RF GaN Market Update: 2017 - 2022

Report Summary:

Driven by wireless base station and phased array radar applications, RF GaN revenue will surpass $1 billion by 2022. Sumitomo Electronic Device Innovations is the leading supplier, based largely on its dominant position in the base station market. While the supply chain for GaN-on-silicon devices is growing, the vast majority of RF GaN revenue still comes from products produced on GaN-on-SiC wafers.
