Sapphire is gaining its early maturity stage. There is a surge of sapphire-based devices and applications that can be employed in a number of industry verticals. Thanks to the advancement in growth technologies; it is now possible to leverage high-end technologies for the processing of sapphire that can be extensively used in applications that are yet to be developed.

The key market drivers for sapphire include high cost effectiveness compared to other materials as the cost incurred in the growth of this material is very low compared to its peers. For example, the cost of 2-inch GaN wafer is more than 10 times the cost of 2-inch sapphire wafer. Other key driver for sapphire is the vast addressable market for sapphire power semiconductors such as RFIC, IC, and MMIC. The important driver for the growth of the sapphire technology market is the LED market application that holds the crown of the entire sapphire ecosystem. While the already existing materials, apart from sapphire, have an established supply chain, it would eventually be helpful for sapphire as well. In spite of being in its growth stage and facing an increasing demand, sapphire still has some restraints that restrict its growth. The key market restraints can be classified as: high level of competition from the new entrants due to innovative technology, high market growth and competition from the high-end materials which is fierce due to the rising demand in the high-end products.

This report focuses on giving a detailed view of the complete sapphire industry with regards to the growth technology, with detailed market segmentations, combined with qualitative analysis of each and every aspect of the classification on the basis of growth technology, production methods, substrate wafer type, devices, applications, sub-applications, and geography. All the numbers, both, revenue and volume, at every level of detail, are forecast till 2020 to give a glimpse of the potential revenue base in this market.

Major players in Sapphire Technology Market include: GT Advanced Technology (U.S), Rubicon Technology (U.S.), Namiki Precision Jewel Co. Ltd (Japan), Monocrystal Inc. (Russia), DK Aztec Co. Ltd (Korea), and Tera Xtal (Taiwan) among others.
