SIC AND GAN COMPOUND SEMICONDUCTORS HAVE BECOME KEY SEGMENTS IN THE POWER SEMICONDUCTOR INDUSTRY
The rapid evolution of the wide bandgap compound semiconductor (CS) market in 2018-2019 has positioned both SiC and GaN as key materials within the power device market. There has been a remarkable shift of interest in SiC for automotive applications and in GaN in mainstream consumer applications. Yole Développement (Yole) expects that these applications will respectively drive the SiC and GaN power device market in the coming years. It is noteworthy that the SiC market forecast for 2019 is approaching $600M, corresponding to a 40% percent increase year-over-year (YoY). Yole follows both the SiC and GaN power markets closely.
Facing a fast-evolving market, Yole has started to publish, in quarterly instalments, a monitor containing world-class research, data, and insights pertaining to the CS markets. This monitor analyses CS market evolution in terms of revenue, shipments, and price, as well as forecasts for each market segment, and device, wafer and epiwafer market dynamics.
DRIVEN BY THE AUTOMOTIVE MARKET, THE POWER SIC DEVICE MARKET IS PROSPERING
Ever since the first commercialization of SiC diodes, the power SiC device market has been driven by power supply applications. Nevertheless, automotive is becoming the killer application for the power SiC market. The 2018-2019 power SiC device market
is notable for Tesla’s adoption of SiC in its main inverter. Following that, different Tier 1 car part suppliers and carmakers, such as ZF, Bosch and Renault, have recently made announcements on their adoption of SiC technology in some of their products. Yole sees a prospering SiC power device market. In fact, we expect the players’ revenue in the SiC power semiconductor market to exceed $3B by 2025. The automotive market is undoubtedly the foremost driver, and as such will hold more than 50% of total device market share in 2025.
An evolving market means opportunities and challenges for the suppliers across the supply chain. Yole’s quarterly monitor will answer numerous pressing questions facing this industry, such as:
- How will the EV market evolve and are Tier 1 part suppliers and carmakers sticking to their adoption time line?
- What will be the supply situation and cost erosion for SiC wafers?
- Will current SiC power device market leader STMicroelectronics continue to manage supply and keep its position?
- Will the market leaders of silicon-based power devices, such as Infineon and OnSemi continue their success in the CS-based power device market?
- What is the status of Wolfspeed/Cree’s New York fab?
- Will China’s entrance into the CS market disrupt the current market balance?
With its CS quarterly market monitor, Yole provides opinions on and answers to all of these questions on a quarterly basis.
GaN POWER DEVICES CONTINUE ENTERING THE HIGH VOLUME CONSUMER MARKET
In the power GaN landscape, Yole analysts’ recently witnessed a remarkable entry of one player into high volume consumer market: Power Integrations. By Q3-2019, the company announced that it had shipped its new Innoswitch3 with a system-in-package GaN High Electron Mobility Transistor (HEMT) product to after-market fast charger manufacturers. It had also earned a design win with Oppo for its 65W GaN based in-box fast chargers. What’s more, Power Integrations also announced shipping to Samsung for GaN-based 45W accessory mobile fast chargers and having achieved a design win for in-box chargers at the
Korean giant in Q4-2019.
This is very exciting and encouraging news for GaN power devices. They have entered a high-volume smartphone market for the first time, and it is likely to be a real game-changer for GaN power market. Driven by such consumer fast-charger applications,
the outlook for the GaN power market is highly positive – in the range of 167% YoY in 2019 – and is expected to exceed $700M in 2025. Yole is providing detailed profiles and analyses of the main suppliers on a quarterly basis.
