A major factor propelling growth in this market is the faster product replacement cycle and increased design complexity of smart devices. Currently, products such as smartphones are rapidly becoming obsolete within a short span of time due to quick launches of new and advanced versions of products by vendors. During the forecast period, this reduction in the replacement cycle of smart devices will, in turn, foster the demand for GaAs devices. 

“Market vendors are anticipated to expand their business, improve their market share, and gain access to new technologies through strategic alliances, collaborations, mergers, and acquisitions. These collaborations offer better solutions based on the latest technologies to customers. The formation of new partnerships between vendors is expected to have a positive impact on the growth of the market,” says Sunil Singh, Lead Analyst, Hardware & Semiconductor, Technavio Research.

“Another significant trend in the global GaAs devices market is the development of 3G and 4G networks. As the world is experiencing rapid technological advances, developed and emerging nations are focusing on the deployment of 3G and 4G networks. With the higher adoption of 3G and 4G networks, the demand for GaAs devices will increase exponentially until the end of 2020.”
