Gallium Statistics and Information

Gallium is not produced in the United States, and demand is satisfied by imports, primarily high-purity material from France and low-purity material from Kazakhstan and Russia.   More than 95% of gallium consumed in the United States is in the form of gallium arsenide (GaAs).   Analog integrated circuits are the largest application for gallium, with optoelectronic devices [mostly laser diodes and light-emitting diodes] as the second largest end use.
