GaAs, which is also known as a compound III-V semiconductor, is used in devices such as infrared LED, monolithic microwave ICs (MMICs), microwave frequency ICs, solar cells, optical windows, and laser diodes. It is increasingly used as a replacement for silicon wafers due to its electronic properties. GaAs has high saturated electron velocity and electron mobility, which allow GaAs devices to function efficiently at frequencies above 250 GHz. Due to the wider band gap, GaAs wafers are less sensitive to heat and emit less noise, especially at higher frequencies, compared to silicon wafers. Due to these properties, they are used in mobile devices, wireless communications, aerospace and defense, and automotive systems.

The analysts forecast global gallium arsenide (GAAS) wafer market to grow at a CAGR of 12.69% during the period 2016-2020.
