Global Bulk Acoustic Wave Devices Market: Snapshot

The market for bulk acoustic wave (BAW) devices has witnessed a significant rise in investment aimed at the development and commercialization of these devices across an increasing number of application areas. These devices find applications in high-end applications across industries such as telecommunications and consumer electronics. For a long time, the high prices of BAW devices restricted their use to industries such as military and defense, however, encouraging R&D activities have allowed the development of low-cost devices over the past few years, significantly increasing their set of applications.

Of late, the market has witnessed a vast rise in demand due to the emergence of the 4G technology. BAW devices are considered superior substitutes over surface acoustic wave (SAW) devices as the former are more compact and suitable for handset designs. Rising demand for miniaturized consumer electronic devices is expected to significantly benefit the global demand for bulk acoustic wave devices in the next few years. The market is also witnessing thorough research activities focused on the reduction of the cost of devices, which could further help their commercialization, driving the market.

BAW Filters to Account for Massive Chunk in Global Revenue

The global bulk acoustic wave devices market has been segmented in the report in terms of device type into filters, resonators, and transducers. Of these, the segment of filters accounted for a massive chunk in the overall revenue of the global BAW devices market in 2016. The segment valued at US$510.6 mn in 2016 and is expected to remain the leading segment, exhibiting a promising 9.3% CAGR from 2017 to 2025.

Bulk acoustic wave filters are preferred over the traditionally used surface acoustic wave filters owing to their several advantages such as much smaller shapes and sizes and capability of providing higher frequency despite having smaller form factor compared to surface acoustic wave filters. These factors make BAW filters the most preferred filters in 3G and 4G applications. Furthermore, bulk acoustic wave filters are much less sensitive to temperature variations at wide bandwidths. This provides steep filter skirt with low loss. Thus, as the usage of 4G technology increases, the demand for BAW filters is also expected to grow over the forecast period 2017 to 2025.
