Global Markets and Technologies for Compound Semiconductors

  1. 1. Global Markets and Technologies for CompoundSemiconductorsReport Details:Published:September 2012No. of Pages: 171Price: Single User License – US$4850REPORT HIGHLIGHTS•Global sales from compound semiconductor components totaled nearly $25.5 billion in 2011 and should surpass $27 billion in 2012. Total sales are expected to reach nearly $47.5 billion in 2017 after increasing at a five-year compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.9%.•The Americas are expected to have sales worth nearly $5.2 billion in 2012 and $8.8 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 11.4%.•EMEA should have sales totaling nearly $8.5 billion in 2012 and nearly $16.4 billion in 2017, a CAGR of 14%.Compound semiconductors have captured the attention of researchers, semiconductor devicemakers, and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) for several years on account of theirsuperior physical and chemical attributes in relation to silicon, the mainstream semiconductormaterial. The greatest value that they bring to the table is that of variety and customization. It isnot surprising that compound semiconductors are the prime ingredients of some of the mostcomplex semiconductor components ever synthesized.Compound semiconductors occupy important places in the scheme of the manufacturing of lasers,optical components, light-emitting diodes (LEDs), filters, mixers, power amplifiers, solar panels,and other devices. The advantages that compound semiconductors offer are higher operatingspeed, lower power consumption, lower noise, higher operating temperature, lightemission/detection, and superior photovoltaic attributes compared to silicon. Additionally, theseattributes change from compound to compound, offering considerable design flexibility.On the flip side, the variety of compounds works unfavorably in terms of scale and consequentpricing. Considering that these materials are pitted against silicon, the most widely availablematerial with the most refined and cost-efficient fabrication process, there is a real danger of thecompetition being rendered lop-sided in favor of silicon.However, it is not entirely accurate to compare and confine compound semiconductors to thebenchmarks set by silicon. Compound semiconductors have a distinct character of their own andthey spawn several use-cases of application that can be catered to only by them. This report is anattempt to capture the value added by compound semiconductors to the larger semiconductor
  2. 2. component industry. The value is assessed at two levels in the component manufacturingprocess: the material stage and the component stage. The report assesses the value ofcompound semiconductor material sold to component manufacturers as well as the value of thecomponents manufactured by these companies. The focus of the report is on the component,which has a perfect balance in the unitary nature of its composition and the diverse nature of itsapplication.STUDY GOALS AND OBJECTIVESThis study has the following goals and objectives:•Measuring and forecasting the global market size for compound semiconductor–based components in value (dollar sales) and volume (shipment sales) terms.•Breaking down the global compound semiconductor component market along the following individual components in value and volume terms: lasers and optical components; LEDs; radio frequency (RF) front end and power amplifier chipsets; and solar/ photovoltaic (PV) panels and cells.•Breaking down the market for individual compound semiconductor components along the following end applications in value and volume terms: telecommunications; instrumentation and scientific research; medicine; energy, defense, and surveillance; computing and entertainment; industrial and automotive; retail; and others.•Breaking down the market for individual compound semiconductor components along the following regions in value and volume terms: the Americas; Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA); and Asia Pacific (APAC).•Breaking down the market for individual compound semiconductor components along the following compound semiconductor families in value and volume terms: binary II-VI, binary III-V, binary IV-IV, and others.•Breaking down the market for individual compound semiconductor components along relevant individual compound semiconductors in value terms.•Breaking down the market for individual compound semiconductor components along the following countries in value and volume terms: U.S., Brazil, Canada, Mexico, Germany, U.K., France, Italy, Spain, Russia, The Netherlands, Turkey, China, Japan, India, Indonesia, and South Korea.•Breaking down the market for compound semiconductor materials used in individual compound semiconductor components along the following compound semiconductor families in value terms: binary II-VI, binary III-V, binary IV-IV, and others.•Analyzing the stakeholder landscape in the compound semiconductor component value chain.•Analyzing the patenting activity involving compound semiconductor components.REASONS FOR DOING THE STUDYCompound semiconductors provide a welcome departure from the cut-throat cost-competitivescheme of silicon fabrication. It will not be out of place to mention that the bulk of innovation onthe process and device front is driven by compound semiconductors and that they occupy adisproportionately large share of this activity. It is undisputable that compound semiconductors
  3. 3. win hands down in terms of physical and chemical attributes over silicon. It is equally clear thatsilicon will continue to enjoy a substantial competitive advantage in terms of operating scale andavailability for the foreseeable future.This report aims to provide a quantitative point of view with regard to the tightrope traversed bycompound semiconductors. The report tries to bring out the quantitative contribution of compoundsemiconductors to the components driven by them, in terms of plain bill of materials (BoMs). Atthe same time, the report examines the value added by compound semiconductors in qualitativeterms.Essentially, the report focuses on components, which can be easily quantified and whose physicalattributes can be compared, contrasted, tracked and analyzed.Each component has its own dynamics, benefits and challenges with respect to levels of adoptionof compound semiconductors. On a larger note, each component has its own market momentumdictated by the health of the end-application verticals as well as relevant macroeconomic factors.When these aspects are mapped for individual countries, they produce a fascinating collage oflocal market conditions that add to the larger picture. This report provides a granular view ofindividual country markets in volume and value terms for 17 key nations spanning all globalregions. There are several variables to be considered: preferred compounds, cost benefits ofcompeting compounds, entry-level barriers, level of fragmentation, state of innovation, and attitudeof governments in terms of support, as well as future avenues for market expansion. This reportattempts to look at all of these factors and quantify their impact on the state of the demand forcompound semiconductors and their components.SCOPE OF THE REPORTThe report measures and forecasts the size of the market in current U.S. dollars as well as inmillions of shipment units for components that contain compound semiconductors as primaryparts. This report also measures and forecasts dollar sales of compound semiconductor materialsfrom 2012 through 2017.The report forecasts the market size for the following:•Individual compound semiconductor components such as lasers and optical components; LEDs; RF power amplifier and front-end chipsets; and solar/PV cells and panels. It should be noted that in solar panel shipments one square meter of the panel is considered to be a unit. It also should be noted that the component market sizes in this report do not reflect the total market for such components, but only those portions that contain compound semiconductors as primary parts.•The above forecasts are classified in terms of vertical end applications, geographical regions, compound semiconductor families, and countries on volume and value bases; in terms of value chain contributors on a value basis; and in terms of individual key compound semiconductors on a value basis.•Additionally, the report forecasts the sales of compound semiconductor family materials for each of the individual compound semiconductor components.The Executive Summary provides a snapshot of key findings of the report.
