Historical Analysis Vs. Future Projections for SiC & GaN Power Semiconductor Market

According to Fact.MR, growth rate for SiC & GaN power semiconductor products was noted as 20.8% in past one decade. Demand of these semiconductors is being raised due to their extensive implementation in leading power modules, motor drivers, power supplies and PV inverters across the globe.

Increase in the number of solar devices implemented over past five years uplifted the consumption of SiC & GaN power semiconductors in Asia-Pacific region. This industry expansion of products related with solar based energy production acts as a boon for the manufacturers. Multiplication factor of 2.5X was achieved for consumption of SiC & GaN components over past half-decade.

Attributed to technological enhancements in semiconductor industry, applications related to SiC semiconductor holds potential to multiply its growth by 4.2X by the end of 2032. Moreover, GaN semiconductor utilized in (LED) light emitting diodes and RF components is expected to gain 458 BPS and reach value of US$ 1,608 billion in East Asia by 2032.


  • The global sales of semiconductors rose in the last decade with the rise in consumer electronics sales. The semiconductors make up a significant part of modern electronics including laptops, smartphones, and PCs. With the inclusion of many electronic devices into our daily lives it won’t be wrong to state that semiconductors have their central importance. The market is hence competitive and extensive. The semiconductor sales in 2021 crossed USD 599 billion which is led by memory semiconductors.

  • Through the use of a thinner drift layer and a higher impurity concentration, SiC's 10x greater breakdown electric field strength than silicon allows for the configuration of power devices operating at higher voltages (600V to thousands of V). These semiconductors are highly preferable in power solutions operating on higher voltage. The lower on-resistance makes these semiconductors an ideal choice for greater withstand voltages.

  • Wide band gap semiconductors are characterized by higher electrical breakdown and field strength. This allows the breakdown of the voltage as similar to silicon with a V layer much thinner than SiC.

  • GaN wafers subtract are more expensive than that SiC as they have a horizontal structure with an active layer. This makes it find use in more and more usages in applications where extremely faster switching is required.

Category-wise Analysis

How SiC material semiconductor is set to control global semiconductor market?

Out of the major material types (SiC & GaN) associated with power semiconductors, SiC holds more strong demand outlook compared to that of gallium nitride semiconductors. Quantifiable analysis associated with aforementioned point is that SiC semiconductor generates around ~58-59% revenue from its demand in electronic components.

Technical research have been accomplished for electronic products such as diodes, transistors, MOSFETs, power supplies, and high frequency temperature control systems. The results obtained explains that limitations associated to low band gap provided by pure silicon. In contrast to it, silicon carbide offering almost 3X the band gap offered by silicon boots its demand in high temperature semiconductor applications.

Why SiC Power Module Technology is under great demand?

Considering the group of materials used in power module semiconductors, silicon carbide comes under the most used material. This fact is valued by SiC’s ability to loose only a minimum amount of energy when implemented in any power conversion process. Aforementioned benefit reduces the cost of expensive cooling systems, which attracts more semiconductor buyers towards this semiconductor.

Aforementioned trend helps to anticipate that the demand of SiC semiconductor in power module is set to multiply by factor of 3.5X. Other prominent advantage for using SiC power module is its extremely low switching loss while operating in applications such as MOSFETs, EV chargers, and solar inverters. This technical dominance will increase the opportunity for SiC semiconductor manufacturers to expand their product reach.
