Global Defense Markets for wide range of RF Amplifiers, Oscillators Frequency Converters, Frequency Synthesizers and Transceivers

Global Defense Markets for wide range of RF Amplifiers, Oscillators Frequency Converters, Frequency Synthesizers and Transceivers.

This report concerns the industry and markets associated with connectorized RF modules going into EW and radar systems in the “West-friendly” world. Products considered include most types of amplifiers, oscillators, frequency converters, frequency synthesizers and transceivers. Suppliers of RF modules designed to operate at microwave frequencies are separated from those designed to operate at millimeter-wave (mmWave) frequencies (these broad bands are identified in the report). Demand-side driving factors include DARPA-driven projects and contracts awarded to major corporations: generally termed ‘Tier 1’ and ‘Tier 2’ (many such contracts are briefly described). Most of these corporations are identified and profiled. 128 OEM companies are identified offering a wide range of types of RF modules and all are profiled. Some of these OEMs are amongst the Tier 2 companies and most are independent organizations. The majority of the OEM suppliers have their headquarters and main operations in the USA – with a substantial number being located in California. Global total addressable markets (TAMs in US$) are presented for base year 2018 and forecasted annually through to year 2024.
