Press Release

Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global Radio Frequency Signal Generator Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global radio frequency signal generator market: Keysight Technologies, Rohde & Schwarz, Tektronix, National Instruments, and Anritsu.

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Aim-TTi, Anapico, Berkeley Nucleonics Corporation (BNC), and B&K Precision.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Development of 5G. 5G is an integrated, global network that provides a comprehensive IP solution to users where voice, data, and streamed multimedia can be given on a anytime and anywhere basis. 5G is also a driving factor for the growth of IoT. Service providers and vendors are joining hands to form efficient multiplatforms that can support multiple functionalities and applications to have 5G platform.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is The advent of LTE-A. 4G LTE-A is the next version of LTE, which is developed by 3GPP to meet the requirements of International Telecommunication Union (ITU) by standardizing LTE-A that would be a part of release 10. The main new functionalities for release 10 are carrier aggregation (CA), relay nodes support, enhanced uplink, and use of the multi-antenna technique.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is High price of RF signal generators. The RF signal generators are expensive as these are used in testing of the upcoming technologies. Accuracy and efficiency are the key factors that need to be focused on at the design stage of the RF signal generators. In 2016, the ASP of a RF signal generator was $76,857.01, and it is expected to reduce by 5% during the forecast period. The high pricing has given rise to the rental test equipment, and its demand is increasing in the market as it is available at half of the new product's price.
