GaN market in power electronics is not about the devices, it’s about applications: "What would you do with a GaN Transistor?"

The Power Semiconductor landscape is reshaping: we are experiencing more M&A in 2015 than ever, and that will soon include GaN market too. With International Rectifier acquired by Infineon, or the same Infineon signing a partnership with Panasonic, how will start-ups react. EPC Corp., Transphorm or the new French comer ExaGaN are shaking the business. GaN market’s future is unclear to everybody. Acquisitions, partnerships, licensing… everything can happen, and this markert report is your guide to these changes.

Why always speak about players and devices and performances, when the real question is “What would you do with a GaN transistor?".

This market report analyzes the market from potential user’s point of view and reveals interesting facts. Photovoltaic inverters, UPS, Hybrid and electric cars, light electric vehicles, lighting… all these applications are said to be among the early adopters of GaN devices. We went and fetched the proof before believing in that. This market report goes beyond the standard beliefs or GaN maker's fairy future. As facts are held by device users; we interviewed them.

For the first time, you will get a real answer about the segments GaN will penetrate first, and there may be a few surprises.

Consumer applications with laptop and smartphone chargers will be the first to use GaN. It will be an early adopter and help bring volume production in order to drive cost down. It will represent as much as 30% of GaN power devices market in 2022.

GaN versus Silicon or GaN with Silicon?

Most competing analysis we have seen talked about how, when and how fast will GaN replace Silicon. This analysis proves that it will not work this way. If you remember the IGBT times you know what we are talking about. IGBT did not replace Bipolar transistor, and similarly, GaN will not replace Silicon MOSFET. Because a new power semiconductor technology is not replacing the previous one, it’s creating new technical possibilities that allow systems to emerge, and creates new markets. Bipolar, Thyristors, GTO’s and MOSFET still have their place next to IGBT. It allowed new possibilities of conversion nobody could imagine without these new performances.

Gallium nitride is not a Silicon replacement, it’s a Silicon improvement. It will allow new possibilities we explored and will thoroughly present in this report.
Now be part of it and get a clear and insightful report. It’s about your business and your future.
