Report 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%.

Report Scope

The report measures and forecasts the size of the market in current U.S. dollars as well as in millions of shipment units for components that contain compound semiconductors as primary parts.  This report also measures and forecasts dollar sales of compound semiconductor materials from 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.
