Market overview of bulk acoustic wave (BAW) RF filters

The global bulk acoustic wave (BAW) RF filter market is envisaged to witness tremendous growth and will post a staggering CAGR of close to 31% over the forecast period. The rapid proliferation of smartphones and tablets is one of the most important factors driving the growth of this market globally. The emergence of advanced wireless technology, such as LTE, has made the deployment of new RF features compulsory in smartphones and tablets. Therefore, the increased shipments in the tablet and smartphone segments over the last five years is expected to create a huge demand for BAW filters due to their compatibility with higher bandwidth frequencies and growing proliferation of 4G/LTE networks. Moreover, BAW filters have a small form factor and deliver the improved performance which will lead to its augmented adoption in the coming years.

The increasing use of automation technology in the automotive sector is one of the emerging bulk acoustic wave RF filter market trends spurring this market’s growth prospects until the end of 2020. Leading auto manufacturers like Toyota, Audi, and Mercedes have made significant investments in the R&D of automobile automation. The automation of vehicles requires many embedded semiconductor chips for carrying out varied functions such as car navigation and display, infotainment, collision detection technology, GPS, anti-lock braking systems and driving automation. Also, RF filters play a crucial role in establishing a mobile connection with the network to ensure an optimum driving experience. The emergence of connected vehicles is leading to the growing adoption of interface standards like Wi-Fi and LTE for a range of services such as infotainment. Therefore, the increasing demand for semiconductor components, especially RF filters, will indirectly bolster the demand for BAW filters over the predicted period.

Segmentation by application and analysis of the BAW RF filter market

  • Smartphones
  • Tablets
  • Wi-Fi hotspots
  • USB sticks

The smartphone segment led the global BAW RF filter market and accounted for more than 95% of the market share in terms of revenue. Smartphones need to receive and transmit signals for cellular networks such as 2G, 3G, and 4G/LTE in about 15 bands, as well as support Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS. Moreover, the different signals need to be isolated from one another and all unnecessary signals that may interfere have to be rejected. To ensure optimum RF performance, an average smartphone requires up to 20 RF filters to support operations. The proliferation of the smartphone market and the growth in the number of bands that a smartphone supports will propel this market segment’s growth prospects over the next four years.

Geographical segmentation and analysis of the BAW RF filter market

  • Americas
  • APAC
  • Europe
  • ROW

In terms of geography, the APAC region dominated the market and is expected to reach more than USD 11 billion by 2020. Japan is the major revenue contributor to the BAW filter market and because of the early deployment 4G LTE networks, the market is anticipated to witness promising growth in this region. Also, Japan is a manufacturing hub for Wi-Fi hotspot and USB stick vendors. Therefore, with the expansion of 3G and 4G networks, the demand for Wi-Fi hotspot routers will increase, which will translate into the demand for BAW filters in APAC.
