Global Bulk Acoustic Wave RF Filter Market 2016-2020

About the Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) RF Filter Market

BAW filters support RFs in the range of 1.5-16 GHz in mobile devices such as smartphones, tablets, and dongles, as well as Bluetooth devices including GPS. These filters can be small in size or have a lean shape and apply either framework base or ladder formation. Two major types of BAW filters are film bulk acoustic resonators and solid-mounted form of bulk acoustic resonators.

Technavio’s analysts forecast the global bulk acoustic wave (BAW) RF filter market to grow at a CAGR of 30.86% during the period 2016-2020.

Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) RF Filter Market 2016-2020

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global bulk acoustic wave (BAW) RF filter market: Avago Technologies, Qorvo, and TDK.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Skywork Solutions and Akoustis Technologies (Upcoming).

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “One trend that is expected to boost market growth is the growing technological convergence in the LTE network. The availability of multiple features on a single platform is an emerging trend in the global BAW RF filter market. This is possible because of rapid technological advances in electronic devices such as notebooks, laptops, smartphones, and ultrabooks. These devices are increasingly functioning as multifunctional terminals that offer a range of new applications on a single platform.”

According to the report, a key growth driver is the proliferation of smartphones and tablets. Applications in high-end smartphones require BAW filters to support frequencies above 1.5-1.8 GHz. Though more expensive than SAW filters, the cost of BAW filters ranges from $0.30 to $1. BAW filters have the smallest form factor and deliver improved performance. In addition, the ability to process BAW filters on silicon wafer fab increases the demand for filter technology.

Further, the report states that one challenge that could restrict market growth is the increasing RF complexity faced by vendors.
