins adopting GaN in 2018-2019.

The power supply/PFC segment will dominate the business from 2015-2018, ultimately representing 50% of device sales. At that point, automotive will then catch-up.

In UPS applications, the medium-power segment is likely to be very much in line with the GaN value proposition, and savings at system level will be demonstrated. We think GaN technology could grab up to 15% of market share in this field by 2020.

Room for extra cost in motor drive applications is unlikely. Therefore, the incentives to implement new technologies such as GaN have to be serious and strong. Considering the possible improvement of conversion efficiency, and augmented by a predictable price parity with Si solutions by 2018, we expect GaN to start being implemented at a slow rate in motor control by 2015-2016, and reach around $45M in revenue by 2020.

The PV inverters segment has already adopted SiC technology, and products are now commercially available. It's possible that GaN could partially displace SiC thanks to better price positioning. However, now that SiC is in place, qualifying GaN may be more challenging.

This report illustrates the full coverage of GaN device market data, split by application and through 2020.
