Breaking Down the Gallium Nitride Power Electronics Market

December 08, 2014 | State of the Market Report

As Si struggles to keep up with increasing demands on performance in several power electronics applications, emerging materials like GaN and SiC look to displace silicon (see the report “Sizing-up the $23 Billion Discrete Power Electronics Market in 2024”). GaN comes in many different flavors, including GaN-on-Si, GaN-on-SiC, and GaN-on-GaN. Each variety of GaN has advantages and disadvantages while also being better suited to different power electronics applications. This report will size the market for different GaN flavors, feeding off of the report “Sizing-up the $23 Billion Discrete Power Electronics Market in 2024.” This report will address the benefits and pitfalls of each variety of GaN technology and subsequently evaluate how these flavors stack up against each other as well as SiC and silicon.
