DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Gallium Arsenide Components Market 2017-2021" report to their offering.
The global gallium arsenide (GaAs) components market to grow at a CAGR of 4.26% during the period 2017-2021.
Global Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) Components Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global gallium arsenide (GaAs) components market for 2017-2021. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the sales of GaAs components worldwide. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
GaAs is increasingly used as a replacement for silicon because of its enhanced electronic properties. GaAs has high saturated electron velocity and electron mobility, which allow GaAs components to function efficiently at frequencies above 250 gigahertz (GHz). Due to the wider band gap, GaAs components are less sensitive to heat compared with silicon-based devices. In addition, GaAs components emit less noise than silicon devices, especially at higher frequencies. GaAs components are used in mobile phones, satellite communication equipment, microwave point-to-point links, and high-frequency radar systems due to these properties.
Shipments of smartphones will reach more than 2 billion units by 2020 due to the availability of low-cost smartphones in emerging markets such as China and India and increasing internet penetration worldwide. This is a significant increase from around 1.4 billion units in 2016. The growth in the shipments of smartphones will drive the demand for GaAs components used in mobile handsets, particularly GaAs power amplifiers. Smartphones currently require more GaAs content, as they need many frequency bands to accommodate 3G and 4G networks.
The increasing demand for tablets is also contributing to the market growth. Tablet shipments are estimated to reach about 430 million units by 2020 from almost 290 million units in 2016. There are many local market participants that have started introducing tablets in their respective countries, such as Micromax in India and Xiaomi in China, and the number of such vendors is expected to increase during the forecast period.
