Technavio Announces the Publication of its Research Report – Global RF Power Semiconductor Devices Market 2017-2021

Technavio recognizes the following companies as the key players in the global radio-frequency (RF) power semiconductor devices market: Infineon Technologies, Ampleon, Qorvo, and Wolfspeed (Cree)

Other Prominent Vendors in the market are: Ampleon Netherlands, Broadcom, EPC, Fujitsu Semiconductor, Integra Technologies, MACOM, Microsemi, RFHIC, Sumitomo Electric Device Innovations, Toshiba, and WIN Semiconductor.

Commenting on the report, an analyst from Technavio’s team said: “The latest trend gaining momentum in the market is Development of smart cities. The development of smart cities, along with subsequent demand for Wi-Fi chips, is likely to drive the market for RF filters during the forecast period, as these filters assist in filtering the transmission of RF signals in Wi-Fi routers. Government organizations worldwide are putting billions of dollars in the development of smart or connected cities.”

According to the report, one of the major drivers for this market is Increased proliferation of smartphones and tablets. High internet penetration rate and the availability of high data rates at affordable speed are driving the growth of the mobile computing devices. At present, the network traffic is growing at an exponential rate, primarily because of the increased popularity of mobile computing devices. As a result, there is continued deployment of the next-generation wireless standards such as 4G and 5G across the globe.

Further, the report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Requirement for high investment. RF power semiconductor devices require high investment, as their manufacturing process is expensive compared with that of silicon-based RF semiconductor devices. Manufacturers need high-end equipment and advanced technology to produce RF power semiconductor devices. Moreover, the processes involved are also quite complex. Despite the high cost, some of the vendors are still engaged in large-scale manufacturing of RF power devices because, in the long run, the RF power devices will replace silicon-based RF devices. Hence, most of the electronic devices in the future will have RF power semiconductor components.
