Long-term demand is anticipated to be driven by an increase in the use of acoustic wave filters in smartphones for antenna routing and tuning for 5G applications. The demand for SAW filters is expected to be the main driver of the acoustic wave filters market during the forecast period of 2021–2031, according to a recent study by Future Market Insights. By 2021, the market will be worth US$ 4.5 billion.
The development of the acoustic wave filter market is anticipated to be aided by a considerable rise in the number of mobile devices across numerous nations in the world. It will be advantageous for manufacturers of radio frequency (RF) filters used to shield sensitive receiver paths from interference caused by signals and noise transmitted from diverse RF sources.
Smartphones employ bulk acoustic wave (BAW) filters to support Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, and other wireless communications while transmitting, filtering, and receiving pathways for 3G, 4G, and 2G up to 15 bands.
Globally, the use of 5G is expanding, and it powers wireless technology in mobile devices. The adoption of new, higher frequency bands like E-UTRA and New Radio Dual Connectivity is expanding to enhance bandwidth.
To lessen the impact of modern RF filters, this band increases the likelihood of interference in mobile devices. To overcome these difficulties in handling higher frequencies, BAW filters with antenna tuning and routing techniques are used.
BAW filters reduce the size of filters for simpler RFFE module integration, saving board space and supporting 5G needs. Due to the rising need for telecommunications applications around the world, the acoustic wave filters market is anticipated to reach a worth of US$ 24,510.6 Mn by 2031.
