The report “Microwave Devices Market Global Forecast to 2027”, is projected to grow from USD 6.7 billion in 2021 to USD 9.0 billion by 2027; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 5.1% from 2021 to 2027.
Major players in the market are Thales Group (France), L3 Harris, Technologies, Inc. (US), Teledyne Technologies Incorporated (US), Qorvo, Inc. (US), CPI International, Inc. (US) among others.
The growth of the microwave devices market is driven by rising military & defense expenditure, growing need for secure and fast communications, and rising demand for microwave devices in patient monitoring. The advent of digital communication has increased the number of satellites to cater to the voluminous data or digital transmission of voices through single communication channels. Thereby creating revenue-generating opportunities for the microwave devices market. The rising penetration of 5G and IoT infrastructure, miniaturization of devices, soaring need for effective and non-radioactive patient treatments, and technological breakthroughs in microwave equipment pertaining to the materials used are expected to attract lucrative opportunities for the microwave devices market.
The active devices segment of the microwave devices market is expected to hold the biggest market share during the forecast period.
The high usage of active microwave devices in various defense and space electronics has led to the segment’s growth. Active devices are widely used for detecting, mixing, amplifying, filtering, and switching microwave signals in standalone equipment. The increasing investments in R&D by the market players to design advanced devices that are compatible with high-speed connectivity requirements are expected to fuel the growth of the active devices segment.
The Ku-band segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR during the forecast period
The ability to adjust the uplink and downlink, as well as relatively less incurred cost, is expected to increase the deployment of Ku-band microwave devices. Ku-band has been a pioneer in implementing high-speed communication channels as it has lower throughput and is less susceptible to attenuation. Furthermore, it has shorter wavelengths, improved spot beam coverage, and requires less investment.
The space & communication segment is expected to grow at the highest CAGR of the microwave devices market during the forecast period.
The increase in the number of high-throughput satellites (HTS) and rising investments in space and related exploration activities are expected to drive the growth for the space & communication segment. The growing prominence of real-time video and audio streaming services has led to an increase in the use of microwave devices in the space & communication domain.
North America region is expected to hold the largest share of the microwave devices market during the forecast period.
On account of the rapid deployment of microwave devices in their warfare equipment, the US and North American microwave devices market is expected to foresee immense opportunities over the forecast period. The US military has emerged as one of the most technologically advanced armed forces in the world equipping modernized warfare infrastructure.
