Bulk Acoustic Wave (BAW) Filter Market to Expand at Impressive 19% CAGR through 2030; Supply Chain Disruptions Due to COVID-19 Outbreak Impeding Growth


  • Published On : Jul 14, 2020

The number of IoT devices is increasing across various locations, including smart homes, hospitals, and college campuses. To serve this increasing IoT demand, new network models such as mesh networks are being developed that increase the radio frequency (RF) complexity in access points. Due to an increase in the number of users and connected devices, RF front-end modules need to support wireless radio needs and also Wi-Fi additional band needs by increasing functionality and decreasing the size of the device. Due to this, the number of RF-chains in routers and access points increase, and thermal management challenges occur. To overcome the challenge, bulk acoustic wave filters are used, as these filters provide stability over temperature shifts and lower the temperature drift, which helps mitigate insertion loss and leads to good product thermal characteristics. Bulk acoustic wave (BAW) filters offer extremely steep skirts, which simultaneously exhibits low loss in the Wi-Fi band and also resolves the co-existence Wi-Fi and LTE signals within the same device or near one another. These filters address the stringent thermal challenges of multiple input-output systems and multi-users without comprising on emission performance and compliance.

As per the findings of a new market research report by Persistence Market Research, the global bulk acoustic wave filter market reached a valuation of US$ 3.5 Bn in 2019, and is expected to exhibit a high CAGR of 19% during the forecast period (2020 to 2030).

BAW Filters with Antenna Routing and Tuning for 5G

5G implementation is increasing globally, and is creating new challenges for wireless technology in mobile devices. Radio frequency complexity is increasing for delivering higher data rates with 5G. To increase bandwidth, the use of new higher frequency bands such as E-UTRA and New Radio Dual Connectivity is increasing. This band increases the probability of interference in mobile devices, and to mitigate this, advanced RF filters are used. Bulk acoustic wave filters with antenna tuning and routing approaches are used for addressing these challenges, as BAW is advancing toward handling higher frequencies. BAW filters provide low insertion that makes them extremely efficient at dissipating heat at high power levels. BAW filters also save board space as they are smaller, and hence, the filters are easily integrated into RFFFE modules, which supports 5G requirements.
