Global RF multiplexer switch Market 2020: Industry Insights and Major Players

The global RF multiplexer switch market was valued at US$ 660.7 Mn in 2018 and is expected to reach US$ 1092.0 Mn by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 8.1% during the forecast period.

RF multiplexers (MUX) primarily provide a way for multiple RF signals to enter a controlled switch providing a selection of which input can pass through to the desired output(s). RF multiplexers offer the ability to pass through high-frequency signals without signal degradation or loss. The demand for RF multiplexer switch is increasing owing to increasing investments in telecom infrastructure have been increasing across developing countries, owing to the rising deployment of 4G and emergence of 5G networks. India is witnessing high investment in telecom infrastructure and the Indian telecom infrastructure's revenue potential is expected to reach ₹21,500- ₹31,000 crore by 2023.

Apart from these, the growing demand for mobile wireless communications and mobile multimedia applications across the globe is driving the proliferation of mobile devices. The connectivity of mobile devices enables people to share communications and information in unparalleled ways. Because of this increased sharing demand, mobile devices must be able to support and manage ever-increasing data consumption and fifth generation wireless (5G) transmissions. These factors are going to drive the shift towards RF multiplexer switch during the forecast period.

Additionally, companies are also focusing on developing innovative products and are undertaking key collaborations to enhance their product portfolio. For instance, in February 2019, GLOBALFOUNDRIES has announced that the mobile-optimized 8SW RF SOI technology platform has delivered more than a billion dollars of client design win revenue since its launch. 8SW is enabling designers to develop solutions that offer extremely fast downloads, higher quality connections, and reliable data connectivity for today’s 4G/LTE Advanced operating frequencies and future sub-6 GHz 5G mobile and wireless communication applications. 

However, factor such as insufficient bandwidth is expected to impede the growth of the RF multiplexer switch market.

Key Findings:

  • Based on the switch bandwidth, the Upto 2.5 GHz segment is expected to have the highest market share during the forecast period.
  • Based on insertion loss, the Upto 1 dB segment is expected to hold the highest market share during the forecast period.
  • Based on regions, the Asia-Pacific is anticipated to capture a significant portion of the global RF multiplexer switch market during the forecast period.

Recent News:

  • In March 2019, Nanusens, a UK-based nanodevices company, has announced its first commercial product, a CMOS-based 2D motion detector leveraging nanometer-sized electromechanical systems (NEMS), at Mobile World Congress. The devices were built with the same standard CMOS processes used for its NEMS sensors. It will be used in the latest smartphones, especially if it’s co-designed with extra functionalities in CMOS such as the antenna tuner.
  • In June 2018, Wolfspeed, a Cree Company, launched new LDMOS, and GaN HEMT product-28V 2620-2690 MHz Asymmetric Doherty Transistor and 200W packaged GaN HEMT.
