GaN and SiC power semiconductor market to rise 18-fold from 2012 to 2022 - Semiconductor Today

GaN and SiC power semiconductor market to rise 18-fold from 2012 to 2022 Energized by demand from power supplies, photovoltaic (PV) inverters and industrial motor drives, the emerging market for silicon carbide (SiC) and gallium nitride (GaN) power semiconductors is forecast to grow a remarkable factor of 18 over 10 years, from just $143m in 2012 to $2.8bn in 2022, according to the report ‘The World Market for SiC & GaN Power Semiconductors - 2013 Edition’ from IMS Research (now part of HIS). Market revenue is expected to rise by double digits annually for the next decade. SiC Schottky diodes have been around for more than 10 years, with SiC metal-oxide semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFET), junction-gate field-effect transistors (JFET) and bipolar junction transistors (BJT) appearing in recent years. In contrast, GaN power semiconductors are only just appearing ...
