The radio frequency integrated circuit market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 10.4% during the forecast period.
RFIC is a chip which transmits and receives radio waves. These chips are used in portable devices such as cellphones, Wi-Fi devices, wireless routers, wireless base stations, telephones, satellite transceivers and microwave equipment. Usually, the smartphones have more than one radios that handle cellular voice and data, GPS and Wi-Fi. Most of these radios contain RFICs. RFICs are largely used in electronic devices that perform functions such as amplification, frequency conversion, and signal filtering. Among the vertical segments – consumer electronics, automotive, government and defense, and others; the market for consumer electronics segment is expected to have highest market share throughout the forecast period. The RFIC chips also have a potential market in the automotive industry. The vehicle-to-vehicle connection, security technologies and automated driving technology, all comprise of RFIC based electronic devices. The concept of autonomous vehicles, such as smart cars, connected cars and driverless cars is gaining ground and thus, the application of RFIC is expected to grow in the future. The automotive segment is expected to grow with the highest CAGR.
Among the application segments, the power amplifiers, wifi and transceivers are expected to be the top three revenue-generating segments. The market size of these segments is high as the adoption of wireless devices is increasing globally. The smartphones and tablets make use of the tranceivers and power amplifiers which contain RFICs. With the increasing usage of smartphones and tablets, the RFIC market is also bound to increase steadily in the forecast period.
The major factors that contribute to radio frequency integrated circuit market growth is the high adoption of Internet of Things (IoT). The IoT adoption rate is speedy in the developed countries such as US, UK, Japan and it is increasing in the developing countries such as China, India. This adoption is expected to fuel the growth of the RFIC market in the future. Another trend observed is the increasing deployment of next-generation Long-Term Evolution (LTE) wireless networks. The increasing penetration of LTE networks globally has forced the semiconductor and electronic device manufacturers to integrate more number of RFICs.
