Gallium Statistics and Information

Statistics and information on the worldwide supply of, demand for, and flow of the mineral commodity gallium

Low-purity, unrefined gallium is not produced in the United States and demand is satisfied by imports, primarily low-purity and high-purity material from Canada, China, Germany, and Japan. About 79% of gallium consumed in the United States is in the form of gallium arsenide (GaAs), gallium nitride (GaN), and gallium phosphide (GaP) wafers. Gallium consumed in the epitaxial layering process to fabricate epiwafers accounted for most of the remainder. Analog and digital integrated circuits accounted for 74% of gallium consumption, with optoelectronic devices (laser diodes, light-emitting diodes, photodetectors, solar cells) accounting for most of the remaining consumption.
