Global Radio Frequency Duplexer Market 2017-2021
About Radio Frequency Duplexer
A radio frequency (RF) duplexer is a semiconductor device that allows the simultaneous transmission and reception of RF signals on the same path, with minimal interaction between the signals and without affecting their quality. These duplexers are used in various electronic devices such as cell phones, portable PCs, set-top boxes (STBs), tablets, and modems/dongles. The portable PC segment includes laptops, notebooks, and ultrabooks.
Technavio’s analysts forecast the global radio frequency duplexer market to grow at a CAGR of 11.24% during the period 2017-2021.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Bird Technologies, ClearComm Technologies, CTS, Skyworks Solutions, and Wainwright Instrument.
Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Emergence of advanced consumer products. The consumer electronics market has witnessed massive transformations in the last five years. Feature phones were replaced with smartphones. PCs were replaced with laptops, and now laptops are being replaced by tablets. Also, cathode ray tube (CRT) TVs are being replaced by LED TVs and smart TVs. Now manufacturers and application developers are looking to interconnect all these household devices and create a single unit called a smart home, which is controlled by the applications installed on smartphones.”
According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Emergence of advanced consumer products. The number of smartphones shipped globally in 2016 was close to 1.61 billion compared to a total of around 1.4 billion in 2015. This is a massive growth rate, considering the fact that the global smartphone shipments accounted for only 490 million units in 2011. Tablets have also grown significantly in terms of shipments, from 20 million units in 2010 to 161 million units in 2016. The advances in the wireless technology have resulted in the development of new RF features, which are compulsory for smartphones and tablets. The growth of smartphones and tablets is expected to encourage RF device manufacturers to create high-performance RF components that can meet the requirements of the mobile device manufacturers.
Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Increasing RF complexity. An increase in the frequency bands, carrier aggregation, modulation schemes, and power amplifier modes to support the growing mobile data traffic is increasing the RF front-end complexity. With the increase in the RF front-end complexity, designers and engineers are continuously coming up with innovative methods and techniques to create complex multi-chip modules that provide incremental improvements. However, the existing RF front-end technology has only a limited number of OEMs with the ability to develop single reference designs that will work in all regions. Thus, the increasing RF complexity is one of the major challenges faced by the vendors in the global RF duplexer market.
