Global Power Amplifier Market 2016-2020
An amplifier increases the power of a signal by taking power from a power supply. It alters the output to match with the shape of the input signal with high amplitude. It receives a signal from the information source and provides a bigger variant of the signal to some yield gadget or to another enhancer amplifiers. A voltage enhancer gives voltage intensification fundamentally to build the voltage of the info signal. Expansive flag or power amplifiers give adequate energy to a yield to drive an amplifier or other devices, normally a couple of watts to many watts.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global power amplifier market to grow at a CAGR of 13.62% during the period 2016-2020.
Covered in this report
The report covers the present scenario and the growth prospects of the global power amplifier market for 2016-2020. To calculate the market size, the report considers the revenue generated from the shipment of RF power amplifiers globally.
The market is divided into the following segments based on geography:
Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Power Amplifier Market 2016-2020
Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global power amplifier market: Avago Technologies, Skyworks Solutions, Texas Instruments, Infineon Technologies, Maxim Integrated, and Qorvo.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “Increase in wafer size will be a key trend for market growth. The global semiconductor industry has witnessed a shift in wafer sizes over the last 40 years. The size of the GaAs wafers has increased from being 50 mm to 150 mm, as it reduces the cost of manufacturing by at least 20%-25%. The semiconductor industry is now prevailing at 150 mm wafer for manufacturing ICs and power amplifiers. The use of 150 mm wafers is anticipated to continue till late in the forecast period due to heavy investments by semiconductor manufacturers such as WIN Semiconductors toward the upgradation and new construction of fabs for this wafer size.”
According to the report, emergence of next-generation wireless networks will be a key driver for market growth. Growing popularity of mobile communication devices is resulting in an increase in network traffic. This is leading to the increased deployment of next-generation wireless networks such as 3G, 4G, and 5G worldwide. These technologies offer wireless connection similar to home broadband connections. This, in turn, increases the number of users accessing the internet from anywhere, at any time.
Further, the report states that increase in design complexity will be a challenge for the market. The increase in design complexities such as slimmer version, use of metallic case, larger displays in smartphones has led to the degradation of radio performance. The efficiency of RF transmission is calculated by the power transmitted by the antenna divided by the power consumed by the power amplifier to generate transmission. A huge amount of signal strength is lost between the antenna and other receivers in the smartphone. As a result, the power amplifier needs to deliver more power to transmit the signal from the antenna, which reduces the radio efficiency up to 75%.
