GaAs epitaxial substrate revenue to reach $543m in 2015: Strategy Analytics

To account for slightly more than 80% of total device demand

By CBR Staff Writer

Growth of gallium arsenide (GaAs) devices will increase GaAs epitaxial substrate demand to more than 40200 ksi and revenues of $543m in 2015, according to the Strategy Analytics GaAs and Compound Semiconductor Technologies Service Forecast and Outlook.

The report, "Markets for SI GaAs Epitaxial Substrates: 2010-2015," said that 6-inch GaAs epitaxial substrates will account for slightly more than 80% of total device demand over the forecast period.

The report forecasts that 6-inch GaAs epitaxial substrate demand will see a compounded average annual growth rate (CAAGR) of 9%, as the demand will be dominated by cost sensitive, high volume markets.

Strategy Analytics GaAs and Compound Semiconductor Technologies Service director Eric Higham said strong growth in the overall GaAs device market in 2010 propelled the GaAs epitaxial substrate market to solid gains in 2010.

"The GaAs substrate market is tied closely to wireless communications and Strategy Analytics anticipates continued growth in these areas," Higham said.
