Charging's Next Frontier: Innovations in Multi-Device Fast Charging Technology and Outlook on the Gallium Nitride Market

In the realm of smart device charging, technological innovation has always been a key driving force behind market development. This is especially evident over the past few years as Apple gradually advanced USB PD fast charging technology. Since embracing this standard with the iPhone 8 series in 2017, the 18W PD charger quickly became a popular choice in consumer markets. With the iPhone 12 series omitting the included charger in 2020, the PD fast charging market encountered unprecedented opportunities for growth. As a manufacturer with over 10 years of experience in phone accessories, BHD will capitalize on this trend by actively providing solutions that meet the booming demand for advanced charging technology.

The Trend Towards Multi-Port Fast Charging: Arising from Diverse User Needs

Based on rough statistics, up to now, the stock of iPhones with PD fast charging function on the market is about 1 billion units, highlighting the immense demand potential for USB PD fast charging technology. Furthermore, the diverse array of Apple ecosystem devices, including iPads, MacBooks, AirPods, and Apple Watches, mostly transitioning to USB-C charging, further fueled the market's desire for multi-functional USB-C chargers.

All-in-One Charging Solutions: The Rise of Multi-Port Fast Chargers

Given that traditional single-port chargers fail to meet the dual demands of efficient charging and portability, multi-port chargers that can quickly charge multiple devices simultaneously as well as keep the desktop cleaner have become a new favorite among consumers.

Commonly found in the market are multi-port chargers ranging in power from 20W to 130W. Among these, products within the 65W to 100W range are particularly favored for balancing high performance with practicality. These chargers typically feature multiple USB-C ports, catering not only to various electronic devices but also significantly streamlining the charging process, whether at home, in the office, or while traveling, thus greatly enhancing user experience. (The followings are BHD's new multi-port wall chargers: 65W 100W 130W)




Leading Brands Driving the Industry, Diverse Array of Multi-Port Fast Charging Products

In response to market trends, numerous consumer electronics and mobile accessory manufacturers are competing to release a variety of high-power fast-charging products. These range from 20W dual-port to 100W multi-port chargers, all equipped with multiple USB-C ports, to meet the growing market demand and are well-received by consumers.

Gallium Nitride Technology: Opening a New Chapter in Charger Efficiency and Portability

In order to achieve the perfect combination of high-power multi-port output and lightweight design, Gallium Nitride (GaN) emerges as a novel semiconductor material, gradually demonstrating its unique advantages. Compared to traditional materials, GaN boasts wider bandwidth, higher efficiency, and temperature resistance, enabling the creation of chargers with smaller volumes and higher power densities. As a result, chargers not only deliver greater power, faster charging, smaller sizes, and better heat dissipation but also add unique value to brands in the market competition.

Gallium Nitride Chip Market: Rapid Growth and Continuous Expansion of Application Boundaries

According to industry analysis, companies like Navitas Semiconductor and Power Integrations dominate around 53% of the global GaN chip supply, collaborating with numerous digital brands and mobile manufacturers to drive the widespread application of GaN chargers. By the end of 2020, the global GaN chip market had exceeded 290 million USD, with a projected annual growth rate of over 60% from 2020 to 2025.

The application areas have expanded from consumer electronics to include new energy vehicles, data centers, and more industries, demonstrating a vibrant development trend and vast market space. As an experienced OEM/ODM phone accessories manufacturer, BHD Tech is very confident to be your trusted partner and seize this opportunity with you.
