Product Launch and Development has Been the Key Strategies Adopted by the Players to Grow and Stay Competitive in the Gallium Nitride Semiconductor Device Market


The gallium nitride semiconductor device market has been segmented on the basis of wafer size, device type, application, vertical, and geography. The gallium nitride semiconductor device market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 4.6% between 2017 and 2023.

Product launch and development has been the key strategies adopted by the players to grow and stay competitive in the gallium nitride semiconductor device market. This strategy accounted for a share of ~68% of the overall growth strategies adopted by the key players between January 2014 and July 2017. The ongoing research and developments in gallium nitride semiconductor device space have encouraged companies to adopt this strategy. Besides product launches and developments, the companies also focus on agreements, acquisitions, and collaborations to expand their product portfolio, sales, and distribution network. This strategy significantly increased their market shares and strengthened their position in the overall gallium nitride semiconductor device market. These strategies collectively accounted for ~32% of the overall growth strategies adopted by the key market players between January 2014 and July 2017.

Efficient Power Conversion Corporation (EPC) (US) manufactures enhancement-mode gallium nitride power transistors. EPC has a broad portfolio of gallium nitride products that features ultra-high frequency FETs, enhancement mode monolithic half-bridges, and demo boards. All its gallium nitride-based products find applications in datacom/telecom DC–DC, envelope tracking, wireless power, space applications, light detection and ranging (LiDAR), class D audio amplifiers, power inverter, medical technology, wireless charging, multi-level AC–DC power supplies, synchronous rectification, robotics, and solar micro inverters. The company has a dynamic research and development activities and has developed proprietary enhancement-mode gallium nitride technology that would replace power MOSFETs and LDMOS solutions. EPC has built and continues to develop a comprehensive IP portfolio including patents granted in China, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, and the US. The company has signed a partnership with JJPlus Corporation (Taiwan) to design gallium nitride-based wireless power solutions for wireless charging systems. The company has also collaborated with Freebird Semiconductor Corporation (US) and Integrated Device Technology, Inc. (US) to develop gallium nitride-based products using its eGaN technology.

Qorvo (US) was formed in 2015 through the merger of RF Micro Devices (RFMD) (US) and TriQuint Semiconductor Inc. (US). The company is one of the leading suppliers of RF solutions with broad product portfolio serving application such as defense, base station, Wi-Fi customer premises equipment, optical, automotive connectivity, and smart home IoT. The company is the major supplier of gallium nitride-based products to global defense and aerospace serving the US government through contracts with the Defense Advanced Research Project Agency, the Air Force Research Laboratory and the Office of Naval Research. The United States Department of Defense (DoD) has certified its gallium nitride fabrication and production capabilities at Manufacturing Readiness Level 9, which is the highest in the industry. The company is also helping the industry with the ongoing 5G field trials with its current product portfolio. In 2016, the company had a remarkable growth in Wi-Fi, base station and gallium nitride product portfolio. The company has signed the distribution agreement with Richardson RFPD (US), RFMW Ltd. (US), and Mouser Electronics (US) to market and sell its gallium nitride-based products across the world.
