Market Size – USD 36.96 Billion in 2019, Market Growth - CAGR of 7.6%, Market Trends – High demand from developing nations.

The global Compound Semiconductor Materials market is forecast to reach USD 66.66 Billion by 2027, according to a new report by Reports and Data. The market is seeing an expanded interest from the telecommunications industries, where the materials are used for conventional microelectronics, which include digital integrated circuits and analog integrated circuits. Moreover, owing to its high temperature and radiation resistance, the material is used for coating engine components, rocket coatings, and jumpsuit surface coatings, making them suitable for a range of applications in the automobile and aerospace industries. However, shift in material prices, resulting in the need to investigate and implement alternative materials as a replacement for rising total running costs will hamper the market demand.

Within the periodic table, composite semiconductor materials consist of elements from more than two separate groups and can be in binary form, ternary form, or quaternary form, among others. Compound semiconductor materials offer a broader choice of bandwidth than elementary semiconductors like Si and Ge, plus higher electron mobility, wider band gap, and lower thermal noise than elemental semiconductors. It's also capable of generating microwave signals. Also, the fragile crystal structure relative to silicon and higher manufacturing costs associated with compound semiconductor devices is anticipated to impede the development of the market demand.

Optoelectronic devices and wireless technology majorly drive the market. Optoelectronic devices exhibit a high demand for semiconductor compounds. Increasing demand for smartphones and wearable devices has been the main driver in compound semiconductor development over the past few years. Compound semiconductor materials have properties that are useful in electronic devices and equipment such as high electron mobility, lower power consumption, and significant temperature limits. Compound semiconductor materials are also used in applications for light absorption, such as lasers and light-emitting diodes (LEDs). Further, these are used in various space applications where they are integrated with satellite-mounted solar cells because of high resistance to radiation and heat compounding. Materials of compound semiconductors are sensitive to magnetism and thus are used in sensing applications. Composite semiconductor materials are also used in storage devices for optical data.

The COVID-19 impact:

As the COVID-19 crisis grows, manufacturers are rapidly changing their practices and purchasing priorities to meet the demand of a pandemic that has reduced the need for market-based semiconductor materials. A sequence of both positive and negative shocks will arise over a few months, as producers and their vendors adapt to changing demands of customers. The export-dependent economies of many regions look vulnerable, with an unfortunate global situation. The global market is reshaped by the impact of this pandemic when certain manufacturers either close down or decrease their production because of a lack of downstream demand. While some are having their production suspended as a precautionary measure by the governments of their respective nations to combat the spread of the virus. For certain countries, consumers are centered on being more regional by looking at the magnitude of the epidemic and the consequent actions of the national authorities themselves. In these situations, business dynamics in Asia Pacific regions were very dynamic, weakening regularly, making stabilizing themselves difficult.

Key participants include OSRAM, Qorvo, Samsung Electronics, Air Products & Chemicals Inc., Nichia Corporation, Sumitomo Chemical Company Ltd., Cree Inc., Skyworks Solutions, GaN Systems, and Mitsubishi Electric, among others.
