44,300,000 is a big number
Research and analysis by Strategy Analytics says that the recovery of the GaAs industry continued throughout 2010, resulting in a 26% increase in demand for semi-insulating (SI) GaAs substrates. They estimate that 2010 saw the consumption of nearly 30,000,000 square inches of SI GaAs substrates. The market research firm predicts that the total SI GaAs substrate market will grow at a compound annual average growth rate of 6% to more than 44,300,000 square inches in 2015.
