Emerging semiconductor substrates: what will be the next game-changer?

The silicon world is not perfect. It is a fact. Industrial companies are daily trying to push this substrate beyond its limits…

Under this context, alternative platforms and compound semiconductors have emerged and the semiconductor industry is showing today lot of success stories: GaAs for RF and photonics applications, SiC for power and RF applications, GaN -on-sapphire for LEDs , and SOI for RF and CIS imaging sensors and more. Without doubts, electronics and photonics applications are creating plenty of opportunities for emerging semiconductor substrates. Combined, Yole Développement (Yole) expects the emerging semiconductor substrate market to surpass US$400 million, growing at a 24% CAGR between 2018 and 2024.

The market research and strategy consulting company, Yole proposes today a comprehensive technology & market report focused on the emerging semiconductor substrates. Emerging Semiconductor Substrates: Market & Technology Trends report covers state-of-the-art crystalline semiconductor substrates, including GaSb , InSb , GaN, Ga2O3 , AlN , and diamond. GaN, AlN templates, and engineered substrates like POI are also well detailed in this market & technology analysis. The emerging semiconductor substrates report conveys Yole Développement’s (Yole) understanding of these substrates’ application potential in RF, power electronics, photonics (including laser diodes), LEDs, sensors, and detectors.

This report is part of Yole’s global strategy to propose a deep understanding of the overall semiconductor supply chain and its evolution. From emerging semiconductor substrates to UV LED or EEL, including RF components for 5G for example, analysts are daily interacting with leading companies to understand technical issues and market challenges. With a special focus on emerging substrates, Yole’s analysts point out today opportunities of business and development for emerging substrates and related products… Full story
