The report highlights key factors driving the market growth and prominent players along with their developments in the market.


Surface acoustic waves travel along the surface of elastic materials, with amplitude that decays exponentially with the depth of material. SAW filter is an electronic device that converts the electrical energy into mechanical or acoustic energy with the use of a piezoelectric material. The process of converting the energy requires two interdigital transducers, namely, input and output transducers. The input transducers generally transmit the incoming electrical signal into acoustic waves whereas the output transducers receive the acoustic waves and convert them back to electrical energy.


SAW filters are mainly used in medical, radar, military, and aerospace industries. They are used as a sensor in the medical field. The SAW delay line is used as a sensor element for in situ detection of a wide array of stimuli. These filters act as bandpass filters to transmit and receive the section of wireless communication. In the radar industry, mostly, SAW filters having a linear delay change over a set pass bandwidth, also known as time bandwidth (TB), are used. Larger the time bandwidth, more efficient the system would be in tracking and locating targets. Active electronically scanned array (AESA) radar is the newest radar in the market and serves as a great application area for SAW filters. In the military industry,. SAW filters are designed in a particular way to provide high selectivity and low distortion for military communications and aerospace applications.


The key players operating in the SAW filter market are Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd.; API Technologies (UK) Ltd.; Abracon; Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.; Qorvo, Inc.; Skywork Solutions, Inc.; TAIYO YUDEN CO., LTD; Microchip Technologies, Inc.; Kyocera Corporation; and TAI-SAW TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD. These companies have production and distribution facilities of SAW filters and other electronic components in various countries in the world, which helps them in catering to a wider customer base.


Impact of COVID-19 Pandemic on SAW Filter Market

As of May 2021, India, Brazil, Russia, the US, the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Turkey, Germany, Colombia, and Argentina are among the worst-affected countries in terms of COVID-19 cases and deaths. The pandemic has affected economies and industries in various countries due to lockdowns, travel restrictions, and business shutdowns. The electronics & semiconductor sector is experiencing serious disruptions in the form of breaks in supply chains and shutdown of production plants. The shutdown of various manufacturing plants and factories in North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, South America, and the Middle East and Africa has hampered the global supply chain and manufacturing processes, delivery schedules, and product sales. In addition, travel restrictions imposed by countries in Europe, Asia, and North America are affecting business collaboration and partnership opportunities. Further, the electronics & semiconductors sector is facing challenges due to a shortfall in production and insufficiency of transportation facilities.
