SIC AND GAN HAVE BECOME KEY SEGMENTS IN THE POWER SEMICONDUCTOR INDUSTRY
In competition with silicon, SiC and GaN have made remarkable progress in the power electronics business over the last decade. Following Tesla’s adoption of SiC in its main inverter, automotive has become the killer application for SiC. Since then, SiC has entered the priority list of almost all carmakers. For example, BYD and Lucid Air have also chosen SiC-based main inverter technology in their premium models in 2020. Despite the global slowdown in H1-2020 due to the Covid-19 outbreak, design wins for SiC solutions have recently multiplied, with a bright market outlook for 2019-2025 period.
For the GaN power market, the adoption of GaN HEMTs for Oppo’s in-box fast charger at the end of 2019 boosted the penetration of this wide bandgap material. Indeed, several phone makers such as Vivo, Realme and Meizu rushed to adopt GaN-based in-box fast chargers for their flagships released in early 2020. Also other players, such as Samsung and Xiaomi, have opted for GaN accessory chargers. The GaN journey has just started with the end-consumer mass market where it will gain volume production. In a few years, it will also expand in the automotive and industrial market.
Facing a fast-evolving market and the pandemic crisis in 2020, Yole Développement (Yole) is publishing a monitor containing world-class research, data, and insights pertaining to compound semiconductor (CS) markets in quarterly instalments. This monitor analyses the CS markets’ evolution in terms of revenue, shipments, and price, as well as market forecast per market segment, CS device, wafer and epiwafer market dynamics.
5G SMARTPHONE AND TELECOM INFRASTRUCTURE DRIVE THE RF GAN AND GAAS MARKETS
In the dynamic 5G infrastructure market, deployment of higher frequencies in the sub-6GHz as well as in the mm-wave regimes has pushed manufacturers to look for more efficient antenna technology platforms. In the Remote Radio Head (RRH) and active antenna systems, GaN has become a serious competitor to silicon LDMOS and GaAs. Driven by GaN-on-SiC devices’ implementation in the 5G sub-6Hz RRH, RF GaN device market revenue is expected to reach $2.5B by 2025. Even though, as of Q4-2020, GaN-on-Si remains in small volume manufacturing, it brings benefits such as cost-efficiency, large wafer size and a scalable substrate supply chain. This makes it interesting for 5G telecom and radio frequency front end (RFFE) applications.
On the other hand, GaAs is the main building block for 3G and 4G handset power amplifiers (PAs). With the transition to 5G, it will continue its significant deployment in sub-6GHz phones, as the GaAs PA meets the stringent requirements for power and linearity in the RFFE handset module. Also, the newly released WiFi6E standard will go to frequencies higher than 6GHz, where SiGe performance is limited and GaAs
adoption is favourable. In the automotive market, connected vehicles and V2X will become standard features by 2022, increasing the RF GaAs market in the mid-long term. The expected increase of GaAs PA count per phone in the RFFE and connectivity and the demand for 5G phones and connected vehicles will drive the RF GaAs die market beyond $3.6B by 2025.
When can GaN PAs enter handsets? What impact has the US-China trade tensions had on the RF GaN and RF GaAs market? What are the device players’ strategies in the emerging RF GaN and RF GaAs businesses? What is the impact of the Covid-19 outbreak on the RF business? Yole will provide answers to these questions and detailed profiles and analyses of main suppliers on a quarterly basis.
