InP substrate market to grow at 38% to $75m in 2012

With demand for bandwidth spurring on development of 40Gb/s and 100Gb/s optical communications networks, the market for indium phosphide bulk substrates will grow at a compound annual average growth rate (CAAGR) of 38% through 2012 to more than $75m, forecasts market research firm Strategy Analytics in its report ‘InP Bulk Substrate Markets 2007-2012 ‘.

Japanese producers continued to dominate the overall supply of InP material in 2007, led by Sumitomo Electric Industries and followed by Nikko Materials, adds Strategy Analytics. The USA’s AXT and France’s InPACT were the leading suppliers of InP material outside Japan, with the UK’s Wafer Technology trailing several market share percentage points behind these companies.
