The SAW filter market was valued at US$ 1,717.68 million in 2020 and is projected to reach US$ 2,826.81 million by 2028; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 8.3% from 2021 to 2028.

A surface acoustic wave is an acoustic wave which travels along the surface of a material that exhibits elasticity, having an amplitude which decays exponentially with the depth into the material. SAW filter is an electronic device which convers or transforms the electrical energy into mechanical or acoustic energy with the use of a piezoelectric material. The process of converting the energy requires two interdigital transducer which are input and output transducer. The input transducer generally creates or transforms the incoming electrical signal into acoustic waves whereas the output transducer receives the acoustic waves and converts them back to electrical energy.

The SAW filter market is segmented into five main regions—North America, Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Middle East & Africa (MEA), and South America (SAM). Asia-Pacific dominated the global SAW filter market in 2020, with a share of 46.0%. The manufacturing sector in developing countries such as China and India has begun adopting Industry 4.0 technologies, which aid in intelligent manufacturing, personalized customization, and network-based collaboration. 5G is the latest communication trend in Asia-Pacific. According to a report by Global Data, Asia-Pacific would lead the region in terms of 5G adoption with 1.14 billion subscribers, accounting for 65% of global subscriptions by 2024. Nine countries in the region, including China, South Korea, and Japan, have already launched commercial 5G mobile services. These technological advancements are supporting the growth of SAW filter market in the region. Further, surge in the adoption of GPS technology in connected vehicles, smartphones, and networking devices would boost the SAW filter market growth. Presence of key players such as Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. and TAI-SAW TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD are continuously engaged in the manufacturing of innovative SAW filters. In November 2020, TAI-SAW TECHNOLOGY CO., LTD launched a series of IF SAW filters for the 5G infrastructure applications, which include base station, networking, and repeater.

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the SAW filter market growth. The outbreak has distorted operational efficiency and disrupted value chains due to the sudden shutdown of national and international boundaries, creating revenue loss and damage. The disruptions in the supply chain are limiting the SAW Filter market growth. However, as the economies are planning to revive their operations, the demand for SAW Filters is expected to rise globally in the coming months. The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered rapid digitization across various sectors where 5G can act as a catalyst. Including the disruptions caused by Huawei export restrictions and the decline in the 4G unit volume, semiconductor demand for cell phones will remain strong due to the higher semiconductor content in 5G phones, especially in RF communications. The 5G technology gained momentum in 2020 due to the launch of several 5G-enabled smartphones. Thus, despite the initial negative effects of the COVID-19 pandemic due to the decline in production as well as disruptions in supply chain, the SAW filter market has started growing again due to gradual recovery of many countries and easing of lockdowns in various countries, which is allowing the re-establishment of supply chains as well as due to the rise in adoption of 5G technologies across the world.

Applications of SAW Filters in Various Industries

SAW filters have applications in a wide range of industries. They are being used in the medical, radar, military, and aerospace industries. SAW filters 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. In the medical industry, SAW filters are also used as a bandpass filter to transmit and receive the section of wireless communication. In the radar industry, SAW filters having a linear delay change over a set pass bandwidth are mostly used. This is also known as time bandwidth (TB). The larger the time bandwidth, the system will be better and more efficient 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 provide band pass filtering for many military communication applications such as receiving and transmitting (Rx) and (Tx) filters, IF filters within Software Defined Radio (SDR) applications, and Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) applications, as well as IF filters in superheterodyne systems. SAW filters are designed in a particular way to provide high selectivity and low distortion for military communication, as well as aerospace applications. Thus, application and demand of SAW filters in various industries will drive the SAW filter market across the world.

Type Insights

Based on type, the SAW filter market is segmented into IF SAW filters and RF SAW filters. In 2020, the RF SAW filter segment dominated the SAW filter market. Radio frequency (RF) refers to the utilization of electromagnetic radiation to transfer the information between two circuits that have no electrical connection. RF SAW filters are used along with the radio receivers to entertain the right kind of frequency along with filtering out the other unwanted bands of frequencies. The RF filters are designed in such a way so that it can operate on frequency that ranges from medium to higher frequencies which is basically megahertz and gigahertz. Due to the RF filter’s operating characteristic it is mostly used in equipment’s like wireless communications, television, and broadcast radio. Most of the RF filters are made from coupled resonator, and quality can determine the level of filtering by these filters. There are four basic type of RF filters—low pass filter, high pass filter, band reject, and band pass filter—based filter topology. The RF filters can filter the noise or reduce the interference of external signals that affect the performance of any wireless communication system.
