Industry and Markets for Compound Semiconductor MMICs

  • Published: June 2013
  • Region: Global
  • Engalco

Although silicon technology (notably CMOS) is steadily advancing into some of the territory previously occupied by compound semiconductors there are many microwave and millimeter-wave systems for which the required performance levels can only be met by CS MMICs. This report provides market data on MMICs fabricated using GaAs, GaN, InP, SiC and SiGe into the following systems applications: adaptive cruise control (ACC); defense (AESAs, EW); industrial, scientific and medical (ISM); Ka-band VSATs, Ku-band VSATs, microwave radio, millimeter-wave radio (E-band, etc.). Power amplifier MMICs and 'non-power' MMICs are considered separately for all segmentations.

This report provides total annual market data for the years 2011, 2012 and each forecast year to 2017. Regions covered are Europe, North America and 'rest of the world'. Total global markets were about $1.27B in 2011 increasing to $1.65B in 2017 but with fluctuations in intermediate years. Markets for GaAs-based MMICs remain strong, albeit increasingly suffering from the GaN competition. Markets for most types of CS MMICs are well entrenched in AESAs, SATCOM (VSATs) and microwave radios.
