The Gallium Arsenide Market: Overview and Dynamics
As the world is moving forward to adopt 5G in the future, the market is also shifting its preferences from the old school technologies to the innovative evolution. The properties like ultra-high frequency, light-weightiness, great heat resistance, extremely high electron mobility and absorption and emission of light gives the Gallium Arsenide an integral role in the semiconductor market. The wide advantages of the compound have made it a popular alternative of silicon in the integrated circuits of the 5G handsets.
Gallium Arsenide has its application usage in the manufacturing of infrared light-emitting diodes, monolithic microwave integrated circuits, infrared light-emitting diodes, integrated microwave circuits, solar cells, and optical windows. Gallium Arsenide has a direct bandgap, unlike other semiconductors which is the main reason behind its high light emission and efficiency. The satellites and spirit rovers orbiting Mars have solar panels comprising of Gallium Arsenide. The next generation of supercomputers and communication equipment are backed with the presence of Gallium Arsenide.
Not only may the Telecomm industry be benefitted from the Gallium Arsenide but also the photovoltaic properties of the same is used in the production of the solar panels. The rising concern among the people on depletion of non-renewable resources has made them adopt solar panels and sheets owing to the increase in the growth of Gallium Arsenide market. The LEDs, laser diodes, optical windows, medical devices and many more have gained value after the incorporation of Gallium Arsenide among them.
The year 2018 marked a high worldwide radio frequency Gallium Arsenide device owing to a growing wireless telecommunications infrastructure in Asia. The robust use was also witnessed in the military radar and wireless communication applications in this region. The LED production and consumption in the Asia Pacific regions makes the most of the Gallium Arsenide market after the smartphones market. The further installation of 4G and 5G mobile networks in India and South Korea is further expected to drive the Gallium Arsenide market.
Although the compound, Gallium Arsenide is ought to serve many advantages however, it has also been a topic of controversies regarding its carcinogenic effects on living beings. The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) has cautioned the workers of the semiconductors factories upon the inhalation or ingestion of the compound may cause cancer. Government-based regulatory bodies like OSHA and ECHA have taken out guidelines on the use of Gallium Arsenide in semiconductor manufacturing.
The manufacturing of Gallium Arsenide must be monitored and highly regulated. The process equipment operators and technicians are prone to maximum exposure so they must work in so-called “clean rooms” inside the semiconductors facility. The difference between hazard and risk is that hazard is anything that can cause harm and risk is a chance that somebody will be harmed by that hazard. So, the workers that are not exposed directly to Gallium Arsenide are in the lesser risk caused by the chemical Gallium Arsenide.
The Gallium Arsenide Market: COVID-19 Impact Insights
The pandemic COVID-19 adversely impacted the global economy due to imposed lockdowns and complete shutdowns in almost all the regions in the world. The manufacturing and the supply chain of maximum industries witnessed a huge slump in the initial phase of the year. The Gallium Arsenide market an essential part of the semiconductor market also slacked off in the early months of the pandemic. Restriction in travelling resulted in supply chain disruption which ultimately affected the Gallium Arsenide market.
Stoppage in manufacturing activities was choking veins of the economy and it also harmed the Gallium Arsenide market as the demand depends on it. However, the increasing demand of the electronic devices during the lockdown and the constant development in the 5G, Wi-Fi, LAN, etc. in the countries like Japan, China, and the U.S. helped to gain the momentum of the Gallium Arsenide market as early as predicted.
The new process technologies and innovation in the automobile, aerospace and defence, medical, oil and gas and other industries are driving the Gallium Arsenide market to an increased CAGR in the forthcoming years. Also, the increment in the use of smartphones during the pandemic has paved the way for Gallium Arsenide positively. Moreover, uplifting of lockdown has begun in few regions showing a ray of hope for the Gallium Arsenide market to bounce back strongly.
