SiC (Silicon Carbide) power devices can be applied in rapidly developing markets such as EV (Electric Vehicles), photovoltaics, wind power, and 5G RF (Radio Frequency), bringing enormous potential. China has also clearly identified the SiC industry as a key industry in its 14th Five Year Plan while several major players have invested heavily in SiC development. This report looks into the development and production capacity of major Chinese SiC substrate suppliers, epitaxial wafer manufacturers, and IDMs (Integrated Device Manufacturers) and examines their future development trends and strategies.

This product will be delivered within 3-5 business days.

Primary research with a holistic, cross-domain approach

The exhaustive primary research methods are central to the value that the analyst delivers. A combination of questionnaires and on-site visits to the major manufacturers provides a first view of the latest data and trends. Information is subsequently validated by interviews with the manufacturers' suppliers and customers, covering a holistic industry value chain. This process is backed up by a cross-domain team-based approach, creating an interlaced network across numerous interrelated components and system-level devices to ensure statistical integrity and provide in-depth insight.

Complementing primary research is a running database and secondary research of industry and market information. Dedicated research into the macro-environmental trends shaping the ICT industry also allows the analyst to forecast future development trends and generate foresight perspectives. With more than 20 years of experience and endeavors in research, the methods and methodologies include:


  • Component supplier interviews
  • System supplier interviews
  • User interviews
  • Channel interviews
  • IPO interviews
  • Focus groups
  • Consumer surveys
  • Production databases
  • Financial data
  • Custom databases


  • Technology forecasting and assessment
  • Product assessment and selection
  • Product life cycles
  • Added value analysis
  • Market trends
  • Scenario analysis
  • Competitor analysis
