Highest Growing Market
According to Stratistics MRC, the Global RF Filter Market is accounted for $12.24 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach $30.76 billion by 2028 growing at a CAGR of 16.6% during the forecast period. In the world of wireless technology, RF filters are essential parts that radio receivers employ to pass the proper frequencies while filtering out undesired ones. It is a device that filters the signal frequency in communication channels and is composed of capacitors, inductors, and resistors. They are commonly used in radio communication systems, wireless devices, and electronic circuits that operate at high frequencies. Radio frequency filters are finding new uses in a number of sectors, including aerospace, healthcare, and the automobile industry.
According to the reports by Global Mobile Suppliers Association, 5G technology is likely to be available to one-third of the world's population by 2025.
Increasing need for seamless connectivity
RF filters are one of the most significant foundational technologies for next-generation systems that require excellent RF performance, such as driverless vehicles, telemedicine, smart buildings, and other connected apps. Since they are a crucial component of the IoT technology stack, filters play an essential part in wireless communication. As a result, this steadily increasing requirement is propelling the market growth.
With several competitors offering a wide range of products, the RF filter industry is quite competitive. Companies who can't distinguish their goods can't compete on price, and can't keep up with these improvements lose their competitive advantage and struggles to hold onto market share. The market forecast for RF filters is predicted to be hampered by this factor.
Adoption of 5G network
One of the world's fastest-growing smartphone marketplaces is found in nations with expanding economies like India. India is also extending its 5G network, which is anticipated to open up new prospects for RF filter producers since the 5G network requires several filters to enhance performance and reliability. The need for RF filters is also increasing as a result of many programs, like "Make in India" and "Digital India," that are meant to encourage the use of digital technology.
Cyclical nature of the semiconductor industry
The market for semiconductors is cyclical by nature. It continually experiences both economic boom and product demand decline. Usually, demand follows end-market need. In times of high demand, it is challenging for semiconductor companies to produce microchips quickly enough. Vendors rely heavily on OEMs to sell their products, which are often produced in large quantities and follow seasonal cycles. The market demand is hampered by these fluctuations.
The market for RF filters has been slightly impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. The demand for RF Filters surged as a result of the development in remote work and the requirement for dependable communication during the epidemic. However, during the first month of the pandemic, the demand for RF filters was impacted by supply chain disruptions and factory closings. As more people work from home and rely on wireless communication devices for both personal and professional communication, the demand for RF filters have raised gradually.
The surface acoustic wave (SAW) filter segment is expected to be the largest during the forecast period
The surface acoustic wave (SAW) filter segment is estimated to have a lucrative growth. Certain frequencies are selectively passed through surface acoustic wave filters while others are blocked. To increase safety and improve the driving experience, it was used in automobile applications as GPS systems, radar, and advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Additionally, the demand for the segment is being fuelled by factors like the growing trend toward electrification of vehicles and wireless communication technologies.
The mobile phone communication segment is expected to have the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The mobile phone communication segment is anticipated to witness the fastest CAGR growth during the forecast period due to the rising demand for high-tech feature phones. Mobile phones and other wireless communication equipment utilize RF filters to block undesired frequencies and guarantee dependable transmission. The expansion of wireless communication devices and networks are accelerating the segment’s demand.
Region with largest share:
North America is projected to hold the largest market share during the forecast period owing to the presence of several key players. Smart phones and other mobile gadgets are widely used in this area. Additionally, the region has a well-developed infrastructure and is able to quickly adopt new technologies. The expansion of the RF filter market in North America is being accelerated by the rising demand for wireless communication technologies like 5G, IoT, and M2M.
Region with highest CAGR:
Europe is projected to have the highest CAGR over the forecast period. Germany is home to several companies that specialize in RF filter design and manufacture. These businesses have access to cutting-edge equipment and research facilities, which enables them to create novel products that satisfy the demands of several sectors. Furthermore, many of the biggest automakers in the world are based in Germany. These businesses employ RF filters extensively in their goods, and as a result, their demand is a key factor in the market's expansion.
