The increasing deployment of advanced compound semiconductor technologies for complex defense and aerospace applications, such as radar, satellites, and electronic warfare systems, is driving market expansion in South Korea. Along with this, the market is being driven by an increase in the use of renewable energy products such as solar photovoltaic systems and power converters, which aligns with the country's commitment to sustainability. In addition, the extensive use of compound semiconductors in medical devices for imaging and diagnostic equipment is driving market expansion.
The last stages, such as assembly, testing, and packing, are more expensive due to a lack of innovative technology-based suitable equipment. Due to the reasons stated above, semiconductor industry firms are hesitant to enter the compound semiconductor market. As a result, the growth of the compound semiconductor industry value chain and the development of industrial segments are stifled, limiting the number of participants in this market.
- In 2023, the GaN segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
Based on the type, the South Korea compound semiconductor market is segmented GaN, GaAs, SiC, and InP. Among these, the GaN segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. The high breakdown voltage and low conduction resistance features of GaN enable high-speed switching and device downsizing. GaN devices are small (low parasitic capacitance), enabling for fast switching, high electron mobility and density, and easy downsizing. Unlike typical silicon devices, which require a larger chip area to reduce on-resistance, GaN devices are easily shrunk.
- In 2023, the IT & telecom segment accounted for the largest revenue share over the forecast period.
On the basis of application, the South Korea compound semiconductor market is segmented into IT & telecom, energy & power, aerospace & defense, automotive, consumer electronics, healthcare, others. Among these, the IT & telecom segment has the largest revenue share over the forecast period. Telecommunications is a significant application category in the compound semiconductor market, owing to the rising use of compound semiconductors like GaAs, GaN, Sic and InP. The telecommunications application market is anticipated to have the greatest share over the forecast period. 5G presents a significant opportunity for compound semiconductors in telecom applications.
