The Global High Electron Mobility Transistor (HEMT) Market Size is expected to reach USD 16.82 Billion by 2032, at a CAGR of 14.27% during the forecast period 2022 to 2032.
The High Electron Mobility Transistor, or HEMT, is a type of field effect transistor (FET) that provides an extremely low noise ratio and highly significant levels of efficiency at microwave frequency ranges. Aluminium Gallium Arsenide (AlGaAs) and Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) were among the most commonly used materials for the production of high electron mobility transistor. Gallium Arsenide is commonly utilized because it has greater mobilities and carrier drift velocities than Si material and gives a high level of basic conductivity. High electron mobility transistors, which are capable of functioning at millimeter-wavelength frequencies, are utilized in high-frequency devices, which include smartphones, satellite-TV receivers, power conversion devices, and radar detection systems. They're frequently encountered in microwave receivers, low-power amplifiers, and the aerospace and defense industries. Currently, HEMTs are typically utilized in semiconductor devices. These Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) chips are frequently utilized in RF design.
The major players in the Global High Electron Mobility Transistor (HEMT) Market include Intel Corporation, Mitsubishi, ROHM, NXP Semiconductor N.V., Infineon, ST Microelectronics, Qorvo, Renesas Electronics, and Microsemi. Players in the industry are employing a variety of strategies, including product launches, partnerships, joint ventures, and acquisitions, to increase their market share in the High Electron Mobility Transistor (HEMT) market.
For instance, ROHM Semiconductor announced the mass production of 650V GaN (Gallium Nitride) HEMTs GNP1070TC-Z and GNP1150TCA-Z in May 2023. These devices were tailored for a variety of applications in power supply systems.

The growing demand for cost-effective power systems, as well as increasing consumer demand for consumer electronics, are among the main trends driving high electron mobility transistor market expansion. Given the benefits it offers over alternative materials such as GaAs and SiC, the GaN high electron mobility transistor segment is likely to hold a significant proportion of the worldwide high electron mobility transistor market throughout the period of forecasting.
From the initial stages, the huge number of potential uses for these semiconductors propelled the extremely rapid growth of these transistors. The adoption of gallium nitride (GaN) HEMT devices in electric vehicles, train engines, power distribution, and other applications needing high voltage and high-frequency switching will minimize the price of acquiring such reliable and cost-effective transistors necessary in power electronics. Furthermore, the growing demand for innovative high electron mobility transistor technologies in the aerospace and military industries, as well as automobile manufacturing, is likely to provide growth opportunities for the global high electron mobility transistor market to continue growing.
The majority of semiconductor device manufacturers across the world produce high electron mobility transistors. They can be discrete transistors, but they are currently more commonly included in integrated circuits. These Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) chips are commonly utilized for RF design applications, and MMICs based on high electron mobility transistors are frequently used to give the requisite degree of performance in many sectors. Furthermore, major drivers contributing to the global high electron mobility transistor market growth include increased HEMT device expenditures and growth and development, as well as increased technological improvements in the high electron mobility transistor sector.
However, the lack of conventional procedures for producing and developing HEMT transistor devices is expected to stymie the growth of the high electron mobility transistor market. Furthermore, the performance of GAN HEMTs and the cost of microwave-integrated circuits remains a challenge in terms of market adoption. In addition, temperature's effect in promoting GAN HEMT loss is unresolved and the increased intensity of deterioration variables is also unexplored.
