Compound Semiconductor Market - Global Trends & Forecasts to 2013 - 2020
This section tells us about the current and upcoming compound semiconductor market on the basis of the geographic region,that is and will be retaining a high growth rate for the compound semiconductor industry. Asia Pacific (APAC) region is expected to face an increasing demand with regards to the compound semiconductor industry, in the upcoming years.
APAC is the region which leads in terms of the number of players dealing with assembling and manufacturing of materials, components, and devices. This region provides a wide platform for carrying out compound semiconductor manufacturing and processing activities. The China-based players dominate the overall global manufacturing-base of the compound semiconductor products. The same scenario is expected to last for the next five-six years. LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) manufactured with the aid of the compound semiconductor technology-MOCVD (Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition) are offering a great demand for the MOCVD equipment. The increasing growth of the LED technology is proving to be a market driver for the MOCVD technology. The China market accounts for 96% share of the revenue generated from the MOCVD equipment. Applications like mobile handsets, including 4G, and photovoltaic cells also add as the market drivers for APAC.
Aixtron SE (Germany) that offers MOCVD equipment for applications like LEDs, power electronics, and photovoltaic materials, has 79% of its total revenue coming from APAC itself. Veeco (U.S.), which also offers MOCVD solutions for LEDs, power electronics, hard drives, MEMS, and wireless chips; is experiencing an increasing interest in the MOCVD equipment from each major country in Asia. These two companies account for an almost 100% market share in the world MOCVD market. The manufacturers of compound semiconductor deposition technologies such as MOCVD are expected to gain increasing revenue from the LED manufacturers based in South Korea and Taiwan. The Chinese government has also set aside huge amount of land for future manufacturing processes and is also providing a number of subsidies to various manufacturing and assembly units.
