I am wondering if experts are predicting what percent of this market in the next five years will be using higher voltage GaN based power transistors. Has anyone taken a shot at this market size?

The last paragraph said "...low-voltage power FETs (up to 200 volts) rising at a CAGR of 6.7 percent to $16.4 billion by 2015...", it seems not consitent with the graph (the biggest red bubble) followed below. I think there could be typos or anything I misunderstand? Who can help please?

The growth in the power transistors is driven mostly because of the research advancements in the various forms of alternative energy. This is a very good news for the power transistor manufacturers.

"low-voltage" means 200 V in the power world. This doesn't seem like something for the masses, but only for a few "elite" regulators.

This is very interesting since the implication is that more products will be manufactured (and hopefully sold).
