Revenue from RF GaN-enabled devices experienced another year of fast growth, increasing by 30% in 2020 to cross the $1 billion barrier for the first time, according to a new report from Strategy Analytics.

Strategy Analytics forecasts that the long-term prospects for RF GaN revenue growth look good, with 5G base station and defense applications pushing revenue to almost $2 billion in 2025.

“Base stations continue to be the largest and fastest growing opportunity for RF GaN revenue,” noted Eric Higham Director of the Advanced Semiconductor Applications (ASA) and Advanced Defense Systems (ADS) services. “Last year saw Huawei continue their aggressive buying patterns for base station deployments in China as a buffer to US trade sanctions. We may see some short-term volatility depending on China’s 5G deployment plans, but the fundamentals for RF GaN devices in commercial and defense applications remain strong and I expect revenue to approach $2 billion by 2025.”
