According to Stratistics MRC, the Global Microwave Devices Market is accounted for $6.82 billion in 2021 and is expected to reach $11.03 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 7.1% during the forecast period. Microwave devices are a subtype of electronic devices that are used for wireless transmission of signals such as transistors and diodes. It is also known as micro kill waves which have a relatively shorter wavelength than radio waves. Moreover, microwave devices provide both extremely high frequency and ultra-high frequency to perform various electronic applications. Additionally, the devices are used as radar signals, navigation, satellite communications, and smartphones. These devices are also used in the household application as well as for medical treatments.

Market Dynamics:


Growing Demand for Improved Communication Services by Defense Sector

The increasing need to transfer confidential information leads to the increasing adoption of these devices across the defence sector. It uses microwave links to create point-to-point communication that aids in delivering maximum information enabled with high security to the end-user. Besides, the increasing prevalence of cancer is expected to boost the demand for microwave technology extensively adopted for medical imaging to detect life-threatening disease across the healthcare industry globally. These factors are expected to contribute to the global microwave devices market growth in the forthcoming years.


High Cost of Equipment and Installation 

Instability in the prices of these materials is one of the factors likely to hamper the market growth during the projected period. The waveguide runs in the microwave antennas which is at the outer part of the transmitter required a high maintenance and installation cost. However, the microwave processing equipment and installation are expensive which many hinder the growth of the market.


Growing Demand for Miniaturization

An increase in demand for miniaturization is one of the factors creating opportunities for the market. It is used to improve the performance as well as the operation efficiency of the devices. However, it miniaturizes the dimension of the microwave circuit at the given frequency. Also, many technologies have been followed for the miniaturized device that enables both thicknesses as well as the lateral for the structure. Moreover, these devices created new growth by enhancing their application faster in the advancement of modern communication technology.


Electromagnetic Interference

Electromagnetic radiation has occurred as an alarming threat for the advanced equipment operating in GHz range. Electromagnetic radiations arise from wind turbines, electric motors, and transmission lines. They can penetrate through the infrastructure equipped with microwave devices and propagate as normal signals. These radiations create an unwanted and deteriorating noise known as Electromagnetic Interference (EMI), which can hamper the operations of electronic infrastructure. EMI causes false-out and fluctuations in the microwave signal execution, degrading the performance of equipment. Electronic malfunctions may further hinder the effective use of frequency bands or lead to ignition.

Active Microwave Devices segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period

This is ascribable to factors such as the increasing development of these devices owing to its high demand for numerous industrial applications such as defense, space, and healthcare, among others. The increased usage of various solid-state microwave devices such as Solid State Power Amplifiers (SSPA) along with Travelling Wave Tube Amplifiers (TWTA) in various applications, has contributed to the growth of the market.

The Space & Communication segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period

The space & communication segment accounted for a highest CAGR, owing to the increase in the number of high-throughput satellites (HTS) and growing investments in space and related exploration activities are expected to drive the growth for the segment. The growing prominence of real-time video and audio streaming services has led to an increase in the use of microwave devices in the space & communication domain.

Region with largest share:

The North America is projected to hold the highest market share; this is accrediting to the presence of major companies such as Teledyne Technologies Incorporated, Analog Devices Inc., Qorvo Inc., and L3 Harris Technologies that are developing advanced microwave devices to cater to the growing demand from the healthcare and defence sector in the province. The growth in investments in space & communication along with high defence expenditure is a few factors fuelling the growth of the North American microwave devices market. This dominance is owing to the growing focus on the development of the space and defence industry in the region. The U.S. government spends a high amount on space research and development.

Region with highest CAGR:

Asia Pacific is projected to have the highest CAGR, this growth is accredited to the growing government spending for the modernization of military weapons systems. Besides, the Chinese and Indian governments have increased their focus on the development of advanced military radar systems to strengthen military capabilities. Moreover, the growing procurement of advanced equipment for the 5G technology in China and India is propelling the market growth in the Asia Pacific.
