Gallium Nitride (GaN) is a technologically advanced and a wide bandgap semiconductor. The GaN power device is an essential technology as it provides an upgraded performance in various applications. The GaN technology has become essential due to its benefits such as high efficiency, switching speed, size, and high-temperature tolerance. The increasing energy demand across the globe has boosted the sales of GaN products which also reduces the carbon footprint.

GaN Power Device Market

For instance, it is estimated that a worldwide Si-to-GaN data center up-gradation would reduce energy loss by 30-40%, which will further save over 100 TWhr and 125 M-tons of CO2 emissions by 2030.

Moreover, in December 2016, Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) launched wireless charging systems based on WiTricity’s reference designs that feature gallium Nitride (GaN)-based solutions with ASD Technology Limited (ASD). The development is in response to the rising customer and end-user manufacturers who are showing interest in wireless charging products using gallium nitride technology. Moreover, the decline in the price of GaN power device is also one of the major factors to boost the growth of GaN market.

In addition to this, the rising adoption of GaN power devices in electric vehicles has uplifted the growth of the global GAN power device market. Electric vehicles are mainly equipped with power modules to drive motors at higher voltage, as these devices reduce the current leakage between the collector and emitter terminals and enhance the switching rate with high frequency. Moreover, high voltage battery system in both HEVs and EVs requires power management devices for power handling from the battery to motor drivers. Furthermore, the sales of electric vehicles have increased significantly and are expected to reach 41 million by 2040. These factors have provided lucrative growth opportunities for the growth of the GaN power device market.
