Market Insights on Millimeter Wave Sensors covering sales outlook, demand forecast and up-to-date key trends

Millimeter Wave Sensors Market Outlook (2023 to 2033)

A newly-released millimeter wave sensors market analysis report by Future Market Insights shows that sales are expected to grow to US$ 5.76 billion in 2023. With an expected CAGR of 7% from 2023 to 2033, the market is expected to reach a valuation of US$ 11.33 billion. Applications in telecommunication equipment will experience the maximum surge, growing at a CAGR of 6.7%. Increasing connectivity demands from residential and commercial applications are driving the demand for millimeter wave sensors & modules.

Several industries, including drones, medical applications, transportation, and mines, are enjoying revenue gains due to the advancement of millimeter wave sensors. Industrial and manufacturing applications have seen an upsurge in demand for millimeter wave sensors, being used for monitoring personnel and machinery, measuring temperature in rooms, and detecting hazardous substances. Strong demand for bandwidth-intensive applications and the increasing number of research and development activities in millimeter wave technology is expected to propel the market growth in the next few years. In contrast to other radar technologies, this technology is not affected by inclement weather conditions, which has made it widely used in satellite remote sensing and missile navigation.

High-bandwidth, high-speed internet across the telecom sector is becoming increasingly important as bandwidth-intensive applications, especially from consumer electronics, such as smartphones and wearable electronics, become more prevalent in the market. Across the military and defense industries, millimeter wave sensors can be found in radars and security systems. Furthermore, the increased use of millimeter wave equipment in wireless backhaul networks will continue to contribute positively to the growth of the millimeter wave sensor market in the future. 5G mobile communications are one of the most promising applications for the millimeter wave sensors market and might offer vast opportunities for players in this industry.

For instance, Fujitsu developed a video-based behavioral analysis AI technology called Actlyzer in 2019. With the help of data, the Actlyzer AI model recognizes approximately 100 basic human movements. Millimeter-wave sensors were designed for places where cameras were forbidden, including hospitals and nursing homes.

Texas Instruments releases their mmWave AWR1642 and IWR1642 sensors that support 76 to 81 GHz. With a fraction of the power of comparable sensor technologies, the sensors deliver three times more accurate sensing. By late 2018, mmWave radar sensors started showing up in vehicles, allowing long, short, and medium-range radar applications. In addition to making the car safer, these applications made it smarter. Additionally, engineers developed autonomous parking systems based on the automotive-qualified AWR1642 sensor that detects free space, obstacles, occupants, intruder alerts, and smart parking.

The millimeter wave sensor market in North America is expected to grow at the fastest rate owing to the early adoption of emerging technologies and growing demand from countries such as the United States and Canada. Asia Pacific's telecom infrastructure is being developed and upgraded, contributing to the rapid growth of technology. Additionally, as MM wave sensors are installed in new telecom equipment across the region, the market is expected to grow at a significant rate.

Automotive and aerospace industries are expected to benefit greatly from millimeter wave sensors in the future. Driver assistance systems are rapidly gaining traction with millimeter wave sensors, and the technology is employed in several applications, including automatic parking systems, cruise control systems, and lane departure warning systems. As part of its collision avoidance and aircraft surveillance efforts, the aerospace industry is investing significantly in millimeter wave sensors. Millimeter wave sensors will continue to be in demand in the future as autonomous vehicles become more popular. Millimeter wave sensors are also becoming more affordable, making them more accessible to industries across the board.

Why Does the Telecommunications Equipment Segment of the Millimeter Wave Sensors Market Have a High Market Share?

As technology advances and people become more reliant on their devices the demand for telecom carriers to provide faster network services will grow. This gives rise to the 5G generation of communications technology.

While 5G is still in its early stages, the industry is currently focused on implementing it and determining how to effectively support it.

For these reasons, the telecommunications equipment segment is estimated to have a higher CAGR of 24.3%.

Why E-Band Frequencies Held the Largest Market Share for the Millimeter Wave Sensors Market?

The E-band covers the frequency range of 60 to 90 GHz. The wavelengths of signals in this frequency range from 3.33 mm to 5 mm. Because short wavelengths provide directional signals at these frequencies, this band is widely used for RF/Microwave backhaul links.

In most countries, the E-Band is a licensed or lightly licensed band used for ultra-high capacity backhaul applications with a range of up to 3 km.

It can also be used for longer-distance transmission (10 km in some cases), but due to atmospheric absorption of waves at these frequencies, such systems require extremely high-power levels.

Based upon the above mentioned reasons, it was estimated that E-band frequency held the largest market share of 35.6% for 2022.

Competitive Landscape

Most of the market's leading players in millimeter wave sensors are focusing on partnerships and collaborations to can provide innovative products for emerging technologies such as 5G and IoT.
