Electromechanical Microwave Switch Market: Overview

  • According to Transparency Market Research’s latest research report on the global electromechanical microwave switch market for the historical period of 20172019 and the forecast period of 20202030, increasing adoption of electromechanical microwave switch in aerospace & defense and communication applications is expected to boost the global electromechanical microwave switch market across the world
  • In terms of revenue, the global electromechanical microwave switch market is estimated to exceed value of US$ 1.6 Bn by 2030, expanding at a CAGR of ~5% during the forecast period

High Demand for Electromechanical Microwave Switch in Commercial Aerospace Industry: A Key Driver

  • Aerospace is the most lucrative industry for the electromechanical microwave switch market. For commercial aerospace applications, electromechanical microwave switch is primarily used to route signals that operate at specific frequencies with higher levels of power and large bandwidth.
  • Furthermore, it works efficiently at elevated temperature with low insertion loss and high isolation. Therefore, electromechanical microwave switch is highly preferred in commercial aerospace.
  • High cost and low operating life are major restraints affecting the global electromechanical microwave switch market. However, although functional life of an electromechanical microwave switch is less as compared to a solid state switch, applications that require higher operational lifespan can make use of high-reliability electromechanical microwave switches, which offer incomparable consistency and performance, with operating life up to 10 million cycles. This switch type comprises a ruggedly designed actuator and transmission link that is enhanced for magnetic effectiveness and machine-driven rigidity. Electromechanical microwave switch can also endure more rigorous environmental conditions for sine and random vibration and mechanical shock, and is therefore ideal for aerospace applications.

Increasing Applications of Electromechanical Microwave Switch in Defense Sector

  • Along with land, maritime, and air-based threats, the world is facing cyber-related threats, owing to technological developments and digitization. Therefore, countries across the world are strategizing to invest in digital tools and technology integration.
  • Furthermore, space is becoming a significant part of the global defense industry network as rising international rigidities might pose a threat to space assets such as satellites, which are often banked on for military operations, including missile targeting, surveillance, and communications
  • Thus, intensified geopolitical tension across the world is driving demand for military equipment, which, in turn, is facilitating increased defense spending, further aiding the growth of the electromechanical microwave switch market
  • An electromechanical microwave switch can operate down to DC and up into millimeter wave frequencies of 50+ GHz and is not vulnerable to electrostatic discharge (ESD). It has very high power handling capacity and has no video leakage. Therefore, it is considered irreplaceable in military aviation and military communication. Mil-Aerospace accounted for the highest share in 2020 of the electromechanical microwave switch market, owing to the above factors.
