COVID-19 Impact on the Global Compound Semiconductor Market
The COVID-19 crisis has triggered volatility in the stock market, a significant slowdown in the supply chain, a decrease in business confidence, and a rise in fear among the customer segments. The cumulative effect of the pandemic is influencing the manufacturing process of a variety of sectors, including semiconductors and electronics, and many more. Trade barriers further constrain demand and supply outlook. As the government of the different countries declared a total lockdown and a temporary shutdown of industries, the overall output process is adversely affected.
COVID-19 has a significant influence on both the consumer and the economy. Electronics manufacturing centers have been temporarily shut down to restrict the spread of COVID-19 among individuals. This has had a significant effect on the supply chain of the semiconductor industry by generating shortages of products, components, and finished goods. Lack of business continuity has resulted in major negative impacts on revenues, shareholder returns, and revenues, which are projected to result in financial disruptions in the compound semiconductor industry.
The effect of COVID-19 on the manufacturing sector has had a huge impact on the global economy. Electronic components like PCBs, LED chips and wafers, ICs, and other semiconductor devices are primarily imported from China. Due to the closure of manufacturing units, the prices of semiconductor components increased by 2-3% due to a shortage of supplies. In addition, demand for products is changing through ASICS, memory, and sensors, among others, with rapid shifts in consumer behavior.
The global compound semiconductor market has been segmented based on type, product, and application.
By type, the global compound semiconductor market has been segmented into Gallium Nitride (GaN), Indium Antimonide (InSb), Gallium Arsenide (GaAs), Silicon Carbide (SiC), Indium Phosphide (InP), Silicon Germanium (SiGe), Gallium Phosphide (GaP), and others. The others segment includes Cadmium Selenide (CdSe), Aluminum Indium Arsenide (AlInAs), Cadmium Telluride (CdTe), Zinc Selenide (ZnSe), Cadmium Zinc Telluride (CdZnTe), and Mercury Cadmium Telluride (MCT). The Silicon Carbide (SiC) segment is projected to dominate the market during the forecast period. However, the Gallium Nitride (GaN) segment is projected to register the highest CAGR due to the growing application of this material in the general lighting, signage, and automotive sector.
By product, the global compound semiconductor market has been segmented into optoelectronics, RF devices, and power electronics. The optoelectronics segment is further divided into LED, image sensors, laser diode, photovoltaic cells, and optocouplers. The RF devices segment includes RF power and RF switching. The power electronics segment is further divided into the diode, transistor, power modules, and power IC. The optoelectronics segment is expected to hold the largest market share. Furthermore, the LED sub-segment is expected to post the highest CAGR owing to the decrease in LED prices and increasing initiative by the government to promote the adoption of LED.
By application, the global compound semiconductor market has been segmented into lighting, telecommunication, aerospace & defense, automotive, consumer display, and others. The lighting segment is projected to capture the largest market share. However, the telecommunication segment is expected to display a significant CAGR during the forecast period.
