The SiC & GaN Power Semiconductor Market: Forecasts and Drivers
This presentation will share key findings from the latest IHS Markit Technology report on Silicon Carbide and Gallium Nitride Power Semiconductors. It will present up-to-date ten-year forecasts for the global markets, identifying where these technologies can compete with silicon in terms of device type and application. It will evaluate the likely key applications, presenting a mid-case scenario for both technologies depending on a number of factors. The SiC & GaN wafer substrate supply chain will be discussed. Finally, I will try to answer the question: what is needed to drive a faster ramp up of SiC and GaN revenues?
