The GaAs Wafer market is estimated to grow from USD 0.7 billion in 2019 to USD 1 billion by 2025, at a CAGR of approximately 6%. The future of the GaAs wafer market creates new prospects to the GaAs wafer suppliers in the radio frequency electronic and optoelectronic applications. The GaAs Wafer market is expected to decline in 2020 due to COVID-19 and is expected to recover in 2021. The major growth drivers for this market are growth of smartphones and growing penetration of light emitting diode (LED).

APAC is the largest along with the fastest growing region in the global GaAs Wafer market due to increasing growth of the semiconductor industry seen in China, Japan, and Taiwan.

Optoelectronic is expected to remain the largest applications for GaAs wafer due to growth of LEDs and lasers.

GaAs Wafer market is consolidated and some of the major players of the market include Freiberger Compound Materials GmbH, Sumitomo Electric Industries, Ltd., AXT, Inc., Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, DOWA Electronics Materials Co. and others.
