SAW Filters Market Overview
Surface Acoustic Wave Filters or SAW Filters is a device which converts an electric input signal such as electrical energy into mechanical energy or acoustic energy by the use of two IDTs or Interdigital Transducers. This process occurs via a piezoelectric crystal like quartz, lithium tantalite and lithium-naobate. They employ the use of Surface Acoustic Wave technology, which creates the transduction from electric energy to mechanical energy.
Industries that commonly use these filters are Mobile Communications & Telecommunications, Medical, Radar and Military & Aerospace Communications. SAW Filters are fabricated as wafers.
This allows the production of more volumes at lesser costs- allowing filters of different bands to be integrated onto one chip.The important necessities in new SAW filters are minimum losses, temperature stability, low non-linearity, high power duration, and minimum dimensions.
SAW Filters Market: Market Dynamics
SAW Filters technology has provided improved capabilities especially for mobile communication systems and consumer communications. Modern systems provide high speed data transmission with different supportive modes, communication standards, and yet are compact and reliable to use.
Due to the current trend of growth in the number of frequency bands used in mobile devices, more wireless bands are allocated at higher frequencies and this is demanding the production of more devices like SAW Filters which are very dominant in radio frequency part of telecommunication. Due to increasing consumer and communications systems, every electronic system contains at least one saw filter.
The increasing investment of developed nations in space and defense technology, demands non-standard SAW filters, for selective frequencies and performance criteria especially for internal matching and network matching applications. There is a demand for these devices to be highly reliable and ability to work in crucial and mission-critical environments.
As the telecommunications industry is embracing new architectures in the near future, SAW Filters are building on more stringent specifications and it is an emerging market. The global production of more smartphones and 5G technology is aiding this growth.
Most of the companies in major regions like US, APAC and Europe are facing operational and supply chain issues due to the COVID outbreak. However, the shift to remote work will drive demand for networking infrastructure and connectivity.
The restrictions imposed on travel, will allow businesses to turn to more mobile communications and enable consumers shift to more unlimited plans. The ICT services and IOT connectivity services are witnessing a sudden rise during the pandemic due to digital transformations. These factors are expected in favor of driving the growth of SAW filters market.
SAW Filters Market: Regional Outlook
The increasing demand in the consumer electronics sector makes Asia-Pacific the largest growing market for SAW Filters owing to largest population. For the Defense and military sectors, US spends more money on defense than any other country and their investments in conventional military have more regional advantage for SAW technology.
In Europe, owing to the growing market for passive components, the region is expected to be a growing hub for many manufacturers. ICT services and telecommunications have continued its growth on the back of high penetration rates in the GCC region.
In the Middle East, 2020 was expected to be the year for 5G after launch of commercial 5G network in 2019. Due to slow penetration of the industry, and COVID, the region is growing with new initiatives for digital sector.
