Surface Acoustic Wave Filter Market

Global Market Study on Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Filters: Rising Demand from Cellular Manufacturing Sector to Propel Market Growth

Surface Acoustic Wave (SAW) Filter Market Segmented By RF SAW Filters, IF SAW Filters Type in Consumer Electronics, Telecommunications, Automotive, Aerospace and Defense, Healthcare, Industrial


The demand for RF filter technology from the cellular manufacturing sector is increasing continuously, offering new growth avenues for the surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters market. In Long-Term Evolution (LTE) Carrier Aggregation (CA), the need for multiple bands operating simultaneously through one antenna necessitates several added challenges for filters and duplexers.

Hence, carrier aggregation with Multiple-In-Multiple-Out (MIMO) designs will be needed to meet the needs of interim LTE-Advanced, and ultimately, 5G. This will increase the usage of small- and low-cost filters in smartphones, which, in turn, will boost the growth of the global surface acoustic wave filters market.
