Microelectronic revenue continues strong growth

Recent financial reports from companies in the microelectronics segment of the compound semiconductor industry indicate continued sharp revenue growth, notes the Strategy Analytics GaAs and Compound Semiconductor Technologies Service (GaAs) viewpoint ‘Compound Semiconductor Industry Review April 2011: Microelectronics’.

The viewpoint from market research firm Strategy Analytics summarizes April’s technology, product, contract, financial and employment developments from major microelectronics firms such as RF Micro Devices, Skyworks Solutions, Fairchild, Fujitsu, Hittite Microwave, TriQuint Semiconductor, Soitec and WIN Semiconductors addressing commercial and military applications using gallium arsenide (GaAs), gallium nitride (GaN), silicon carbide (SiC), and complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) technologies.

“The strong revenue reports which Strategy Analytics saw in April show continued compound semiconductor market expansion,” notes Eric Higham, director of the Strategy Analytics GaAs and Compound Semiconductor Technologies Service. “Growth in this industry is broad-based as both gallium arsenide (GaAs) and silicon manufacturers are showing strong year-on-year revenue gains,” he adds.

“Increasing data consumption is driving development in consumer electronics and networks,” comments Asif Anwar, director, Strategy Analytics Strategic Technologies Practice.
