Composite Semiconductor Market – Growth, Trends, Impact of COVID-19, and Forecast (2022)



The compound semiconductor market is expected to register a compound annual growth rate of 11% over the forecast period. The COVID-19 pandemic has halted the manufacturing of many products in the composite semiconductor production industry due to continued lockdowns in critical global regions.

NEW YORK, Dec. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Reportlinker.com announces the release of report “Composite Semiconductor Market – Growth, Trends, Impact of COVID-19, and Forecast (2022 – 2027)” – https://www.reportlinker.com/ p06317787/?utm_source=GNW
In addition, nationwide lockdowns imposed by governments around the world have hit sectors and disrupted supply chains and manufacturing operations across the globe. Most manufacturing operations, including factory floor work, were significantly affected, resulting in lower productivity.

the main points
A compound semiconductor is composed of two or more elements from different or the same group of the periodic table. They are manufactured using different types of deposition techniques, such as chemical vapor deposition, atomic layer deposition, and others. They have unique properties like high temperature and heat resistance, enhanced frequency, higher sensitivity to magnetism, faster operation and optoelectronic features are some of the major advantages that increase their demand. Moreover, the decrease in the manufacturing cost of composite semiconductors has led to an increase in their application in electronic and mobile devices.
The ability of composite semiconductors to emit and sense light in the form of general illumination (LEDs), lasers and fiber optic receivers is driving demand. The decrease in the cost of manufacturing and installing LED lights has led to an increase in their application in lamps and fixtures in all sectors. Megacities focus investment in infrastructure development to meet the needs of a growing population, and governments help customers install energy-efficient lighting sources to reduce electricity consumption costs.
For example, during the pandemic, EESL (Energy Efficiency Services Limited) celebrated the completion of its one-year government project called the Unnat Jyoti Program (UJALA). Under this program, it has replaced more than 10.6 million streetlights with LED lights to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 20 million tons and the cost of electricity. Such initiatives promote a well-thought-out market.
In 2020, Taiwan Semiconductor Manufacturing Company (TSMC) sourced about 31% of parts domestically in China, which increased to 31% in 2021.
According to the US Department of Energy (DOE), LED lights use about 75-80% less energy than traditional incandescent bulbs and about 65% less energy than halogen bulbs. Commercial organizations need lighting for a long time, whether for long working hours, safety and security in a warehouse or manufacturing facility, or other uses. Thus, switching to LED lights can save millions of dollars annually. For example, energy recovery customers in the United States can save about 20-55% on their electric utility bills by replacing outdated lighting systems with more modern LED lighting. Therefore, the shift towards LED adoption is driving measured market growth.
The smartphone is the main consumer of composite semiconductors. The smartphone market has been very competitive in recent years. The increasing use of mobile phones is expected to drive the global market. For example, according to Ericsson Mobility Report 2022, by the end of 2027 there will be 4.4 billion 5G subscriptions globally, accounting for 48% of all mobile subscriptions.
IoT applications are increasing, and it is expected to boost composite semiconductor sales. Moreover, the wireless sector is expected to grow with the growth in 5G networks. 5G also points to the potential for consumers to upgrade their mobile devices or devices to drive the global adoption of composite semiconductors.
The composite semiconductor industry is one of the most complex industries, not only because of the more than 500 processing steps involved in manufacturing and various products but also because of the harsh environment it faces, for example, the volatile electronic market and unpredictable demand.

Major market trends

The Center for Integration of Modern Optoelectronic Materials on Demand, or IMOD, is a partnership of scientists and engineers from 11 universities headed by the University of Washington. These initiatives will further drive the studied market.
In June 2022, researchers in the United States (University of Central Florida) and South Korea created multi-length photoelectronic synapses that enable detection, storage, and processing of optical data in the same device. The resulting artificial optical system in the sensor, which greatly improves the processing efficiency and image identification accuracy, may be used by robots, self-driving cars, and machine vision in the future. Like the human eye, where the retina carries optical data through synapses, an optoelectronic synapse allows optical data sensing, memory, and processing to be integrated into the same device.
Furthermore, in August 2022, Yokogawa launched two new Optical Spectrum Analyzers (OSAs) to meet market demand for an instrument capable of measuring a wide range of wavelengths to meet unique needs in optical product expansion and manufacturing.
