High Cost, Vulnerable Safety Protocols in GaN Chargers Inhibit Market Growth

The GaN-based power supply adapter market is predicted to reach the value of US$ 3 Bn by 2030. However, technology concerns in GaN chargers are inhibiting market growth. For instance, the 65W GaN charger by Chinese tech giant Xiomi has been suspended from online and offline stores due to security vulnerability, since the chip is unencrypted and potentially open to attackers. Companies in the GaN-based power supply adapter market are taking cues from such companies to increase R&D for reliable and encrypted chargers.

The high cost of GaN chargers is another disadvantage for consumer, which is affecting the growth of the GaN-based power supply adapter market. Processes such as high temperature heating of metal gallium and other specific processing conditions tend to increase its manufacturing cost, resulting in an expensive final product. Hence, tech providers are increasing awareness about the small size, safety, and high efficiency of GaN chargers as compared to other chargers including silicon to offset the former’s disadvantages.

However, some factors also hamper the growth of the GaN-based power supply adapter market. These include complexity and cost associated with the production process of GaN-based power supply adapters.
  • In terms of revenue, the global GaN-based power supply adapter market is estimated to exceed the value of US$ 3 Bn by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of 5.5% during the forecast period

Increase in Demand for Energy-efficient Power Supply Devices: A Key Driver of GaN-based Power Supply Adapter Market

  • Although nearly all home electronic products and office equipment plug directly into wall outlets and draw 120 volts of alternating current (AC), most of their circuitry is designed to operate at a much lower voltage of direct current (DC). The devices that perform that conversion are called power supply adapters.
  • According to studies, on an average, most homes have 5 to 10 devices that use power supply adapters, such as cordless phones, mobile phones, and answering machines, hair dryers, and various other products. All these equipment can now be used with the GaN based power supply adapters.
  • Internal power supplies are more prevalent in devices that have greater power requirements, typically more than 15 watts. Such devices include computers, televisions, office copiers, and stereo components. Most internal power supply models use somewhat more efficient designs called switching or switch-mode power supplies.
  • As per the demand of customers, manufacturers are designing power supply devices that confirm energy efficiencies of 50% to 90%, yielding wide variations in power use among similar products. These GaN-based power adapters have improved efficiency, decreased size, and reduced weight.
  • Hence, the increasing demand for energy-efficient power supply devices has a positive impact on the GaN-based power supply adapter market and the impact is expected to be high during the forecast period
