Report Summary:

GaN continues to see strong adoption in RF applications. Driven by wireless infrastructure and growth in defense applications, Strategy Analytics forecasts GaN RF revenue will more than double to reach nearly $690 million in 2020. The industry will migrate to larger wafer diameters, but the vast majority of the revenue will continue to be produced on GaN-on-SiC wafers.
