Market Insight

Next generation chips are causing an upsurge in the use of compound semiconductors that combine two or more elements to create a compound. Gallium arsenide (GaAs), zinc selenide (ZnSe), gallium nitride (GaN), indium phosphide (InP), and silicon carbide (SiC) are some of the examples of compound semiconductors. However, the current concerns over the spread of coronavirus is negatively impacting the market as consumer electronics and automotive will be hit the worst by movement restrictions as well as the rapidly changing consumer behavior with future volatility. In addition, global supply chains have disrupted as the virus spreads across the globe bringing uncertainties in the overall semiconductor industry. Nonetheless, as the emphasis on reducing human interaction and social distancing rise, AI solutions are predicted to surge during the pandemic, which will also require compound semiconductors to achieve full commercialization.


The increasing use of compound semiconductors in LED applications such as automotive lighting, general lighting, and signage displays, and growing demand for mobile and wireless products are some major factors drives the global compound semiconductor market over the forecast period. They are being used in power amplifiers for smartphones and other wireless devices, light sources for DVDs and Blu-rays, LEDs, solar batteries, and solar cells and gyro stabilisers in satellites. The less power consumption, cost-effective, and high electron mobility is some features offered by compound semiconductors escalating the growth of the market. Compound semiconductors have properties that outperform silicon. These semiconductors can operate at much higher frequencies and handle much higher power levels enabling high-speed processing that's over 100 times faster than silicon. Besides this, increasing uses of compound semiconductor in several end-use industries such as automotive, telecommunication, military, and aerospace and defense, healthcare and many others contributes to the market growth. The telecommunications industry is one of the largest end-use industries. Moreover, the expanding implementation of GaN and SiC in the semiconductor industry is also contributing to the growth of the compound semiconductor market.  However, compatibility issues about high-end materials such as silicon are expected to restraints the growth of the global compound semiconductor market. Going further, government initiative regarding the adoption of green technologies for electric vehicles creates growth opportunities for the market in the near future.


Asia Pacific dominates the global compound semiconductor market over the forecast period. The growth of this region is attributed owing to the increasing application in several industries, such as automotive and military, telecommunication, and aerospace and defense.
